I told myself I was ready to wait 2 weeks after my 2/2 JR1 before I start getting antsy, but seeing 3+ 2/2 JR1s get the JR2s today is making me a tiny bit crazy.

Hold fast. If you don't hear something today you should hear something soon (hopefully, fingers crossed, knock on wood).

I'm in Hawaii and got my JR2 while getting ready for work at around 6:30am my time.

Saw a missed call from that sacred 617 area code - and nearly puked from the shock of it.

1/03 Submitted, 1/20 JR1, 2/07 JR2.

I'm going to the the H-Bomb!

G'luck everyone!

Thanks! I don't know, that's how I felt after getting that hold email and then, right when I had given up hope, the Rube blindsided me with that email. So you never know, he's works in mysterious ways, haha.

I recently received an email saying that my application has been held. The email invites me to "update my application" with fall grades, additional LOR's, and also, "If you have a special interest in attending Harvard, please feel free to tell us about that as well."

I'm already finished with undergrad so I don't have any new grades to submit.

As to the "special interest in attending Harvard," I'm really not sure what to say other than, "Harvard's awesome, I really want to go there." Which obviously sets me apart from the other 8000 people applying.

Anyone have any ideas?

If you haven't got a call at all (JR1, whatnot) you are a sure rejection, right?
My numbers are nowhere near Harvard, so I'm not expecting to get in anyway, but why won't they send the rejection letters? I'm confused.

Nope, you're not a sure rejection. You could get held and those who get held can be WLed or accepted.

I know people in the past who got held and then WL'd. I'm sure a few get held and then accepted.

But with my numbers it's definitely a long shot.

I submitted 3 LORs when I applied (way back when), and now I've been held for a month. I have another good LOR sitting on the LSAC servers - should I submit it?

Is it qualitatively different? If it adds to your application, I don't see why not.

When were you held, today?

Ah, I missed that. Just wondering if the forgotten are still being picked up by these various waves of decisions.

Thanks. If I just click "assign new letter" on LSAC.org, it sends automatically, right?

Yup, there should be a record of it as well under "reports"

Haha, I love that show so much. About two minutes after I made a login, I realized that I should have named myself "Clown Baby."

Naw just coffee. And to be less jumpy at the possibility of more decisions coming down from Cambridge.

But there aren't any decisions! They are playing with our emotions, come on held & forgotten let us withdraw together to teach them a lesson!!! (Haha)
