I had been waiting for this update email and had even posted in this thread about such potential email, so no heart attacks.

I have a hunch that this year they release on March 12/13. Good luck to everyone of us :)

they seem to be late in sending the update email this year (as opposed to previous years' threads). I feel like they might release results late by 26th 27th March.

I've already received the results from 3 universities. Harvard is the only one pending. Based on previous years, does someone know when they send the admission results? And the financial aid results?

I am little worried. The other universities want me to make a decision on April 1st. If Harvard takes too long, I won't have the time to balance the pros and cons.

Based on the last years‘ threads, we will most certainly get a decision by March 13th or 16th. :)

And we begin the final two weeks of anxiety.

As per previous threads decisions were released on the following days:

2009 - 22nd - Sunday
2010 - 21st - Sunday
2011 - 19th - Saturday
2012 - 18th - Sunday
2013 - 18th - Monday
2014 - 19th - Wednesday
2015 - 17th - Tuesday
2016 - 16th - Wednesday
2017 - 15th - Wednesday
2018 - 15th - Thursday
2019 - 14th - Thursday

I have a feeling that this year, it can be any day between 11th (Wednesday) -16th (Monday).

Would the HLS GPAO give a definite answer, if at all, if someone calls them and asks about the precise (or even tentative, unless it is 'mid-march' or 'end of march', ha ha) dates on which the decisions will be released?

Certainly worth a try I guess - maybe they will give a specific time frame at least? Not sure if former applicants have done this?

If someone called, it would be really useful if that person could ask whether the financial aid decisions will be communicated along with the admission decisions.

You see, most programs expect us to give an answer by April 1st, and if Harvard takes too long, people who rely on financial aid won't be able to wait for Harvard's decision on it.

I think they won’t... materials said they don’t consider financial aid until decisions made and it’s independent process.

Hi, same is my case (April 1 deadline by other school thing). Based on the information given on their website, and on earlier years' threads , the Financial Aid decisions are NOT released ALONG WITH the admissions decisions. That is certain.

What might interest you is that the Financial Aid decisions are mostly made within a week or two from the date of the release of admission decisions, and most certainly within the month of March. We should ask them about this (if they do not mention it to us as soon as the admission decisions are released) once the admission decisions are released.

Good luck to us! :) Harvard!

Got this back from the LLM application form.

All admission decisions for LL.M. applicants will be released in the online application system at the same time, typically in late
March. Once the decisions have been reached, you will be notified promptly and will be able to log in to your Status Page to
check whether you have been admitted, denied, or placed on a waiting list. Applicants on the waiting list likely will not know the
final result of their applications until May and, in some cases, until August. To protect the confidentiality of applications, we do
not release any information on an application decision to anyone other than the applicant.

Please do not call or email the Graduate Program office to inquire about the status of your admission decision. This will only
disrupt our workflow and prevent us from completing our decision-making process as quickly as possible. However, if you are facing a deadline for acceptance from another school that cannot be extended, you may contact the Graduate Program office and we will do our best to give you an indication of your status where available.

Definitely worth a shot contacting the Graduate Program Office if we are facing deadlines clashes with other schools.

Same problem with me. The deadline for the other schools is April 1st. And I will rely on financial aid.

Thank you for your email and for sharing this news with us.



Unfortunately, we are unable to provide you with a definitive answer about your LL.M. application at this time. Harvard Law School has a very rigorous admissions process requiring that each successful application be approved only after a careful evaluation process by a committee of experienced staff and faculty.

Interesting. I remember reading that they do provide indications in case of competing deadlines. Does their response to you mean that they haven’t progressed too far in the application review process at this time?

you can see above that they have requested an additional document from an applicant last week. Isn't this a strong indication that we will be getting decisions around late March?

I agree. I suspect the results this year may be delayed (relative to past years) and our wait may extend up to late March.

I don't think so (definitely hope not). As per previous trends, they still have more than 10 days to release results.
