CONGRATS!!!

Just shoot them an email. Unless it's an Olympic Gold Medal... they like those in the mail.

But I do see that Harvard has accepted a few folks with my stats in the past :?


Each cycle they give out JS1s to people on the waitlist. JS also said in a blog post that many held applicants eventually get accepted.

In the past, some people have been offered JS1s off the WL. You survived the first wave of dings, so you're still in the running for a JS1 :)

I hope this is the case if I get dinged this year!


The things I would do to get a hold of Harvard's database of applicants...

We could see what the acceptance rate for re-applicants is, the number of people declined above medians, medians for different undergrads. And this would be full data too, not self-selected or unverifiable.

It's weird but I'm getting excited just thinking about the possibilities.

Thanks everyone for the input. I actually didn't know about the blog and that is helpful! I sent in updates last week and got a very warm response in comparison to other schools. I am glad they care!


How long did it take for them to respond? As someone who just submitted updates...

edit: jk. they just responded. Way to be quick, Harvard!

Nope. Friday was a big day though, with JS1s, JS2s, and rejections.

2 1/2 months for me. Trying to stay positive since I really didn't think I'd snag a JS1. If I get in, awesome. If not, I'll be alright.
