Honestly, I doubt that I'll get in.  I'll send in some extra stuff, but nothing that will wow them (though I'll hear within 2 weeks about a second law review article that may be published).  When it comes down to it, I am less motivated because Yale is such a good option.

best of luck. i'm sure you are eminently qualified so if you don't get in, then harvard's a tool. (and i say that as an HC undergrad)  :P


Sorry, just noticed your post!

Sheer understatement.  100% pure quality.

I can't believe you got deferred, Bass.  This has to be the most shocking admissions decision that I have seen this cycle.  I still think you're in...

By the way, for the rest of the deferrals, what are you planning on sending in?  At the moment, I am thinking about 2 additional LORs (one to send in now, one in case I get WL'd).  I will also probably write a diversity statement.

Ditto.  The hold is just bizzare.  I can't imagine what they're thinking, but I'm sure they'll come to their sense soon.

Just received the deferral today in the mail...I was completely expecting a rejection or a waitlist, since it was such a thin envelope...

why are law schools sooooooo indecisive??!!!

For your "supporting information" - just send your Yale acceptance letter, that'll get Toby's feathers all ruffled.

oh BELIEVE ME I've had my share of fun with that when withdrawing from Cornell and Fordham  ;)



Please tell me you didn't tell Cornell and Fordham that you were withdrawing because you got into Yale

There are several people who committed to hat-eating and the like (you know who you are)...well get those derbies ready!!!

I said I'd eat my hat if you got dinged, and I still don't think that's happening.  So my hat is going to remain uneaten.

Well I'm glad that you had your "share of fun" in doing so. 

If I recall correctly, none of the 4 schools I withdrew from asked me why I was withdrawing.
