They've had our applications for quite some time now (in some cases, 6 months), and know our qualifications. It's two weeks away from deposit deadlines, they should also have a perfectly clear view of what the applicant pool/their class looks like.
Is this simply because they send out rejections in waves? Even then, it seems like they should know who they are going to reject by now--making the wave any later in the cycle is a bit unnecessary.
Also, does anyone see a pattern/logic to the acceptances/decisions so far? It seems a bit random from a numbers perspective.
Edit--My take: Actually, I do see some sort of pattern: high GPAs. Perhaps they have already shored up their LSAT median and are now trying to work on the GPA? Also, they could be waiting for some sort of big movement on Harvard's part--maybe they think/know this is going to have a big impact on their matriculation rates.
there probably won't be many straight rejections from here on. I'm guessing worst case scenario is reserve for most, if not all, of the silence group
