I'm with you on this one, hoping for a waitlist. Only time will tell.

Got the same email and I am in the same boat under review 9/29. Is there any consnsus if this is any better/worse than a waitlist. It feels like a waitlist that's for sure.

I'm having a difficult time finding info on Harvard holds from previous years. Is it appropriate to send a LOCI now or should I wait until I get a WL notification (assuming I even get one)?

I pretty much have nothing to say in my LOCI except "I will attend if you let me".

Really early. The first day they let me in fact, 9/15.

Saw this in the JR1 but no JR2 thread:

psychomohel wrote:Got an email telling me I'm being held today. Guess that is like waitlist+.

So I guess some JR1s but no JR2s are getting holds. I'm confused.

yikes, that is not what i want to hear. le sigh

only people who submitted really early are gonna hear about holds today, though, bc they still have time with the rest of us. i guess if you don't hear about a hold today, cb, that is probably a good sign.

I thought the JR2 was the "you're in!" call, not another email? So it would make sense for them not to get a hold?

Looking on LSAC, it seems you can send additional LORs even after applications are submitted:

LSAC wrote: The law school report will be updated and sent each time LSAC receives a letter of recommendation.


Not sure if Harvard would prefer it done this way. I would assume so, but check to make sure?

He means people with a JR1 in the "JR1 but no JR2" thread - so some people who have a JR1 are getting held.

Huh? Yes, the JR2 is the admittance phone call. I'm sorry I don't understand what you're saying. My post was just showing that someone who had a JR1 (but had yet to get a JR2) got one of the "hold" emails today.

I gotcha now. I thought you meant some JR1s (were getting holds) but no JR2s (were) are getting holds.

Got it. Sorry for the confusion. Yeah he was just the first person we know of to get a JR1 and a hold email. Everyone else we know about who got a hold email did not get a JR1.

I got held today as well. Complete 9.29.

I don't think I'm going to go through the trouble of updating my file though.

Now that I'm in Chicago I probably won't be updating mine either.
