Hmm, it's already 1:30. I'm not sure how much we should be expecting today, but certainly a wave should be coming soon if prior years are any guide. It does feel like they are "behind" relative to prior years in terms of acceptances, but that could just be an illusion.


^I was one of the first to report my JS2 on a day that calls went out. JS called me just before 3pm EST so there still might be some activity today.

Good luck to everyone and congrats to those who received JS1's!


I would LOVE to eat my words on this one if JS calls and gives me the chance :D

Well if today was bad news it would have come out earlier so I'm guessing that if there's movement today it'll be good

Hi everyone. Submitted 12/28, 173/3.9. With my numbers (pretty much exactly median) how much of a negative effect will applying this late in the cycle have on my chances? Conventional wisdom at many other T-14's is not much considering declining applications, but this being Harvard I'd love to hear your opinions.
Oh, and thanks for all the info already posted here - you guys are great!

I wouldn't be too concerned at H either. They extended their application deadline and, as you said, declining application rates should help.

I can see why JS dislikes TLS. I don't think I'd like it if a bunch of internet strangers told me I'm behind on my work of doing them the favor of admitting them.

Not saying they're behind on their work, we're saying that the pace of decisions is slower than last year. This could be entirely intentional on their part, which wouldn't make them "behind on their work," just behind the pace of last year.

Welp, I'm definitely surprised by the lack of movement today (not at H specifically-I mean this generally).
