I don't see it either :(. I was hoping I was just blind/stupid. So what do I do now? Awkward email time?

I believe that Harvard is accepting withdrawals by email. At least one poster on here did so successfully.

Oh, I had heard just the opposite. Alright, I'll give it a try. I just don't want to handle this rudely/imply I didn't seriously consider H's offer of admission (when cleaning my room, I think I accidentally recycled the important papers, and kept the recycle pile--I have a feeling this is going to cause me additional problems down the line :|)

Yeah, i'm not exactly sure, since I thought they wanted withdrawals by snail mail, but since one poster did it successfully might as well try it :).

Yea, which is a different scenario than cynic's, since they specifically told WLs to email to confirm they want to remain on the WL.

I just don't understand why there isn't an electronic version of the deposit form...they are just asking for this to happen.

Just email. What difference does it make to those of you who have better places to be? :cry:

I just don't want to piss off Harvard. In general, pissing off entities with the endowment of a small country's GDP can't be a good idea. But I could see myself applying for a job there at some point, and I don't think being the kid who was too (insert bad adjective here) to send in a withdrawal form would help my case.

Just withdrew, best of luck to you all -- hopefully it means good news for somebody else!

So, theoretically, they could begin to move on the WL today since the deadline passed...

Probably not today since they have to go through all the paperwork and tally up the totals. I assume most who needs to withdraw from the WL have already done so, they have a bit of time to review the files left and make some inroads toward a move or 20. I say this Friday for next week.

I am curious, are there still people pending (without a decision)?

Last year, the first email invitation for WL--> admit interview was May 6th. I think we could hear as early as friday.
Additionally, I wanted to note that, as far as TLS was concerned, every person asked to interview was admitted, although a couple people had to wait a few days to hear back (but most heard at the end of their phone call).
Furthermore, the first calls were to URMs, specifically AA URMs with high GPAs and lower LSATs. The majority of the admitted students were AA URMs, but that could very well have to do with a failure to successfully recruit AA URMs last year- it could be very different this year.

I thought you were set on Stanford? Would you take Harvard over Stanford?

It's kinda like saying "Remember how I said I was interested like 6 months ago, and again like 2 weeks ago? Well I'm still interested now too. Just thought u might wanna know. Can you let me know when u get this by the way?"

At least that's how I see it. But what do I know? :) Maybe send something else, if you must. Get published recently?
