It might be in here somewhere, but:

Can somebody please explain what JS1 and JS2 are abbreviations for??

I can't quite figure it out. Thx! :mrgreen:

JS1 = Interview
JS2 = Acceptance phone call (email for most internationals)

For someone who ultimately gets accepted, what's the average wait time between JS1 and acceptance?

Are you saying that you're expecting rejections today or that you got rejected?

I had better not be on edge like this every day for the next three months... I hope we see some action soon, whatever the outcome is.

I'm going to start limiting myself to 1 check and 10 minutes/ 2 posts of TSL daily due to all the stress.

Unless of course there's a major change in my statuses, in which I'll relapse like crazy.

JS2 went out on 12/24. In terms of Js1 to Js2, I think the latest JS1 covered was 12/18, but only one or so. The next wave will probably include a variety of Dec js1 dates

On an unrelated note, how did everyone research "Why Harvard?" for the JS1? Is there a good resource, or should I just stick to their web page?

I just combed their website for a couple hours and really dug into the pages surrounding my specific focus area. That said, they never asked "Why Harvard," so I had to fold some of the "why" factors into my questions at the end :|
