Sorry, thelawschoolproject!! Although, there is still hope since Harvard usually takes a significant number of people from the WL. :)

Meanwhile, I have heard NOTHING since I was held in Jan. What are they doing in Cambridge?!

Thanks amc! I'm not sad about this...I'm elated that I'm Harvard's secret girlfriend...the one he keeps around but doesn't tell anyone about. :)

Patience will not aid...we should look to our sins and repent. The night is dark and full of terrors.

Held in February and just got the offical waitlist email. It's better than I really expected but still sad.

Huh...I guess the WL notifications are rolling throughout the day, instead of it being just one WL dump.

They're making this process way more painful than it needs to be.

Waitlisted this morning. Had been held since Jan. No KB1 and URM. My numbers are really low for Harvard, so I am definitely of the just happy to be here variety. This kinda makes me want to retake the LSAT and reapply if I don't get in. Anyone know if such applicants are generally at an advantage or disadvantage with law schools?

Yea. If we're all heading for the WL/Ding, then why are they drawing out this process over the week? Why not just dump them all on a random day?

This being said, perhaps they're waiting to see yield numbers for a few KB1s? Maybe that's the hold-up in WLs? I'm probably just being optimistic here, but that's the only logical reason I can think of.

Thinking the same thing. If I was waitlisted with my numbers who knows what could happen if I brought my score up to what I was actually PT'ing at.

I've tried my best to ignore Harvard but it's not working today. Tooo much false hope.

+1 Just got this clever email from those loathsome bastards...and it really says "Dear [Name]:"
"Dear [Name]:

Whether you are captivated by criminal law or impassioned by veterans’ issues, a UDM Law legal education extends well beyond the classroom. Third-year student, Jade Nabbouh, takes a moment to explain how his work with clients in our Immigration Law Clinic has advanced him professionally and enlightened him personally."

Thank you CAS for leaking my information to these worthless douches. :x

Well that's a bit harsh.

Yeah, UDM got me twice today. Once when they addressed me as "Dear [name]," and again with their ridiculous email titled "You Do Matter to Us"...

What's taking both Yale and Harvard this long?? I never thought I'd be checking my emails this late in the cycle.

Still nothing at my end. Getting waitlisted at Yale made me feel better about my chances, but I'm not so sure again...

Ok, if Scratchable is still waiting there's no way everyone is getting dinged. You're definitely getting at minimum a WL with those numbers.
