I sent them an email updating them and then also forwarded LSAC my new transcript, which they'll disseminate to every school you applied to.


ok cool. Thanks

Omg the meltdowns on this thread today, lol.

You guys! Gentle reminder: you’re all amazing, whether or not you get into Harvard. Your self worth is NOT tied to law school acceptance!

I was a first wave (first day!) JS1 who didn’t get in during the December JS2 wave. And after a little crisis, I realized: my life was awesome before I applied to HLS, and it won’t be any less awesome even if I don’t get in.

Breathe!! :D

I wouldn’t be surprised if they did a URM wave of JS1’s soon, now that they have a picture of what the applicant looks like

like a poster earlier said, everyone here is an accomplished person with legit points of view. without it you wouldn't be here. everyone needs to calm down a bit and not let emotions get the best of us. those who are waiting for their js1s can be a bit stressed waiting for their chance to interview having spent a good deal of effort in this black box process whereas those who've received it may also be in twitches about next steps. let's not let it blind us to the fact that many truly exceptional and successful people never got a chance to apply let alone make it to this school and vice versa. also if it helps, as far as results are concerned it's still early in the cycle.

I like the way you think. Hoping admissions agrees. U Chicago recently requested an interview for me and I was in shock. I love being in shock.

How so? Mike MS9's latest blog post seems pretty positive for concerned applicants to top schools.
