So when have the most recent JS1s gone out? It seems like they're fairly up to speed with accepting recent interviewees.

Congrats to the new admits. I'm flattered for those hoping I would post a JS2, but alas it was not in the cards for today. While I would be so happy to get the call, at this point I'm not holding my breath. I am thankful for and excited about options thus far, and if HLS isn't meant to be, then that's just how it is.

For my fellow future WL/ding brothers and sisters, let's be proud of our successes even if Harvard isn't in the cards. They don't know what they're missing :)

I think there are still a number of opportunities for people like us to be accepted. Now that Feb scores are in and the JS2s seem to be up to date, I think the long-wait crew will see some positive action within the next couple of waves. Harvard also has one of the most favorable wait lists of the T14, though I know that isn't an option for some people.

I think LS has a good attitude because not having one's hopes up makes it easier if things don't go their way, but I think a number of us are still HLS bound! Stay strong ppl!

+1

I love your optimism (and LS22's realism, of course). Hopefully this isn't the only good news of the week.

Also, any speculation as to why there were Sunday night JS2s? That was definitely unexpected, maybe JS just wants to keep us on our toes 24/7.

Another wave without a JS2. Getting a little nervous.

Edit: selfishly forgot to congratulate the new admits! I think my jealousy got the better of me :lol:
