Ugh why does Temple Law need to be emailing me today?? I wish my phone could have a special tone for Harvard emails.

Sounds like a mutual fund prospectus. "Past performance is not indicative of future results."

Sorry to hear it. But I can identify with the sentiment that in a way it will be a weight lifted.



Agreed. If I'm going to get denied, I want it to be in this wave. A ding from Harvard, my top choice, would bring a sense of closure to my application cycle. But, I'm so sorry to hear bad news from so many outstanding people :(

I'm pretty sure this application cycle has put me on watch at work. I must have the worst productivity in my office.

Not gonna lie. It makes me a little nervous thinking about all the posting you're doing while presumably driving your taxi around.

I have a bunch of midterms coming up. Let's just say my studying has suffered a bit with this waiting game.

Also, condolences to our fallen brothers/sisters. Worrying to see a JS1 with toast's numbers in that pile.

Wow, a lot of ugliness today. Sorry all dings.

Dr. Pepper, Toast, Thin Mint... I'm wondering if maybe HLS has gone Atkins or something. Yossarian are you full of carbs???

Though I'm still hoping here I know that I'd be OK with some of the other great schools I got into. I hope you folks feel similarly. I know we'll all end up in great places and have a lot of success.

Hey guys, first time logging in. Thought I would share my stats.

Denied with a 174 and 3.93. Pretty good softs (president or vice president of several clubs, started a business, etc), K-JD. I think one of the deciding factors was that I had a bad JS1 (at least I think I did anyway). Surprisingly, I am not that upset. The way I see it, sometimes there is a benefit in not getting what you want. For me at least, it makes me want to work that much harder in the future. For those who have gotten denied, try to make the best of the situation. For those who haven't heard, best of luck. There is still time to hear good news.

I feel like, with those stats, the bolded had to have played a decisive role.

Sorry to hear. Those are really good stats, Why do you think you had a bad JS1? Did she talk about being a k-jd in your interview? If I may ask
