I think that'd be helpful. She encouraged sending materials that would supplement your application in a new way. It should discuss cool things you've done since aimproved ugh as improved grades (via an updated transcript) working on a campaign, new job, etc).

I'm still kinda confused about the rest of us (those who submitted after the held group). Looking at lsn they have rejected people up until the 11/05 submission date. I know that lsn is not representative, but if you submitted after 10/13 but before 11/05 and didn't get rejected, where do we stand? should we expect a new batch of holds or could we still be rejected? Harvard is really confusing this cycle.


How about those of us who submitted before 10/13 but haven't heard anything? How many of us are out there?

Congrats nametaken!

I just received the complete email this morning. Is there any point in sending an additional LOR after this? Or are they basically done reviewing my application? I don't expect to hear anything for a while.

Submitted on 10/13, I'm going to change your criterion of "before 10/13" to "NOT after 10/13" :)...haven't heard anything, fun times isn't it?

+1. Story of my life.


Cynically, I'm imagining that the applicant batch for this period might have been a lot weaker than typical and they're informally holding people as they evaluate recently submitted applications from the December LSAT batch. Pure speculation.

Applied 10/20-ish
UR- 10/26-ish
Complete 11/10
No word since. URM

Not a URM. Canadian though + Canadian UG, so not your regular applicant either.

I'm not a URM either, though I'm an American with an International UG, which makes me different I guess.

They seem to have left a lot of us with international UGs hanging. I'm betting we'll get decisions as a group soon.

I got mine late morning, though there doesn't seem to be a definitive time in which they're sent out, though I can't remember many early morning/late afternoon ones.

I'd be happy to stand aside for you Chuckles McGee, by far my favorite name on TLS. Can we still be friends when you get into Harvard?

Sure, assuming neither of us drowns in an avalanche of rejection emails. I don't do posthumous friendships or anything kinky like that.
