I don't think you can make that argument before they've even looked at your app...

Since mid October. relax and enjoy the ride


wow. i guess i'm gonna be chained to a rock watching shadows for awhile, lol.


Nice reference! :) And I went complete mid November and still nothing.. Numbers aren't too great. GPA at 75th, LSAT below 25th.. but not getting dinged already is the good news I'm holding onto..

Has anyone been rejected yet?

That is a huge relief for me, Thanks!!! So there is hope to the people who've been ignored for 3 months :). The people who were rejected applied very early, or it is random?

Based on the graph (come on guys, you can do this too :D ) all of the rejects have been applicants from September or early October.

Nothing's certain. If they haven't rejected you yet, perhaps they are still considering your app. FWIW, I went complete early October and I wasn't invited for an interview until January.

Things I will not obsess over:

1. That the last couple of minutes veered away from LS in convo
2. That I didnt have anything interesting to say about my break this summer.
3. That she didnt say that she'd be in touch.


Grats on it being over dude, I'm sure you're good to go.

Not even a "I hope to talk to you soon"?

Still, I am sure you did well, Worm. No need to fret.

I don't recall getting an "I'll talk to you soon." I remember thanking her way too profusely for taking the time to talk to me and saying goodbye. I don't think it means anything.

On a different note, should I be concerned that I have no new entries under "Mailings" on my status checker, even though I have received a JS1 and have already interviewed? I looked back through the thread for an answer, but it wasn't especially clear...

Post-interview no, but I had something for interview scheduled, like this:
Email - Interview Scheduled
Email - Application Complete
Email - Application Acknowledgment

with the respective dates to the side.

Nothing else new shows up until "admissions binder mailed," days after JS2.

I don't have that line about an interview ever being scheduled ("Email - Interview Scheduled"). But if it's nothing to worry about, then alright. Thank you!

I usually think it's a good sign when conversation veers away from the central topic in question at the end! She's now interested in you as a person, in addition to as an applicant :D

Thank you for this! Made my day. Never thought of it this way and it's very possible.

Are you an auto-admit? I'm still on 1/3 Application Received... maybe that's how they're weeding people out for this, ugh.

If anything I'm the opposite: 3.61 174. Maybe it's a good thing you're not lumped in with me? :D

Relax CC I'm not either. Actually you don't relax. You call and tell me what they say so I don't have too.

You're not out yet, twink. Harvard needs at least 280 people with an LSAT of 173 or higher. This cycle I think the estimate on the number of applicants matching that criteria is well under 1,000. After Yale, Stanford, Hamiltons, and Rubys take some of those, Harvard is going to have to admit a sizeable number of splitters to maintain its medians. They're putting off the splitters until March to see who they have to choose from; little do they know, they'll have to admit most of y'all in the end.
