i've got a feeling this latest outreach from an interested law school might have been a mass email...

"Dear %%First Name%

We hear that you are thinking about law school! While you are researching your options, I hope you will consider Ave Maria School of Law, located in sunny Naples, on Florida's Paradise Coast. Today's high temperature is 82 degrees! "




just maybe..

Damn! :lol: Didn't even notice this! There are so many of these coming through LSAC my immediate response is: scroll to bottom, unsubscribe, send to trash.

I think it's crude to email Admissions asking for when more decisions might come out, but Twitter might be an appropriate place to ask this. An admitted student with twitterwithall should tweet at HLSAdmissions along the lines of "Yale tweeted offer timelines last week. What can we expect from Cambridge? #askingformymanyfriends."

Hmm. There appears to be one person in this conversation who meets that qualification.

I tried Twitter for a while, but after receiving some indecorous and obscene spam messages, I had to quit.

I mainly used to tweet updates about my independent study on Victorian sewage systems (srs), so I can see why people weren't too inclined to follow me.

Haha would Sherolock be particularly interested in sewage systems?

Scoobers: In light of what TripTrip said about increased focus on non-KJDs, it might actually help if you updated your KJD graph. Do it during class…I mean you're already in at CLS, so even if you get a D how does it really matter at this point.

if yes: alright, we know they MUST be coming today!
if no: this has been a weird cycle, so we are definitely going to see some action today to break that trend!

This isn't a pretty graph but it's related:
HLS Accepted Students with 0 Years WE:
Avg. LSAT: 174.8
Avg. GPA: 3.93

HLS Accepted Students with >0 Years WE:
Avg. LSAT: 173.7
Avg. GPA: 3.85

It does seem that Harvard prefers people with WE, but the good news is that it's probably not any harder to get in this cycle as a KJD than it has been in other cycles based on JS's comments here (search "conscious"). So there's that, at least.
