Since the OP predates the spreadsheets, posting the link here so everyone can go update their stats:

Harvard c/o 2020 Admissions Spreadsheet

For posterity! (And anxiety!)

I feel like I should have at least heard something from Harvard. Is this normal or are they waiting until the last second? Sorry, I'm just a bit antsy since the deadline for admissions is in a month

*Edit* I forgot to note that I'm an AA female. Do they treat URMs differently in terms of when either offers or waitlists/rejections normally go out?


1. Don't think URMs are treated differently. And by AA I'm assuming you mean African American (Asian Americans are not URMs, for the record).
2. I think it is normal. Law school admission is a somewhat unpredictable process. I have seen many people (a good portion of whom are URMs) who are superior to me in terms of the numbers but didn't even get an interview offer.


Can confirm this. In at CCN on down (most in first waves) and no JS1 from Harvard. :(


I'll cross my fingers for you to get a JS1 if you do the same for me *we're all in this together*. But seriously though, good luck!

Does it seem like they do JS1s and the next wave of JS2s from that pool? If there has been a JS2 wave since my JS1 - can I assume I've been passed over?

No, the last JS2 seemed to only include people who interviewed up to 2/3.

"No" to what? My interview was 2/2, would it be logical to assume that the next wave of JS2s will be only from 2/4 and on?

No. There were first-round waiters in the last wave. There are first, second, third, etc. round-waiters, outstanding.

No. There are always a bunch of people from as early as November/December in even the very last JS2 wave. If you've had a JS1, it's not even close to close to being over until April 1.

You asked 'can I assume I've been passed over' and the general answer to that is no since JS2 waves include people from the beginning of the cycle up until sometime before the wave. If you don't make one wave you can still get in in another.

EDIT: good luck! I interviewed around the same time as you.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I hope we'll both hear good news and soon.

I have interviewed on 2/7. Does anyone know if in the last wave of JS2 people from 2/7 were included

There's a 2/9 JS1 on the spreadsheet. That being said, there are a slew of earlier JS1s who haven't heard back.

It seems like (according to other users) only JS1s up until 2/3 were included in the last JS2 wave.

I saw 6 or so open tomorrow when I checked a while ago, all filled up now. 7 open Wednesday, all in the afternoon. 6 more open Thursday morning.

Speculate at will.

Could there be a JS2 wave *after* 4/1 consisting of people who went complete after 2/1? It would be unprecedented, but this cycle already is in many ways.

Anyone who's been following the saga from day 1 have any insight on standard timing for JS1 emails/notification? Aka can I leave my email alone for a while or nah...

JS2 wave Wednesday morning that's why there are no interviews scheduled. Exactly four weeks from the last one.
