Just got done with my KB1. She called a little over halfway into the time window. Very nice and personable :) She only asked two questions, What are you up to/what's taking up your time, and Tell me about your path to the law. I asked two questions, one she said she didn't have the answer to but she told me what she could. Strangely, I feel good about it :D

Good luck to all the other KB1s and those still waiting on their's!


Did she say anything about when you might hear back?

Nope, and I didn't ask...felt presumptuous :?

I figure they'll get back to us asap. Their second ASW is this weekend, perhaps they want to get decisions out to give people the option of coming. :)

This waiting game is ruining my psyche. I heard Zittrain is doing a iLaw class for the admits this weekend! So bummed.

So the KB1 set of last week concluded on Friday.
Probably the last set until after the waitlist.

But if we do get in, then we'll get to be a part of all the rest of the fun :) Optimism! Optimism!

that's the spirit!!! everyone, it is way too early to be this down in the dumps. harvard traditionally pulls lots of people from the waitlist. :) (which is soo worth the cost/inconvenience in the long run)

Absolutely! And the Harvard WL is certainly not a terrible place to be, I'm sure everyone on it has wonderful options. That said, the last reported KB2s were last Wednesday so I hope there will be more today or tomorrow. Good luck everyone!

I'm sure you did fine! Just curious, did you send in a LOCI that explained "Why Harvard?" I'm interested in why she's narrowed it to two questions...speed or because she read LOCIs and knows your answer to Why Harvard...

+1 for speed. I didn't have anything about Why Harvard in my LOCI. Also, I basically just asked her Why Harvard and then added my own reasons--which were complementary--because it was a point I wanted to make.

I definitely felt like I was babbling a lot, haha. But it's hard not to, I mean this might be the most important phone call we've ever had in our lives! Karen seemed pretty tight on time, though.

Had my KB1 a couple hours ago. It took 4:52 according to my phone timer... She asked what I was up to, some questions about my work (work is law-related), what kind of law I was interested in, and that was it after I asked her about Harvard. Doesn't look like I had a babbling problem.
