And does anyone get waitlisted?
I got waitlisted. Anyone else? Am wondering what my chances are now...let the waiting begin again, lol!
And does anyone get waitlisted?
To all who didn't get admitted - take heart - the same happened me last year, and I have received an acceptance this year. Good luck!
Hey there guys!
I'm a current LLM student at HLS and decided to pop in one year after the day I received my own admission letter to check in on you. Congrats to those who got through as well as those who didn't, but who nevertheless got admitted to great schools like Stanford, Columbia, NYU, and Chicago, not to mention Yale.
The HLS class of 2011 has a Facebook group titled "Harvard LL.M. Class of 2011", which is open to prospect students after you accept your offer. If I'm not mistaken, there is also a group for the 2012 class up and running -- your group!
To the newcomers, a quick piece of advice: Forget about all that talk about the LLM being the best year of your life. Life at HLS is pretty challenging, and while it may be rewarding in personal terms, it won't definitely give you the most fun you'll ever get. If you just want to take a year off work and relax, choose somewhere else.
Last, I wonder if there are any Brazilians here who made their way to HLS this year. If so, please do get in touch.
Once again congratulations to all on their achievement to HLS and elsewhere.

pieinthesky123: Thank you for your word of advise. Personnaly, I got rejected last year and once again this year. I have stellar credential. Just to let people know that Harvard is a tough school to get into. All the best to all of you.
P.S.: By the way, I got the message. I wil not reapply a third time.
Congratulations to all those being accepted to Harvard! I got the Yes result as well. But I am still deciding which law school I should attend. I'd like to hear your opinions on Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and even Berkeley and Michigan? Which law school is the first choice for purusing an SJD and eventually an academic career?
Does one need an LLM to get into the SJD program? I am a lawyer who was just offered a tenure track position at a 4th tier ABA accredited law school. I was thinking that an LLM or SJD from a top 5 school would eventually help me move to a teaching position at a higher tier school (assuming I later want to move), because I got my JD from a 3rd tier school (although I graduated in the top 3% of my class). I understand that some professors pursue SJD's while working (which is difficult to do while pursuing an LLM).
Got accepted by Harvard, Columbia & Berkeley... anyone else is facing tomorrow's deadline at Columbia?? I really don't know yet what to chose!
Congratulations from Cambridge, MA, to all those who made it. I was on this board about a year ago so I know how you all feel.
You can safely ignore the comments by my classmate up there - the LL.M. has a very good chance of becoming the best year of your lives.
My Fellow LLMers,
It is with great pleasure that I inform you of my academic fate. I currently hold scholarship offers from Mon Calamari State University, Endor Galactic Academy and Harvard Law School. I wonder if any of you could advise me of which of these esteemed establishments is the most prominent in the field of Interplanetary Arbitration and Ewok-Rights.

Haha! Hey MarcT! j.a. is in a complicated week... It's stress time for some of us with the paper deadlines arriving.
And that's the thing: there are stressful times, there are "best year of my life" moments and there are more placid, average times at the LL.M.
I guess in the end we'll fondly look back even at the stressful times (j.a.'s words!, out of the record, one week prior to the height of the stress) and it may well be that it was really the best year of our lives. Regardless of the "best year" controversy, what is safe to say is that it is a terrific year and that the Class of 2011-2012 will enjoy it a lot!
Welcome to you all, Class of 2011! You'll have a great time!
Doing an LL.M. (at Harvard and elsewhere, from what I hear unanimously from friends elsewhere) is a great experience! Lots of challenges, fun, stress, learning and getting to know things. A good mix!
Congratulations to all who are admitte and I have a very humble request...
I got rejected for the second time...
I am unable to make out the reason of my rejection...and I have no clue what actuallyu Harvard wants...what is the criteria...
The admitted students can please share their credentials, work experiences and recommenders, publications if any...etc and everything else which made them stand different and got admitted...
If not in public post ...please P.M. me...
Thank you all in advance and congrats again...
