A piece of advice to anyone who got a bad number in the HRES lottery; monitoring the 'currently available' section at the right time can be GOLDEN. By the right time I mean around 10AM CST on Thursdays through the afternoon. Its a few hours before they send out the email about new availabilities, and they add about 10-20 good options every week.

Hey all! I was just wondering if any of you had any success getting Harvard to up their financial aid offer, in light of Stanford or Yale financial offers. I'm freaking out right now, because I just got a massive aid package from Stanford (its $10,000 more than HLS).
Stanford University has become the third elite law school to drop letter grades.Under the new system Stanford students will receive grades of honors, pass, restricted credit and no credit, reports Inside Higher Ed.The system will change for students graduating in 2011, according to the Daily Journal (sub. req.). Students graduating before that will have the option of keeping their letter grades.Law students donít get letter grades at two other elite law schools: Yale and the University of California, Berkeley. Harvard is also discussing such a move, but so far it has made no announcement of a change. Insider Higher Ed says the debate is unlikely to move to lower tier schools, where students seek to distinguish themselves with higher grades.
