I think those are elaborate trolling attempts, there is a single JR2 for MLK as well, which caused a lot of speculation but in the end nothing happened on that day.


Well, I believe there were actually a lot of JR2's reported on the Harvard thread last year on MLK, which is what caused the speculation for that day. I haven't looked into President's day, though.


Regarding this, final word comes from @hlsadmissions (Ye they have a Twitter now)

"Office closed Mon but keep one eye on your phones for our next round of admit calls. Have a great weekend!"


So, Tuesday?

Huh? How did you interpret that tweet? That they will be calling Monday despite the office being closed?

Maybe it means Tuesday; but then again (and this may just be the anxiety of a fevered mind) maybe it means today...or even Monday (we're closed on Monday, but (still) keep one eye on your phones!).

I wouldn't send it. They'd just reply with some form message "we can't release that information" etc. etc.

That's what I read it as--our office will be closed BUT we might be calling.

Yes just like that guy that received a JR1 call from a different number when the office was closed due to snowstorm.

JR has a personal phone :)

And also:

"Office closed BUT keep..."

not

"Office closed therefore keep..."

Yeah, I could see any of those interpretations as valid. I guess they just want us to keep our anxiety levels up at all times :P.

Also, how do we know that's a real HLS twitter feed?

*waves hand* Meeeeeeeee!

If JR is dedicated enough to make JR1s from his home/cell number during a blizzard, I would think that a mere federal holiday wouldn't keep him from making JR2s in his typical fashion.

This is relevant to my interests as well.

Edit: Also, did the dings come via email? I hope so b/c I don't have access to regular mail.

Can't believe it...held. Is it strange I'm humbled to still be under consideration?

No. I felt honored as hell to get the held email. I expected a straight ding.

Held Friday. Had JR1 in January. I have been reading the sticky thread about LOCIs and figuring out what I want to address in my Harvard LOCI. In the LOCI thread they mention naming specific peer schools that you have been admitted to (saying even though I've been admitted to X school, I am still very interested in....)

I recently found out I received a full Darrow. Would it be advantageous to say that I've been awarded a full Darrow at Michigan, but am still very interested in H?

Thanks for any thoughts on this.

These are just thoughts from an uninformed perspective, but I would say that if you do mention it, do it carefully considering undertones. Harvard doesn't give merit aid, so if you mention the Darrow it may give them a sense that you're looking at the possibility of going somewhere else for free. If you do mention it, be sure to make it clear why you would pick Harvard over the Darrow (would you definitely, btw?), just don't make it sound like a scholarship negotiation letter.

PS: I was also held on Friday, and am also trying to figure out how I'll tell Harvard that, surprise surprise, I'm still interested.

Thanks for this. I have no idea what I would do in the case of Darrow vs. HLS. If I do mention the Darrow, I'll definitely do it judiciously. Not sure if I will address it.

Good luck with the letter.

JR1 -> hold is no fun.

If I had a JR1 on the 8th and still haven't heard anything new... is this a bad sign?
