Doesn't want to take much longer than the two months between submission and decision probably. And no, no WL yet.

I can't recall anyone being waitlisted. Is this perhaps the equivalent of a WL this cycle?

It seems to be the precursor to a WL.. Maybe it just gives you one last chance to avoid the WL by submitting something great.

I don't think so. The Friday blog post said some holds will be moved to WL after that 6-8 weeks. So my guess is this is the "we can't WL you...yet..."

Well some of us have already been on hold for 6-8 weeks.

Past two months since submission here. I guess I should be preparing myself for the hold email, if not a rejection or WL.

Try 3 and a half months :D Young ones are so impatient these days.

Same. On the bright side, people who submitted after us have been rejected, so they've got to at least be giving us some serious consideration (grasping at straws here)

Or they lost your application :lol:

;)

But seriously, I think people who have been held or are waiting on Harvard are in much better shape than those held at other schools - Harvard has a new dean and he's probably running things quite conservatively. . .

yeah i agree and we should not look at the girl who got a jr1 last week as any indication they are moving on the "hold batch", she was a numbers juggernaunt (177/3.9) who i believe was mistakenly held from the start

Still no JR2, so we can continue being sad for ourselves. :P

HOWEVER, if you look back at last year's cycle, there was a large gap in acceptances between February 11 and March 3, and again between March 6 and 19. Then a whole slew of rejections (and a few acceptances) throughout the end of March.

So, assuming that the best course of action for a new guy like JR is to follow his predecessors, maybe the machine gun fun will begin in 3 weeks. :P

I like that term, "numbers juggernaut".

New week, new spurt of anxiety and confusion.

Why do I feel like I've been doing this for a year?

You guys have my respect being able to go through this for so long and still remain sane!

Hopefully after the gap or two weeks of silence that we see, we get a lot of apply notifications not machine gun fire of other notifications.

Btw sorry to hear about the hold karakot.
And adorable kitty benj!
