Congrats on the call.

Damn that I'm in CST and they've moved to Pacific.

EDIT: Are there other early JR1's from CST that haven't been called yet?

I have to go give a 10 minute presentation of research on the rationality of trial by ordeal in about an hour now.. This is about to be the definition of mailing it in. Getting HYS secure definitely kills motivation for undergrad

I'm second-guessing my apps. My PS was not nearly as good as I would have liked it to be. Too bad I realized this after submitting. :oops:

Same, second guessing everything! . For me it's particularly the JR1 that's getting replayed in my head. I think it went alright, but then again I don't remember most of it.

Does anyone know where I can find financial aid statistics for HLS?

I know they don't offer merit-based, but do they compensate for that in the need-based area? I was looking for average assistance per student and average debt at graduation.

Thanks for the help! Just got accepted today and already wondering how the heck I'm supposed to pay for it all.

Congrats to everyone who has gotten in thus far!

Should EST Jr1s start giving up hope of an early JR2?

In case anyone's wondering, I have on good authority that the order is more or less East Coast to West Coast (according to "current" address), alphabetically by last name, and that he's near the end of the alphabet for Californians. Apparently someone had the presence of mind to ask him during a JR2, and this is what he said.

Seems like the consensus is that some EST/CST went out later in the day last year, though the vast majority came earlier.

I can only hope that he has yet to get to the end of the alphabet for the EST peeps.

Haha yeah me too! I guess it doesn't even make sense that I'm slightly upset about not getting a phone call today when I haven't even gotten a JR1. :oops:

It does seem from last year that there were a few exceptions to this (some East Coasters who didn't hear until 6 pm EST, that sort of thing). I don't think anyone ever tracked down what the story was on those exceptions.

I wonder if the balance of calls right now are to folks who are post-UG/working. Maybe they wait till later to call people still in UG so as not to hit them during class?
