On another note, who's still left? I'm still at JS0 and have heard nothing since November. At this point, I'm just deciding to call it a day haha


I'm still JS0 as well :(

I spoke too soon - dinged at last.

I feel a tremendous weight off my chest even though it was a rejection. I must say that all the waiting really was beginning to drive me crazy.

Congrats again to all who were accepted and waitlisted!! :)

Soooo... what's the best thinking on what will happen with JS0's in the month of April?

Do they ever WL people they haven't interviewed? Or can JS0's just expect ding soon?

Well I think I just broke a record. Harvard just sent me an email that my application is NOW complete. I might as well wait till August to receive my rejection letter... Beginning of April for a complete application, is that even normal?

Congrats to all of the admitted. :D

Thanks draw :) Like I said, I somehow don't feel as bad about it as I had expected, given how long they made me wait. I'm rootin' for you and the other waitlisters though!!! I'm sure you'll hear your share of good news since you want HLS this bad :)

Dinged 10 mins ago. Applied 2/27, complete 3/19. Really had no business applying. Below both medians, but really strong softs. Good luck to those who are left!

Same here. I was technically complete on 03/31/2014 (per the status checker) but only received an email confirming it today at 9:58AM EDT.

When did you apply?

Anybody here waitlisted twice? (last year, and this year?)

I was waitlisted last year, had a JS1 shortly afterwards, and...was rejected in late August.

Applied again this year with essentially the same stats (LSAT = 25th percentile, GPA > 50th percentile; unique softs; non-URM)
and was waitlisted again several days ago...

Obviously, my LSAT explains most of it...but still trying to make sense of getting WL twice!

Just curious, why not re.take between then and now since you had a whole year?

You were a candidate worth potentially admitting, if space became available, last year. Your stats haven't changed (presumably, as you didn't mention a change). You remain a candidate worth potentially admitting, if space becomes available.

I was consumed with work....didn't have much time to really study/think about re-taking. But in hindsight....should have definitely done it!

Apologies for the l8 response. I applied on 28/02, you? This is insane. I applied to Columbia too, and I haven't even had a complete from them.

I think I've entered Law School purgatory.

I applied on the deadline in early March – still haven't heard from Columbia either and I had that in on the deadline as well.

Law school purgatory is better than law school hell ;-)
