I was intrigued by the website's name "first reserve," so I tried typing in second reserve, and third reserve, both of which also exist (in slightly different colors)! There was no fourth reserve. What does this mean? Priority reserves, or does one have to get through the first to get to the second to get to the third?
i think here's what that means.
everyone being waitlisted right now goes into the "first reserve." sometime during the summer when some spots have opened up the adcomm meets and reevaluates all the waitlisted applicants. some are rejected, some are accepted, and some are re-waitlisted, which creates the "second reserve." some time later, maybe a month, round 2 happens, and some are released, some accepted, and some put on for round 3, "third reserve." which apparently is the last one. you'd receive an additional notification at each point that you are kept for a new/later reserve.
this isn't official - that's what i was able to gather/assume from the merrimackattack LSN profile kronk posted a couple pages back.
