Just speculating...


I would think they'd have the decency to get all KB1s done by today (last week really), since most deadlines are tomorrow. I can understand them doing WLs and rejections after May 1, since you should have made a deposit somewhere else anyway, but getting a KB1 the day after making a $500 deposit somewhere would be annoying. Better than no KB1, but still annoying.


They're Harvard and they know it. People will wait.

Also, we don't know if there are more KB1s to be had. It could be all WL or ding from this point on, we don't know. It is curious though that they have waitlisted and rejected many, but there are still some (rather strong) applicants who have yet to hear anything. It would be easy for them to just waitlist all of us because they have a large waitlist and it's very active. I'm curious as to why they're holding our applications longer than those applicants already waitlisted and dinged.


I feel like this is getting less true as time goes on. I know a number of people who at this point are like, yes you're harvard, but I've made other plans. Esp in May!

WTF is going on with them? Would they really hold apps into May and then ding people? Seems so unnecessary.

There's no way they'd ding us at this point, right?

If Harvard has the power of resurrecting an application, who knows what they are also capable of!

FRANKENSTEIN APPLICATION!

So it looks like the waitlists are rolling as they process the applications.

I guess that is one less thing to worry about...

Nothing yet.

Should I hope to survive this WL roll for another day? Orrrrr will a super late rejection roll follow?

This is ruining my productivity.

Geneva, are you going to reconsider your withdrawal? Or are you sticking with Stanford?

Congrats either way--you've had a great cycle!

Going to reconsider. Although I spent the past month convincing myself that SLS is a better fit for me than HLS, I want to give HLS a fair shake. I still think I will end up at SLS, but have tried to focus on the negatives of HLS (because I didn't want to set myself up for disappointment). Does anyone know what differentiates the 80% of interviewees that are accepted to HLS from the 20% that are not?

The 80% apparently ask to withdraw first... :wink:

Ps- Congratulations!! :D

The fact that you got an interview request this late may indicate that you are already in the 80%.

Do you think the fact that you sent withdrawal letter will impact the dean's evaluation of your interview or is the plan simply to tell Harvard you didn't expect to get it so you withdrew?
