For past JS1-ers, did you receive an email that stated, "Admissions must confirm your request"? Just wondering and freaking out.

Thanks!

Yep. Totally normal, expect the confirmation the day after you pick your appointment.
ETA the most important part: congrats :)

Congratulations!! What time did you get it? Does this mean that JS is not interviewing today?

So jealous...

STILL patiently waiting to go complete. Hopefully this week so that if there are any JS1 slots next week I have a shot at at least getting an invite. I hope...

If you look at this coming week's schedule for interviews, there are slots each day. However, there are two different "HLS Interviewer"s you can select. I assume one is KB and the other JS. According to the schedule, one is interviewing M-Th (but not Friday), and the other is only interviewing on Wednesday and Friday, but is M, T, and Th free. Think this could mean we may be seeing a small trickle of JS1s and/or JS2s throughout the week since M, T, Th, and F each only have one person interviewing, with the other free.

If we agree with this....JS is free today,tomorrow, and Thursday. Considering that JS1's are going out today. We can hope that JS2's come out tomorrow?!

Quick question: is there a skype name we should send a request too before the interview or do they send it to me? If they send it, about how many minutes before the scheduled time do they send it?

Thanks

I think we're at the "any day now" stage. Those of us who interviewed last Tuesday are at 6 days -- clearly in the precedent "kill zone" for a JS2. I don't think it will be long before a wave goes out. I just hope I'm in it. And you too. And all of you JS1 vets out there. And especially Lavitz.

You don't have to do anything other than be on Skype from around 5 minutes before your interview time. Also, my interview was at 1pm and they sent the request at 4am the night before (according to Skype, but this seems dubious). Good luck! Now all you need to do is relax and get ready to have an enjoyable conversation. Prepare but don't stress. It seems like that's the key.

Does your online status change anytime after they confirm the interview / after you're invited? Just wondering.

There will be an entry in the mailings section, but the status itself doesn't change.

Knowing this still hasn't prevented me from incessantly logging on after my JS1 with the hope that some tiny pixel will change and give me some clue one way or the other. You can all laugh at me if you like, but I know damn well many of you are doing the same thing.

I hope this story will bring a chuckle to everyone else who is checking their emails incessantly. Apparently while I was looking at my old email that said my application was complete I accidentally hit the mark as unread button... so then I got a notification a few momens later that I had one new email FROM HARVARD!!!!!! My heart stopped beating. Then realized.....it was from November.... jeez, this excitement is too much.

If this thread took place around a campfire, with all of us roasting marshmallows in the middle of the woods, this would be the perfect horror story. Half the people here (myself definitely included) would probably scream bloody murder for hours and have nightmares for weeks to come.

And just like a good horror narrative, we're all going completely mad ... one by one.

Just got an invite to interview... my mind is BLOWN because I am below both 25% and not a URM but I am certainly not complaining!

Sorry for omitting initially. . . too excited.

First week of November. Other details of my application are too weird to draw any conclusions from, but suffice to say I'm neither auto-admit nor auto-deny.
