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!
