ack. sooooo they're a bit further along than perhaps we gave them credit for. i have no idea what to expect next week or if i should even be relieved for the time being since probably decisions will run the gamut.
anyway, i can't ruminate over this anymore today or im going to have an aneurysm.

Okay, so this is my first - and only? - post, but I've been lurking long enough to share my info with the forum.

WL today. Over both 75ths. JS1 in the autumn. Mediocre interview (I got too damn nervous). Unique softs.

I have some excellent options moving forward, so I've nothing to complain about, but neither am I dancing in the street! ;)

Best of luck to all who remain, and to those who plan to wait out the wait list. I shan't be joining you, as those excellent options will be demanding an answer soon.

It was early in March if that helps(?). Got waitlisted later afternoon yesterday.

I'm a little bit optimistic right now because I went complete in early December and only got my JS1 invite at the end of February, meaning they had plenty of time to review my file, ding me, etc. I still think I'm a likely WL, but given the fact we have an early March JS1 waitlist I can't help but be a little bit hopeful.

At the end of the day I'm just ready for whatever decision comes down the line. I never thought I'd still be in the game this late.

In previous cycles has anyone been admitted (not off the WL) AFTER the second accepted students weekend?

Time stamp says 3:51 am for me, which probably means it was an email from Friday.

I think that poster just posted really late last night (so technically early Saturday AM but probably referring to Friday).

Yep. It was Friday. I was up reading through this thread--this post came in the middle of the night.

Define "recent" :lol:

BTW, I was bummed to read of your waitlist :( Don't give up hope though; I think you very well may still get in.

Probably late Feb and early March, although they may want to get things over with and thus push out decisions for even later JS1s. Also prepare for a few more waitlists, although far fewer than there were on Friday.

Thanks for the condolences. I'm riding that WL and based on data from past cycles I'm optimistic that I'll get in. Maybe we'll get there through different routes, but I think we'll be Cambridge bound this year :D

Long time lurker here!

This is my first TLS post, but I was in the 11 am wait list group from yesterday so I figured I would contribute stats:

Above 75th LSAT
Below 25th GPA
K-JD, Non-URM
(Specific stats in profile)

Applied early October and had my JS1 the first week of November. It has been a long wait (and it appears that it will only get longer) but HLS is my dream school so I am sticking it out. In the mean time, I will probably be accepting my Butler at Columbia

Thanks to everyone who posts in this thread! It has been extremely helpful to me (and my high level of stress over the past six months)! I wish JS2s for all of you (and myself if JS has the time!)

What's the acceptance rate for waitlisted people? Any ways to increase the possibility of getting in?

Over the last three cycles, 26 percent of those on LSN who reported waitlists were accepted and WL data (both LSN and other) unsurprisingly suggests that the better your numbers the better your chances. You could send in a letter of continuing interest, but I don't think that will significantly increase your chances.
