It is now! I honestly believed that my application would be laughed out of the admissions office, so this is completely unreal. I'm really excited to learn more about the school now that I have the opportunity to go.

Thanks for the congratulations Kretzy & everyone else.

For those requesting stats, they're the following: AA female, 168/3.4 from HYP, master's degree from another Ivy, and I'll have a year of WE under my belt by the fall.

TBH I'm really not surprised. If your GPA was higher I would have pegged you for close to auto-admit.

Congrats again. I am profoundly jealous. If I got into SLS my cycle would basically be over as I would withdraw everywhere except Berk.

+1. They have been small rounds, though.
But none for me. To hell with the bastard who said I would definitely be in at SLS. Hope you die in a fire.

Crack, did you decide to write a LOCI and/or get additional LORs for Harvard?

Yeah, after all my tough talk about giving HLS the cold shoulder, I'm going to send them one additional LOR (from my employer; my original three LORs are all from professors) and a LOCI.

What're you gonna do?

I sent them an updated transcript (with a slightly improved GPA) and a LOCI (still in the mail, I suspect). I'm waiting on two recommenders (professors) to send LORs to LSAC, and then I'll shoot them over to Harvard.

What do you think my chances are?
Be honest I can take it



I think citydweller has very similar stats to you and is also Black (but female). Look at her profile.

Cool. Yeah since I'm not in school and haven't changed jobs or anything in the past 4 months, an additional LOR and a LOCI is about all I can offer them by way of updates to my file at this point. I'll talk in my LOCI about what I've done at work recently, but I don't think I'll mention other schools (Stanford).

So how does it work? Do I send the signed LOCI directly to Harvard's admissions office with my LSAC number on it and the LOR the same way I did LORs in September (via LSAC)?

Congrats jsoell! Noticed you've been out of school a while... curious if you'd be willing to share what have you been up to since college (WE? Grad school?)?

I am actually going to send an update I think. My GPA raised a little this semester, one publication, honors graduation, extra letter of rec and a note telling them they are far and away my top choice. Here's to hoping.
