These numbers are scary high, but that makes me feel like y'all have an amazing shot at getting in off the WL.

Any March JS1s out there?

Also, what's the deal with all of these JS1s getting WL? I thought that Harvard usually went WL --> JS1 if you're lucky...?

Almost Numbers twin!!!

I got WLd last cycle too, and my score bumped up by less than 5 pts - I guess that's not good enough for H :( Now waiting for that WL :\ (Complete Late Feb)


Wait, you re-applied and you didn't submit until February?


Yeah we had a busy year at my job (Consulting) so I really didn't have time to prepare my apps, study for the LSAT and have my supervisors write my LoR. Took some office politics for them to finally write my LoRs :\

it's funny, i was just thinking how these numbers are so high that MY chance of getting in off the WL is slim.

March 7 JS1 here, but was earlier complete (Dec. 11), so I've been held before. Literally dying at my desk at work.

sorry my friend :(

Are you going to ride it out?


At least for a little while; I guess it can't hurt, right?

Man, all these high numbers.. :?

At least HLS' wait-list leaves you with a better chance than many.

Best of luck to everyone riding it out, as well as to those still waiting.

Not necessarily, I don't think. But probably not happening.

I wouldn't say out of the question, but I think Monday and not today is far more likely.

This would be my guess as well. But it certainly doesn't hurt to hope.
