Lol, we discussed this already.

But I actually feel that typing it out has made me realize which way I'm leaning.

I'd like a copy of that PM, too, as I would potentially be facing a similar situation with UVA! :)

Given that Stanford and Yale are out of the picture, Columbia, Chicago and Penn are the only schools I'd consider over Harvard, assuming there was a very large cost difference.

Do we know how long it would take to find out about aid IF we are admitted?

And sooo it's Monday, 2nd Monday of May when, according to the latest theory, JS2 will rain down on happy applicants!

So we've established JS2 often comes on Monday. Do they start around a certain time?

The ones I saw from last year were overwhelming during the afternoon/evening, even up until 7pm. Granted, they may have been in more of a rush last year since this was in early June.

We're talking EST, I presume? I'm a West Coaster, but by all means, let's speed up this process and go by Harvard time!

For both years (2010 & 2011) that we've used to come up with the 'Monday theory' first JS2 reports came in around ~1am next day my time, which translates to ~5pm EDT.

Considering Harvard's not using Need Access this year and will instead make us fill out some other complicated forms after admitting us, it could take a while.

Even as someone without a JS1, I'm hoping for JS2s to go out today because that means I can at least know that my chances of getting off the WL are much lower, and I can start looking for a place to live in Charlottesville.

It's better to hope for something than live for nothing.

I thought the need access forms were overly ambiguous anyway. I'm happy to flesh out my personal scenario in greater detail on a more complicated form if it means I get financial aid!

Today has like a 20% chance based on our theory, but that's for JS2s, not JS1s. They would need to open up more interview times if they were going to do more JS1 invites.

Lol, yeah. Everyone getting their hopes up because I basically said, "Hey look, there aren't any JS1s that Monday. Think that means JS2s?"

Lavitz wrote:Then there are slots available Tuesday through Friday next week. Nothing after that, and nothing on Monday, which could mean JS2s on Monday, that Monday's all booked, or that they're just taking a break.

Anyone have a JS1 scheduled for next Monday?

TLS is awesomely neurotic. I'm down for some js2's today.. but only if I'm in that wave.

Would you guys prefer NO Js2's today or a wave of Js2's but YOU aren't in it.. ?
