How will international applicants be notified of their acceptance?
Phone call or email? Other law schools contacted me through email even when their standard mode of operation was making a phone call. The time difference suggests that Harvard probably will also send an email to me instead. But I'm not sure.


If you're in Canada you'll get it by phone. It seems like people in Asia get emails and I haven't noted what the case is for people elsewhere.

Any stats on Harvards transfer policy? Ive heard mixed reviews on whether or not 0L info is taken into account.

Bracing for the worst....

Apologies, I don't have any stats or know where to get their transfer stats. Although I believe there is some information here: http://www.law.harvard.edu/prospective/jd/apply/transfer-applicants/index.html

That being said, I think TCR is to not bank on, or base a plan on transferring to a school after 1L; there are too many variables and external factors that make it risky to base a three year commitment off of this.

Unfortunately, I think this is probably right. If not next, probably soon. It's been a while.

Malcolm Gladwell's recent book, David and Goliath, is not very good/convincing overall, but he does make one point that keeps nagging at me. He discusses the German bombardment of London and how it actually emboldened the residents of London, rather than sending them into a panic as the government had predicted. A NY Times reviewer describes it as a "survivor exhilaration." Gladwell describes the survivors as "remote misses" because they experienced the bombardment, but were not personally wounded or traumatized by it, and they feel invincible as a result. Unfortunately, I think surviving the last four big LSN-reported ding waves has turned me into a remote miss hahaha.

It's just crazy to think that whatever the outcome, we'll know within the next 30 days.

Which also means more good things to come :D


My stress level about not knowing where I will be this August is reaching an all-time high. :|

Is this actually guaranteed? Also, wait listed candidates definitely won't have a final decision by mid-April.

Glad to know that baseless speculation is alive and well among Harvard's applicant pool. Smh.

I think it means everyone will have some sort of answer by the end of April. Whether that means accept, reject, or wait list - everyone will have heard back something.
