I would get nametaken not just any beer, but a Westvleteren 12, aka the best beer in the world.

Also, no KB1s on Friday the 13th? Come on!

Yea...me too.

The thought of dragging this out through the summer if I'm waitlisted is horrible to me right now.

Honestly, I'm ok with getting waitlisted for a few reasons.

1. I'm happy with my "if nothing else changes" choice right now (NYU with $$).
2. The stressful part is not getting rejected; it's not HAVING A RESPONSE. A waitlist will be a response.
3. If I'm waitlisted at CLS/HLS, I'll just emotionally and logistically commit to NYU sooner, and be able to put an end to some of this anxiety.

If I get in off a waitlist, and feel compelled to go to that school, then so be it. And if I don't get in, I'd be perfectly fine with that anyway.

It's April and I still don't know where I'll be living in September.

I just want to be able to put an end to this =(. Anyone have any advice on combating some of this stress? (Or is this thread completely empty by now lol).

Advice: Let it go.

When I got my KB2, I had resigned myself to the probability that I wouldn't be going to Harvard. I hadn't looked at this thread in weeks and had functionally forgotten about my application. When you aren't obsessing about something, you won't stress.

Here is the real talk: There is a high probability that if you are reading this and aren’t yet admitted (yes, you), you are not going to get in. Period. No number of genial “I know you’ll get in!!11!” posts from fellow waiters will change that fact (spoiler alert: they’re not really rooting for you). Make peace with the likelihood of your ultimate rejection and if, like me, you miraculously beat the very long odds, you can resume thinking about this.

True. Although I have done this re: Harvard--my rant was more about CLS.

Without trying to sound like a jerk, I think this is a little harsh and bit inappropriate seeing as you are one of the lucky few who HAVE received a KB2. I think we would all appreciate it if you took your "real talk" over to the admitted students thread, and let those of us still waiting hang onto the hope that we do have. We all know that it's unlikely, but here's some more real talk: I know two people personally who were pulled off the waiting list in mid-May. There is SOME hope. Period.

SO true. At this point I've very happy with my current choice, planning housing and moving and all that lovely stuff. If the remote possibility of Harvard actually becomes a reality, I freak out then. But I definitely still would just like a response. All the waiting is worse than knowing. But its harvard so I'll take it :P

I just read the WL thread from last year...
It's not for the faint-hearted...it gets pretty depressing after the first wave of admits.
Hope...always hope

Just took a peak and it doesn't look like fun. I think I'm going to draw a line to which I'll wait, probably about May 31st, and after that withdraw. I, like most here I think, am really happy with my current option, and even though it's Harvard, I don't like the idea of being toyed with through June and July.

Isn't there supposed to be a round of interviews for URMs around this time, if the schedule shown last year holds up?

Last year's schedule is not holding up, so I wouldn't trust it.

So...I quit following this thread ages ago mostly because apathy has overtaken but can someone give me an update on what's going on? I applied on like 9/15, was held in the first round of holds in January and haven't heard a word since. Are waitlists going out? Are they still dong KB1's (or whatever they're called now)?

I know this has been mentioned ad nauseum, but it bears repeating.

It's ridiculous that we have to snailmail them a signed letter to withdraw.

Its ridiculous that we have to snailmail them anything at all. Its 2012, get an anti-virus system so you can open PDFs.

Edited to remove the unneccessary "the" :p

Hello friends,

Just reporting that I received a KB2 approximately 5 minutes ago.
