If it's just a jump in view count (28) consider that there's a number of obsessive people that check it regularly since there's a conversation going on here. Like some type a lunatics, that have looked five times since someone's alt announced his decision (good luck, Someones! )
Also don't forget the dozens of people who lurk + mindlessly troll threads in the endless wait for five o'clock to roll around. Net intrigue of Harvard Waitlist Thread >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Net intrigue of watching the assistant at the desk next to you pick her earwax.
Heck, I've probably checked it 10 - 15 times today... It is a matter of seconds to check it on my cell phone. (A lot of us are expecting a large sword to come down on the WL soon, so with every message we assume it is the first to get the e-mail.)
I would randomly guess the waitlist has 100-300 people on it. Probably closer to the middle given my random guessing.
