I think people are keeping their JR1s under wraps until they get a JR2 at this point.
really? why? i think hls is still big enough that anonymity is preserved. unless they think there's shame in being a jr1-no-jr2?
Now that jr1s are pretty rare it would be very easy for an adcomm from HLS to notice who said they got a JR1 and compare it to post history to figure out who that person is. Unlike in the past when huge batches went out and it would be really hard to tell who was who. In addition to that, it would be even easier for them to tell who was held then JR1.
Given it appears they have an overabundance of qualified applications they are looking for reasons to WL or reject applicants more than they are looking for reasons to accept... For some their post history may give them a reason to WL or reject. Thus people are more inclinded to keep the information private now then in the past..
Sorry, but this sounds absurd.
