If you don't need to disclose it why would you disclose it?

Mostly because I read somewhere that you should always disclose everything

FWIW I have heard the "disclose everything" schtick quite a few times, and my perception has always been that you should always disclose something if you are at all unsure of whether the application requires disclosure. If you are 100% sure that it is not required to be disclosed then I believe that you should not disclose it.

Exactly. If you know you don't have to then there's no point in doing it. I have a wet and reckless that has been expunged. Some apps required I disclose it, some didn't. I'm certainly not going to gain anything from disclosing it where I don't have to.

Anyone have any indication as to how hurtful it is to be a KJD, assuming someone is a non-splitter with decent undergraduate work experience?

I wouldn't worry too much about it - as long as you can demonstrate solid WE/maturity you should be fine!

Applied today and was pleasantly surprised I was given a hidden fee waiver. I wonder if me applying last year has anything to do with it...

I was at an HLS event recently and the admission's office person indicated that they would begin coming out in early November this cycle.

Don't want to sound ignorant, but can you plz explain to me what JS1s mean? Does that mean interview? Thanks.

Unless they explicitly stated otherwise, they may have meant that the actual interviews would be starting in early November. Last year the first wave of interviews started on Nov 3, but the actual invites were sent on Oct 20. If the invites didn't come out until early November that would be fairly unusual, but who knows, last cycle's timing was also pretty weird so they could be pushing things back in general.

Going by last year's thread we may see JS1 invites go out tomorrow, right?

Theoretically yes. Last year they went out at 10-11am on Oct 20.

So is there just one big wave or do they come out gradually? I went complete 10/5--could I expect to hear back in the first wave?

The 2019 Harvard thread has a crapload of this info on the OP. I suggest checking it out.

(No, you won't necessarily hear in the first wave, and waves come frequently)

Pretzel is right, and I am unsure what the latest completion date was in the first wave last year (checking out last year's spreadsheet might give you some indication). I would venture a guess that your completion date doesn't preclude you from being first wave because last year I went complete on 10/1 and was in the first wave.

Furthermore, it should be noted that while JS1s on any given day generally come out around the same time, they are not all sent out at once, i.e. at exactly the same time. For instance, last year I saw posts on TLS about JS1s going out, checked my email, and hadn't received an invite. Thirty minutes later I got the email, so if you see people posting about JS1s but don't have one yet, don't count yourself out.

How many of the people who apply get interviewed?

And how many of the people interviewed get admitted?

Hehehe

There was a ton of discussion about this in last year's thread, but there was an almost equal amount of shitpoasting/cat pic spamming, so I will keep answering these Qs. For a while they interviewed about 1,000 and accepted a little over 900, so getting an interview was pretty much a formality toward acceptance. A few years back they said that they increased the # of interviews to 1,200 (still admitted the same # of applicants), so now it is less of a formality but still a very good sign (best guess is that approximately 75% of interviewees get accepted). There has been discussion over whether or not the # of interviews has continued to rise, but best guess and general consensus is that they still interview ~1,200 and accept ~900, giving a 75% acceptance rate if interviewed.

ETA: I was responsible for a solid chunk of last year's shitpoasting, so don't take my comments above to be condemnatory
