You are my absolute hero and I love you.

But I hate you for giving me hope.

Should I be freaking out now?? :cry: :cry: :cry:


No, lots of people got their JS2 two weeks after their JS1. It's still early for you. If in a couple weeks you still haven't heard anything then a hold is likely.

What's the general timeframe between JS1 and JS2 (if you're lucky enough to get one)?

There's this graph:

JS1 Date vs. JS2 Date 2011-2012 Cycle

--ImageRemoved--

I've been keeping this to myself, but I honestly can't quite make heads or tails of it. Maybe it will help you.

So many questions. JS are the initials of the Harvard dean of admissions, Jessica Soban. JS1 = invitation to interview/the interview itself, JS2 = the call telling you you're accepted.

About 1200 people will be interviewed and 850 will be accepted, implying a 70% chance of turning a JS1 into a JS2.

Generally if you don't get a JS2 within about three weeks of your JS1 you're en route to being held/waitlisted/dinged, but this might change once we get to April and the adcom is making final decisions (that is, people who had their JS1 months before might get a JS2 out of the blue).

You're JS0 right? I was only referring to the time between JS1 and JS2. I can tell you from personal experience that it's possible to get in after going months without a JS1 :)

That's okay, you still depressed me if you're looking to make sure someone is depressed after reading your stats.

Don't give up hope though!! My JS2 was 2 months after my JS1 and came completely out of the blue.

I'm a 1/22 complete and no JS1 today. But hopefully that means it won't be too long before we get ours? Hopefully?

(Love me, Harvard?)

Yeah, notta thing today over here. I have a hunch this means we're waiting until next Tuesday.

You make it sound like your numbers are a terrible atrocity, but they're not.

... that just made me really sad that you called 174/3.7 an atrocity. But very appropriate/fitting gif. In the saddest way possible.
