Had my JS1 last week. Is there any significance to who actually interviews you? Is it a better sign, for example, is JS herself talks to you? And does Harvard still hold applications? Thanks

It says on their website that it's completely random (and my interviewer stressed that to me in the beginning as well). I believe you get your interviewer based on what slot you choose (aka they have already signed themselves up for certain days and times)

Question regarding likelihood of admission after JS1. So I've read a lot in this thread that approx 1200 people get JS1s, and of those, approx 900 get accepted (is this still correct?). Do the 900 who are accepted get accepted outright, or is that including those who are accepted after being placed on the WL? Conversely, are the three hundred who are interviewed but not accepted denied outright, or just placed on the WL? Anyone know?

Kind of along these lines:

If you get waitlisted without having had a JS1, are you less likely to be pulled off the waitlist than those who did receive a JS1? And if you get off the waitlist late in the cycle, say July, do you still have to go through a JS1 before admission?

I seem to recall reading that, at least last year, people offered a JS1 after being waitlisted actually had better odds of admission than those waitlistees who'd had a JS1 prior to being waitlisted...

Interesting.

Imagine being waitlisted until July, getting offered a JS1, and then getting rejected. Sounds like something that would happen to me

We just need more JS2 rounds for all the speculation and anxiety to stop

Everyone who's admitted must go through a JS1. If you're initially waitlisted without a JS1, you'll have to eventually receive a JS1 in order to get an admissions offer

There's been a lot of speculation re: whether they still send out 1200 JS1 invites. I wouldn't be surprised if they've increased the number a bit, but there's no data on this. You're right about there being ~900 admissions offers (class size ~550, yield rate ~60%).

The 1200 JS1 invites began in 2012, when they started skype interviewing instead of calling applicants. Before 2012, there were around 1000-12000 invites, so a JS1 signaled an even higher chance of admission (75-90%) than it does today (75% max). This has been confirmed through interviews w/ HLS admissions. I'd take anything else that you read re: the number of JS1 invites with a grain of salt.

Thanks for the replies everyone, but I don't think anyone understood my question.

What I'm asking is that specifically for the statistic that 900 people are accepted from the 1200 interviewed, is that including people accepted off the waitlist, or is the stat referring to 1200 people get JS1s initially (pre-WL) and then 900 of those 1200 are accepted (no WL) and the remaining 300 of those 1200 are rejected/waitlisted?

No problem. I was answering your first question re: 900/1200, but I have no idea about the rest. Good question though

From the way they have it worded it sounds like out of the total 1,200 interviews they offer 908 admissions total, however only around 500 actually accept and become the class of _____.

Yes, 900 includes WL -> Accepted. Idk how many are WL -> accepted, but they're included in that figure.

+1, submitted early October. :( Though I know my numbers are borderline at best so I assumed it would be a long wait.
