May look like Will Smith's son (Jayden?) when he is a teenager, or may not. Dno.

WL today (4/25), was UR 3/15, Complete 3/24. 173, 3.7 Ivy.

I'm debating now between working for a year at Quinn Emanuel, and deferring Columbia or depositing at Columbia and riding the WL at Harvard. (I know, I shouldn't have applied if I was so borderline and as late as I was, too late to change anything now).

EDIT: no JR1 yet.

If more waitlists came out today, why are there no updates on LSN?

y'all on the waitlist or without decisions, yesterday JR emailed admitted applicants to ask that we email him when we make our decisions. Hopefully this accounting means that he's getting ready to make some more JR1s and JR2s!

Not sure whether to thank you for looking out for us even though you're already in or cursing you for causing more sleepless nights.

Did that only go to admitted applicants who haven't sent their deposit in yet?

Entirely possible. I just sent my deposit in the past few days (no way HLS got it yet), and it would have been a redundant email to send committed students --

"As our May 1 deposit deadline rapidly approaches, I wanted to check-in one last time to see if I could answer any questions or connect you with any of our faculty, students, or alumni. Please let me know how I can be helpful to your decision-making process.

Additionally, when you are able to reach a decision, it would be extremely useful if you could let me know via e-mail, in addition to sending in the deposit or withdrawal form. Thanks so much for your help with this!

I look forward to hearing from you soon.


Best,

Josh"

Thanks! I sent mine in few weeks ago and I think it's already been processed. Hopefully they haven't just forgotten about me.
