What does "By late March" mean, Harvard?

Don't worry.

As long as your status on the tab "recommendations" (so not in the status tracker itself but on the "home" of your applications) mentions that the status of all your recommendation letters is received, this is fine...

The calling idea is not bad but I\'m a foreign student and cannot make the call from my office :(.

My recommendation status says: \"No current status. Please check back later\". It\'s been like this since November and my recommenders submitted them online. Now I\'m worried.


Don't be worried.

As an e-mail from Harvard noted (and as discussed by numerous posters on this board), if recommendations are submitted online, the status won't be updated in the status tracker. You have to go to the recommendations tab of the application to view the status.

Thank you! The recommendations status in the tab says: "Submitted". I think I'm just going to wait and see what happens until next Monday. :)

My recommendations appear as 'received' in the 'recommendations' page (they were all submitted online) but I don't think there is anything to worry about. HLS would have checked with you if anything was missing. They may not always update that page.

Maybe here's some schadenfreude for you -
sometimes when I view my application form, there are all sorts of formatting errors (university names overlapping in text boxes, half of one text box seemingly missing) but I was unable to 'fix' these at the time of submitting. God knows what HLS sees, whether it appears correctly to them or not. I am resigned now, anyway :) and glad to have tried irrespective of outcome! (Though it will likely still smart when I get a big fat rejection :p)


No overlaps the last time I checked at least. But a coupla sentences at the end of the second 200 worder were absent. In the Application copy downloaded immediately after submission, all is hunky dory...

Pointless worrying now but I hope they view the correct copy...and except for abrupt ending, the missing couple at the end does not have any negative externalities..

I had made the same thing in my application. But its mentioned very clearly and specifically that after writing 200 word please verify that the full text has been entered correctly or not. It also provides a link at the end of every page to check the page for printed form.

When I first entered my text which was less than 200 words still a bit was missing and I had to alter the text to accomodate it all.

I was going to send it as it was, but last moment I verified it and saw the flaw. I immediately corrected it and rechecked. Later on it was properly fitted in it!!!

@ slowbutsure...

Relax. it was the 200 worder. Because of the nature of the question, there is an element of overlap between the part II of the Personal Statement (the "This is I" Harvard part) and the 200 worder on career plan...If you have mentioned your future goals (an euphemism for career plan) in the Personal Statement, then they at least know what you plan to do and the location of that information becomes redundant...That information is conveyed to them and thats all that counts... No harm done if other determinants on your application are sound.

@ Baluza...

yes. I checked the pdf preview of each page. Like I said, the copy that I downloaded immediately after submission is showing all the essay including the two sentences...Its just trhat on the re-look I gave after logging in a while ago, they seem to be missing.. Like I said, pointless worrying about it..

It's my 200 worder as well that is affected. I tried changing it a bit and sometimes it appeared in full and sometimes it did not! It seems to change according to the version of Acrobat I use or whatever browser. It sometimes cuts me off in mid-sentence :) I think this is likely to be an extremely common problem, so don't worry. The stuff that was cut from mine is hinted at elsewhere in my app and perhaps also in my references, if my referees did as they said they would. Perhaps Harvard can see the full thing, who knows.

Mein Gott! I had never bothered to check the pdf that the embark system generates beyond a cursory look but i discover now that thw dastardly online program has done me in. Formatting errors galore and what's worse - the bottom few lines of my interests, etc. (all those 200 word questions) have been shaved off without a passing thought.

It's a relief that the resume and personal statement had to be uploaded - those pdfs have fortunately not undergone any change.

If it is a systemic problem, then it affects all applicants. It is also possible that the admissions office has a view of applications that differs from the PDF generated version. Either way, this is an issue that should be brought to their attention. Who's going to call and advise them?

Sir Supranote - you have a cool head on your young shoulders and your reasoning is as astute as that of Dr. Fu Manchu. In addition you are within America while most of us are without. I therefore have no hesitation in nominating you to telephone harvard.

I think if its a generic problem that is systemic (this word has been used so many times last year in the context of "youknowwhat"; sorry:)), at this late a time, it might not help much to talk to them about it.. In any event my money is on the fact that if the Program does shave off a coupla sentences or otherwise does funny with the formatting with most applications, that will not be wasted on the admissions staff and they will appropriately discount the "error".

In arguendo, the 200 worders and Part II of the Personal Statement overlap to a degree (PS being uploaded has not suffered as is the case with the resume too) and because of the overlap, the information shaved off in most cases will be captured there.

The best part, even with these constraints, is that the technical skills part of the Personal Statement -- showcase event as it were, was to be uploaded and hence is captured safe as a house..:)

(on a different note @ supranote1), I understand you are an American JD. Just wanted to know where you graduated from and what your area of interests is. You, needless to state, seem very articulate in your expression...

Haha, oh dear, I appear to have inadvertently opened a can of worms by saying that, now everyone is discovering their applications are similarly fubar!

I think it's a bit late to be calling them about problems with the form, even if it is a systemic issue. They will probably announce on Monday so decisions will already have been made. :S

I'm liking the panicky humour that keeps showing up in this thread, though :) makes me feel less dreadful about the whole process!

I graduated with honors from a Tier 1 law school in the United States and have several areas of interest, namely in American constitutional law, as well as other, practitioner-based interests that I have developed while working since law school. I have numerous publications and wish to continue publishing, expanding my current scholarship and taking nuanced approaches to tangentially related issues and wholly distinct issues. My desire is to teach, which is the objective of the program for American applicants.

I certainly would call but am unable to do so from work during the day. I've also called previously and lack the persuasive acumen of some others who were able to glean information that is beyond the standard "late March" type of response. As such, though I would like to hear it from the horse's mouth, I defer to others who might be more successful at gleaning admissions info. :-)

HLS!

Today, Friday, March 19th, is the last day of what is known by conventional norms and knowledge as mid-March. This part of the month immediately precedes the last part of it, which is also by conventional norms and knowledge considered as LATE MARCH.

In business writing and probably in all kinds of writing, we only have three reasonable and conventional parts of a month, early, mid, and late.

March is a thirty-one-day month. We therefore only have 10 days for each part: 10 for the early part, 10 for the mid part, and 11 for the late one.

Without a doubt HLS had meant a specific period when it selected "BY LATE MARCH" as the language to indicate its likely time for releasing its admissions decisions. Otherwise, "BY LATE MARCH" phrase would make no sense at all.

I do not believe that "BY LATE MARCH" means the same as" IN LATE MARCH."

I hope that Friday is the big day... Over the past three years HLS never delayed beyond March 20th..

Good luck everybody..

HLS!

Today, Friday, March 19th, is the last day of what is known by conventional norms and knowledge as mid-March. This part of the month immediately precedes the last part of it, which is also by conventional norms and knowledge considered as LATE MARCH.

In business writing and probably in all kinds of writing, we only have three reasonable and conventional parts of a month, early, mid, and late.

March is a thirty-one-day month. We therefore only have 10 days for each part: 10 for the early part, 10 for the mid part, and 11 for the late one.

Without a doubt HLS had meant a specific period when it selected "BY LATE MARCH" as the language to indicate its likely time for releasing its admissions decisions. Otherwise, "BY LATE MARCH" phrase would make no sense at all.

I do not believe that "BY LATE MARCH" means the same as" IN LATE MARCH."

I hope that Friday is the big day... Over the past three years HLS never delayed beyond March 20th..

Good luck everybody..

I graduated with honors from a Tier 1 law school in the United States and have several areas of interest, namely in American constitutional law, as well as other, practitioner-based interests that I have developed while working since law school. I have numerous publications and wish to continue publishing, expanding my current scholarship and taking nuanced approaches to tangentially related issues and wholly distinct issues. My desire is to teach, which is the objective of the program for American applicants.


This is extra ordinary. To your education honours, to your desire to teach, and finally to you, I say - Bravo!


JSD, thank you for your kind remarks. I wish you were on the committee! We all bring something unique to the table, and I hope that we have an opportunity to dialogue in the classroom and across the barstool in person! Good luck to all, of course, and may we hear good news sooner rather than later....
