HLS Interview

Post by Prop_DP_JM » Fri Jun 19, 2020 4:10 pm

Hi all,

Hoping someone can shed some light on when HLS usually releases decisions on who gets an interview, and what types of questions are typically asked. Any information would be much appreciated!

Interview emails should be coming out next week, probably around Wednesday~ if it’s similar to last year.

Has anyone gotten the interview request yet? They said some were going out today, and I want to know if I didn't get one. Good luck!

"Thank you for your interest in joining Harvard Law School as a transfer student. We are currently reviewing transfer applications, and anticipate sending phone interview invitations to selected candidates today and again later this week.

As you consider your options for this fall, we wanted to make sure that you saw Harvard Law School's recent announcement that all campus programming will occur online in Fall Term 2020. We encourage you to review the HLS Fall Term 2020 FAQs for information regarding Harvard Law School's policies and plans for the upcoming semester. Please note that transfer students who are offered admission to HLS will not have the option to defer enrollment to a future year.

We understand that an online learning environment may not be optimal for all students. If you decide to withdraw your application to HLS, please email transferadmissions@law.harvard.edu.

Sincerely,
J.D. Admissions"

nothing yet - i haven't seen anyone say they did yet, but tentatively creeped on the 2019 thread and it looks like their interview requests went out at like 4pmEST/1pmPST so maybe it'll be later on?

To people who received an interview invite today, would you mind sharing your stats? And when did you submit your app? Thank you so much!

Good luck to those interviewing! When are the interviews scheduled?

Also, can anyone tell how many interview slots there were?

From last year's thread, it seems there was only one round of interview invites. However, their email today says they would be sending out invites again later this week. Fingers crossed!

Good luck to everyone! Y'all are going to do great. And for those of you who didn't get an interview, I believe there was two rounds of interview requests last year but I'm not certain. I transferred to Harvard so I'm happy to answer any questions people might have.

If you do not get an interview until later this week are you less likely to be admitted than this first group who received the request for interview today?

Also, do all admitted transfer students get an interview?

Of course!

3.96 and ~1% at t50. Went complete around 6/3 I believe.

So it looks like everyone who got an interview had their profile go complete before 6/15???
