I'm in the same boat. I left it blank. You could probably put N/A if you are not comfortable leaving it blank.

blank also regarding class size? I was thinking of putting "undisclosed/[class size]" but it doesn't seem to fit

I just put N/A for all of those things. We're unranked and class size is around 2k but no idea about the specifics, nor are they listed anywhere on transcript. You'll be fine with N/A, I'm sure :)

Hey guys, I'm a little confused about the personal statement directions: "Put your name and signature on the statement and attach it to this form, or use an electronic attachment and sign the Certification letter."

I'm probably reading into this a bit much, but it seems that if I don't affix my signature to the statement itself, then I need to manually sign and submit the cert. letter (i.e. not electronically). Is standard electronic submission sufficient if I choose the latter? Hope that makes sense...Thanks!

Yes, standard electronic submission is sufficient. At least, I did it that way and received a confirmation from HLS that they got my app and have yet to receive a "your app is in the circular bin because you didn't sign things properly" note.

Yea I agree with the above. I just submitted the electronic certification and got my email from Harvard with login/pass to the site. No problems so far.

Hey, so I called Harvard this morning to ask about the phone interviews. There has been some speculation that, since Toby Stock is gone, Harvard may abandon the practice of evaluative phone interviews.

Harvard admissions: "Yes, we will still be conducting the interviews."

Hope that helps anyone else who was curious!

I put my percentage rank. You can see it in your LSAC report, but I just knew because when I knew to my PBK initiation they said only the top 5% were being allowed in, etc. It was an estimate for me.

Does everyone that has applied / went complete have the "Application Under Review" on their status checker? Just wondered if that was essentially equivalent to "pending," or if Harvard is just really on top of it this year.

You all suck :D Just kidding. They didnt receive my app until 9/25, so you guys are quick.

I wonder if this means that they are actually looking at them and they are going to start interviews early or if it will say that until December?

I might be remembering wrong, but didn't some people get their second phone call on November 25th? Might not have to wait until December (hopefully). :D

Yeah, I was checking LSN data yesterday and the earliest TS2 (what are the new initials now that stock is gone? KB?) was on the twenty fifth. So those of us that got our applications in early could be getting a TS1 as soon as a month and a half from now.

Yale and Stanford both start sending out decisions a little later.
