not received the test e-mail...
from post above, maybe only the admitted applicants would receive the e-mail ?

i still hope HLS can send rejections via e-mail as well, the endless waiting is killing me!

anyone else received this email?


I guess everybody who applied.


not yet here...
nor even an email notifying deferment of decision many people posted to have received last week...
last communication I got was the Feb. 22 email...
I think I had better not fretting over the result for these may be bad omen of rejection~~~

I got the mail. But, in my opinion we shouldnt read too much into it. It might come out in batches for all u know.

The only email I have received from HLS is the confirmation of the receipt of my llm application mid december. I hope it's just bad management and nothing else!

I really wonder what's the reason for this "test mail". I have an idea, though. Harvard has been forced to postpone its decision making, perhaps due to amount of applications. They have also stated that acceptances will not be made via e-mail. They are also aware, however, that other schools are pressing their applicants to decide (jus got an email from Michigan yesterday, and Yale requests decisions to be made by 10th of April). The Graduate Commitee fears that some candidates will decline their offer, because they have had to accept some other offer. That wouldn't look too good - people turning down mighty Harvard for Georgetown or Penn etc. So Harvard has to act promptly. They have to announce their decisions by e-mail. But they want to make sure that they have right addresses. And then there is a conspiracy to overtake Yale...(I'm not too busy at work today, as you can see). What do you make of this theory?

I think that the conspiracy has infiltrated this discussion board and that, now that you have discover the frigthening truth, they are after you.

Please be careful and trust no one.

Hmm... The theory is path-breaking tmalmine... However, I hope it is untrue ...for the sake of Harvard's own reputation.

Why do I feel that everybody is sick of the whole application's stuff? It's so funny: deadlines, offers, rejections, waitings and ...LL.M. Guide! Ohhhhh!

I have no idea about the "sense" of this e-mail, but the fact is that all of you guys who have received it are also admitted at least one of the other two "top three" schools (yale and/or stanford)... Could it be possible that they are testing the e-mail address of the students that they have decided to admit so far? Or is it too optimistic? It has no sense that they test some e-mails on an arbitrary basis... But I don't know which could be the criteria...

Come on, guys.. Let's stop speculating. I am not fond of any sort of conspirancy and do not relay on the receipt of this test email which I actually received.
My point is that HLS will absolutely fail it's admissin process this year should they postpone the anouncement for even a single day. I hope they really understand that we could receive offers from other top schools (NYU in my case) and rejection on the basis the time pressure only will not sound good for them. So we have the date now and IMHO it's just a question of time to get the answer.

But what is truly challenging is the CLS silence...

Now, that's a theory that flies away from the data!

I never applied to Stanford and wasn't admitted to Yale. Only NYU and Chicago. Harvard is now my top choice. However, I received this amazing e-mail...

A question to you guys: I now that I probably lack the necessary knowledge to grasp the deep implications of a piece of writting as brilliant as that e-mail, but why the hell did they tell us not to answer if they were trying to confirm their e-mail list? Suppose someone receives the e-mail but wasn't suppose to? He/she would not, of course, answer, because he/she was told not do do so in the e-mail itself! And here is how a brillian strategy falls apart: I belive they sould refine their methods back at Harvard...

Wow, I sound like Sherlock Holmes, don't I?

You are right igorek... But it is difficult keep on calm and do not speculate... All of we have time pressure from other schools (me myself have been granted scholarschips at Penn and NYU...) and we need to know about the decissions of our favourite ones... This strange e-mail does not help to reduce the anxiety... I know four applicants from my country and the other three have not received the e-mail...
In any case, I insist: you are right it has no sense to speculate. But my point is that it is difficult not doing so...

let's just see after 2 hours or so if HLS keeps sending test email, or begins sending out decisions, from the morning of Friday, Boston time...
since March 24, Friday is the last day mentioned in the Feb 22 email (and I didnt hear any further from them), I guess they will take whatever action on Friday...and at least they will tell me whether I was rejected or not over the phone should I give them a call, says the Feb 22 email...

anyway, cannot but have an impression that this application process got a bit out of shape...good luck to all...

I didn't receive this "test e-mail". Bad news? Probably, since it would be ridiculous to send a test e-mail to someone they are going to reject. At the same time, it doesnt make sense to send a test e-mail and not ask for confirmation of receipt. What are they testing anyway???? Lets see.

Does anyone think they will start notifying admissions today via e-mail?

Even the schools that state they do not send decisions via e-mail end up doing it...

Anyway, HLS has eaten its own words for so many times (inlcuding form of decision notification, notification deadline, no early decision, etc.)....It's really unbelievable that it is a top law school...SLS and YLS are much better compared against HLS. I believe it is just a joke.
