"REAL" Harvard Admission Decisions


Sylvester

I called the admissions office and they told me that decisions were already made.

I was rejected

Goog luck all!

Hard luck. Just to be clear, when you say 'decisions were already made' do you know whether all decisions are complete at this point?

Thanks for any further information you can provide and comiserations once again.

Hi all, I read llm-guide for more than 2 years but I just register to post.

Reading from previous posts, I think admitted people received emails in different time. Some people receive it a few hours after the first post.

Hopefully, HLS still has available seats.

I still don't hear anything from HLS. Some people may think it's too late if I don't receive anything yet. Let's see whether I will hear the good news before the end of 21 March or maybe, I just have to wait for official rejection.

Congratulations to all those who were admitted and condolences to those who were not. Life goes on even if HLS or YLS don't offer you for admission to their "lofty" programs; trust me, you'll become a solid professional in spite of those elitists!

What is the size of the entering class of LL.M. students at HLS, and also YLS for that matter? I've seen conflicting data on this point (some say 50, others say 150).

I ask because their admission processes strike me as either ridiculously difficult ("oh, we've gotten too many qualified applicants, blah, blah, blah...") or incredibly arbitrary (e.g., cherry-picking applicants from this or that country/background, with no apparent rhyme or reason)!

Anyhow, "buck up" boys and girls who weren't admitted...you're all going to make fine LL.M. students elsewhere!

I sent an email to llmquery@law.harvard.edu and received an automated response immediately and an email rejecting my application about 5 minutes later.

Is there anyone who sent an email and received a positive answer?
It looks like if you send an email you receive an immediate rejection :-)

Ummmm, it seems like there is no admission email in this day. I'm not sure whether it means HLS already sent all of available seats at this time. (but it seems like they did)

As I saw from the other, if we send the email to ask admission office, we may receive bad news instantly.

Congratulation for all admitted people.

I wouldn't presume that just because we didn't get news from HLS that we will be rejected. Guys, don't worry. You'll have plenty of time to worry about it if you get rejected. But if you worry too much, a refusal will hurt even more.
Before applying, I prepared myself for the worst outcome, which is nothing more but a mere refusal. I can't deny that it'll be disappointing, but I am prepared. Now, I will try to occupy my mind with something else and time will pass faster. Good luck!

Hi,

I have just called the admission office and they informed me that my application was denied :-(

If you call and give your name and some details you will get the answer!

Congrats to those admitted!
A few questions: If one has been rejected does it weigh negatively to apply again a year later?
If one is granted a prestigous scholarship beforehand- do chances increase to enter?
And last - any accepted applicants this year from Finland? Or Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Iceland?
Thank you in advance.

They don't take into account previous rejections.

I received a plain rejection last year and this year they appear really enthusiastic in having me there. I received an offer some days ago and also a phone call from someone in the Admissions Office to explain the advanteges they have over Yale (I got admitted there too).

I also do not think one could jeopardize his/her application by calling them to have news. Be polite, have a good excuse for calling them - I think everyone already have another offer by now - and get ride with this anxiety.

I've been to Iceland last year, nice place!
