No interview, no nothing. For context, I have a 180 LSAT and a 4.03 LSAC GPA. But I have average or below average softs (straight out of undergrad, very little work experience). Should I assume from the radio silence that I've been rejected or waitlisted? Or is there still time before I need to worry?As has been said previously but merits repeating, it is safe to assume that you have been waitlisted or rejected when you receive an email from Harvard Law School indicating that you have been waitlisted or rejected.
In the meantime, do your best to avoid the contagious neuroticism of this forum, breathe, and relax.
Quoting the previous reply to your same exact question on the Harvard thread. Chillax, dude.
I'm just honestly really confused as to why I'm not hearing anything. Isn't it all based on when you apply? Or is there any other reasons besides that or being waitlisted that I person's application could take longer under review? I'm just genuinely confused, but I'm no expert on the admissions process so I'm trying to see if anyone else has an explanation.
The admissions officers aren't robots, and there are probably a lot of different people looking at your file. Based on what each person deems valuable and how long they take to review, what their work habits are like, what the applicant pool already looks like, AND what scholly money the school has left / can offer you, there's a huge variance on how soon you v. others may hear back. You have great numbers even for this cycle, and unless you wrote something extremely controversial in your app they're probably just debating scholly details. Chilllll
