The defer sorta calmed down since it feels like I can write a LOCI/send in an additional rec...as in do something about it besides just waiting.

The theory that Defer > WL is comforting too.  :P

you had a phone call, too.  i bet you're you're light years above everyone else with the deferral email.

They're going to read my LOCI and exclaim, "Oh my god. Stop the presses. Here is someone who wants to attend Harvard Law School. Amazing."

I also just got it. How many are thinking about sending in more stuff? Toby does say that it's probably gonna be neglible...

I don't think I'm gonna bother.  There doesn't seem like much we can do anyways.

Sorry to hear about your deferral, ecureil, but I really do think you're in better shape than the rest of us.  The fact that you got a TS1 call probably means your application was in some way better than ours in the first place.

Yeah, I'm just gonna get on with my life and start visiting schools to see which one is the best for me. Then, if I somehow get accepted later, it'll be like finding a 20 dollar bill in your coat jacket that you totally forgot about, except instead of 20 bucks, it's Harvard!

It'd be more like a check for $1000 you forgot to cash 2 months ago ;)
CLS 2011.  All done.

No deferral e-mail here.
I'm officially dinged then. Harvard, please have the decency to send me that oh so classy e-mail soon.

My wife once found one of those under the dresser.

At a moment like that, the elation much outweighs the chagrin.

I did write and send

"If you have a special interest in attending Harvard, please feel free to tell us about that as well.  Any new information that you feel might be helpful is appropriate."

I think it was probably too long. But it was true. I figured I had little to lose so I went with blunt and personal.

Wow, saradsun, you're a speedy one. I am still in the phase where I'm considering sending a LOCI.
