Nice. Any other takers?

I recently received a PM from an admitted student urging me to visit and talk to current students. So if we do go, we need to find a way to do that.

Personally, I have to work the next two weeks so I would have to go during that last week of classes: April 22-26. Again, that's because the person who PM'd me suggested going before classes end because I guess that makes it easier to talk to the students.

That week could work for me as well (free all day Friday, all day Saturday, and Sunday morning).

does this benefit us (in the form of giving us better chances to get in) at all?

I'd be interested in a "waitlisted students day".

Checking-in, as well. Was also wait listed last Friday. Although, I see this information has already made its way into the spreadsheet... without my doing. Lol at the person who thought I was an AA male. But thanks to whoever did this!

Surprisingly, I'm very optimistic about all of this! Good luck to all!

I'm assuming you're referring to an email confirming the receipt of your LOCI? I totally haven't received that yet, and I emailed them on Friday a few hours after getting wait-listed. Agh.

I think they are referring to the email confirming our response to the WL email.

Did anyone else attach a LOCI to your waitlist email? They confirmed that they had received my email but made no mention of adding the LOCI to my file... I'm wondering if I should have waited to send it in separately.

This is what I was referring to. Considering I've only received two emails from HLS up to this point, seeing "Harvard - Wait List Offer" pop up on my phone this morning made me irrationally assume they were offering me a spot off of the wait list. :?

Currently researching the viability of visiting that weekend, will report back with results.

...In other words, I asked about it in the taking questions thread.

The visit itself probably won't. If you can talk about what a positive experience you had talking with current students, share some things you learned from them, etc. during a potential JS1 or JS1b, then I think that could only help.

Having not received a response, I'm starting to worry. I just responded to JS's email directly with my WL LOCI... maybe I should have sent it directly to the admissions office.

Chillax guys. They've got dozens of "yes I'd like to be on the wait list" emails to go through. They won't get to them all right away.

Man, this is way too thrilling / exciting / disturbing to not obsess about that! It might very well be the last communication from Harvard for some of the WLed people! :lol:

I'm still planning to visit Harvard. I don't buy the whole Harvard is Harvard thing so just go blindly if you get in. I have a friend who's a 2L so I'll probably just go up there sometime within the next two weeks and visit her, if she's not totally stressed out with finals that is.

Yeah, I don't care much for that attitude either. I'm still interested in going, but if it's a really bad time to meet current students, then it puts a damper on things.
