Is this only for ED?

uh..no.

1) HLS doesnt have ED

2) Only some (around 15%) of applicants get scheduled for an interview (KB1)...if you don't get one, you're screwed

3) Out of those with a KB1, 2/3 will get accepted.

Basically, only if HLS "likes" you will you get an interview...w/o an interview, you will not get accepted


Really? I'm sorry if this is obvious, I have applied to HLS but I have a feeling I won't get in (my LSAT is only 168) so I haven't paid as much attention to their admission process as to the other schools I am applying. I was seriously sure that they admitted a lot of applicants without interviews! So basically if you don't receive a KB1 you're sure not to get in?

Yes, one way to do honors at my college was a interdisciplinary minor with great book courses and thesis.

Mine is centered on my work computer (a Dell) and not centered on my personal computer (a Mac). So which ever one of you is right, it must mean good things for me! :)

That's why you're applying to HLS. No published grades/rankings=everyone is special.

They admit some people without KB1s but they are the exception and usually auto-admits. The only person I know, personally, that got into HLS without a KB1 also got into YLS and SLS. I think they might also take people off the waitlist without KB1s but that's probably not the ideal way to get in.

Sooooo no news? I'm about to file a missing report for Karen B. There is no other reason for why there has been silence for 3 weeks.

Probably waiting for the app deadline at the end of the month before making more decisions?
