I declined as I'm headed to Stanford [I didn't respond to the initial waitlist e-mail, which I thought meant they wouldn't put my name on the list but apparently they did anyway].

Hoping this post doesn't come off as douchey, I just wanted to keep those of you still waiting updated on the fact there are still spots. I'm an AA URM. Good luck!


They're still trying to accept more people? :D What is going on at HLS?

I remain a proud member of the tiny, elite group of people in whom Harvard has shown absolutely no interest. :D

bromance, thanks for filling us all in on your situation! Sounds like its Harvard's loss that you didn't choose to go there. Best wishes at Stanford.

I don't even know what I'm still doing here. But I am glad to be one of the few, the proud, the forgotten.

I was just about to post a +1, then checked my e-mail and had my rejection. :( Oh well, finally I can move on.

Wow, I can't believe I'm still holding on. I thought I might get an email today, but nothing, and my application status online still reads
'Active on Waitlist'. My numbers aren't fantastic, so I'm not sure why they're keeping me around, but I guess I should be grateful!

Yeah. I checked my email for the first time today and saw that I too was rejected.

I'm not too upset. I mean all of us here are admitted into the some of the greatest schools in the world and will have the pleasure of working and learning alongside the leaders of tomorrow. With perspective, I'm happy my cycle is over.

For those of you still in limbo. Good luck!

Seems like Friday is their reject date? Condolences to everyone rejected but congrats on all the great places you're going!

I live to see another week on the waitlist. I really don't know why, though.

Thanks, to be honest, it would be a huge hassle to change all my plans from DC to Boston at this point, but I would totally do it.

The HLS wait list was so huge that new people were checking in even in August. Must be +200, possibly +300 people.

I'm still here too, but I sign my lease in a few days so it looks like the curtain is about to fall... it's been a good run!

Still here too. I think I'll be staying around until they reject me or accept me. Obviously I hope it'll be the latter.

I'm still hanging on, too. Though I'm signing a lease on Monday, so it's going to be a painful decision if I end up being let in (unlikely)

After 4 days I am finally done unpacking my apartment. I think the ride is over; I'm not doing that twice.


Yay for NYC! :)
