Well if last years pattern holds, and seeing we left the anomalous single hold to JR1 behind about on time it does seem to be the case, the next movement for the held could be in March, as late as 8th of it.

Ah well the longer I go without any news is the longer I can tell my friends I still have a chance at Harvard. I might as well enjoy it while it lasts! :D

I guess if no one else is getting JR2 today I feel slightly better about not getting mine. Slightly.

JR stands for Josh Rubenstein (the dean of admissions at Harvard Law). Basically, in order to be admitted, you need to be interviewed over the phone with JR. The phone interview is called the JR1 because if you get in, JR calls you to let you know you've been admitted (which is called a JR2). There are about 1000-1200 JR1s a year, so only those in serious contention for admission get a JR1.

I see, thanks. I knew about the interviews (which I didn't get), but I didn't know that we were calling them JRs :)

Send a LOCI if you are held. It hasn't been all that long for the two of you yet. There are people under review since November. Just be patient.

I dunno, call up the admissions office and ask if you can submit additional info. They're competent and friendly over there, you'll get a straight answer right away.

Our applications are like bottles of fine wine. JR is letting them age so he can appreciate them more fully.
