Buckle up, buckaroos.

I can't think of a good Hamilton reference, but I, too, am into that musical.


Or tomorrow's ding wave 2.0, and we get JS2 Friday? I'm praying for tomorrow...let the dings end, Ms. Soban.


People have been saying that a JS2 wave at this time of year almost always follows a ding wave within 48 hours. Also, Friday seems kind of too close to the end of March wave. I would give 4:1 odds on tomorrow.

based off of the chatter in the thread, H admits have to proactively choose to join the group unlike admits at other schools. So the group isn't a very good proxy. I would be very surprised if less than half of the admits had been made.

I doubt everyone admitted joins the FB group. Apparently last years capped out at 600ish. I would assume a generous estimate of over half the offers have gone out

Not sure how the rumor started that there isn't a JS2 wave on the same day they do JS1s. My JS1 was on 2/22 which coincided with a JS2 wave. If I remember correctly, when I registered there were slots available after about 3PM (I did 5:40 PM so I didn't have to leave work early) and either the day before or day after had slots basically all day.

Pretty close. 369 including admins (5-10 of them I think). Last year and the year before had 682 and 795 total, respectively.

Thanks for this info.

I think it was just assumed because we figured they didn't have time to do calling and interviewing all in the same day. Seemed like a safe assumption to me, but this is good to know at least.

Regardless, please let it be tomorrow.

Guys, I heard somewhere that if the thread makes it to page 180 before the next JS2 wave HLS just admits everyone who posted in it and no one else

I think people are referring to JS1 Invites/JS2s happening on the same day. However, it looks like there were some concurrent ding/JS1/JS2 waves last year. Got about another 30 minutes until we find out for sure if today is one of those days.

Well, it's already a concurrent ding/JS1 wave. Whether it's going for the triple crown remains to be seen (seems unlikely).
