I've even finished my new PS and asked for more LOR's. So I didn't pay much attention to appealing to the adcomm. Sorry I can't be of more help here.
You were/are of help and I (hopefully we) are grateful for the time you took out. TLS has a thread for Harvard class of 2013 here viewtopic.php?f=25&t=94173&start=75, so people can help with finding a place to live, financial aid, and so forth. Again congrats.
He did say they had a few more spots though? Just curious....
Great thanks Unitas for the helpful link! I just realized this site is quite a treasure trove!
In terms of spots left, what JR said, and I quote, was "we are trying to fill the last few spots for the class..." I'm not sure whether "the last few" could be understood as "a few more" here. I don't want to dig more into the semantics here coz English is not my native language, but my gut feeling is that there may be less than 5 spots, if there is any.
