Dinged via e-mail just now.

No surprises--applied late and have sub-25th LSAT/GPA. No interview request at all.

Sorry to the other dings today, and good luck to the rest of you all.

Thanks... stings a little to get both NYU and Harvard dings in the same morning, but I'll survive.

Ugh I can't take all my nervousness about maybe getting dinged today. I keep refreshing my email.

I'm gonna just sneak out of work and go to a bar. Hopefully I won't be too drunk when JS calls with a JS2 later today. tt yall l8r

Dinged today, but was expected. I submitted what scientists refer to as a, "YOLO application."

Edit: I must admit that I am disappointed at not having received a hard copy rejection. Guess I'll have to go to campus and chip a rock off a building to secure a piece of Harvard. :lol:

Yeah, but what other way is there to do it? (Not a rhetorical question. As a thought experiment, what would you write if you were in charge of drafting ding letters/emails?)

Personally I would def add a line like "[insert person who's v successful and preferably famous today] was also denied admission to HLS in the fall/spring of [year], and she/he has truly found a rewarding path through both the legal academy — at [other gr8 law school] and profession — at [Bigshot & Fancypants LLC]."

I would just prefer something like 'We cannot select you for admission. Good luck and consider reapplying". The sugar coating (or at least the extreme sugar coating) seems disingenuous and cringe-worthy to me.
