Harvard Admission Decisions


NAIJADUDE

Hello all,

I am a current LL.M candidate at HLS and I perfectly understand how you guys feel at this time. I have been through it before. We were notified of the admission decisions on March 16, '09. I trust that you guys will get word by Monday 22 or thereabouts.

I just stopped by to have a sense of the tension, suspense, fears and hopes at this point. I remember refreshing ll.m-guide every other minute. Please take it easy with yourselves and - good luck with the decisions!

Trust me - it's an exciting place to be!

anyone here actually been able to ask a uni to 'reconsider' their decision to reject admission before? I mean, I sent them an email, and asked them, to which they replied that I should write a letter. Anyone knows if this works? Or, whether they actually read it?

People, Harvard is a great University. But just because some of you did not get in does not mean that those who got in are any better qualified. Trust me.
The selection process at elite Ivy League schools is absolutely absurd and really, you should not be worried if you are not accepted into Harvard or Yale, or Penn, or Columbia for that matter.
As the great psychologist, Barry Schwartz proposed, all these top schools should just discard their complex admission criterion and hold a lottery for everyone above the rational IQ level. For many of you here, it is those with law degrees or at least an equivalent degree.
This example; although not on the law school, but still Harvard.
In 2008, 27,462 of the most highly qualified future undergrads from around the world applied to Harvard. Of these students, 2,500 of them scored a perfect 800 on the SAT critical reading test and 3,300 had a perfect score on the SAT math exam. More than 3,300 were ranked first in their high school class.
How many did Harvard accept? About 1,600, which is to say they rejected 93 out of every 100 applicants.
People, is it possible to say that one applicant is Harvard material and another isn't, when both have identical--and perfect--academic records? Of course not!!! Harvard is being dishonest. They should just have a lottery.
This is my bet, all of you who applied to Harvard for the LL.M., by virtue of you aspiring to be a Harvard alum, you already have a lot going for you, and Harvard will not make a difference on who you become as a lawyer and what you do and the legacy you leave behind. HLS, YLS, Penn, CLS, Cornell, NYU, Stanford, Michigan...all these mean nothing really. If you are gifted, you are gifted, a piece of paper from any of these institutions will not change a thing.....Nonetheless, vanity is great, so to all the vain applicants: BEST OF LUCK.
