Harvard seems to be holding a lot of people with stellar numbers today.

You JS1d and were held? Last wave was all non-JS1s, right?


/desperately grasping at straws looking for a pattern.

Hey man, you can go to some AMAZING law schools debt-free. Don't sweat this one. I'm sorry ):


That's my take on it! Thanks for the kind words, I really appreciate it.

Stupid question, but is held the exact same thing as waitlisted, or is there some difference I'm unaware of?

Shinton, I'm sorry man. But thanks for at least joining me as someone they liked enough to interview, and turned out to not like enough to accept yet. I think Lavitz is in there with us, too.

Gotta feel like dings are around here somewhere. Also, yes, there were no JS1 holds in the last batch.

I'm really floored that you weren't admitted on Day 1, to be perfectly honest. But it's nice to know that I'm in good company.

Sorry to hear that. Well, if Harvard does decide to accept you, you're automatically JS2. I don't think they give out JS1s twice.

Exactly! In light of the new holds, I feel like the little chances I had just flew out the window.

Outliers. The happen every year. But it's much more unsettling when you know them (or they are ITT with you) than when they are one random dot on an LSN screen.

I haven't gotten the held email yet (js1 early dec), but I hope some of today's results temper the absurd exuberance that has taken over the chances forum this cycle.

Yeah, if you just look at the numbers, it seems weird. Also, what I thought were good softs may have actually worked against me. I'm a non-trad (34) who worked full time for seven years before undergrad, then did an MA, then joined the military. But that may just have added up to "This guy can't figure out what the hell he wants to do with his life" to the adcomm, and that would be a reasonable (though wholly inaccurate) assessment.

The thing that really effs with me, though, is that they were interested enough to interview me and THEN decided to take a pass. It really makes me wonder what the hell I did during that interview that was off-putting, because typically I'm a pretty good interviewer.

Who knows? I wouldn't lose heart if I were anyone else, though...just as there are people with "stellar" numbers who have been held, there are people whose numbers are a little on H's low side who are getting in. If anything, I think that's encouraging.

I hate that I now have to hang on to a small amount of hope. Given the amount of applicants who got in off held decisions in the past, I am trying to convince myself that I should just read that email as a ding and move on. Probably be much easier than checking this thread every day and keeping myself in constant "waiting mode."
