I wonder if they're still in the office or if this is an automated system that can't handle pushing too many e-mails at once.

why would this automated system only operate during normal business hours?


Good point, although they were getting sent until about 7 last night...maybe it's semi-automated and requires only the oversight of one or two people?

there's a point at which speculation becomes ridiculous and we are certainly past it now.

Very fair point. Back to some (slightly) more reasonable speculation, in response to Core:
I'm not arguing that there is a whole slew of acceptances remaining, but I think that there may be some outright acceptance here or there. The above JR1s might be people who they're heavily considering accepting, or they might have a cache of on-deck applicants to fill slots for pre-deadline withdrawals.

WLed. Held in Jan. No JR1. Email at 11:11am PST. Status checker updated with today's date and "Waitlist Offered." Kind of relieved that it's not a rejection.

If you pay your seat deposit at another school, can you still ethically stay on other waitlists? Is this allowed? Then I guess you just lose your money if you end up getting in at your dream school?

(Sorry re-posting since my post seem to get lost in the mass of posts just coming in :) )

Agreed. I would bet that's an acceptance.

I agree. The only issue is that I know at least a few people got JR2s this past week and some of them had JR1s this week or the week before.
Out of curiousity, what other schools are you considering?

Stanford, if they let me in off the WL (although they claim not to consider Feb. scores the same cycle). I had a great retake that came in February, and I have some decent options for a year off, so if H or S don't pan out this cycle I would be inclined to reapply. Right now, my hopes are completely with HLS (and they're my first choice, so I would definitely go there regardless of whether SLS offers me a spot).

But i have not been wait listed and I feel that my package was strong so I am optimistic!


I wonder if they have a quota for people with Tourette Syndrome. Waitlisted this morning, blehhhhh. I'll still take them over Northwestern if they let me in. There go my chances of a deferred Harvard admission though. :(

Gotcha. Would you reapply this fall or the following fall - just wondering? Would they really view you more favorably if you reapplied this fall and had maybe 3 months work experience by that point? Oh man, I'm afraid to check my mailbox lol.

wow, looks like i missed quite a party. probably a good thing i didn't know this was going on, or else it would've made checking my email the past couple days a lot scarier. anyway, still standing, for now. wonder how much more WL action is still on the way.

This fall most likely. I know that the 3 months more WE wouldn't help much, but it would be WE that I would continue throughout the year. Also, I think that having a near-perfect LSAT with my app in September as opposed to February would make a difference. I'm trying not to think too much about that now though- as much of a pessimist as I can be, I think I have reason to be optimistic with my recent JR1 (even though one of my answers probably sounded dumb in hindsight).
