JS2 speculation + attempting to finish my 250 = absolute disaster.

Well, my excel sheet says 50.55 days but then there's Bom and then there's LS22. And then there's drawstring.

Technically you could be the first one to have a JS1, get waitlisted, and find out in august.

I don't think we've seen JS2's before 2pm EST, but they can go pretty late (7 or 8pm).

There are people who applied very early who are still waiting on JS2's. I interviewed at the beginning of January and have not heard anything since. I know there are others who interviewed back in October who are still waiting. A lot of us will probably end up on the waitlist or maybe a late round of rejections, but it is not unheard of for them to go back and accept people they previously passed over.

Really hoping for some good news today!!

Are your JS1s showing up under mailings? My latest update is still "Interview scheduled" and that is more than a month ago. So anxious!

I am so jazzed about the prospect of attending Harvard. The more I wait and think, the more excited I get :D Hoping for the best for everyone else on this thread as well.

Maybe I will return to a VM tar in honor of the movie.

2 weeks people! (Or, if you're like me, 13 days because you bought tickets to the Thursday night premier.)

They generally seem to start in the mid afternoon (3ish) and last until EOB, maybe a bit longer. I think there were a few calls as late as 7; but the waves generally haven't gone that late.

When was that lookback wave?


There were look back JS2s scattered through several waves. A few were on Feb 20th, a few were on March 1st (though these were non-traditional applicants or URMS), a few were on March 25th/29th, and there were several from April 5th to 15th, but this also included wait listed applicants. From there a number of people got off the wait list on May 22nd and 24th, and then a smaller group got off at multiple points in June.

Aside from the WL action, there wasn't really a concentrated look back wave; more like a few people here and there.

A depressing analysis.

I have a custom-gif that I made just for today. If JS wants to see it, she'll have to deliver!
