It feels right, at least, given how dense the calls seemed to be today.
Still, I could endure being strung along until April if it meant going to Harvard.

Of course you aren't. much props, many well done.

This, btw, discredits the medians theory[/quote]

No, because 4.0+ is pretty rare. Also, there were another two admits with similar numbers today, just not on TLS.[/quote]


very rare, thats true. but by median theory i was referring to people's speculation that JS is only taking people above both medians at this point. that theory is disproved by this bloke with the auditory challenges^

Are JS1s generally sent out all at once or in a wave?

Last year there were a bunch of acceptances on 2/4 and 2/5 (Monday and Tuesday). :shock:

Then there were a bunch of rejections on 2/7 (Thursday).


At least now I can mark it down in my calendar.

Aren't "all at once" and "in a wave" the same thing? But I believe they're sent out any time, usually during the morning.

Do they only call definite admits or do they call wait lists as well?? I know this is the most absurd question in the world but I literally can't even wrap my head around this right now and feel like I definitely misheard her....


Lol can you imagine if they did that? That would be worse than Penn's "we'd like to offer you a spot...on our WAITLIST!" email. Pure cruelty.

Just picture the scenario. Phone call from the Cambridge area code. See it, minor freak out. Compose self and answer.
"Hi, it's Jessica Soban from Harvard calling you. Is this Selden?" OMG OMG play it cool buddy
"Oh hi, yeah this is Jessica. I mean Selden. Not Jessica. You're Jessica. Haha you know that though" You idiot what have you done
"Well, Selden, I'd like to congratulate you. I'm calling today to offer..." Brief pause, faint, come to
"...a spot on our waitlist." JUST BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW MY NAME?!?
