+1 to this. Harvard is the last school I have to hear from, and I want this cycle to be over one way or another. I want my life back :?

I just kind of want to get my first ding outta the way. Harvard would be an ideal candidate. I don't know why they wait so long to do it. :mrgreen:

Writing the main points of my LOCI right now, should I include that at the midway point of the semester my lowest grade of six three hour classes is a 99? Not sure if it is worth mentioning, but it would appear I will have another 4.0 semester. Would it even matter?

that's a weird way of putting it, but I can't imagine it would hurt to say, "based on current grades and midterms, I anticipate earning a 4.0 this semester, bringing my GPA up to X" if you are on the low side for their GPA.

I was just putting it on a bullet list right now, not yet in form for the letter. Thanks for the advice, I will put it in my letter later on.

Yeah, the wait for Harvard must be killing you given that [strike]you haven't gotten into either Ya[/strike]... wait, you've gotten into Yale & Stanford. :|

HOWEVER, if you look back at last year's cycle, there was a large gap in acceptances between February 11 and March 3, and again between March 6 and 19. Then a whole slew of rejections (and a few acceptances) throughout the end of March.

So, assuming that the best course of action for a new guy like JR is to follow his predecessors, maybe the machine gun fun will begin in 3 weeks. :P


Hopefully so. I'm sure I'm with you all on this - it is becoming such a pain to keep waiting for any news from HLS. I am contemplating even sending another letter of interest in because I figure I can update them - mainly because its been so long since my first! :x

Maybe this is a trick which the adcomm mercifully uses to make any rejections feel better: "well at least this damn wait is finally over! I'm happy!" :twisted:

Seeing your cycle mentioned, I find it funny HLS is the last you are hearing from.

I'd expect anyone who gets into YLS and SLS to be admitted to HLS first!

Y and S are more soft focused.

His numbers are below HLS's GPA median and roughly at the LSAT median, not to mention this cycle's weirdness.

What is surprising is (as far as I can tell) he hasn't gotten a JR1... *adds another person to the hope chain*

I'm also impatiently awaiting my (hopefully) upcoming JR1...I got held and then retook in Feb., and got a score that was either Yale or Harvard's 75th ( :wink: ), so I'm thinking I should be good for a JR1...but it is late in the cycle...does the fact that it's March significantly hurt my chances?

P.S. My gpa is a high 3.8X

The Yale thread has devolved into a thread of random conversations.

Yes, I know that I've been blessed this cycle. I also know that my cycle is essentially over. I just want closure from Harvard, a school that I applied to in mid September. I'm pretty sure I'm headed for the WL, but I'd like to know what's happening.

I'm playing the world's smallest violin for you my brother.

I think we should all start a thread called: "Closure for TLS' finest: a quest for perfection"

You can mod the thread
