Congrats to all who got admitted, unfortunately I did not but I believe its for the best. At least I got Berkeley today so that takes off HLS's pain of rejection.


Berkeley can be a great school if you coincide with the political views of many students there such as Socialism and Marxism. Also they say the are for free and open speech unless you happen to disagree with their viewpoints, then they aren't near as tolerant as they claim to be. If you can get past that overarching political climate, then you can get a good education. Just watch what you say in public or your classes.

Congrats to those admitted and sorry for those rejected.

Would be great to know how many are waitlisted? If anyone knows how many persons does Harvard usually put into waitlist? Any stories of getting in from waitlist? I know chances of waitlisted people are close to zero, but still some statistics could be helpful. Thanks.

I've been waitlisted too. I have questions regarding whether waitlists are also geographically made that is to say if a candidate from a particular region drops out, will another candidate from that region get in? Or is there a uniform waiting list? Is there a ranking in the waitlist?

I wonder if anyone can answer these queries.

Me too! Wow I saw the email this morning after a friend called me at 7:00 am. :D I thought Harvard send decisions on 23rd so was camping for 1 day =)

My admission decisions are all over now and I am choosing between Harvard and Columbia. I hope to get some financial waiver from columbia and if it is good I will love to go to New York city. Harvard I am not so sure...they have not give any aid to my seniors also.

I will be be saying no to cambridge this week and perhaps will withdraw from oxford also.

This is the second time I have been rejected by Harvard Law. Don't think I'll ever be able to study at Harvard Law. Will take up Oxford this year and forget Harvard now and forever :(

But I am really happy to see so many people from my country making it. Gives me a feeling of pride given the kind of competition India has to offer ! :)

Congratulations to all of you who nailed it to Harvard Law this year from across the world ! :)

I think thats not so easy but it is manageable ! I got in Berkeley thats all I see at the moment. How to deal with students there will come along in my journey - I know it will be a tough one academically- thats all I am fearing to be frank.
Thank you for the advice my friend, I'll keep it in mind.

I wish you and the rest all the best!

Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone here is a Fulbright scholar and, if so, have you received a response directly from Harvard or are you waiting for the Fulbright committee to tell you?

Wait listed too. I hope that a space will soon be opened soon. If you have any idea on how wait listed candidates are accepted, do share. Perhaps if you know the number of candidate wait listed this year or in previous years

In regard to waitlists, I received the following message from Catherine Peskin:
''Hi Stergios
Thank you for letting us know about your Fulbright nomination. As for the waiting list, we dont rank it and in any given year we may or may not accept any candidates from the waiting list last year, we did, but in the previous year, we didnt. In addition, we may know as early as mid-May or we might not know until August. In the meantime, we will keep you on the waiting list and appreciate your continued patience with our process''.

In my humble opinion, it is very risky to wait for Harvard and reject other good offers.

California, US is a wonderful place to live and get education. People are great here in America. About Berkeley Law, don't worry about it, you will definitely have a great experience here. Btw I got admission in Berkeley too in professional track LLM program and I am in touch with some of the traditional track and professional track admitted students and believe me all of them are really wonderful people. Faculty/staff here at Berkeley is again very polite and helpful. Congrats on your admission in Berkeley.
About Free speech and First amendment to the US constitution, you will learn about it later during the llm program (if you aren't aware of it at present). I have read the US constitution and nothing about is intimidating. In fact being a foreigner myself, living in the US, I feel that US has one of the best written and most liberal constitutions and pretty reasonable.

Thats really comforting to hear. I'm a muslim, a saudi one. And after all the fuss that I saw about bill maher recently, especially with some students statements of how they were jumped at with weird Q's made me a bit concerned. I think it may be a publicity thing but I know Berkeley is a great school; it'll be a life changing experience - hopefully to the better-.
Thanks again @ Shinysng

Hey. I just wanted to point out that the deadline for accepting HLS offer is next Wednesday. All the rejections to the other schools have already been made or will be made today or tomorrow.

Good luck!
