Hi Carlotta.

I am re-applying this year. Focusing more on my personal statements. I plan to apply in November. How about you?

Also, does anybody know which documents does Harvard retain for re-applicants. I am aware they retain transcripts and TOEFL scores, but was wondering about personal statements etc.

Yes.

Based on my understanding they do not re-evaluate the personal statement from the previews year of application. However I wanted to ask if someone here knew more about such details, before I directly ask Harvard.

I don't want to sound rude, but (i) if something is available on the law school's website, then there is no point in asking it on this forum and (ii) if it's not, then always contact the law school first, because this forum is not an official source and there is a lot of misleading information here. Apologies again, but if you seriously want to be a Harvard law student, then you should be able to figure this out on your own.

I don’t want to sound rude either but (i) I am aware this is not an official website, (ii) I am also aware that contacting them first it’s the best idea and (iii) this is a ‘discussion page’ so any topic in discussing I believe would be welcomed, considering also that the information I asked for its not explicitly stated in the website. Apologies also from me side, but if you are trying to help or give advice in this forum, you should consider different approaches. Anyway, thank you.

Does anyone think that there is any advantage to applying early? Have found conflicting advice online.

Also out of curiosity if you have applied do you just have an LLB/JD/ other equivalent? Or have you already undertaken some form of postgraduate study e.g. LLM/Mphil etc.

I applied approximately 3 weeks before the deadline, had only a JD and got accepted.

There is ALWAYS an advantage in applying early if your application is complete and ready. Law schools will or may not admit it but in the competitive world of LLM-candidate snatching it makes sense for a law school to fill up slots against qualified candidates as early as possible.

@"Harvey", I believe JHL7 is seeking for advice to manage anxiety, not to increase it. :)

@JHL7, I've been focusing on my hobbies on my free time. Also, I've been chatting a lot with fellow brazilian applicants just to blow off steam. I think it's crucial that you keep calm and know that you did the best you could and that right now there's nothing you can do to influence the decision. I have written down a list of steps towards an LL.M and I try not to "skip" steps so I don't go crazy (gathering documents, applying, waiting, waiting for scholarships, applying for scholarships granted by other entities, discussing the leave with your employee, visa, loans, housing, etc). :)
I know some days it is just impossible not to obsess with the application process, but for our sanity's sake it is worth the effort to keep our minds busy!

If you have the time and resources, go on a holiday, or focus on your hobbies like @annasun is :) Sadly, I can't do either of those; I'm in my final year of law school and study pressure is pretty intense.

Don't listen to " the other Harvey" he does not know that we here are all rich :P

I believe the best thing to do now is to try occupying ourselves with our hobbies and other things that are not related to Harvard. I am personally making sure that I will not spend the next 3 months thinking and analyzing what the outcome of the application will be.

" the other Harvey" is the real Harvey Specter. You are just an epigone, Louis, craving for my appreciation since season 1.

Seriously; if your biggest problem is whether Harvard will accept you, then you are clearly not Harvard material. Sorry. I recommend channeling this anxiety into helping the less fortunate members of your community, who do not even have the chance to apply to Harvard.

Are you serious? Just STOP trying to tell people they are or are not Harvard material just because they are anxious or ask questions you don't consider pertinent. You do not know what each person is going through and you don't know what this admission would represent to them, so just stop!

You say you are in Harvard right now, so aren't you busy?? I mean, why waste your precious time on LLM Guide if you're not even HELPING nor SUPPORTING applicants. Seriously, re-read your answers on this thread. It seems you're just trying to feel good about yourself at other people's expense. Absolutely sad!

Here is how I help the LLM Guide community:
- I warned the readers of this thread that they should first turn to, and read more carefully, the official sources; and
- I pointed out not to spam this thread with comments about anxiety.

Sorry if this hurt your feelings.

One more thing: if anyone wants to ask me questions about the application or the program, which he or she cannot find online, I am more than happy to answer them to the best of my knowledge with the above caveats.
