Also, for those who asked I was never held. I went complete 1/23 and haven't heard a peep since.

Oh wow...this changes things a bit.

It's like they're doing everything left in their power to avoid making decisions on those of us who are held and still waiting...

Ah please share!

Edit: oops didn't read the bottom part. Does that make things better or worse for me?

You're totally unaffected by any of my speculatory ramblings.

Hey everyone, sorry to be "that person" but I have a few questions that i want to clarify that have been asked earlier in the thread. I just want to make sure I'm getting good information, and I'm sorry if this irritates people!

1) What is the percentage of people who receive KB2s after KB1s? (what are my chances...)
2) How quickly do we hear after a KB1, either hold, reject or KB2?

A million sorries.

1) 80%
2) It could be a day, it could be much longer. There's no standard time that Harvard waits to give the KB2s. Considering that it's the end of April, you'll probably hear a decision either way in the next week.

Nooooooo...

Not at all am I keeping one eye on this thread while I pitifully attempt to be productive at work. Nope. Not I.

Too bad. Seems like Newman's day would be a good day to get a rejection.

No, no. They posted pictures of finishing their 6th beers for the day on the HLS twitter. Check it out.

Random question: For those of us on hold, it's probably pointless to check our status checker, right? I imagine that they are going to e-mail us first/immediately when they have an update for us?

Yes. It is pointless to check it. They will e-mail the KB1/WL/Ding.

With a KB1 this late, I'd say you're almost certainly getting a call back this week. It is in the bag. Just relax, chit chat, and wait for the KB2.

You are the master of your faith. The captain of your soul. Go ahead and crush the kb1. Just be you.

Wrong. Don't be complacent.

Don't stress. Be articulate/thoughtful in your responses. Don't stutter or act too star-struck. If you've gotten this far, you should know the rest.
