Pretty please all those admitted to Harvard, withdraw from Columbia if also admitted there. Lots of people in limbo over here waiting for the sun to shine!

Also UChicago... I mean come on, you know you are going to go to Harvard so don't just let the time run out at the others schools. A simple short email withdrawing your acceptance could change another kids life.

DInged. I'm taking it in stride.

I wish the very best to everyone who was admitted to HLS transfer this round.

Does no ding yet mean the committee is absolutely still reviewing my application and there is still a chance?

I mean, I'm guessing if we haven't heard back by now, we are probably all dinged.

But why would they take so long to roll out all the ding letters?

My guess is that we are on a sort of rolling wait-list. As more potential transfers matriculate, they will start dinging us. Since everyone who got in last week has a deposit deadline tomorrow, I'm guessing we'll be rejected by the end of the day on Friday unless a large amount of admitted transfers choose not to matriculate.

Makes sense. I guess when they're all waiting on that SLS hammer to drop.

Still here. I am thinking last wave of dings go out today. It's been a fun ride.

Also still alive. When did you go U/R?

We might be in a waiting pile to see if SLS/CLS acceptances just coming out will affect the yield on the first wave of HLS acceptances. Seems like everyone who posted on here will have a deposit deadline that - if it didn't pass yesterday - will pass today.

Any movement today? Do decisions always come this late for Harvard or is this weird?
