I found today, almost eight months after i sent my application in, that i'm on harvard's waitlist.

I think i'm going to stay on it, and in the meantime, i'm headed to Columbia

I'm staying on it, too. And I found out Tuesday. Sigh, I wanted closure.

What are you guys sending in to help your chances?

Sorry/Congratulations

I expect to get my waitlist or rejection (after 8 months as well) this week.  Where do you  two live out of curiosity?

Got my HLS waitlist today via snail-mail.  Letter dated 5/2.

originally deferred about a month ago, got the waitlist today too. 
staying on the waitlist till end of august, but i don't expect much will come from it.  anyone know the general percentage of waitlisters that get off the waitlist?  the letter didn't offer much in the way of useful information.

My mailbox is empty too. They told me a decision had been made and a letter will be sent on 5/2, now we are at week's end and nothing. I found out I was on the Stanford waitlist after HLS made a decision and I received their letter yesterday and I am outside of Philly. what the heck Harvarrrd!?!?!?! ::)
