Since apparently everyone in this thread speaks Russian, I think we could actually do this.

Seemed like it would be fun (and it was). Can't really get into specifics since I've probably already outed myself to any Russian speaking adcomms.

Let's just hope Asha isn't fluent in Russian (although she might be :!: )

so spent some time looking over LSN from last cycle. It seems like all that is left to this cycle is a giant reject wave on 3/30 and a giant wait list wave on 4/16 that nobody ever moves off of. Am I missing something?

gg, besides the very occasional asha call to the late submits (some people just went complete and they promise to review each application indiscriminately)

when did you apply?


March 4th of course!

The way I see it, you can't lose hope until I get "complete" because Asha said: "First, I review each file. Files are read in the order they become complete -- in other words, we do not sort by grades or LSATs." Therefore if mine isn't complete yet, it means it hasn't reached the top of the pile. This in turn means some applications are still being reviewed.

Promise to update as soon as mine goes complete!

[4:50 EST] Complete. I hear the ding-aling bells a ringin'

I was a March 4ther (at 11:50 pm, of course!) and just went complete a couple days ago. You should be complete soon.

I don't - I only decided to apply to law school in November, and subsequently took the December LSAT. I had no idea I wanted to go into law (parents are lawyers - natural aversion) until I started working at my IP consulting firm, and even then it took a few months to sink in. I was considering passing over this cycle (as per TLS advice) but in the end decided to apply any way. It would have been very out of character for me to not even give it a shot, as the only major repercussion is a few hundred bucks. Applying was the best decision I made this year - late or not!

Best of luck to everyone!

you mean that there are no acceptances left?(or a very small number: 1,2,3-10 :) ?)

Didn't applications open up later than usual this cycle?
I didn't have all of my ducks in a row until the October LSAT came back, so I didn't pay a ton of attention until November.
(this is me giving CPR to my hopes and dreams)

...So, was speaking Russian some sort of admission requirement I was unaware of?

(Yale, if it matters and if you're reading this, my best friend speaks Russian! Which is almost like me speaking it except for how not at all.)

Thanksgiving complete here... at this point, I really just want an answer. I'm totally emotionally okay with going to Harvard and this is the only thing stopping me from sending in the deposit.
