Well the Harvard application for 2014 is open, so guys I think it is time to open a separate topic. Harvard is my personal first choice (ok ok I am shure I am not the only one :P ) and I would like to hear from other people that will apply. Maybe we can help each other and talk with our potential future colleagues . So , who is applying ? Where are you from? Ah and feel free to ask me anything about the process. I have been preparing for a while now and maybe I can help.


Hi everybody

I just discover this website because I'm totally desperate waiting for Harvard's decisions.

Im from Latin America, I was a top student in my Law School and I have a Master in Law. In both cases I received merit scholarships. But in my graduate degree my rank is not the first one I have worked in the Government for issues related with Human Rights, I also worked in the Constitutional Court of my country and I had the opportunity to make a Professional visit for three months at the Inter american Court of Human Rights. I have several national and international publications and I think I have good letters of recommendation, not from former student of Harvard because that is not common in my country but they are relevant Professor and authorities in my country. My only weakness is that I had 95 in the TOEFL. Do you think I have a chance?

In addition, according former students, I definitely I believe that decisions are gonna be released this Monday 17.

Good Look to every one.

Somebody else from Latin America?

WOW! that is very impressive! I salute you for achieving all of that! you are not an ordinary applicant and from what I know Harvard look at your application as a whole so if you did not get an outstanding score in the toefl exam, you can make it up by the other things that you have done and you personal statement.

I am from Saudi Arabia. I have a bachelor's degree in Law with honors. I ranked third in my graduation class. I am a women rights activist. I was an intern in a non-profit organization in the US last summer and that's what I did after I graduated in a nutshell.

Than you for your message I really appreciate your words. I think as women we have some advantage. I also interested in issues related with women and discrimination, and think that it is really interesting for them, so you have a good point, specially if your letters and personal statement are related with that.

Thank you again and good look.

Harvard official policy on TOEFL: 100 overall, 25 minimum each section.

14. Will my application be reviewed if my TOEFL score does not meet the required minimum?
Yes, your application will still be reviewed. However, you will be at a significant disadvantage compared to the other applicants whose TOEFL scores do meet Harvard Law Schools required minimum.

Some schools admit you even with low score, some schools require mandatory English course before LL.M, some want you to retake TOEFL test to get required score. So I guess it depends on your score in each subsection and on the quality of your application overall.

Anyway, best of luck to you all, I believe they can make an exception for outstanding candidates:)

I received an admission offer from a prominent university TOEFL requirements of which are not met by me. So everything is possible as long as you do not have a very low score or the applicant pool consists of a lot of applicants with very high scores.

Hi everyone. Am from Uganda, East Africa. I applied for LLM in Harvard. My Country recently passed a law against homosexuality and many countries, including USA have criticised us, cut aid, etc. Would this affect my chances of admission to harvard??

Absolutely not, I do not see any correlation (unless you are one of the congressmen that passed the bill). Certainly, the folks at Harvard would have much interest in educating qualified Ugandans, and if you are a gay Ugandan, this would probably improve your chances.

Somebody else from Latin America?


I am also from Latin America. Graduated from one of the top 10 universities in our subcontinent (meritorious thesis, dean commendation letter) and I hold an LLM from the best
german university. I have professional experience in the private and public sector, I litigated in several high profile cases for political rights before the Constitutional Court of my country. I worked in Austria, and represented my employer at last year's meeting of UNCITRAL in Vienna, I will be interning next month at the International Labor Organization in Geneva and I have publications in english and spanish.

My TOEFL score is 112, but the speaking part was only 24, this is a point below the required 25, I am very much afraid that this will diminish my chances too.

Very impressive... I guess you have good chances also with a score of 24 in the speaking part. But when I read your answer I started wondering which university you qualify as the "best German university" (its not of any importance, I am just curious)

hey! I graduated from the LMU as well. I did also an LLM. Do you think that they will give a lot of weight to our LLM grades?

I don't think so, I heard that normally the grades of our first law degree are more relevant. But I still hope that your LLM grades are not obscenely higher than mine hehe ;).
