No, I actually called this morning because I haven't gotten an email and my status checker hasn't changed. I was told that if the status checker still says "Application Completed", then it's still being reviewed and a decision hasn't been rendered, yet. She said that when a decision is rendered, the status checker will be updated to reflect that.

Just got dinged via status checker. Guess it wasn't meant to be but it still stinks. Congrats on those who got in!

That's what I'm hoping, but it seems like in past years there weren't any acceptances after the one day of calls.

Feel like we might have been waitlisted. Figures, I was waitlisted as a 0L - getting strong dejavus right now.
I don't know if this is unique this year, because during the past few years the dings have all come out on the same day. Maybe they're trying something new this year? Fingers crossed, though not too optimistic.

When someone called earlier this week Harvard said that decisions would be out by Wednesday/Thursday so I'm hoping we will know sometime tonight but I also wouldn't be surprised if we don't hear anything.

Same I was waitlisted till the very end last year. Maybe they're just keeping us incase of the off chance that a few too many people decline for Y/S. But who knows whats up.

Hey, if any guys are starting to think about housing--

I just learned that I'm transferring out of HLS, so there's an open room in the apartment I was going to be living in. Location is in Somerville, 15 minute walk from your classes, near groceries and etc. 3 male roommates, all HLS 2L's and excellent people; rent of roughly $1k/mo (very very reasonable for Cambridge), place is quite nice and relatively large. Starts August 5th (in time for EIP!) Hit me up for further details if you think you'd be a good fit. Posting here because transfers are the folks most likely to have a need for housing this late in the game. Also happy to share general advice about HLS stuff.

Withdrew from Harvard, hope that frees up space for anyone still waiting. Best of luck everyone! We're all going to do amazing things regardless.
