I completely understand your frustration Destiny09, having gone through the admissions process myself, but I do wonder whether that would be the most productive way to handle matters. I know of many people who got into YLS but failed to get into HLS; and ditto the converse (let's be frank - the admissions process can sometimes be wholly idosyncratic). Though I know it is difficult to do so now, try your best to not perceive the admission/rejection process as posing questions about your own identity (a rejection from YLS does not mean you're any less of a law teacher than you were before) and see this as a unique and valuable challenge: you now have the opportunity to go to HLS and prove to the doubters that they made a mistake - not many people have that opportunity, especially in one of the top schools (or to many, the top school) in the US like HLS.

thx..yasminm and you're one of the greats on this board for all your advise...yes the whole process needs overhauling so people can compete on merits rather than the need to promote a brand...

Agree that the process can be more transparent - but until that is changed, we'll just have to work within the system and to see how we can best achieve our goals through the imperfect framework that presently exists. Hope you feel better and, though I'm not personally invested in this either way, I do hope you take up the opportunity to excel at HLS!

@destiny...yasmin is totally right, the system is intransparent and you really should consider going to HLS! Its a great school and it will be a great year with a lot of opportunities for you! Don't waste that. You worked hard and you deserved the best, and Harvard is one of the best! Damn your lucky man!! ;)
