Could be residual from other days.


Possible, but another just posted.

I hope so. I sure want some movement.


It's bad ju-ju to want rejections...but I too am impatient

Not so much rejections, but more so finality.

At this point, I am praying for a Waitlist in the next 2 weeks.

Last year's waitlists started on the 15th or 16th according to LSN, so my guess is that they're starting Monday. The rejection numbers are also starting to match the amount from last year, so I think a lot of people left are heading toward the waitlist. By this time next Friday I think a lot of us are going to know where we stand. :shock:

I would absolutely LOVE to know either way. It's been a great ride, but I'm ready for the whole process to start winding down.

Yeah I agree. Which is why I'm just a little scared of a waitlist just because I'll ride it at least for a month or so to see what happens. Even though I just want to be done.

I'm a 99.9% NYU lock. The only thing that would unlock me would be HLS, and even then it would be more of a really tough decision than an automatic change of plans.

Yeah I asked NYU's Director of Public Interest/RTK (Deb) about this, and she yelled at me for event considering it.

So SLS is out? The choice is NYU or possibly a late-game harvard?

Oo it is my second LSAT score's page, must have a post here.

Poll: If JR tweeted "All holds to HLS Basement, those that agree to be waterboarded will be given JR1" would you go?

Is it like Sean Hannity where we can just agree to it but don't have to actually do it?

Was that the guy (according to Wanda Sykes) that could be broken by being given middle seat in coach, let alone waterboarding? So no, you will enter a binding contract with Harvard, in which you are required to be waterboarded for a mutually agreed upon time and Harvard is required to offer you a phone interview after your "satisfactory" performance of your "obligation".

I applied on the deadline and went UR on 3/9. Has the wave of rejections for people with similar late dates come through yet?

Similar here. Nothing yet...but there are 4 acceptances on LSN with similar dates, so I think we're headed for disappointment.

It's frustrating that they are taking even longer than Yale to tell us though. A may decision without even being waitlisted is frustrating.

Well, this and Chicago WL are my only hopes for this cycle, so I don't really care. I would like to hear something, though.

I just deposited at NYU, but would almost definitely still go to Harvard if I got in. Can't turn them down twice...

Yes, I just can't make myself go to the top ranked school I get into. Although this time I probably would...
