At what point have ding waves happened in recent years?

I believe they happened the last week of May. What with the previous rumor about a JS1 wave last week not panning out, but also no ding wave, I am just floating here utterly confused.

Also holding out hope for a JS1. Is anyone else putting off finding a lease at their current school in the mad hope of a Harvard admit?

Same...and thankfully, most August 1 rentals in NYC don't open up until early July, or so I've been told.

Most deals/good apartments open up late and get snatched up within a day or 2 on the market so just be super on top of it and youre fine. It's a cutthroat market.

Thanks for the advice! Do you think there's any point to reaching out to listings now and seeing if they're open to an August 1 lease? All the listings I can find are for immediate rental or July.

Any good reason to believe that another round of interviews is coming ?

Someone admitted in the last JS2 wave indicated that their interviewer implied there would be another wave of interviews. I have been holding this as fact but upon a re-read, it's more tenuous than I previously thought.

Ya I saw that too and thought it was a bit hopeful too

Is the absence of a rejection wave a good sign, or is the timeline somewhat in keeping with last year's?

I think it is a bit off based on what I have read. I think they had a late May rejection wave? Either way, I am not feeling very confident about my chances.

There are 2 open interview spots on 6/12. Not sure how many were there originally.

Is there any reason to think invites go out before slots open, though?

Humph, either way maybe this means the first ding wave will come later next week or something. To those still around, repeat after me: the outcome of this (beyond a certain point) fairly arbitrary process is not a referendum on your worth or capacity to succeed.

So really, you might as well all just drop off the WL because it doesn't matter anyway. Don't mind me, I'll just sit over here. :wink:

Longtime lurker here. that seems like a stretch, but it'd be easy to check. Just have to have someone log back in and see if there are more than 2 slots now.
