No way.


I presume you look like your avatar. If that's the case, I'll take your word for it.


It's a self-tar.

Take it to politics thread in the Lounge people. 10 posts in a row creates unnecessary excitement.

So I submitted Jan 20 right before deadline. Still no UR ...Does UR show up on the online status check or as e-mail or both?

I'm guessing since my #'s are below their averages, my pile gets sorted through last?

My boss supposedly is working the inside track for me, but she's 82 so maybe she forgot.

So what does that actually mean? One of my recommenders is well-placed (HLS specific) and I only asked him for the recommendation. I know people talk about a lot of well-connected people getting into Harvard but what does that actually entail in addition to the recommendation.

Held last week.

Unless they're a very famous alum and/or donate a lot of money to the school, there's not much else your recommender can do...

Is it helpful to submit a new recommendation before hearing back from HLS? I submitted almost 2 months ago and haven't heard back yet.

+1. This feels like the time when Katniss is in the trees or Katniss and Peeta are in the cave. Lots of people keep getting killed off and she's/they're just in limbo, waiting to see what crazy thing the game makers are going to come up with next. Let's hope we don't have some kind of tracker jacker/ cornucopia bloodbath situation among the held group. C'est la vie for us I'm afraid.

Also, how excited are you for the movie?!?

You should probably start reading.

Define "months ago" and were you held?

Jeez.


Went complete before Christmas, nary a word since.


Huh, that seems a bit strange at this point... don't think there are too many people in the same situation as you, so I'm not sure what to make of it. Maybe your numbers would give us a better idea?
