You applied to only two schools?


Yeah, I have kind of a weird plan. If I don't get in this year, I will open it up to other schools next year. I'm serving with AmeriCorps and have a relatively late end date that precludes attending most other T14 schools. Plus I wouldn't want to defer cuz then I'd lose scholarship $. S and H are the only schools I'd feel comfortable about attending base don 0 to very little $.


I was going to apply to only HYS but I didn't have the balls, really. I had entirely different career plans if I didn't get into one. Luckily, I got into H. I should have stuck to my original plan. Why didn't you apply to Y? Your numbers make you competitive, I think.


Nah, thanks for the compliment, but I don't think I'm getting into Y. If H or S doesn't happen, I'll just do a broader cycle next year. Congrats on getting in, btw, happy for ya bruh :)

Held this morning also. Like others have said, it really looks like some great candidates are being held so I'm definitely going to stay optimistic. I guess it doesn't hurt to be t6 secure already either...

Wow, a lot of holds since last week and not a single KB1. :shock: Did anyone who's been held submit after 12/1?

Uh. I think a rejection is headed my way seeing I wasn't held with this last wave which is basically all people with superb numbers.

Thank you Harvard for holding majority of your app pool. I feel like holding people is KB's signature move. The way this is going we should all just move over to the held forum and ignore this one. I mean it feels like the whole of tls was held.

Same. Well, more mid-Nov. UR on status checker 11/28 I think, Complete email 12/8. No movement since.

Haha, I appreciate the response. I'm straight outta undergrad, which may be working against me. I'm glad to still be in the running!

Hopefully not the finishing move. I guess in terms of maximizing the incoming class it would make sense to hold everyone who isn't an auto-accept or auto-reject until you've gotten all of the applications for the cycle, right?

That would certainly make sense (unless they have some policy whereby all holds need to be reviewed by X people, in which case marginal candidates would just needlessly multiply work), but it hasn't been the case thus far.

People with really good numbers who are 2/2 at NYU and Chi have been rejected outright!

I don't remember hearing about any KB1s coming last week at all...

You're right, the last KB1 email I can find on LSN went out 1/6. http://harvard.lawschoolnumbers.com/app ... order=desc

Hey, I'm just here to join the "On Hold" club. Numbers in profile. I'm just out of undergrad, FWIW. I'm not really upset - good luck to the rest of y'all.

So I looked at last years thread and it is possible (low probability) that someone held could be in the next wave of kb1s. One or two people reported getting kb1s 3 days after they were held. Hopefully this happens again this week or so.

Wow, nice work digging that up.

Now I have something to be overly optimistic about for the next few days!!!

Late applier here (2nd Jan 2012); still not UR or complete on HLS status checker yet. I'm a true international and K-JD, so definitely not getting my hopes up.

It seems the holds are done for now? At least in the previous day, some people had already gotten the emails by 11am...
