There are definitely people with our interview timeline who heard back. I think they're talking about it being too early for a rejection wave tho and I have no idea if that's right or wrong.[/quote]

Yes, I was 2/24 js1 and 3/1 interview and just js2[/quote]

Assuming you discussed this in your JS1, I'm sure that sealed the deal for you.

Why would they email instead of calling? Only if you request?

Are we pretty sure at this point that here are no more JS1 offers going out? Also, has Harvard started putting people on the wait list yet?

Is it for sure the responses are gonna be April 1? Since technically the website timeline says "late April"?
Just trying to hold on to my senseless JSnone hope over here.

Given that there are only 7 business days before April 1st, it seems unlikely that they would be sending more offers, since after the JS1 the application has to also go through faculty review. Then again if you went complete after 2/1 I think people said you aren't guaranteed a decision by 4/1 anyways, so maybe it doesn't matter? Take all this with a grain of salt since I'm completely clueless haha

Would anyone prioritize one of the two if straight admit at one and waitlisted at other (regardless of order)?

I think I would. I've been in at S for months and still waiting on H. In that time I've developed strong feelings for S.

Thanks. I think that's human nature. But do you get a better, more tangible "introductory experience" by being included in pre-waitlist recruiting? Is it relevant beyond the emotion?

You get alumni emails and such. You also get to mentally plan how life will be. All those little things make it a lot easier to just go for the more familiar choice. And depending on when you get acceptance to the second school, you may not get to attend asw.

Is it possible to get a JS2 even if there was a JS2 wave you were not a part of after you had your JS1?
