It seems like every year the timeline and process have been different enough that we really can't predict much...which makes refreshing TLS even more necessary.


Yeah, congratulations to all the JS2s. Documenting your success ITT is much appreciated for us poor souls left behind (and for next year's crop).

God I wish it was a Friday so I could drink myself into a stupor.

Ahh why the pessimism?! There could easily be more calls tomorrow, or if we go by last year as a rough guide, in the next two weeks.

I told myself that I would withdraw if I didn't get the call this week. I just have to start planning and don't want the stress.

I got my phone call earlier today and the whole thing feels so surreal. Congratulations to everyone else who was admitted!

Have other accepted students gotten their confirmation email yet? I'm ready to see this in black and white (and crimson).

Went all the way down to Florida to present at a scientific conference and received the JS2 e-mail literally right before boarding the plane. I was flying 10 feet above the plane the whole time. Pre-waitlist JS1. I received an e-mail rather than a call because I was originally supposed to be abroad at this point in the month. Reverse splitter with very high GPA. Feel free to PM with specific questions. Good luck to those still waiting - it is still only May! and I was losing hope until earlier today too!

If we are mark’d to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.
God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more methinks would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
We would not die in that man’s company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.

Based on past years, are there really any pre-WL JS1s included in the next wave?

Same here! I'm just below both medians so I don't really think they need me for anything. I'm not counting on getting in. But I'll wait it out, as stressful as it is not to have a concrete plan for the fall.

I missed a call from JS today. She said she wanted to talk about my waitlist status. I left her a return voicemail within 5 minutes confirming that I'd like to remain on the waitlist and would accept Harvard's offer of admission if it were extended. I haven't heard back yet.

And now I've read the last few pages of this thread and don't know what to think...
