Harvard 2020-2021

They DO work during spring-break, at least as of last year, that's for sure.
And "not this week" can very well point towards next week! Hopeful! :) Harvard!

By "not this week" did they mean after 17th?

After 16th*.

But who knows, they can be quicker! Ha ha, no, they won't, else they wouldn't have spoken as succinctly. They normally don't, as a matter of fact.

My hopes are on Monday (onwards). Harvard!

Me, too. They take awfully long time in the processing business. :(
But I'm sure it won't take beyond next week. Fingers crossed as always! :)

Hi everyone! I was admitted last year, and still remember how stressful the last week was. Hang in there, distract yourselves and hope and pray for the best. This year, I’m waiting to find out if a friend has been admitted to HLS. Came to this site to check if results are out, and read a few comments. Don’t stress out, each one of you have done your best and are outstanding. So just relax. I hope all of us receive good news! Good Luck guys!!


Thank you for your kind words :)

"To 2020 LL.M. applicants:

We imagine some of you may have heard about Harvard’s plan to shift to remote teaching and learning in the next few weeks, and are wondering if that will delay the release of LL.M. admissions decisions.

Please note that we are still on track to release decisions on our original timeline (and that decisions will not be released this week).

Thank you for your patience as we work to complete the application process!

Best wishes,
Graduate Program Admissions"


Whats the point of leaving such a cryptic and contradictory message? On one hand they say we are still on track to release decisions on our original timeline and on the other they mention that decisions will not be released this week!

- What was their “original timeline”? Who knows about it? Was it published?
- Sunday constitutes the last day or first day of the week in US? If its the first then I think decisions will come on Sunday itself, since they are “on track their original timeline”!

I don't know why I have not worried a bit about the admission. Not that I am not interested but maybe because of the fact I feel one must not attend HLS to make the most out of his/her life. I am more worried about the funding than the admission itself. For me, there is really no point to be admitted without the possibility of enrolling owing to the lack of funds.

I think you guys should stop overthinking this process... Decisions will be released eventually, whether next Sunday, Monday or Friday

I acknowledge everyone is anxious (me too), but there is nothing we can do right now but to let HLS finish the review - which, based on previous years discussions, is on schedule.

Their original timeline is "late March", officially. They've written that everywhere.
However, they have been releasing their decisions in mid-March since a decade. And wonder of wonders, it ain't even mid-March yet! :P :D

Relax, Abhishek, I am as agonized as you are in all this admissions business. But then we have no choice than to wait, and the sooner we understand that, the better for us! Good luck :)

And in the U.S., Monday is the first day of the week! :) It can very well happen on Monday, or in the rest of the days of the week.

Hopefully we hear back soon! In case anyone here is admitted, we will likely won’t hear back from scholarships by the time we need to make decisions regarding other schools... does anyone know how this works? Harvard is obviously great, but its kind of hard to make a decision in the dark financially (specially considering the current market situation).

Any tips on how to handle this would be appreciated!

Some schools do grant extension if you request one, in my experience.

Not sure about LLMs but I have a friend studying a MPP in Harvard and she was asked to return home and continue clases remotely.

I think you can. You can pay deposit to one school and finally decide to go to another school. Schools don’t talk to each other? But anyone correct me if I am wrong.

i heard it was not necessarily home country but they said they would help international students somewhere to stay (but not the dorm).
