I'm super excited because one of my close friends from college did TFA and is enrolling this fall, so we can be friends again :D

(also congrats to everyone else and good luck to those still waiting!!)


Congrats! Also, when was your JS1? Stats? When did you get the call? Please update the spreadsheet :)


so I'm one of those people who isn't a fan of internet fame so no specific stats, sorry :(
(also spreadsheets are scary)

But complete 11/7, JS1 11/8, Interview 11/15, JS2 12/18 (obvs :p)

And 75+ish for both I think, I don't remember H's specifics. Hope this helps somewhat? :)

December JS1's -- stay the course !!!


Do you mean that their interviews were in November or that they were invited to interview in November? I got my invitation to interview in November but the actual interview was in Dec.

In general they are referring to when you had your JS1 not the date of the invitation.

Well that's encouraging. Thanks for the clarification. Still freaking out, though! LSN really should make a special fields for Harvard interview invite and JS1.

i also wanted to draw attention to how cool it is that Harvard calls people when accepting them, despite the large school. I'm watching my sister go through the UG process right now, and wow law school admissions committees are so much more personable and friendly than that. it's really appreciated!* :D

On LSN ROYALKHM appears to have gotten JS1 Invitation 11/27, had interview on 12/5 and got JS2 at least an hour ago. :?

No need to worry yet for late November or December invites/interviews.

I'm panicking here with an 11/8 invite, mid-Nov interview, and no JS2

Good point. My emotions are the equivalent of watching a tennis match today. I'm guessing we still have two days of JS2's before the holidays.

JS1s the day after complete are possible? Well crap on a stick. That means I get to start anxious waiting tomorrow instead of after Christmas :?

Oh is right. But maybe they're still going. I assume you also had a JS1 in December? Anyway, forgive my ignorance but what is the spreadsheet? I get most of my info on LSN, does TLS also have some kind of admission dates spreadsheet for Harvard or something (I mean that's what it sounds like, der)?

Has that happened before? I don't see anything like in on LSN for December admits in previous few years, but then again all of those years had earlier December decisions. At this point we're probably just torturing ourselves, though. I'm going home!

It appears that a surge of denials hit during the first month of January, which is I assume right after the Christmas/New Years break ends. And it'll probably all be October/November interviewers.

At the very least, I know I won't have to wait very long to hear back.
