Yup I had it first week of January


Glad there's someone in the same boat with me. Good luck to all of us. We made our efforts. Now it's their turn to decide. So just keep yourself busy and let the decision come when it comes.




I had mine the first week of February. Is there anyone here that had one the same time as me and do you think we'll hear back in the next wave


I received my JS1 about 2 weeks after yours on 2/24. I am hopeful though. Aren't there only a few JS2 waves left?


I got my invite on 2/24 too. Last cycle is was 3/9-3/10 and then 3/28-3/29. I am hearing that it usually takes atleast a month from JS1 to JS2 so we will probably have to wait until the end of march wave. Also just out of curiosity who was your interviewer?

That's early enough that you might hear back in the next wave, but like everyone else you also have to accept that you might not hear back until the last one.

Hard to say. Was awhile back. Might have been Kelly McLaughlin

Dude, it's far from time to give up hope. Your chances have probably gone from like 75-25 to 50-50 or similar. Chin up.

I had a JS1 a few days ago and my interviewer said I would definitely hear back by April 1st, so there's that.

3 of those 8 were double waves, though, so if we define "wave" as "period of 48 hours or less in which JS2's are sent out," there were actually 5 last year, which means we're right on track and that there'll be two more (one soon, one at the end of march). I very much doubt that that there'll be five more waves this year, although the two might both be doubles (for a total of four, technically).

Will there be a wave tomorrow? Doesn't seem like it is starting today.

Any idea about the sizes of the wave? Well whatever

Any idea about how many accepts they have sent out? About 50%, 400-500?

No way of knowing. Maybe. Could also be sometime next week. Unlikely to be any later than next Friday, IMO, although of course anything's possible and I don't really know what I'm talking about.

Thanks, guys. It appears that only 360 people have been accepted into the Facebook group though (not sure on how many invited). Is this also on track from last year? If so, rumors of a "slow" cycle seem to be somewhat exaggerated, at least from HLS' perspective.


also not everybody does FB... so not sure how accurate that number is for a proxy of acceptances

Still, this is H and they do average about 1000 acceptances. Even with a generous proxy assessment we should still expect a few hundred more acceptances in the next 21 days

Also do WL come out in waves as well or is it one big dump at the end of March?

Don't give up hope! There was also a wave of rejections around feb 28 (if i remember correctly) and you weren't included in that!

This is the most inspirational thing I've read in weeks. I'm going to use it to convince myself that a large number of acceptances coming = great chances for me, so no need to stress.
