Got waitlisted. They mention May for decision (but they say most likely will remain open into August).

Is anyone thinking on not considering other offers because of the waiting list? How real are the chances to hear back from them? Apparently many of us got waitlisted...

In my opinion this would be too risky, especially considering it's harvard. If you are waitlisted at, say, Penn, then there are reasonable chances you may be admitted after Harvard, Yale and Stanford results are out. However, the number of admitted students rejecting Harvard's offer is too low. Some will reject it because of Yale, others because of Stanford maybe.

A few others will reject it because they want to focus on law and economics and have been accepted by Chicago or want to study tax and have been accepted by NYU for example, both the best law schools within these specific fields, but then that's it... If you sum all of those, then probably it will be 10% of the admitted.. They also admit more than they can take, so if you were waitlisted your chances are unfortunately minimal.

I got in :) But taking the offer of admission is really contingent on the financial aid decision (which they said will be released on or before april 1st).

I'm rejecting Harvard + Yale + UChig + Berkeley + NYU (LLMs) for econ grad school because if you want to be taken seriously as a law & economics scholar you need a PhD in economics... Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) this is the reality for L&E scholars today because the literature in the top L&E journals are written in either theorem-proof form or consist of empirical regression tables, both of which are relatively inaccessible to the average non-economist lawyer.
