Just got the WL email. 173/3.7. Harvard is my dream school so hopefully there will be many openings!

Hmmm. Still waiting. Seeing people getting WL with my numbers is encouraging, but this is getting quite frustrating.

Yeah, this kinda feels like we're all in the wishful thinking group. :/

Godspeed, everyone.

Long-time lurker here. I am still waiting for a response, too. Submitted late Jan. Held late March. I've mailed two LOCIs. 2 years WE. Graduate degree from Ivy. URM. I think my softs are why I'm even able to post in this thread.

Those of us still waiting are probably doing so because of a logistical/administrative hold-up. It must take awhile to put all these applications in the system or something...

What happened to those left standing/hanging after the big waitlist wave last year? Eternal purgatory?

Judging by LSN, there were dings before the WL, so I don't think anyone was left standing/hanging after WL emails...

My words are based in LSN truth!! :D

The previous WL wave was simply too small to call a real wave. This one is massive. It's clearly the last one.

Plus, it's easier to be optimistic for you than for myself :P

Yes. The big pull off of the waitlist occurs in mid-May. A few people are then accepted in July and/or August if any spots open up.

I think he/she means any last minute interviews for holds that still hadn't been waitlisted by this point.

This. It would SO suck to watch everyone with numbers similar to ours, or not, get waitlisted and then some dings lol.
