I'm not to worried yet. Opera seems to have been one of the first into Columbia and SEO, so hopefully that trend holds for harvard

I think this is the case with most schools. Plus they usually give out scholarships to the top URM and they won't know who they are until all applications are in and reviewed.

my 2 cents

really? that is so reassuring! that would explain a lot about my cycle so far (in everywhere besides BC that im equal to or above median and on soft or real hold everywhere else). any idea when we'll start to hear back? i guess this means we'll hear about stanford (which seems to be running uberlate this year) even later than everyone else..

+1. Hopefully Harvard shows us some love soon! Also, I am confused about the bolded. Have people started to hear back from SEO already??

I hope today wasn't that day because I had silence on my end (High LSAT Splitter).

Since the URM wave seems to have started on a Friday [unless I missed something earlier in the week?], I'd put good money down on the fact that more URM JS1s are coming out next week...and for the record I haven't heard from SEO, unless Mitterrand was referencing the interview invite?? But even so, I feel like most of the people who were invited for an interview and submitted their app in the second round heard back around the same time [i.e. mid/late December].

No new JS1s guys??? I know they haven't really sent many new ones but I just wanted to check whether JS had shown any more love to URMs this week?

Good luck all! Fingers crossed that lots of us hear good news soon.

I forgot to post on here, but I had a JS1 this past Friday. On the overall Harvard thread I only saw 1 more JS1 scheduled for the same day as mine and none since then. It seems somewhat off, as there is usually a bigger batch of JS1s scheduled. Anyhow, I will keep you guys posted if there is any progress.

hm, i wonder what the standard lsat/gpa floors are for URMs that have already received JS/KB1s at Harvard. I feel like there have to be more URM acceptances/interview coming...or maybe they already happened and i totally missed the memo?

congrats to everyone in and GOOD LUCK to those still waiting:)
