Harvard Waitlist 2012

Postby Mista Bojangles » Thu Apr 19, 2012 10:03 am

Just got the email, and don't see a thread for this yet, so I figured I'd get this circus off and running. Who's going to be riding this out?

For those interested, here is last year's waitlist thread.


Edited to include the 2012 Harvard Waitlist Form and the linked 2012 Harvard Waitlist Spreadsheet (thanks to TLS poster thelawschoolproject). Take a moment and add your name, to give us a better idea of what the waitlist looks like.

oh sweet. Another thread to track about Harvard. And another vet (albeit foreign service) waiting for a spot.

This is the kicker, though, if you ask me. Are you USMC? Yes I am a combat vet, but I don't imagine we're being placed in the same category - and I mean that in deference to you (at least in terms of the amount of value it's likely to add to your application).

ETA: By that I mean, if they have some kind of a loose "quota" that they'd like to hit in terms of number of vets they'd like to bring into the class, I doubt I'd be competing against you and other vets for that pool. My guess is I'm put in a different category altogether.

So, I have shamelessly stolen the spreadsheet from last year:

2012 Harvard Waitlist Form

And, here are the results:

I just secured funding for a study in improving math and science in schools. Get off me.

Does anyone know when Harvard's first deposit is due? I'd expect some movement to start after that...

The first movement from the waitlist typically begins on the second week in May.

Checking in to complete the waitlist trifecta! Surely I must have a chance at getting one of HYS after being waitlisted at all three? Maybe not?

Ah well, I'll be riding it through the summer. Good luck everyone.

Were I a betting man, I'd put money on you getting in to at least one. My guess would be Harvard in the middle of May.
