They must put a tremendous amount of weight on t14. It's frustrating.

Ah. Didn't realize they don't require you to notify them other than sending the deposit in. Well, this just became even more protracted. Wonder how they're planning to let any potential new admits make the July 23rd OCI deadline.

This could be answered by an admit, but it may say that deposits must be postmarked by the 18th, but must be received no later than ____"

I would enjoy getting into Yale today less for actually getting in than for the opportunity to call Harvard and tell them they don't own me any more.

I thought the 23rd wasn't a deadline, but rather the date students can start bidding? Someone posted earlier that bidding ends on the 28th.

Yeah, you're right. Still, not much time.

I don't know whether H has changed its way of operation, but my search indicates that there were transfer admits as late as August 5th in 2008. Haven't done the search for other years.
The Early Interview Program. Is this something new in just the recent years?

The program isn't new, but the dates have been moved up several weeks in the last couple of years. That would make admitting someone as late as august much more difficult.

Because real, live people actually get into Harvard, so there's something to poast about.

Is it weird that I'm dreading changing mine to Columbia? I've told just about all of my friends, but not looking forward to all of the "zomg RLYYZZZ" and similar responses.

Transferring is awkward.

You don't have to put anything on Facebook. FYI.

I think I am going to post in my starting classes Facebook group saying I've enjoyed my time but my career and family are leading me elsewhere and throwing up some sort of gang sign that means "goodbye."

A girl at my school just did, too. But I'm not assuming that she heard this week, necessarily.
