Sorry Jasper. At least the WL generally offers decent chances of admission.

What time was the email marked?

That's so right. I keep trying to pick up a book, but I get halfway down the page and can't remember anything that I just read.


I swear my clock is moving backwards :lol:

3:16 PM. Will add to the original post.

These really are trickling now- like every 5-10 minutes or so.

Not sure.

After the equivalent wave last cycle, there was a much smaller group of WLs on the following Monday and Tuesday. There were straight acceptances on the 8th and 15th for more recent applicants and long-waiters. So it could go either way.......

-12th, 15th, 18th = a couple rejections on each day, but a small amount (more like a sprinkling than a wave)

-26th, 29th , 30th (and one on May 2nd) = ten+ rejections, a bit larger than the 12th-18th wave.

As well, the rejections seemed to be mainly later completes, ie feb, march, some January.

I wonder if I can take any solace in being in what, if last year is any indication, is close to the end of massive wave of WLs. I'm assuming not.

Seriously trying not to cry at work. I know people say to take this as a positive sign, but it just feels like a rejection to me. I'm a big planner who wanted to go ahead and try to find roommates, etc, so not having a ton of time to do that if I eventually get in worries me.

The uncertainty and inability to get things set sucks. But the WL at Harvard is usually fairly generous, and if you're willing to put in the wait there is a good chance you'll get in eventually.

I'm set on HLS, so I'm probably different, but I see it as a few tough months for something that will last a lifetime.
