Hello!

Congratulations!

For those who got admitted, can you please kindly share with us your background and credentials, i.e., nationality, class rank, work experience, and publications.

And, if you can share with us some tips on how to write the personal statement, that would be great!

Thank you very much!

Hey guys,

When I was rejected from Cambridge a few days ago, I just wanted the earth to open up and swallow me!

Now I got into Harvard!

Life takes you by surprise some times.....

Congratulations to all those accepted and good luck to people on the wait list. Looking forward to meeting you at Harvard!

Hi, got a rejection as well. My letter says something to the effect of them being impressed with my credentials and suggesting that I work another 2 years and consider reapplying.

I was wondering if this is something they say ordinarily?

I had no such indication under my rejection letter.

Rejected. Feel really ordinary.

Have been working towards admission since I visited the law school about 5 years ago. Since then I've done everything I could possibly do to bring me into contention. Not sure what else I could do now to improve my chances.

It's a magical place. Congratulations to all those who made it


Big fat rejection for me too!
I totally get you, 6 years ago when I first went to Harvard for summer school, I was enchanted by the atmosphere and it became my dream school. I was so determined to get in, I did everything I could - grades, extracurricular activities, internships, work experience, toefl etc. I thought getting into Harvard would also establish that I was smart and a part of this "club". It is like a slap across the face to learn that I am merely mediocre.

Under no circumstances should one base one's value on the universities one gets into. Not only is this unjustifiable per se, admission decisions are often random, dependent on luck, on who else is applying, on how much diversity they want in their classes, how much familiarity they have with certain courses the candidate has taken and how they evaluate them, et cetera, et cetera. These are factors outside of anybody's control.

Because of all these factors, sometimes you get into one university but not the other (plenty of examples in this thread). Sometimes you get into none. Oh well.

Hello everyone!

Does anyone know something about waitlist policy and/or stats (how many applicants are usually waitlisted each year, and how many of them are usually offered admission after a second round)?

Thank you in advance (and congrats to all admitted)!

Hey, if I need to revise some of my entries to the financial aid form, who I should I be emailing to? Should we be emailing Catherine Peshkin directly, because the letter is not very clear on who these emails should be directed to. I would really appreciate any input on this please.

Same problem. You can email to the law school and the problem will be settled.

Regarding financial statement changes/expedited aid decision, I would write an email directly to address stated in admission email.

"To speed our processing of financial aid awards, please let us know immediately if you have been awarded any outside scholarships or received additional funding since submitting your financial aid application. In addition, please do not hesitate to contact me directly if you are facing an earlier deadline from another institution and require an expedited financial aid decision."
