Sorry for the ding, mon frère. If it's any consolation, a.) at least your cycle is now a lot more simplified than many of us who dodged the ding only to find ourselves slowly digested to death in Sarlacc (i.e., the Waitlist), and b.) your comment about poking the bear made me laugh. With you, not at you, I promise. Not to mention, c.) your football team's been a lot better than mine the past 3 years so nothing to be bummed about!


Haha thanks, but the good thing about being in Sarlacc is you know that someone will make it out (Boba Fett). Good luck to all still waiting to hear and to those on the waitlist!


I appreciate the sentiment, but didn't Boba not get out ever? If you've seen the second Robot Chicken Star Wars segment, they definitely play off that belief. Check Wiki to confirm/deny, got distracted by this instead: --LinkRemoved--

Dear Jer,

so sorry about the rejection. Do you mind sharing when you went complete/under review.

My decision should be coming any day too...

I went complete in March. I have sub 25th percentile LSAT, and very high 75th percentile GPA. I am still waiting. It looks like only waitlists and rejections recently.. not looking promising. I am a combined degree applicant, and heard from one program, but still waiting on HLS and praying daily :).

Hardly the worst idea. After dragging my feet for far too many months, I bit the bullet and went to confession last night. Figure it can't hurt to be right with the man upstairs when JR's contemplating WL decisions.

Was struck by the rejection axe earlier today. Never thought a rejection could cause so little pain.

Harvard is a wonderful school, though. Congrats to all who were accepted, and good luck to all who are matriculating.

IIRC you are going to Stanford right? Congrats on that. :) Turning down Yale must have been fun for you.

Yup, I'm excited to betray my alma mater. Turning down NHCC was incredibly difficult, though.

I would say "sorry, BioE," but it doesn't sound like you need my sympathies :P

Funny how these admissions games work--glad we're gonna end up where we want to be. :)

My application went complete in early January and I have not heard anything yet. I haven't been held or waitlisted; is this a good situation or should I be expecting a rejection any day now? I do not have traditional Harvard gpa/lsat numbers, but I am a CPA, MBA, and have three years work experience with a Fortune 500 company. Appreciate any thoughts. Thanks.

Rejected yesterday. 25th LSAT/75th GPA with some interesting work and graduate school experience, so makes me wish I could have gotten my apps in before late Jan.

Ahaha, yes I am a guy. I play around with my tar from time to time. Decided to pick a more sinister character.

Core I thought you were a girl too. And I thought that the new 'tar was a self-tar.

Who is in your tar now?? It looks like the girl from Royal Pains to me, who is not very sinister so I'm guessing I have it wrong...

Lol! If I'm wrong in assuming your tar is a self-tar, we're both out of touch.

Half tuition at Penn or sticker at NYU, plus CLS and SLS waitlists. I have some significant personal reasons for wanting to stay in the Boston area though, so not ruling out the idea of retaking and reapplying early next cycle. Not sure that it would do much good though, since I already have 2 scores.

That might work.. my friend had 2 scores around the 170 area, really wanted HLS, and rocked his 3rd LSAT. He was then accepted in the first round of Thanksgiving acceptances.
