They have a new Admissions Director now! All future calls will be coming front Dean Jobson so probably KJ1 and KJ2 now!

Checking in bois. My cycle's results will likely decide whether Harvard is a viable option or not, but I know it would be an incredible thing for my immigrant parents to be able to say their son got into Harvard Law. American dream, baby!

This is an excellent point - I'll defer to the group on terminology but I think KJ1 makes sense ☺️

Checking in. MyLSN has me at like >80% for last 5 cycles other than last year but 0% last year soooo idk.

Though that this is the case probably makes me a pretty good ad for taking LSL/old site's advice, since I first went there considering attending UTK with a cold LSAT score.

LMFAO as an immigrant I definitely get the "Why didn't you decide to go to Obama's school?", so your comment really hit me in the feels :lol: :lol: .

Harvard's class is so big, and its 25/50/75 so high, that it'd take more than a hot LSAT year for them to make a significant move. They probably used all the extra bandwidth at 170+ to focus on other institutional priorities (GPA median, for instance, obviously benefited).
