The status in the "Applications" column went to "completed." Are people talking about the status in the "Law School Report" column usually?

I think people are referring to Harvard's status checker. You'll receive an email of confirmation with the username and password for the status checker a few days after submission.

Hey guys, checking in!
Got my lsat score a few days ago...175 (3rd try). I have average softs and a superior evaluation from lsac (international student). I'm currently doing an LLM in the UK but plan to apply to Harvard soon. Do you guys think I have a decent shot?

Similar background--I've looked at pretty much every applicant on LSN with around a 3.6 and the cutoff seems to be pretty hard at 174/175 unless you've been in the military.

Yep.

Check out this tool and you'll see basically no one below a 3.7 gets accepted without a 176. Once you're at 3.75, GPA takes over and they start taking lower LSATs.

also what's the significance behind going from "submitted" to "complete?"
im looking at the excel sheet now and the # of days it takes to get to complete seems to vary pretty widely?

Question about the Spreadsheet, the "JS1 Wait Time" is the time people waited after going "Complete" until the JS1 call or from the JS1 call until the interview itself? Is it the former? I can't imagine someone waiting for 92-98 days from the JS1 call until the interview :shock:
