dude, almost nothing P North says is correct. Don't worry about it.


If you can categorically point out just one thing that I have said (to date) that was even remotely incorrect, then I will concede. Just one.

Every time I post something, people are quick to call me a troll/flame without so much as to doing any due diligence of their own. Yet, only if I could count as to how many times people have come on here to say: "P North was right!"

I get my information from the horse's mouth: ie. by calling up the HLS admissions office. And I encourage others to do likewise. People here seem to rely way too much on hearsay, conjecture and the inane garbage that's posted on joke sites like LSN. Funny how people think LSN consensus is the ultimate authority, data/figures that's anything but credible or valid.

I just wish people here wouldn't mislead the non-trads like me who're still in the loop. I also hope genuine gunners still in the running wouldn't get dissuaded by the drivel they read on TLS.

LOL - I've yet to figure out how much of what he says to take seriously or not. But seriously - everyday without a ding means the dream stays alive. And I will be elated if it works out to a WL and a call in August.

lol, I would post tons of stuff that you got wrong, but oh wait you asked for all of it to be deleted... I wonder why?

Seriously PN, its funny how ur claiming you don't want to be misled when you've spent months posting authoritative and misleading information in these threads.

rejection email at 1145, EST.

application acknowledgment: 12/08
application complete: 1/14
held: 3/15

after getting the hold email, submitted a LOCI and two extra LORs -- the latter processed 4/05 and 4/16.

both LSAT and GPA below median. rejection certainly not a surprise.

i don't think we're all getting rejected! hang in there y'all!

They are working on 3/15 holds and I am a 1/15 hold, so I don't know what to think.

Best advice is to not think about it at all. Easier said than done, I know.

odiero, sorry about the rejection.

Thanks for the condolences ;)

I'm glad it came now rather than later. Now I can focus on trying to get out of CLS's reserve group.

I'll probably end up at Emory or NU. It's really kind of silly that I lasted this long at HLS anyway -- waitlisted at CLS, Penn and even Georgetown. Also waiting on NYU.

Best of luck to you all, and thanks for the fun times!

was anyone else (like me) waitlisted without ever having a phone interview? it feels like they never really gave me a chance.

yeah, but I look at it as me getting an outcome I never even deserved, since my GPA is so low. Maybe I'd feel differently if both my numbers were high.

A lot of people were, yeah. I was waitlisted with what most people assumed were at least auto-JR1 numbers. I still have hope, but am also excited about my other option.

The last outright acceptance on LSN was 4/6/10. I highly doubt that they have space for any outright acceptances left. I only counted a couple of outright acceptances handed out in April according to LSN

Yeah, those of us who haven't heard yet are probably somewhere in between a WL and a ding, depending on the mood of the AdComm at any particular moment.
