So the guess is this week or next week? Does it take a full week for them to review the applications?

Probably next Tuesday for Round 2.

About whether Jan Js1s will be in next wave, anyone know if the wave of 18th included js1s the week of 5th dec?

Since we were discussing earlier how our interviews went, I went ahead and found some actual live camera footage of me trying to explain my job during my Harvard & Columbia interviews.

I went complete mid-November and have not been invited for interview yet. Seems like normally there’s a 30-40 day period from complete to interview... does this have any significance?

Like is Harvard focusing on securing their LSAT stats so that people below 173 can expect to hear back later? The lowest accepted LSAT score on LSN for this cycle so far is 173. I feel like my neuroticism is getting the best of me but it makes sense that better applicants are getting accepted earlier and people with lower stats will get their shot later.



I received a JS1 and am below the median LSAT. However, I believe I had good softs. Feel free to PM me to better gauge when you'll hear back.

I have a super high LSAT and haven't heard anything, so, shrug.

Is this common practice this early in the cycle?

I respect your suggestion but I'm honestly livid. Spent too much time on my application to be rejected in the first round.

Rejected as in really rejected, or rejected as in no JS1 yet? No salt, just curious.

Look, you're a GRE only applicant. It's impossible to say how they're looking at them. We have lots of data on LSAT applicants, none on GRE applicants. We simply don't know what they're doing. You risk coming off as neurotic sending something in this early. They know you want to go to HLS. It's fucking Harvard, everyone wants to go there. Telling them "hey I really want to go to your school" will change nothing.

No JS1 yet. No worries.


Relax friend! You will get into an excellent school! It will all be fine! Harvard is not the be-all end-all of human existence!
