According to Helix's post above, looks like after each wave it was a week or two between one-zies and two-zies. Someone could get it this week or next and throughout the summer.

Yep I also just got the reject email. For science: no JS1, 168/3.78.

Good luck, kiddies.

Oops, Harvard keeps surprising us this year! I was never expecting them to send out rejections so soon, I guess it's mostly (if not exclusively) for folks without JS1

It looks like this group has a June 14th deposit deadline. So if anyone decides to not attend, a few more people should be admitted shortly afterward.

I'm still alive for now. Apologies to everyone dinged. Wasn't expecting that so soon.

No JS1, but I'm still alive. Can't complain, but if I'm going to get a ding, I'd rather have it now then in September.

Any post JS1 rejections yet? Also, any speculation on when the next round of JS1bs will be?

Doesn't look like any of the dings had JS1s. I'm done speculating. This cycle is too different.

On JSB1s:
As per past year data, after the initial wave there were sporatic and limited notifications after. Lavitz said that the new wave's deposit deadline is June 14th. There should be some movement after that.

However! The Js1b's are new and they made SURE those offered admission would accept. I expect the number of people who were Waitlist -> Accepted -> Decline to be VERY low (to none).

It could be that they filled up all of the spots and everyone admitted would attend. Thus everyone still in Limbo (all of us) would wait all summer and not hear anyhing until August (to get a ding).

But! There's always hope Old Sport!

I think this is the case. It's been a great ride y'all!

Hit me up if you can make our soiree in NYC in August. Would love to meet all the faces behind the witty/funny/comforting avatars!

This cycle is getting stranger and stranger. Have any URMs had any movement since waitlists went out?

Well, it's been a fun ride but it looks like this is where I get off. Good luck everyone, and thanks for keeping me company.
