I think they do not send "application complete" emails, do they? In this case there is nothing detrimental in that you have not heard from them so far.

Right. I think they'll only send the results by late March (at least according to the website). We're in early February.

I'd suggest playing Scrabble for a few weeks.

I haven't received an 'application complete' email either, and have been quite anxious about this... I keep checking back on the application page 'track status' link, but there's been no change on it since November. I guess I'll just have to develop some patience..

my 'track status' has been updated though with acknowledgment of receipt of my transcripts, recos etc..i guess it must have been done for others as well..

@NI i dont think anybody wud receive an application complete email as the email they sent upon submission of application expressly mentions that no such mail wud be sent out..

@lucifer: Thanks! I just went back and checked the 'application submitted' email after reading your post. You're right, they did expressly say they wouldn't send an 'application complete' email. I either didn't read the email carefully enough, or forgot about that line.. :s Well, that's one less thing to worry about.. :)

Has anyone of you already asked HLS for an early decision?

They will not send the "application complete" e-mail. Theoretically, the next e-mail we should receive is the e-mail with the results themselves - or notice of the results themselves.

No, there's no notice of "early decisions" by Harvard and I haven't asked for any as of yet. The other Law School I applied for (NYU) has not released their results for my program yet. So I don't really have any reason for requesting any early decisions on Harvard's part.

I still think Scrabble is a good idea for the weeks to come.

Hey! I was just wondering if you could let me know how the "early decision" works. I have been admitted to other schools and I am not sure if sending an email to expedite my decision at Harvard should be advisable. Is this a normal procedure? Thanks for the info!

@alito690 I cannot tell from experience, since I've never applied for Harvard before. But if you do have deadlines for accepting some or all of the offers you've received thus far, I think it's absolutely normal to let Harvard know that waiting for a decision until late March could result in your losing the opportunity to pursue an LLM degree this year, if the decision is negative. I don't really see Harvard examiners as people that would be upset with your impatience with the admissions' process (specially because it's backed by offers already in place).

So write a concise e-mail, possibly reiterating your admiration for HLS and telling them about the other offers, their deadlines and your need for planning ahead. Don't forget to attach to the e-mail all of the offers you've already received (or the offer you choose to mention in the e-mail).

Hi guys, I do get a comment from HLS when I "tracked my status" and they requires me to provide a transcript of my exchange semester overseas.

@Lostkiki Have you sent them what they required? Mine doesn't say that, probably because I didn't spend a semester overseas (though I wanted to. I couldn't because of work in court).

@alito690: I'm also facing other law schools' deadlines, and I plan to ask HLS for an expedite decision. Did you send your e-mail? Have they answered?

Did anyone else ask HLS for an early decision? I am thinking of it because I have 2 deadlines in February.

Is there anyone already granted an expedite request?

The thread-starter is incorrect. Going by the thread's from last year, the decision will come on the third week of march.

Good luck to all.

@jjye right you are.just glanced though the posts for last year and noticed that unlike other universities, harvard never sent out anything before a certain date. i think i just imagined the proposition out of my own anxiety..
