I kind of agree with you on that one. I've never worked in an admissions office, but there was a Spivey post recently that said AdComs get tons of stuff and you don't want to piss them off. I can't tell you what to do, but if it were me and I really wanted to send something I'd probably keep to a SUPER short e-mail kissing a little Boston behind and reminding them of your score.
"Dear Harvard: Thank you so much for everything you do to review our applications thoroughly. As the admissions cycle winds down and I consider my options, Harvard remains my top choice because BLAH. I am sure LSAC has sent you my improved LSAT score. I hope the committee will evaluate this favorably when reviewing my application" or whatever.

But I think if you have something really awesome to add to your app, that might change things. "Since submitting my application I have become the dean of Yale law school and cured cancer."

Just my two cents.

ETA Here's the spivey post http://spiveyconsulting.com/blog/timing ... nd-timing/


Thanks! I had read the post. BUT I did turn the letter into a more fully-developed LOCI. I highlighted my super-PI-heavy npo job. Also, kissed MAJOR ass. MAJOR. MAJOR ass.


I will be anxious to see if this works out, because it's almost in direct opposition to Spivey's advice :lol:


I've honestly given up much hope of being accepted by HLS period. This was more of a hail mary than anything.

I'd be curious too. Like I said, I have no idea what the facts are, but I figured Spivey might know more than I do.

Also, I did submit a LOCI to another school where I appear to be "held."

Good morning!

a) This was way too close to the second page.

Haha I read that quote and thought, "wow, we have a really good writer ITT." I figured you were quoting someone from a few pages ago or something. Then I read the name.

This. It would just be nice to see some (positive) movement after last week's not-so-positive wave.

Can anyone recall the latest Complete date to receive a rejection?

On a more positive note, I predict (based on a combination of hopeless optimism and weekly trends) both JS1 and JS2's by the end of the week.

Do they have the Feb LSAT scores yet? Or do they get those mid-March?

I would be shocked if there isn't another wave of JS1s or JS2s on either Wednesday or Thursday which is a couple days before ASW, based on previous cycles.
