My interviewer was a recent HLS alum - I'm wondering if they increased the number of people they interview? In the past, weren't all interviews done by JS, Anne, or Tom?

I think it is about the same as previous years (~1200 for ~900 spots). Several years ago the interview used to basically be a formality so depends what you are comparing to.

Check in.
Had me js1 today..wasn't satisfactory. I think I screwed up one important question.
She also told me that: "It is gonna be a fairly long process".... Does this imply that I'm probably dinged? (Or maybe just my paranoia? )

Stats: LSAT=75%, GPA>75%, KJD

With stats like that you'd probably have to murder someone live during your interview in order to be dinged.

Probably not even then.

Checking in. Has anyone who applied in late Oct being accepted or interviewed yet? I applied on the 30th and still no answer. Should I be worried?

Complete 11/18, no JS1 so far

LSAT = 75
GPA < 25

I expect to be waiting quite a while if I get one at all.

Speaking of, how do waitlists work for Harvard? If you get waitlisted, do you still have to go through the JS1/JS2 process before possible acceptance?

I'm in nearly the same boat. I don't think I've seen a single person interviewed with a GPA below the 25th percentile this cycle. I figure, at some point they've got to start admitting some right?

Is that normal?


My status checker has not updated at all past "your application has been marked as completed" throughout the process and I was in the JS1 wave on 12/2.

I'm in nearly the same boat. I don't think I've seen a single person interviewed with a GPA below the 25th percentile this cycle. I figure, at some point they've got to start admitting some right?


Similar here, with higher LSAT and a very early complete. It's not a great feeling to see all the lower LSATs get interviews, but I agree that they seem to be holding off on the lower GPAs for now. I've gotten good results elsewhere so it's a crappy feeling not to see the same interest from HLS, but I'm telling myself it's a waiting game...


Checking in for solidarity. Great results elsewhere in my cycle, especially with CCN, but no JS1 yet. Now I'm guessing if I get one at all, it won't be until February/March.

Same here. Hoping for JS1 love in the new year!

Had my JS1 today with Tom Robinson. Very laid back - he asked four questions, I asked him three. Feel free to PM me with any questions.

Complete 11/28, JS1 second week of December.

Any reverse splitters get JS1's yet? I went complete in mid-November, and while I don't expect a JS1 necessarily, it'd be great to see if anybody else with similar stats has gotten one yet.
