Crazy admissions cycle, maternity leaves, lower applications, late deadlines, etc.

Does H have a 2nd deposit deadline in mid-June?


Just curious does anyone know how many applicants H has historically pulled from the WL?

Been following multiple WL threads out of morbid curiosity. I'm seeing movement at Yale, Columbia, and now here.

Let's get crazy.

Congrats guys! Does HLS usually have a WL URM wave first? I wasn't sure. Is there hope for non-URMs still? Also JS is back....what a weird cycle.

...and does anyone know how long the "URM wave" typically lasts? A day? Two?

Of course Harvard picks the week I'm out of the country to start emailing. I'm paying 0.75 cents a minute for this!

Does anyone know what % of phone interviews off the waitlist lead to acceptances? Is it higher than from the general applicant pool?

Congrats to sharktank and fingers! Anyone got the answer to this? I remember seeing somewhere it was 100%... can anyone confirm?
