about how long does it take to get the admissions package in the mail? Anything I should be doing in the meantime? Do I need to have a login from the admissions packet to fill out financial aid forms?

Took me about a week. You should probably call admissions to get your login information for the admitted students website so that you can sign up for the ASW, which is coming up in two weeks.

Would any of you talented, successful Harvard bound people be willing to read over my Harvard LOCI? Harvard has been my dream for as long as I can remember and my application is currently on hold. If you are willing, please PM you and I will message you the LOCI, which is about a page long. I will be happy to do anything I can (within reason) to thank you for your help--just let me know.

Think so / hope so because I need another pay check between now and then if I'm going to buy flights for my summer adventures... would be really awkward for a deposit check to bounce...

If I send my LOCI in tomorrow and it magically pushes my application over the edge...earliest I can expect an interview? I'm going to email it to Harvard because it is short, but not as an attachment! I expect they will print it and add it to my file.

For the people going to ASW this coming weekend where are you all staying. I am looking for a place with a reasonable rate and I am struggling. I just got in late last week so my plane ticket has already set me back a good bit. Does HLS offer hosts?

Another question for people who have been in for longer than a week: how long does it take to get your financial aid information?

I just got in last Wednesday but had preemptively listed Harvard on my FAFSA and NeedAccess when I submitted it about 2 months ago.... will that help? Are there other forms I have to fill out?

Thanks in advance!

Yes there are various other things you need to fill out. After your financial aid application is complete, there is generally a 10-business-day turn around, it could take a little longer or a little shorter.

You wanna start here: http://www.law.harvard.edu/current/sfs/index.html

Log into "MyHLS Financial Aid" at the bottom and go from there,

You'll need your login info to get on there but here's a general list of possible documents to keep in mind. Your actual list will depend on your personal circumstances:

(Well, this is a bit of a humiliating predicament.)

So, I'm trying to send in my enrolment information (check + deposit form) but I seem to have misplaced the special envelope we're supposed to send them in. Any ideas how to go about fixing this?

I just got my HUID today and when I went to request a pin it says I have to show up in person at some building to get it. Anyone else have this happen. The email says that I will get my PIN via email but that does not seem to be the case.

It gave me the option to either get it in person or by email. It was on the page right after you put in your HUID, last name, and birthdate.

Me too. I successfully did it by email.

So now I have a password for my Harvard email and admitted students website, a PIN for the financial aid website, and a second PIN for... something else? Anybody else confused by all these different logins?

It is strange that the systems don't seem to be more integrated, as they are at most universities :/.

I'm having the same issue. There is no option on the page for pin via email.

Are those of you who don't have the email option in the Boston area? Maybe they want you to come in person if you're nearby?

No, I'm in the South, and I also don't have an email option. I will be visiting this weekend, but I doubt it's related to that.
