I believe that is a negative. I'm hoping that means a big tidal wave of them are on the way.

At least one post-hold JS1 has been given out, so it's definitely a possibility. Not sure how common that is, though.


Just finished my post-hold KB1 about two hours ago. Check in the Held @ Harvard thread back around Feb 15, I believe there was a small wave of post-hold JS1s.


I hope everything went well...then again, there's no way someone could be held twice, right?


Thanks for the well wishes. I felt like it went quite well. I was able to put forward a pretty accurate image of myself, my experiences/perspectives, and what I stand to add to an educational community. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. :)

Can I just say publicly that I'm in the 40 days and 40 nights post JS1 stage. I'm thinking of recording an album and calling it Radio Silence in commemoration.

Hmm, nvm about any post-hold JS1s in the H@H thread. Must have made that up. Anyway, good luck all. :)

We should come up with some superstition that triggers a JS wave.

Can it be assumed that if I have heard nothing (application complete 1/4), that I am headed for a ding or WL soon? I can't figure out if other people from my complete date have heard. Ah!

Edit: My stats aren't great, but I am URM.

FWIW, I'm an URM complete that same week and was notified for a JS1 on 1/29. (169, 3.6x)

What kind of #s are we talking here? I was initially held (complete mid Oct, held early Jan) and then offered JS1 early Feb, so a long wait doesn't necessarily mean no JS1. Hang in there.

I wouldn't give up. I was a December complete and only got the JS1 invite last week. Up until that point, I felt pretty much what I imagine you're feeling right now.

We saw 1 or 2 January completes in last week's hold fest, so if you weren't included in that, that could be a good (or bad?) sign. At least, I decided to take that as a good sign for me. God JS only knows.

thanks for the support everyone... I know it is a total long-shot as it is. 166/3.7, but I was kind of hoping for a miracle haha

I know how you feel, man. ;) Really, just hang in there. I know the waiting game is terrible and soul-destroying and cruel/unusual, but you do have a shot this cycle. It'll all play out soon enough, just relax and hope for the best!

Hang in there, guys. This wait is brutal. I can tell a Harvard-related story of me embarrassing myself if it will keep you entertained!
