And yet some of us will speculate that HLS isnt going to celebrate Presidents' Day this year.

Failing HLS not celebrating President's Day now that the PEOPLE have spoken to make me Precedent in the biggest victory EVER. SAD!

Grain of Salt Warning:

HLS 3L here, and I'll start by saying that you all know this data far better than I do :D . But from an institutional perspective I'd be really surprised to see HLS cut their class size. You might have seen where FAS is cutting their graduate admissions by 4.4% - but a lot of the reasons for that don't seem to be effecting the law school (at least not substantively, Harvard always QQs about being poor), nor have I heard anything about size cuts. It's 100% true that I'm in no inner admissions inner circles, but I do have semi-ongoing email conversations with the admissions dean and am good friends with the student body president, and this is something that has never come up. My guess is that the size will follow historical trends, as already mentioned.


I don't suppose any of these conversations have to do with when JS2s are sent?

I probably should have pre-answered that question. :lol:

Sadly no, it's mostly to do with outreach/orientation/ASW type stuff, and even then more on the back-end. As much as I would love to drop some Russia-tier HLS info for you all, sadly I have none to offer.

"Dear JS,

Just wondering, on what day am I going to be able to reach out to a new batch of admitted students regarding ASW and orientation? You're the best!

Love,
NC"

Nailed it.

I thought -- given how the number of 170+ test-takers were down this year -- high LSAT score may have more value than last year but I guess not.

Perhaps the number of 170+ is plenty enough that 170+ no longer really guarantees anything.

UVA getting in on the action today too.

I wrote this on Columbia's thread but it may explain our current JS radio silence, too. Baseless speculation: Ad Comms are waiting for Feb LSAT Retaker scores to serve as a hail mary for medians. Possible? Probable? Idk.


I think it's a possibility, but are there really that many applicants who retake Feb (especially without notifying schools of a retake in advance)? I can't imagine they'd wait on a handful of applicants...

Just bouncing off a post you made in the MS9 thread a few days ago, I think you hit the nail on the head. Numbers really don't guarantee anything, despite what my LSN may indicate. It seems that, almost every year, YLS lets in a sub 160. HLS has rejected 180s in the past. Maybe there's some YP in the lower t-14, but I think a lot of what we attribute to YP boils down to whether the ad coms think an individual would make a solid contribution to the overall class that they're building. Or, maybe it is all numbers based, and CLS decided that they're going to Hammy and Butler their way into T3 status this year. I honestly don't know. If I ever profess to know, please burn me as a witch.

HOW DID WE MISS THIS!!!! A possible HLS Ding? Blah Blah CLickbait

http://abovethelaw.com/2017/02/tiffany- ... aw-school/

Tiffany Trump visited NYU Law today. She sat in on Professor Hulsebosch’s property class


Looks like either she didn't get a JS1/JS2 or she couldn't handle the waiting game. Don't speculate on any other reasons, because there can't possibly be any.

God, ATL writers universally rub me the wrong way.


+1 and it seems like every article can be written with half the amount of words they actually used.

I'm sure if we maintain the quality of posts itt, ATL will write a piece on us.
