On the application it states we have to request a fee waiver from LSAC before we can request one from Harvard. How do we do that? Lol

Did you get an email or what? As of yet, I can only access the weird HLS status check website from the application email, not the LSAC one everyone else uses and H's website takes you to when you click "check status." Does 'complete' give you access to LSAC site?

e-mail from HLS titled "HLS Application Complete". Click through weird HLS status check confirmed that I'm complete. No, still can't access via LSAC.

When did you submit your app? Has anyone else got the complete email?

Is there any point in writing a "why Harvard" essay?

Nah, I wouldn't recommend it. If you have some sort of truly exceptional reason that Harvard would be a perfect fit then maybe, but I think the answer is no in most circumstances.

Does it also appear on your status checker page? I submitted mine the day the app opened, but I did not get the complete email yet.

Yup, status checker says complete as of 9/23.

Per the directions, I would need not to disclose this, but I'm wondering if I should list my open container violation anyways? Any thoughts? All that came of it was a ticket which I paid, and it was removed from my record.

Yup, I just got one too. I guess we can call this JS0

LOL :lol:

tbh gave me more motivation to crush this September LSAT.

I wouldn't worry about it; I just received one, and both my LSAT and GPA are below the 25 mark, so I don't think it means much.

don't take my joy from me


B..but what else is this forum for? #retake

Did you get an e-mail saying your file went complete? Both the "Application" and "LSAC Report (CAS)" items on the Application Checklist have green check-marks next to them, but I'd still expect it to say, "File complete" somewhere with a date change or something. How do you know yours is complete?


Yeah when you actually officially go complete they send an email saying your file is complete and the status checker also updates the date with that same message

Mostly because I read somewhere that you should always disclose everything
