chances to get in Harvard


JJM5
Hey there!

I just wanted to find out if I have chances to get into Harvard law School.

My Background:
1 master's degree in law
2 doctorates (1 in general law, 1 in business and economic law)
30 years old
I am working since 5 years in a law firm; since 2016 I am admitted to the bar of my home country
author of numerous specialist articles and various publications on corporate law (about 15 publications, 2 books with each of more than 500 pages)
lecture activities
TOEFL: test in June

Do you think I have any realistic chances to get in Harvard?

Many thanks and kind regards
JJ

There is no formula. It is impossible to know. I know cases of a 35 year old professor with masters degree and 10 years of experience being rejected and 25 year olds with almost no experience being admitted...

Hi JJ,

Generally speaking for an LL. M. program, I think having some work experience is significantly important, so your age may not be a disadvantage. I think you should give a shot. Getting rejected by Harvard shouldn't be a big deal :)

Good luck!
