My whole life in a nutshell. Half her twitter is in screenshots I've sent to my best friends. I'm seriously so in love with her. My gf is unhappy with it for many reasons.

Holy smokes. They really went for it.

Given the "presumptive admit" attitude and that they've been waiting for "over a month" (likely only just) I wonder if admissions would be able to get a sense of which applicant this is. There probably aren't many people with GPA/LSAT >75th (which is what I assume "presumptive admit" means, possibly with some interesting softs,) much less people with GPA/LSAT >75th who submitted an app about or just over a month ago and haven't been admitted.

Ick, I hope not. I fit that description, but I certainly didn't make those tweets.

Even more, I don't really expect GPA/LSAT > 75 means presumptive admit. I think she's been pretty clear in the past that they don't care about your scores once you're "high enough" (e.g., something in her blog about not wanting to admit people who are just good at taking tests). I think it's really the softs that matter.

There are ~190 admitted students in the fb group - so 70% of all admits (190/270)

~7% of admits - 19 - come off the WL, according to LSN: viewtopic.php?t=225363

So there might be ~70 straight admit offers (non-WL) remaining

From the ASW Saturday Schedule:
  • 4:30 – 5:30 A Conversation with Dean Martha Minow
That would be absolutely savage.

Thanks a lot for doing this, extremely helpful (and a tiny bit reassuring).

I'm at Harvard ASW. If there is a hushed murmur during the conversation with Dean Minow, I'll let you folks know. I'm kind of picturing that moment when the White House aide told George Bush about 9/11 in that classroom.

It can also be really easy to use a few vague data points to identify someone. See this study, which determined that 87% of respondents (216 million people!) on the 1990 US census could be uniquely identified by just their ZIP, gender, and DOB.
