I think holds are only for people who have heard literally nothing (ie no JS1s). Not sure what that means for people with a JS1 but no JS2 (a group that includes me now).

ETA: I should say "this wave of holds."

It's possible to be held after a JS1. But yeah, it looks like the first people who went KB1-->held last year were in the second wave of holds about two weeks after the first.

My hope is that they were implicitly holding you to this point -- when they've seen the December LSATs and interviewed another big batch of people -- and now they're ready to accept you in the next wave of JS2s :)

No hold, no rejection, no JS1. Applied 11/8, complete 11/18.

Thanks, that would be nice, but I'm not counting on it. I know TLS isn't representative, but I've seen a lot of strong candidates emerge after the December LSAT, and that should be enough to keep Harvard busy for a while before they would need to reconsider me.

Of course, I wouldn't object to a JS2 sometime soon anytime they want. :)

Applied two days earlier, otherwise +1. What does it meaaan...

Seems like they're going to do the same thing with the first holds / dings that they did with the first JS1s and JS2s: very little activity one day, followed by a large wave of activity soon afterward. I expect the real floodgates will open on Monday.


... I see.

In the same boat as a lot of people here - complete 10/16, no js1, no hold, no rejection (yet). Numbers in profile. Harvard have mercy on us and put us out of our misery...

Well, I'm not really early, but people with my dates have already gotten holds (but not rejections as far as I can tell), and I am late in the alphabet.

I don't understand, though, it's so easy to set up an email mail merge and send them out all at once from an excel spreadsheet. Takes a few seconds, why not just do them all at once?

"Holistic"? Who knows. Or it's tech-challenged people running the show.

Did KB also attend Harvard Law School (or law school in general)? I know JS did for both undergrad and ls, but I cant find the information on KB. Thx :)

I'm pretty sure I remember KB saying that she did not, in fact, attend HLS. Not sure about law school in general

Thanks. I usually consider myself a pretty adept googler, but KB has almost no online footprint of her education at all! All I have learned (outside of admissions stuff) is that she participated in an outdoor swim race a few years ago.

Now back to interview prep...

EDIT: I am a good googler after all!! Found it, finally. She did go to law school, just not at Harvard. Beautiful.

Random thing I've been thinking about for a long time: I'm pretty sure this is the reason she's not allowed to be Dean of Admissions.
