Thanks for the advice.


Given that you already updated about a publication, another update about a publication does not seem to add a lot of value. Looking through HLS's eyes, I would wonder what you thought it added/what new aspect of you that you think it brings to their attention that they do not already know about.

Also... submission does not seem like a big deal, especially given the fact that you have an actual publication. Unless, did you specifically mention it in your JS1? If so, this might be a good opportunity to bring yourself back on the map.

I mean, "However, if you have substantial updates to your application, this is a good time to submit them." I am not sure they would feel that it is substantial...


Yeah this is basically how I feel. Sometimes you just need someone to echo your sentiments. The latter pub will be a law review pub, but it still doesn't ring as substantial to my ears. Thanks.

i see an exception being like Harvard Law Review, and the article is about a super interesting legal issue - short of that ... meh.

Still alive! I only went complete 12/17 though so I didn't think I would hear anything until next week at the earliest ding-wise


So pulling for you.

Is this all sarcastic? Have all the mid-Novembers either been JS1'd or held at this point? Should we be bracing for a ding?

There are still a few mid-Novembers without any update (JS1, hold, ding). No clue what we should be bracing for at this point

Oh gosh this thread is long -- I recall seeing a scatterplot that showed submit dates correlated with JS1 dates (or was it JS1 with JS2?) Regardless, can OP perhaps include this in the original post? I went through a dozen pages trying to find to no avail.

Yeah, I'm still here. I wish I'd just get some news already. I'm sick of wondering every day if I'll be dinged.

Checking in. 168/3.55 Non URM. Applied back in mid November. Obviously I dont think I am competitive but I got that email they sent out asking me to apply and my family really pushed me into it. Good luck to everyone still waiting

Checking in

171/4.16

Mediocre softs/LoRs, but I figured I'd throw a hail mary towards Cambridge

early-mid jan, almost enjoying the silence as it allows me to wait longer before I have to embrace my imminent fate as a dinged applicant.

I went complete in he very beginning of December and have since been in radio silence. Obviously I missed at least one wave of JS1s and a bloodbath of holds/rejects. What in the name of god does this mean? Should I be expecting any kind of news? I feel like 2 months is more than enough time for them to tell me that they've lost my application.

I imagine any hope of a direct admit is gone (172/3.8 ), but I figured I'd at least get an email with a status update.
