At this point, would it be in my interest to send an LOCI, or is that something reserved for after action on their part?

I've been admitted at CCN, so I'm not going full-on insane, but HLS looms large...


Just not really sure it will help. Id expect to hear something, including a hold, by cob friday.

Has anyone been WL yet? I see on LSN that someone's status is WL but they may have meant held.

HYS definitely cares.


Word. I counted the number of HYPS grads who RSVPed to the March ASW. There were 73, or 28% of the lot. Gotta love them feeder schools....

Seems like half were from the ivies in the facebook group. Half were certainly from the ivies, mit, georgetown, cal, Stan, ucla, usc, duke, etc.

The TLS cw "undergrad doesn't matter" is actually "undergrad doesn't matter except for HYs" but people often leave out the latter half.

Sad thought for us public school children :( and not the elite public schools either

I still contend that it also matters for CC but yeah, I'm glad people are finally agreeing with me that it does matter at the very top.

I think it's a different kind of strength, outside of LSAT and GPA.

My no-name public school fits perfectly into my application narrative. So I'm all about it. (Plus I went for free :D )

Point is, there's hope for the public school proles at HLS.

Congratulations, Tekumamba. Also, Sabanist (and others), I'm from a mid-tier public school. We send 8-10 kids to HLS each year. Undergrad doesn't seem to matter as much for HLS. But for CLS, SLS, and YLS, it's a different story. Very few from my school are lucky enough to be admitted there.

8-10? Impressive. I'm the only one I know of, and one of my LOR professors said she'd never heard of someone going to HLS from here. One of my bros is held, though.
I think my UG is a big part of the reason I haven't heard from YLS yet (and will probably get bad news).

8-10 is "very few"? :shock:

Nobody from my undergrad has gotten into HLS since like 1980.
