Here comes the Harvard Waitlist.

Here comes the Harvard Waitlist.

Just received the email two hours ago. I am waitlisted everywhere....Hope HLS admits more off their waitlist than Yale does.  By the way, is it true that we should send in LOCI after waitlisted on a monthly basis? Any advice please?

Yes, monthly so the school knows you're still interested.  And Harvard generally does take many more off the waitlist than Yale.

I would love to just get on the waitlist.  Patiently waiting for a final answer.

Thanks Max! Then I guess that's what I'll do for Harvard.  However, what should we write in these letters? Keep saying "OH!I wanna get in I wanna get in?"... Like that?
By the way, does anybody know that normally how many people are on Harvard's waitlist?
Anybody got waitlisted in the past few days too?

Freelover (or anyone else with similar situation),

When did you have your phone interview? I'm curious what the turn-around time is. I'm assuming that I didn't get in because I didn't get a phone call last Friday or Monday (per the blog below). I just really wish I knew my status just so I could make my decision knowing all of my exact options.

I can't believe it has taken so long to hear back. I feel like I applied too late. I have good numbers (175/3.82) so I'm thinking applying in mid-January must have hurt me...Oh well!

It appears we had room for a few more folks before going to the waitlist. I’m making some calls to admit today and maybe Monday. Everyone else should receive a waitlist or deny notice soon."

I was waitlisted too. Wish I had applied earlier.

Just got an interview email too! I'm so excited right now, especially since this will be SECOND talk with Toby (1st interview in December, Deferred, WLed, and now 2nd interview)
