YOU'RE NOT FROM HARVARD, STOP CALLING ME!!! :evil:


The Monday before Thanksgiving when we, well most of us, thought JS2s were coming, after waiting all day and nothing, my sister calls me at dinner, I get excited then notice it is her and get really mad as if she should know better not to call me while I'm waiting for a JS2 lol. I told her I'll call her back and quickly hung up, 5 seconds later my phone is ringing again. Assuming it is her, I'm about to answer and say "I'll call you back I said" then I notice it says "Harvard University System" on the caller ID... now I can answer calls from family again lol. Anyways, I thought it was a funny/ironic story!

Best of luck to those waiting for that call!


Should have just said that, show Harvard whose boss. You'll accept their congratulations when you're damn well ready, not when they feel like calling you :)

I'm starting to lose hope... I went complete according to their system 11/1 and got an email 11/7. How long should I hold out for a js1?

Ever since acceptances to various schools started coming out, and my interviews began, I have accomplished approximately zero things at work.

Edit: Fixed so it was in english

Today I have managed only to check the NYU ADW about a million times, after checking my status a million times, following every new post on every thread I follow on TLS, and listen to HELLA lot of X-mas music.

Has anyone heard of someone getting a JS1 and then getting straight out rejected, without hold or waitlist?

I wonder what someone with strong numbers has to do during the interview to get dinged or wait-listed on that basis (not that the interview was the ultimate factor in kazooie's case).

Wondering the same thing...details would help. It had to be something fairly uncommon.

I have refrained from neurotic posts today. But, the lack of JS2s being reporting is making me :cry:

kazooie says that he or she has a negative soft and maybe didn't have a good enough explanation for it in the interview? For the next month, I'm going to constantly come up with excuses for why that's not going to happen to me because I'm a special snowflake.
