Seeing all these people with 175+ here makes me scared for the next cycle.

What Why Harvard essay? Did I forget to do something? Is this why I'm not getting in? :lol:

No. If I had received it, I would have immediately shared all the details with everyone. If adcomms are lurking, they already know who I am. The only reason I used that roundabout method was because I was asked not to share details.

I expect this means I'm not getting in. Oh well.


Ah, okay. :( Doesn't seem like there's enough info about these new calls to get an understanding of their import yet, though--or, more precisely, the import of not receiving one. Sooo... there's hope?

Maybe they are trying to secure those with higher numbers to maintain their medians before they decide how many peeps with lower numbers and strong softs they can afford to admit? If that's the case then those of us that fit the latter profile are probably going to have to wait a longer while... :cry:

Based on who received them and the questions they were asked, I don't think it looks too good for me, specifically. I guess that's still all I can say.

Did these mystery calls only go out to Pre-WL JS1ers? (On my phone, otherwise I'd cross reference the doc).

So those who didn't receive a call can give up hope right? Because ppl who get in get a jsb first right?

Not necessarily. It's a strange cycle. JS1bs used to be just for people who had their original JS1 before being WL'd. This time, they're also calling people they just interviewed. This may mean that they're calling all the people they plan to accept, or it may mean nothing.

With that said, it's 5PM and I haven't received one, so

Unless everyone who got these mysterious JS1bs is keeping them a secret, there's not enough here to account for the size the admit wave is probably going to be.

This is what I meant when I said it may mean nothing.
