hope it goes/went well! :D




Thanks! It happend this morning, almost exactly at the earliest time she said she would call. It was pretty short (4.5 minutes) and pretty standard (though I was asked a follow-up question to 'what are you doing lately' and was asked about my career aspirations which seems semi-unusual). I think it went okay, but who knows. KB was pretty nice and easy to speak with. I'd love to talk to her again soon. ;)


I have a very strong feeling you will be.


haha my guess would be that this is not far off!

KB2 just now. Unreal. I'm still shaking. Couldn't be more grateful.


Updated with stats:

Applied: 10/30
UR: 11/7
Complete: 11/17
KB1 email: 11/23
KB1: 12/2
KB2: 12/8!

172 / 3.90 (Non-HYP Ivy)/ strong-ish softs

Also, I did not feel my KB1 went that well (nothing horrible), but I had cell phone reception problems and got a bit thrown off by that-- so I did not feel great about it afterwards. So don't lose hope if you feel your KB1 wasn't stellar!

:D

So, so very pleased for you.

Thestillpoint's KB1 was last Friday, so this certainly suggests that the "KB2s on Mondays at two week intervals" idea isn't really the case this cycle.

If anyone who had a KB1 on Monday gets a KB2, please do let us (or, more selfishly, me) know about it! KB1 dates are always helpful when posting a KB2, in any case. :)

Ahh, I was just emailing you. So excited! I'm sure yours will be following soon, it's still early so hopefully she'll make more calls today. :)

splbagel wrote:Harvard's system seems to be the reverse of most schools. My understanding is that "Under review" means they're putting the pieces together, and "complete" means they're reviewing it (as opposed to most schools, where "complete" means they have all the pieces but aren't reviewing it yet, while "under review" means they're in the process of making a decision).


Thanks for the info.

Also, CONGRATULATIONS to all KB2 recipients today!

Congratulations all the KB2s! Must feel amazing! :P

Anyone have any ideas about when we should expect another round of KB1s?

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all. I'll be sure to stick with this thread and offer a bit of positivity when needed!

As to when another round of KB1s will come out - sheesh, any time, I suppose. It seems like lately things have been heating up a bit, with KB1s and KB2s having an increasingly unpredictable spread.

Congrats!! You shouldn't be so shocked, your stats are great! Be sure to stop by the In at Harvard thread and discuss the merits of Cambridge winters and rent prices!

Is there anyone who is in the 11/23 completion batch and hasn't heard anything ever since.....Did they pass us over already? I have seen a few KB1s earlier last week who was complete 11/23, but they submit several days earlier than I did (11/6).
Any hope?

I haven't heard anything since my 11/23 complete email. But I didn't expect anything immediate (3.85/174). Hopefully we're still sitting in the maybe pile and not the ding pile. That said, I don't think very many people from our batch have heard back about KB1. Only one or two ITT anyway. So fingers crossed!

I'm in the 11/23 pile as well and I've been keeping tabs. No one with our submit/complete dates has heard anything. If you're going to hear something from them, I think we're the next batch.
