For example, I'm considering retaking the LSAT just for giggles. I want to see if I'll get a completely meaningless 180 :D

Hi all, long-time lurker here. My friend just told me that she got a JS1 request today, thought I'd let you lot know (sorry, I don't know her stats). I'm sure you wish this was coming from a more legitimate source, but it's all I have :D

Also remember that deposit deadline is first week in July. More might come if people decline before or right up to the deadline...

I assume after the deposit deadline it then comes down to last minute deferrals and people changing their minds, which apparently does happen at Harvard (and even Yale).

Congrats!

More KB1s? This is insane! Harvard is really pulling a lot from the WL this year. I wonder what's going on.

- some people who got in last week could have withdrawn already and they are filing spots ASAP

-This is the wave to fill the Yale withdrawal


-The fact that there are over a 100 dorms still available means that Harvard did not get to most of the class b4 the WL and just waitlisted everyone so that JS could review the files after her maternity leave OR their yield is bad this year

Yea, I'm really curious which one(s) of these are factoring in here.

Congrats on the interview invite!

Every time I tell myself to ignore this thread for my sanity I see something that gets my hopes back up. Do people think there will be any more KB/JS1's?

That awkward moment when you find out someone you really dislike got in from the waitlist, and you didn't.... Happened to me an hour ago.

Look on the bright side, not getting into Harvard means you won't have to deal with them! :D
