Congrats! Looks like someone has a difficult decision ahead (H or S). You leaning anywhere?

I will more than likely go to Stanford. It is such a huge honor to be accepted at Harvard though. I am shocked and thrilled.

WL-->JS1-->rejected. What are the chances of this scenario? any thoughts?

Did that actually happen to you or are you just asking hypothetically?

Congratulations! If you're attending Stanford, you should promptly let HLS know, I'm sure that they would appreciate it! I'm just looking out for them. :lol:

Last year I think 3 out of 21 JS1s did not get a JS2. But who knows what's in store this year. Don't ruminate over it.

Congrats! This probably means that a second (mini)wave is now over. I don't think there will be a third one anytime soon :D

Yeah, there will be. It's called the rejection wave. :wink:

I remember doorkeeper saying that recent admits had to let Harvard know that they would attends sometime in July. So you never know...

Is the top law school deposit list real and, if it is, when is it circulated? Possible that Harvard looks at it when making waitlist decisions?

I realize I'm asking this after 1212 was just admitted, but would they be more likely to accept someone that has deposited outside of YS?

Yes, it's early July. If people decline, like one already has and other may decide to, I think a few more JS1s might trickle out.

Except new JS1s already did trickle out, and we have a few new admits :) (who are, by definition, anyone but me and Elendil :D)

The people who got in today appear to have gotten their JS1 emails a few days ago. You're good.

But Harvard students have so many great opportunities that Stanford students don't! I mean, when's the last time a Stanford alum was appointed to the Supreme Court? 1981. A Harvard alum? 2010. And Palo Alto is so far away from stuff, and...

Yeah, I'm on the waitlist at Stanford. Don't hate.

I'm also on the waitlist... Not that I have big expectations, but thought I should tell you and Elendil that you're not alone :D
