So it looks like they haven't made it to January JS1s yet? Or did I miss something?

Also, CONGRATS mermaid and paglababa!

Dont know exact dates but will look up when i get home.
Went complete the week before thanksgiving, JS1 the week before christmas, and JS2 today around 7pm EST

AND OMG I selected the totally awkward option on the poll above. So everyone who is still analyzing their JS1s, don't be too hard on your self.

Stats = 3.9+, 172

Damn, I don't check TLS for 3 hours and things blow up. Congrats to all the admits on a long battle well fought!

Edit: Holy cheeseburgers, congrats Mort! I've long enjoyed lurk-reading your messages.

JS1 = interview invitation
JS2 = acceptance call (or email for certain internationals)

Applying this late in the cycle will hurt your chances a bit, but not as much as it used to. I forget the name of the genius behind this blog but there's a great analysis of the issue here: http://admissionsbythenumbers.blogspot. ... esses.html

What are the odds that Jan JS1s are included in this JS2 wave? I haven't seen any yet, but I don't have any reason to believe that its not possible.

Check out the spreadsheet on the first page. Riverose in the spreadsheet had a JS1 on 1/7/2014 and was admitted on Tuesday. A few pages ago there was also a friend of a TLSer who had a Jan JS1 and was admitted today.

Early Jan JS1 are definitely included in this wave.

So my official fb status wasn't as good as it could have been:

"Hey mom. I'm slightly buzzed but i believe my voicemail just said I've been accepted to Harvard. BOOM. Harvard2017babyyyyyyyyyy"

I suppose that's good news, that means all of us JS1-ers are in play then. I had mine 1/15, so here's to hoping this wave hasn't hit the shore yet

My JS1 was over a month before yours, but I'm still optimistic that I'll be de facto held but get in without being waitlisted.
