yes posthaste but you should should see if harvard will still reimburse you for april asw

eta: in all seriously, hwannabe, if you are for real, you should be withdrawing from schools you know you don't want to attend, to free up spots for people who genuinely want to go! it's the nice thing to do

Okay I answered my own question, it looks some JS1s were sent out mid April, but the JS1 to JS2 picture graph was broken on old thread. Here is to hoping.

I dont mind the wait.

Perusing last cycle on LSN, it appears there were two ding waves over spring break (including one reported waitlist if that's correct) and two JS2 waves the Monday and Friday following spring break.

Well, there was one reported ding on 3/18, then a wave on 3/22, the Friday ending spring break. So perhaps there was only one ding wave and the 3/18 was misreported.

Anyone else in a similar boat with this long of a wait with no mention of an interview yet? Is it possible to be waitlisted and then be offered a JS1?


Me. I've heard nothing since going complete mid October.


I am in the same situation and I'm not sure how to feel.

I've heard nothing at all for over 150 days since going complete. That seems like bad news - surely, if my app had any merit at all, I'd have at least gotten an interview by now, right?

On the other hand, I've watched many highly capable applicants with stats that are much better than mine get dinged. My stats aren't remarkable, even for a URM. Harvard was a bit of a hail mary for me, I kind of expected to get rejected. Yet I'm still here. Does that mean that my application has some merit in the eyes of HLS? I assumed it must, or they'd dispose of me already - why reject all of those great applicants and keep me around? I want to think that all this must mean something positive but, again, the silence tempers that optimism.

I really just want this to be over with, even if it ends with a ding. This wait is more torturous than the LSAT score wait. Much longer, much less predictable.

To clarify, these mid-April JS1's were pre-wait list?

For those applicants who submitted very close to the deadline (last week of February), can you let us know when you go complete?

Congrats on the JS1!

Side-note: Although I'm happy for the individuals receiving JS1's, my stomach sinks just a little every time I miss out on the wave.

Awesome, thanks! It will be intriguing to see what happens when the entire applicant pool is complete according to the HLS office.
