Probably have more luck posting that in the Harvard thread :-p


Well, I meant that as a relevant discussion to this! As HLS admits more people, presumably some spots will open here!

As it happens, seems like a JS2 wave started this afternoon. Here's hoping UofC goes next!

Pure speculation here, but it might have to do with transfer apps, too - I'm not sure what kind of timeline those are on, or whether they're done yet. I would imagine they'd hold off on decisions until second-semester grades are out.

Unfortunately none of the people on LSN who were accepted off Harvard's waitlist were committed to Chicago, but hopefully there were others!

Just wondering, is it possible to get $$ off the waitlist? Need or merit?

Last year it was.
All aid is merit, but they claim to take need into account.

I have my interview in 1.5 hours and the link in the email that says, Please read the following instructions before you interview, doesn't go anywhere.

What am I supposed to know!?!?

Now would be an excellent time to call them. Why did you not try to read this email before the day of the interview? Did they just send it to you?

Pretty much just:

-Look at the camera, not the video

-Test shit out first

If I remember correctly.

Today is the last day for interviews, right? Between this and the HLS wave from yesterday, anyone expecting anything to land next week?

Yea, last day.

I was looking at the transfer thread and it sounds like they're also interviewing this week. So: maybe?

Hopefully tomorrow or Tuesday (wishful thinking)? I mean they've been reviewing us the past two weeks. I like to think they have decisions ready and almost finalized. They just need to interview a couple more people today.

However, who knows. Maybe it'll be another week. or two....

This cycle has been unusually slow. Looking at old WL threads, many people were admitted in April and May already. We haven't heard of single confirmed WL -> Accept yet besides the one in this thread.

Maybe they really are over-enrolled as people think...

It had worked when I tried it a week previously, but the link no longer worked. We were supposed to get another email 24 hours prior, but I did not. They said the system was being glitchy in the interview.

With the second wave of JS2's hitting the Harvard wait list today, I'm gonna go ahead and speculate that Tuesday or Wednesday of next week is going to be when things start rolling here. Thoughts?

Oh snap. Anyone see on LSN if it pulled anyone off of Chicago? Also, when is next deadline for Chi students? That'd probably the best approximate.

Anyone has thoughts about whether they'll get to interview--wl students first or wl--interview students first?

Every time I see this thread updated I think it's news, like they've starting pulling people. I'm not saying stop posting: I like that little moment of hope.

In other news, I just put in a $1k housing deposit and it is a weird feeling to hope that I'm wasting money.

I'm starting to get the feeling that their class is full and this waitlist is dead.

No reason to interview if that was the case. If they didn't have spots, there's no need to do that. And if spots opened up, they could get people to interview on fairly short notice.

When do the Harvard WL->Acceptances have to formally withdraw from the school where they had previously deposited? I think we'll start seeing movement shortly after that date and I wouldn't worry about it until then.

Looks like the recent HLS WL->admit wave's deadline is June 14th. I do imagine a lot of people will accept/withdraw sooner, though. For us movement probably depends on how many/how fast/how over-enrolled they were. I'd be shocked if they don't plan at least a little bit for WL defections.
