Congratulations to the members of the Class of 2022 admitted today! You are an awesome group, and we’re excited to welcome you to Cambridge. Look out for plenty of emails in the new year about claiming your HLS email address, signing up for Admitted Students Weekends, and more.

For everyone who did not receive an admit call today – please do not stress. You remain under consideration.

For everyone who has not been interviewed yet – we’re only getting started. The admissions committee will be conducting several hundred more interviews between January and March, and plan to admit hundreds more students between now and April 1. Literally, hundreds.

And for those who have not yet applied – there are lots of 1Ls at Harvard Law School right now who applied right up to February 1. Take your time, and get that application exactly where you want it to be before you press submit.

Our office will be closed from December 24 through January 1, so this will be our last post for 2018. We know that plenty of people apply during the winter break, and we’re excited to read your applications when we get back.

In short – more to come in 2019.

– KJ (and the J.D. Admissions Team)
