Does anybody know when the next round of JR2s are going to come out? My JR1 was yesterday, lasted about 6 minutes, and left me feeling anxious for an answer. I also felt like JR might have been playing Tetris during our phone call :(

I felt the same way, but I'm hoping it's because I'm a sure yes not a sure no? At least that's how I've cried myself to sleep the past two nights.

I seriously think that JR seeming completely distracted does not mean anything bad. He could not have sounded more disinterested or hurried during my JR1 and I am safely post-JR2. I think he's just making a bazillion phone calls a day. fingers crossed for all recent JR1s and others, odds are you're in great shape.

So he sounded unbiased did he? (Sorry, misuse of disinterested v. uninterested is a big pet peeve of mine.)

Maybe he was only unconsciously disinterested.

Technically, yes okay. But it certainly wasn't the meaning OP was going for. And you know that as well as I.

He probably gets bored and toys with people that he calls... If I were an adcom, I would have so much fun doing stuff like:

Yell out: "DANG, I missed, get back here you sucker" and then go "oh, yeah, what were u saying again?"

This is why I couldn't be an adcom. I'd be so drunk with power that I wouldn't be able to help but let my sadistic side slip out.

Edit until I hear back from HLS: ::Cough:: I mean, SolarWind, how disrespectful. I'm sure JR does his job with the upmost integrity.

I appreciate it, though, Crackberry. I'm spending so much time trying to perfect my Arabic speech and grammar that I started neglecting my English. Go figure.

My fingers are crossed with the rest of y'all.

quick question:
What's the next best thing to being given a JR1 promptly? Possibly not being rejected after longer UR? Does Harvard send out rejections on a regular basis, or do they hold off till the end?
Just wondering

Well, JR1s/JR2s are an either you get them or you don't kind of thing, so there's no next best thing to them. You have a chance of getting one as long as you haven't been rejected, of course, so keep the hope alive!

I think HLS is going to send out acceptances/rejections/wait lists when they've made a final decision rather than later in the cycle like they've done before.
