This is an illogical response. The happy hour would have helped. :lol:


No I didn't want my classmates asking about whether I have decided on where to go. Because I get asked about twice a day. I am home drinking wine on my own. No questions.


Yeah, as a member of both the HLS and CLS forgotten clubs, every day my roommates ask me "did you hear anything?" and every day I tell them more and more aggressively that I'll let them know when I do.


Where I'm going is quickly becoming my least favorite questions. Especially when it leads to people squealing in excitement over my current options so then I start to feel bad about being bitter over Harvard and Columbia. People should just realize that I'll tell them when I know.

I am still stinging from my first ding... If you read my 250, you'd feel twice as bad for me lol

At this point though I would almost take a ding from HLS or CLS. That way I could fully move on and know my real options. As it is now I don't want to get too settled on anything just in case what is extremely unlikely to happen ends up happening! :shock:

Nothing will be settled until after every ASW ...

But it is not that cool to know you are not that wanted right now.

i think we forgotten are still the same in number. those who used to be forgotten who got a jr1 yesterday had subsequently been held before getting josh's love.

Can anyone who was held and then got a JR1 say if they sent in a LOCI or not? I haven't sent one and now I'm thinking I should have.

Also sent a LOCI. I sent it before I was held because I was part of the forgotten, ended up getting held the same day they supposedly received the letter which makes me feel that my file was actually lost and finding it to add my LOCI made them realize they hadn't held me yet, so they held me, and then I finally got the JR1 email yesterday. Go figure lol

I believe they regularly go out on Mondays. Can anyone confirm/deny this?

I spot (kind of) a pattern:

MON - JR2's
WED - JR1's
FRI - Holds

Actually this is the first week, iirc, that JR1s came on a Wednesday, they were usually on Thu - Fri.

Most weeks I've observed jr1s on Tuesdays.
