Maybe the OP was deferred from EA/ED? And this is the first phone call he got? Somehow that gives me a little hope, since I was thinking that if someone hasn't gotten a call yet, fergitaboutit...
Harvard doesn't have EA/ED.
Did Toby give you an email that he was going to call? Or did he just call you out of the blue? And I assume you never got an original phone call, correct? If so, this will truly break precedent - people who got plain deferred without a phone call, and THEN called afterwards, sheesh, talk about rocking the boat!! We don't have any theories for this situation - we're in uncharted waters people.
This is the most exciting news we've gotten in about a month, what a trip!!
