It's usually 800 out of 1000-1200.

I believe the first round over the past few years has been something insane like 90%. I believe it goes down as you get in the second round (~Thanksgiving KB1) and especially when you factor in the March/April blitz.

It looks like they send the complete emails out in batches. In my case, I was obsessively checking my status checker and saw that it changed to complete before it changed to under review.


Ah I see. Thanks. I guess I'll just pay more attention to peoples' submit dates then.

Oh and congrats Soj! I don't know you at all but I benefited sooo much from the LSAT advice you've given it's awesome to see it paid off for you.

Is 800 the number of admits? Or is 800 the number of people who eventually attend (although I would be curious to know how many admits DON'T end up attending Harvard).

800 admits. The number of matriculants is generally at ~550-560

Dear Harvard,

With the markets down substantially today I realize that your ability to provide need-based aid could be impacted. As such, I am writing to let you know I will be happy to pay sticker. Thank you.

Question.

If you went under review 11/7 and went complete 11/17, should you be worried that you haven't received a KB1 yet? Or have people who applied this late not heard anything?

(Clearly I am talking about myself :D :D )

Uh no.... several of us went UR way back in mid-October and haven't received a KB1 yet.

u mad, hawkeye?

I also went UR on 11/7 and "complete" recently, with no call. However, it will be pretty much a miracle if I get a call, so take that with a grain of salt.

I was reading an old 'JR1, no JR2' thread last night, and the end-of-hope time mentioned there was around 4 pm EST. KB seems to have started later in the day than JR, though.

I'm in the South also. Perhaps she is saving us for last (please, please, please)?

LOL.

I'm doing exactly the same thing. My partner listened to my KB1, and she said it sounded a little like I was reading or reciting my answer to 'what are you doing now?' I wasn't, but I had been over it so many times in my head I can see why she would think that. I'm worried KB didn't like that.

Anyway, freaking out.

Wow, I just woke up (I'm international) and found a KB2 email sitting in my inbox. KB didn't call as our time zones really don't synch up very well and she didn't want to wake me (although I DEFINITELY wouldn't have minded, haha).
