Re: Harvard Students and Grads Taking Questions

When do you start to see movement on the waitlists? I'm a rising 2L ranked like #12 on the waitlist for a seminar I really want- is there hope? There’s not a ton of movement early in the summer, and then they pause until August. But once it picks up again, things tend to move a lot. #12 is a good p...

Hi there! an any current students tell me how they found off-campus housing and recommendations for where to look?
Ended up using craigslist, and that seems to be the way most do it. Another option is: https://www.harvardhousingoffcampus.com

Re: How to handle letters of recommendation as an older student?

Hi teez, LoRs of the academic variety are a really important part of your law school application. You do have some challenges here, but none of them insurmountable. I would encourage you to try to cultivate relationships with professors even with your limited facetime. Being able to get a strong rec...

Re: Class of 2021: It's so c0Ld in the D.

I got pulled into a LinkedIn rabbit hole today, and I found another person with my exact name who's a very bad law blogger and student at a TTT in my area. I fear my legal career may be over before it even begins.

Re: When do I visit a law school?

You should visit ASWs when you are accepted. Individual visits that early won't move the needle on your application, and depending when you do an individual visit, you may get less attention from adcomms because they will be busy at recruiting events or reading applications. Depending on the school,...

Re: Law School Success

No, there's not. The people who make decisions based on where they think they will land in the class are doing it wrong. Usually the thinking goes something like this: "I know most students as ABC Law School don't get good jobs, but people at the top of the class do. I'm smart so I'll likely be at t...

Re: ASU $$$ vs Emory $$

Hi there, if by "international law/human rights/NGOs/maybe government" you mean the more unicorn-y outcomes, then it's going to be a challenge landing those kinds of jobs from either of these schools. Also note that US gov jobs require US citizenship, so that may close a few doors. If those are the ...

@Cog2k & I are at ASW and we want to meet the rest of the LSL. We have a code going around. It is, "Did you think the clam chowder needed more salt?" 😂😂
I'm down to meet up with some LSL people tomorrow! Getting a table at breakfast would be easy, yeah?

Sorry if this is a little off topic! Do you need your email address, information, etc. before you can apply for financial aid? :) I haven't gotten mine yet, and was trying to apply for aid last night.
Yes, you'll need it to setup your HarvardKey, which is what you'll need to apply for aid.

Re: Deferrals and waitlists

The deferral deadlines relative to deposit dates will be school-specific. Generally, however, a deferral is you accepting their offer, and requires that you not pursue admittance elsewhere.

Re: Harvard Law Admitted Students (Class of 2021)

Sooo for the people who are decided already, where is everyone thinking of living? Looking for a 2 br close to campus for my family and me that won't require me to sell one of my children and/or half of my vital organs to afford. I'm beginning to think a Supreme Court clerkship is easier to come by.
