I emailed them and just got this reply:

Admission decisions for LL.M. applicants will be made by late March. Once the decisions have been reached, you will be notified promptly and will be able to log in to a password-protected site to check whether you have been admitted, denied, or placed on a waiting list.

Kind regards,
Harvard Law School Graduate Program


So judging from the email we are probably not going to find out today

Oh well, thanks for that piece of news guys. Surely helps in bringing the anxiety level down. But going by these mails, I don't hope to receive a reply this week also. *praying that I'm wrong though*

I have already set the countdown app on my computer and phone to 19 March (local time) i.e. 18 March Cambridge time, from weeks ago.

I'm still going on the above assumptions.

Watching the seconds on the app ticking away.....

From his previous posts, I gather he has not applied this year. So he is very likely trolling us...

I have a friend of mine who is studying there and told that the list of admitted applicants is done. Her best guess is that they're gonna release it this week (probably until March19).

they may have got an expedited offer due to a deadline with another university

i know these situations are rare, but they are not unprecedented

I received several offers so far and the closest deadlines are April 15th. How is it possible to convince HLS (which is known to release decisions last) to expedite?

It seems that we are getting the results this Wednesday (or next week at the latest). But definitely before April 15, so I do not think they would grant you an expedited decision. Though you can always try and email/call them.

Let's hope for the best then.
Good luck to everyone!

@LLM2015/16

Why are you trolling again? Was it not enough that you made a mess of the Cambridge thread.

FYI JSD is an alumnus, recently finished with a doctorate. I have seniors at HLS who have confirmed this.

If you keep up this behavior I will have to report you again.

they usually only release an expedited offer to ppl who have been offered a major scholarship at nyu because nyu demand that scholarship offer holders remove pending applications.

and if you look at the app tracker the person who claims to have a harvard offer clicked that he intends to enrol at nyu.

this could simply be an expedited offer

And still, I would like to get an answer based on something.
Don't take "I say so" for an answer.

I see how serious you are...

If you want a conclusive answer, you can always email HLS.

This is an online forum, not a courtroom. We take posts at face value. As of date nobody has posted receiving any offer from HLS for this year despite plenty of applicants having offers from Yale, Stanford, Columbia, Michigan. In previous years threads I have not come across anyone who said they got an expedited offer. The App tracker is quite obviously a mistake, a joke or a late updation.

I still do not see what your issue is. I have found nothing objectionable in JSD's posts. If you want to quarrel please do it privately.

Hi all, I wish you all are well. Hope we all get to hear good news, I know how tough it is to wait; but at least we get to share this experience.

I would like to ask those who know students from previous years. I've been getting admission offers from plenty of great universities. But I've been waitlisted by Upenn, which crushed my hopes of getting into Harvard :( . I wish to know the minimum requirements that students got in with just to be prepared for the worst. And how much of an influence does my nationality have on my application - in terms of diversity- .

Thanks
