Aiee! Annoyingly, I'll be in London with no phone for the 9 days directly before Thanksgiving. >.<


Yeah, I'm going to be abroad too. Have you thought about getting one of those skype online number thingies? I dunno though if that would be cheaper than just taking an international call on a regular phone.


No, I haven't. I think that if I'm lucky enough to get a KB1, I'll just mention that I will be away then. Maybe I'll have my parents check my voicemail every few days.

So I just left an HLS information session at my school hosted by miss Gold (I think). When I asked her about the chances of interview invites going out any time soon, she said that all of the adcoms were out doing info sessions like her so it'll be a decent amount of time until they come out. :'(.

I think you'll be lucky enough to get one...at least I hope so, since we're numbers twins :P

Thanks for the info, vincanity, I hope acceptances won't be too delayed because of that, but that's some good piece of mind for knowing that it's not expected that I have one yet!

If they don't let us in, they'll have made a huge mistake.

Dang, thanks for telling us. Looks like they have a bit of a break coming up.

I'm hoping to apply to Harvard within the next few days and was wondering if anyone in here is keen to take a look at my PS or swap. The help in the personal statements section has been valuable, but it would be brilliant if one of my fellow H applicants could give me his/her opinion. Knowing that someone with the same end goal thinks the PS is great/mediocre/shit would be quite helpful!

I'll be more than happy to reciprocate.

Thanks vincanity for the info- good thing it wasn't a TLS crowd. There may have been a hiss or two ;)

AS the crowd cries: "Start admitting, stop recruiting. You're Harvard, everyone already wants to be with you. Let us in!"

I was wondering about the recruiting. I wasn't planning to apply (3.45, 162, URM) but I got an email from Alianza at HLS inviting me to apply. Should I even waste/ invest the $80? And the anxiety that goes with it?

I don't know anything about URM cycles. Check LSN and see if anyone got admitted with your numbers.

Threat of impending waitlist/rejection? Threat of imminent interview invitation? Threat of decisions never being made and remaining in application purgatory forever?

All of those are at code yellow, I would say.

Yes. I was continuing the joke. Gotta do something to stay occupied this month.
