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.


I went complete in March, also have unique work experience, but have sub 25 lsat numbers. Given that only rejections have been handed out lately, I am worried.. But no sense in worrying now. We'll just have to wait .. And it'll most probably be this upcoming week that we'll hear. I don't expect any decisions to be pending still in May. Good luck to all those left standing. We're going to need it :)

Who is still left standing besides leftofthedial and weee? When did you go complete? I think the rest of us will get decisions today and rest of this week.

Still here. The trenches are lonely and there is no hope for escape. Maybe I can surrender...

Yes, everything but interviews and acceptances are email.

Yes. I applied late (like chi16, UR since 2/24), and am getting late notice as a result. I expected as much.

Still kicking. Got my e-mail 2/17, status checker says UR 2/9... I just want it (my likely rejection) to be over, frankly.

Still hanging in there with you guys, late applicant though. Was there even a slaughter today? This thread was pretty quiet...

I am a late applicant too. Submitted at deadline. Looks like from LSN only a couple of people were accepted that submitted in Jan. Odds are against us folks. Everything recently on LSN has been a rejection. Even a waitlist at this point would be miraculous. Good luck to all!

Any movement on Monday? I just can't believe you guys would still be in limbo with deposit dates right around the corner.

Given that the "numbers" left aren't that impressive, I think what's left for most of may be rejections... Unless, Harvard forgives my sub25 lsat bc of my unique work experience and 4.0 gpa.

Anyway, no news is still good news at this point, so lets just stay positive!

By and large, there are no 'perfect' profiles left, either still pending or on the WL. Seems to be predominantly splitters with some medians thrown in, all buoyed by strong softs. At this point, I think numbers kind of take a backseat and it's a question of what your broader application brings to Cambridge that the others don't. My ill-informed $.02 fwiw!

I think it's going to be almost wholesale rejection. Hate to be negative, but I just think that's a much more reasonable expectation at this point.

I think you could make an argument either way for how these last minute decisions break. Certainly rejection seems likely, but they've held onto the files for this long without dinging them yet, clearly there's something in them that has kept them in the game. I would speculate mostly dings with a handful of WLs and maybe even a borderline Acceptance or two, just to mix things up.

I mean, I think most of us are simply late applicants, right? Holding on to the files this long doesn't seem unusual to me. There are almost certainly more JR2s out there, but I think those are coming in individually rather than in batches at this point, and I think there's also a big ol' mound of files with "AXE" written on the top of it.

:( yea most of us late applicants.. They are just getting to us now is my theory. I applied at the deadline, and took feb last for first time so it doesn't get later than that :) Pray, pray, pray!
