I would just like to say on I page like 210 of the Columbia thread I prophesized the thread was about to blow up on itself. So yeah, my psychic powers were good on that one.

Wish I could use those powers to find out whats going on with my Harvard app. =/

Word, starry, looking at that thread makes me super relieved to be in the position that we are in.

It actually relaxes me a little bit about Harvard...I basically feel very que sera sera about my eventual ding.

Is getting the complete email without JR1 a bad sign? Do people get JR1s after it or mostly before?

I just applied last week and was wondering if someone could please tell me the order off statuses up to receiving a decision on Harvard's status checker? At what status do people usually receive a JR1 and how long do decisions usually take? Thank you and good luck to all!

shoop wrote:CONFUSED. Same issue as juliachild-ish.

I submitted 12/25, got the application acknowledgment email 1/3, and my status checker went to "Under Review" on 1/14.

BUT, this morning I got an email that my application is "complete." But my status checker hasn't changed from UR 1/14.

I was also mildly disturbed that the "complete" email said "We will notify you promptly once a decision is made. Those decision notifications will be made via email."

Everyone knows you get into Harvard by a phone call from JR. Has anyone who's gotten into HLS gotten this same complete email, or are they preparing me for my inevitable email ding?


That is how Harvard's status checker works. People who have high enough numbers etc usually submit, go UR, hear from JR, and then go Complete. It happens to everyone and has been well documented over and over in the last few months. Also- that e-mail is sent to everyone. Yes, he calls, but that e-mail is sent to everyone so don't worry about it. (Essentially, chill, you're fine.)

Edit: Also, the status checker will stay at review (not complete) and even if you don't get the JR1 before you go complete, you're fine. You're probably not an auto-admit, but neither is most everyone. People have gotten calls even months after.

Second Edit: YES, YOU DO GO UNDER REVIEW BEFORE YOU GO COMPLETE. <3 Lzy

^^ I wonder how many times I can quote this before it will get mad at me for having too many quotes inside quotes. NO ONE ask about complete vs. UR and I won't have to test this out. <3 Lzy

Since they basically could not work last 2 days, they all forgot what they were doing and currently busy watching a video called "Previously on "Saw - Harvard Version"". A summary of story so far.

Open Letter to All Lucky People:

If you are so lucky as to receive a JR1, please let us know. The worst that can happen is being stalked, having your phone number learned and subsequently e-mailed to thousands of telemarketers with preferred time for being called stated as your JR1 time. Yeah that's about it. Do not worry. Please share.

Hmmm first Friday since apps closed imminent, but admissions have been closed for two days. Come on interesting (a.k.a. JR1-filled) day.

Verisimi, is that a Firefly avatar I see? I love Joss Whedon to death! Also, fingers crossed for both JR1s and JR2s tomorrow, to make up for the utter lack of movement in days and days...

I actually enjoyed printing it out, signing it, walking down to the post office, and mailing it off. More real than PDFs and emails.

Haha YUP, you're the first person to openly recognize it. Hmm 1am on the East Coast means 7-9 hours until we know if there's anything beyond continued lethargy this weekend. Come on movement!

Technically it's a Serenity tar. Mal never wore those (ugly) suspenders on the TV show.

I dunno, I should probably watch it again, but I believe I am the sole person out here who wasn't blown away by Firefly. It wasn't bad... maybe just not enough lazors for me or something.

Does anyone know about how long it takes extra letters of recommendation to appear on your status checker? Mine was sent early this week and I was wondering when I should expect to see it appear.

Took mine about a week and half to show up.
