Congrats! I have two questions:

Did you just get off the wait list?

And will you consider Harvard now or will you just stick with Stanford?

Got off after being placed on "hold" in March.
Deposited at Stanford before I got into Harvard, but would am considering Harvard now.

WAKE UP! lol

OK I was wondering if people can post if they are attending, Wait listed, Wait listed and withdrew, or Accepted and withdrew from the wait list.

I'm just trying to see how many of us are left because it does not look like there are many.

If they follow previous cycles Harvard usually pulls from the URM group first..lets hope KB does the same.

Indeed! Hoping we're the first to hear!

I was held 5 Jan, Waitlisted April 15, accepted right away and I am now sitting on the waitlist.

Yeah you still have time. Last year at this point I had just got accepted into Harvard and still had a few days before my Yale decision. Sometimes it takes a while for schools to make a decision but don't let it get you down. It's not over till it's over. I had turned my LSN profile to private but check out how awful my cycle started and look where it ended up at.

Hey all! I just wanted to echo unc0mm0n1's encouragement for those of you dying on the waitlist. Last year I was held and then waitlisted AND I didn't hear anything during the initial URM wave of admits off the waitlist (which happened earlier last year, like the first week of May or something). I pretty much thought I was out after that, but then I got in the first week of June. I know several other URMs who got in throughout the summer (one person in my section was admitted in August). I think this is especially true for K->JDs since HLS really is trying to build classes with more work experience now. So good luck to all of you still waiting, and good news is definitely coming for some of you!
