Just an FYI - at the end of my interview they said it would be a few weeks until a decision. I interviewed 1/23, so I would be very surprised to see a wave sooner than Valentine's Day.

I mean just because it could take a few weeks until YOU get a decision doesn't mean it won't be less than a few weeks for people who had interviewed earlier than you.

I meant the syntactical deconstruction, not holding out hope.

In hindsight, should have quoted only the part predicting a wave post 2/14. I agree, syntactical deconstruction is not yet appropriate.

If I had done that, I wouldn't have had the pleasure of engaging in this lovely conversation with you.

So, ignoring the sassiness that was that successive string of posts, if we look at how waves have come historically, then a few weeks post-interview would coincide with a late February wave. Since this year everything looks to have been shifted back some and there was only one 2-day wave in February, I'd say it's a pretty well-reasoned assumption on my part. (where is a *hairtoss* emoji when you need it)

Did you have a JS1, or just denied before interview? (sorry if it's too emotional to respond)

Sorry to hear that. When did you apply? And when did they email you? Harvard was always a super reach so I'm expecting a ding. This wait has been killing and I just need to know already.

I replied back in November. I only applied because they reached out to me with a fee waiver and then had BLSA email me as well. I even talked to a BLSA member on the phone. They emailed me right now and said to check my update on the status checker. When I clicked it, there was a letter.
