I wish schools would just have a deadline (like June 1 or something) where they finalized all acceptances so people aren't getting called in September. Why would H even need to accept those late people? I'm sure they would have a 500+ class already
That would be so great, just a strict deadline for a decision no matter what. I'm not sure why, but I would think they keep those later applicants in case their yield rates for some reason take a dip, or a safety net just in case.
Also, in case it wasn't clear - the example of my friend was not her experiences at HLS, but a different school. I'm not sure whether HLS even accepts people that late in the summer. A quick glance at LSN from last year shows the latest Waitlist->Accept was end of June. Although people were on the wait list but rejected in August.
If you look on LSN last year there were a couple late August/early Sept. decisions, and the year before that there were a lot of them, so it looks H does like to stretch it out.
Sorry if I'm depressing anyone lol
