You'd probably still get some sort of email attempting to schedule an interview. You'd probably have to make special arrangements, but I don't think this would affect your JR1 email.


Thanks! Yeah...given the amount of time under review I'm sure I'm out.

You'd be surprised... There were several people with early Nov./earlier submit dates in the last JR1 batch.

Spent Christmas afternoon looking at the amazing e-binder. I hadn't thought much about HLS for a while, especially with the more recent SLS acceptance. Now I'm falling in love with Harvard all over again. :D

The only major factor holding me back at this point is the Boston weather. But three years of East Coast frigidity doesn't sound too bad if I'm returning to California (hopefully LA) at the end of them. I've heard that HLS slightly edges SLS for reputation in southern California, but feel free to correct me if you think otherwise.

I'm from the west coast and went to Boston for UG. I won't pretend it was anything less than horrible the first winter, but I was used to it by the second and the third and fourth were really not a big deal. (However, my friends would all tell you that I continued to complain every cold day for four years and I immediately moved to the Bay Area where I had a T-shirt on outside on Christmas day so, you know, there's that too.) Just one perspective.

...yeesh. :oops: Seattle really is a lot more like the Bay Area weather wise than most people think though. I swear! I've also lived in California, but I did grow up mostly in Seattle. Take me as however relevant a source as you like.

Just kidding. My own clairvoyance shocks me, however. It's a pity that I can't be equally clairvoyant about my two possible options for the next three years. :lol:

Anyone is relevant; thanks for the input.

Actually, I take it as a huge compliment that someone can guess I'm from Seattle.

Also, go to bed.

I was just poking around the admitted students site and the information there says they start on Friday, so 6-8 and 10-12, even though the packet we got in the mail says the above.

So does anyone know if HLS offers any reimbursement of travel costs in order to attend the ASW? Or do we have to pay for flights, etc. out of out own pocket?

They'll give you a travel subsidy that varies depending on distance travelled. You can sign up for one on the admitted students site.

I haven't even been told how to login to the admitted students website yet... :(

Is there an acceptance packet?

I'm in the same boat. It hasn't worked for me at all. But... it doesn't really matter because you know that at some point it will start working again, and you will get the admissions packet in the mail, and there is no need in stressing out about it in the meantime.

Also, is anybody else here contemplating/decided on deferring acceptance for a year?

+1. I'm looking at a couple of options but I'm not really sure, so I'm interested in what people who are deferring have decided to do.
