Got my JS2 this morning-- has anyone gotten the email yet? Paranoia is really starting to kick in... :?


No email for me and JS2 was yesterday. I'm sure cause I checked my call log again hahaha. Others ITT have obviously gotten emails, but to my knowledge the batch for this latest wave hasn't gone out yet.


Not embarrassed to admit that I've been lurking this thread for a while, and it seems like most people in the 2/5 acceptance wave got their emails ~8 days (or so) after their JS2.


Is that 8 days to get the initial email confirming JS2? Or 8 days to get one's own jd.harvard email address? Thanks!


I got the confirmation email 2 days after my JS2 and then my email address 9 days later.

Such a shame I have no material proof that I actually got accepted.. 2/2 acceptee and still no hard copy letter in my mailbox


I told them I hadn't received any mail and asked if that was normal. They said I should've already received it, so I asked them what address they sent it to, and that's when it all became clear.

It's definitely unnerving to not have the physical copy. I hope you get yours soon!

Finaid offer here this morning too. Would be even more bummed if I didn't find out how impressive LIPP is at ASW (although some of the graphs in that presentation were suspicious at best). But on the whole, pretty unbelievable weekend.

Same form as for an application fee waiver. If you didn't receive a fee waiver and your financial situation has changed, can submit a fee waiver form. Need all your financial info + parents. It's a drag.

And you can get to Harvard for free from Logan since they don't require you to pay when getting on the silver line at the airport and that automatically connects you to the red line.

So its: Silver Line --> Redline (Outbound) --> Get off at Harvard Square --> Walk 7 minutes

But I'm assuming you probably want to go to your hotel/room/friend's place first so...

You can get on the T for free at Logan? That seems questionable

You definitely can. You have to get on the Silver Line which acts as a bus at Logan and eventually converts to an underground tram type deal, then you can make a free transfer at South Station to the Red Line.

Yeah it's great right? It's also a pretty reliable service. I think the main reason for the free aspect is there is no place to put money on a Charlie card/buy a Charlie ticket at the airport which would kind of suck if you didn't already have a Charlie card...

ALSO tangentially related - each hop on the T is now $2.65 not $2.50 so don't buy the $5 ticket option on the machine like I did! You'll have money left over on the ticket that's useless unless you want to go to a ticket center and pull the value off the ticket and put it on something else. Actually just get the card - it's free at only $2.10 a hop if you use it.

Harvard gives you a $5 ticket for the Boston event that's supposed to get you there and back that obviously doesn't anymore. They said they would correct that for the April ASW though!

Lol @ the T being called reliable. Don't suppose you were here for the half month it wasn't operational? :lol:
It is convenient though, when it is running. And don't forget the bus service, which runs more reliably and to just as many places for cheaper!

Err yeah sorry I meant reliable in the summer :). I was also more specifically referring to the silver line shuttle which I've never had issues with though

I thought it was cheaper off-peak hours or something. The card they gave me worked to get there and back for the Boston event.

There were 3 of us at ASW who went out together at the same time for the Sunday night event and all came back together and for 2 of us the cards were sufficient for fare both ways. For the other person, they had to add more money. So I really don't know how to explain that haha.
