Congratulations to JS, but I hope KB really gets back into this quickly...

This year's cycle has been all sorts of weird.

I applied last year, held --> waitlist, and I have to say this year is a lot more fun. Everybody's either held or pregnant, and Nulli is still around.

If I am waitlisted again, I'm going to work on getting someone pregnant so that I can write a heartfelt LOCI about it over the summer. Thoughts?

:lol:


Arkansawyer was around as well from last year, but he got accepted and everybody called him a flame because of bogus stats in his profile. Thought about commenting but didn't. Seriously though, I withdraw from waitlist with an explanation like "I need moar time for all the formalities" and we are almost in April again because of babies everywhere.

I still don't really understand why they didn't just finish the year with KB. Did they really gain by having a different admissions dean for a month?

April again indeed, amigo. If US News considered Fertility in its rankings, HLS would undoubtedly be a Top 2 school.

KB herself gave birth in January according to latest blog post.

It sounds like KB needed some maternity leave, so JB covered for her and vice-versa. Makes sense in a strange way.

HLS admissions needs a dedicated tabloid.

Oh, wow. I don't know guys, but if they knew they were going to have to switch their admissions dean midway through the year, it kind of would have made sense to pick a new dean who wasn't already, like, eight months pregnant. I'm all in favour of more babies, but all these transitions are a little unfair for those of us that have deadlines at other schools to keep in mind.

I agree that it's frustrating, but then again, they never guaranteed that we would have a decision before mid to late April, did they?

I agree. HLS had plenty of time to find someone to cover for both of them.

Nulli, please post somewhere else if you want to discuss something other than the movement on your app.

+1 if this is as sarcastic as I think it is. JS seems like she's a wonderful person and dean and deadlines really won't seem as important as they do now once this is all over. I think everyone is just a little jumpy about the impending conclusion of our cycles. :)

:lol: I did not mean termination. I thought that with the cost of tuition and their endowment fund HLS could have found some money to get an extra person on their payroll (at least to smooth the transitioning periods KB-JS-KB)

Nope not til next year. But seeing this thread move by 12 posts in a minute's span got my hopes up that maybe they were preemptively sending acceptances to 2012-13 applicants with high numbers :lol:

So you were serious? I was preempting a lengthy women in the workplace discussion with that post, not encouraging them to continue in the same vein. I guess your LSAT LR & RC were easier than usual.
