It makes sense this is delayed from last year, since the Feb LSAT is being accepted, they are probably being super cautious.

I still hold this week. Because baseless speculation has been so great in the past...

Do you guys remember that old Fountains of Wayne song? I don't really remember the words, but I think it went something like this:

"Jess Soban has got it goin' on,
She's all I want, and I've waited for so lo-ong,
Jessie can't you see, Harvard is the school for me-ee,
I know I might be wrong, but Harvard is where I belong."

Applied a few days after the application opened, missed the wave of rejections, but also did not receive an interview invitation. Below 25% in both GPA and LSAT, but WE is out of the ballpark and I think it should give me a shot. Given this post https://blogs.law.harvard.edu/admission ... dest-part/ and the statement that those who haven't received a decision are still under consideration would fellow TLSers recommend trying to proactively solicit an interview since it has been over four months or would y'all recommend waiting it out for a decision?

Do not proactively solicit an interview. Did you read her blog post? That's the exact opposite of what she wants you to do. :D

Thanks for the advice, proactively solicit was a big stronger verbiage than I had intended. And yes, I read the blog, which said "anything else you think could materially impact your application." Kind of just want to tell them that an interview would materially impact my application!

I'm new to this thread but just thought I'd let you guys know...I got my JS2 today around 5 EST so seems like a good bet that tomorrow is the day.

Lol they know that an interview would materially impact your chances. They want you to tell them something else that would make them want to give you an interview. But I would caution not to send in frivolous stuff. They'd rather you not send anything in unless it's substantive (promotion, award, new grades, etc.).

Congratulations, Cvolz!


Are you sure the decisions came today, and they aren't just updating it today?

Ha. JK!

Sorry for the scare. Yes, I think you're right; they're just updating today.

Panic does this to me.


Don't worry, common mistake

So back to this gem.

Could you give us some additional details? Complete date? Interview Date? Stats?

JS was not kidding after all when she said in the blog that we would receive a notice once a decision has been made.
