well seeing as no more acceptances seem to be going out. I think it's time for the fat lady to sing:

Hrmmm... obviously my consolation isn't really of any help to you, but don't you have killer stats (on my phone and don't feel like poking in your history to find it), like a 174 and 4+? I'm shocked they haven't taken you, especially since they seemed to me to have dipped a little lower than usual stat-wise for many WL admits this cycle. I wouldn't be at all surprised to hear that H is struggling to maintain its medians this year, which would suggest that somebody above both of them would be in an even better position than usual.

Assuming H doesnt work out, are you ending up somewhere you're happy with? You definitely committed to attending this fall or is reapplying an option? Second time did the trick for me, just FWIW.


Sorry I missed this! I've been off TLS lately... and yeah I guess I have stats that are definitely on the higher end (174 and ~4.0). I have a theory about why HLS isn't very keen on accepting me this cycle, but it's nothing with my application or background that I could have changed. I'm thrilled with where I'm ending up next year (Columbia) and while I would love to hear from the HLS admissions office, I'm happily moving on with my life until then! :)

Oh, and the blog post that I was referring to was posted just last week (July 12th): http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/admissions/2012/07/12/hls-hill-info-session/

Sorry about that Genki. Given my similar stats, I bet mine is on the way soon.

Given my inferior stats... My gmail must be broken or something :D :D :D

Way to send out just one rejection ON A FRIDAY, Harvard! Now we all have the weekend to anticipate our own emails. Although, in reality, I'll probably forget about this as soon as I fall asleep and remember only when I get an email starting with "thank you..." from Harvard Admissions. :D

I'm sorry to hear, AmoryB. Hope you're pleased with your other acceptances.

I was hoping we wouldn't get to this stage until mid-August, like last year.

In fact, I'd love to stay on the wait list until the very very end - like the first or second week of class. So when that surprise spot opens up there's no one left but me! :wink:

We're allowed to dream, right?

From your photo, you appear to be a priveleged white male (albeit from 200 BC), maybe that is it?

When I created my login name, I didn't realize it'd be meaningful on this thread. I'll probably get a rejection letter while enjoying my time at Columbia orientation. It's been fun. Good luck with law school, everyone.

Any other updates recently? It seems strange that there was only one reported rejection e-mail. Also, sorry for getting anyone's hopes up with this thread bump.

Did everyone else's email mention the possibility of transferring in 2013?

Everyone look up your status check right now.

Anyone have anything strange to report, like it says you've been dinged but haven't gotten an email?

Nothing yet for me. Still hanging in there I guess. Sorry to those who got e-mails today, but I'm sure everyone already has other great plans.

hahaha it's not really hope... if they call me last minute, I'll already be two weeks into my semester... makes it kind of difficult to change plans.

Yeah, I hear you there. I'm headed to move into my apartment in New York this weekend, so I'm pretty much in the same boat.
