Law School Admissions / Re: Call from Harvard

Maybe I'm completely off-base here, but is everyone who's gotten an a-mail from Toby this week from an Ivy?

How messed up is it that seeing this thread get bumped causes my blood pressure to double  :P

Anyway, good luck, bluesmoke! Save your nervousness for after the call  ;)

Okay, so it did turn out to be a mix-up. Toby replied back saying that he had misplaced his notes from our earlier call  :o but that everything is straightened out now. I guess it's back to waiting for the real second call. Hopefully we'll hear something back soon!

So, it looks like fensterx (who was already waiting post-call) got a call e-mail. Does that mean a new wave of call e-mails has gone out?

If so, any of you deferred folks out there have one?

So he got email, call, deferral, email, then presumptive call? 


Actually I haven't been deferred yet, so it's e-mail, call, second email, then presumptive call. I went complete on 1/12, the same day as my first call, and I'm surprised that I haven't gotten a hold/deferral yet because it seems most people are getting some kind of word within two months of their complete date. I would guess he's close enough to making a decision that it's not worth it to send out a deferral letter.

Thanks for the suggestion, lovelove. I replied to Toby and gave him the times I would be available and asked if this was a follow-up to the January phone conversation.

I'm inclined to think this is just a mix-up but who knows. Anyway, I'll keep everyone posted. And if I can, I'll try to work in a question about what's going on with people who got calls way back and still haven't gotten a decision. It's time we got some answers!  :)


Well this is weird... I just got another e-mail from Toby. It's the same exact one as my first "call me" e-mail. So I'm wondering if this is an error or possibly a second round call/interview. Did this happen to anyone else?

Oh my.  I thought my PPS would alert people that it was a joke.  Alas, my humor has failed again.  I shall delete the offending post.  Hmph...I thought it was pretty funny.

I thought it was pretty funny

Me too, FWIW  :)

Here here.  I feel like the kid that got picked last in gym class or something.  :P

Aw, don't feel bad--this is SO not gym class.

For one thing, in gym class every kid eventually gets picked.

Oops, that didn't come out sounding as comforting as I thought it would...

Well technically the last kid left isn't picked. One of the teams is just stuck with him/ her  ;)

A huge congratulations to everyone who got in today! Hope you have fun celebrating tonight.

That being said, let's not forget who this thread is intended for  :P Who's still left in the "waiting for second call" crowd? Let's commiserate and/or offer up more baseless speculation.

yeah, you lose track after a while without the call.

definitely feel like our call bunch was the red-headed stepchild of the harvard admits process...

It looks like I'll be joining you guys in the call/deferral posse in the next three days. Any new theories on what he's doing with us and why he called us so early? I'm hoping that we're the first members of the borderline/soft factor group Toby will start accepting after he's done with the auto-admit group  :-\
