I really hope things start to move soon but is it possible that the class is full? Have there been years when there was no movement on the WL?

I looked at LSN, and there have been people taken off the waitlist every year with the exception of 2003-4. However, that was the first year LSN was running, and there are far fewer data points.

Yea, I highly doubt that the class is full considering previous trends. Also, in 2003-2004 there was probably a few WL acceptances, as some people reported that their decision was in June. They just didn't know how to say "WL -> A" yet.

It's been 19 days so far. No idea why it's taking longer than normal...

KB is pregnant again? They went on vacation? (The latter one is actually somewhat possible...)

Just to save you time my friend called last week (i think it was Thursday or Friday) and they said they had not made any new offers. Also they will not tell you if the class is full.

Next Blog Post:

Dear Admitted Students (FYI everyone on the waitlist is now considered an "Admitted Student"),

Because of the recent crisis in legal education, we have decided to take bold and decisive action. As of June 1, 2012, Harvard Law School will officially be known as "Harvard Law School, a subsidiary of Harvard Business School".

Your core curriculum will be identical to the HBS curriculum for the first two years of your program. HLS will also reduce the length of its term from three years to two years. In addition, all HLS professors will be retained and maintain their current working spaces. They will have no interaction with HLS students.

We believe these steps will enhance Harvard's ability to provide you with a practical legal education in an ever changing world.

Sincerely,

HLS (a subsidiary of HBS).
"We educate leaders who make a difference in the world."

Hmm...for me, my hope is Tues to Thurs. I feel like it's less likely for them to send out KB1s on Mon or Fri.

Hey, I figure now is about the right time to mention this. If you're really set on going to HLS and are feeling discouraged, you should know that I met one student in my class this year who was accepted about a week before classes started (sometime in August). So don't lose hope, even if it's slow going... there will continue to be acceptances (even if only a few) throughout the summer. This happens every year.

"Continue" may not be the right verb, seeing as there haven't been any acceptances yet :D
