Empty speculation - If this week ends without a JS1 wave, would that increase the odds for a JS2 wave next week? And vice versa, if we do get a JS1 wave. It looks like last cycle had just over a week between the JS1 wave (Thurs, Dec 7) and the first JS2 wave (Mon, Dec 18).
I was thinking the same thing.
To add a line of speculation, if JS1s do come out but are scheduled for the week of the 17th, then I think its for sure next week.
Hmm, smart thinking.

There was a question earlier about whether there will be a December wave. In a communication I had with the admissions office a few days ago they told me (without prompting) that they would start admitting applicants this month.

I am 95% sure there will be a wave in the next week because they unlocked the admitted students' portal and it's almost totally set up - it hasn't been available to me as a deferral til this week, and I've been checking because I was worried Admit Weekend would line up with a vacation I have scheduled over spring break, because it did last year.

Also, just FYI Admit Weekends are 3/29-30 (with Intersections, a diversity-based extension, the 28th) and 4/12-13 (with Intersections 4/11).

I can't tell you how much I appreciate you doing this!
It lessens the anxiousness, if just by a little bit.

No worries AT ALL. I always question whether it's worth it to post small updates because I don't want to increase nerves but then I remember how neurotic I was last year (like, 25 pages deep into TLS threads from 2014 hahaha) and go ahead and post.

The first JS2 waves for the last few years have been Monday (Dec 18 2017), Monday (Dec 19 2016), Tuesday (Dec 8 2015), and Monday (Dec 15 2014).

I'm not sure how to create a formal poll, but it would be fun to predict when the next JS2 wave will be. I guess you can quote this comment with your prediction.

A) Week of Dec 10
B) Week of Dec 17
C) They aren't accepting anyone this year - there will be no wave!

Gonna wait a few more hours and see if they do a JS1 wave, but tentatively A. Based on previous cycles, guessing Monday.
Jk, definitely C.

Hopefully, they increase the size of their first wave this year and admit more students!

I will say tentatively that it is likely. But, as mentioned previously, it may be really small.

I'm not emotionally prepared for a wave today. But if one does happen, good luck to everyone here - fingers crossed there's at least one of us in this early!

Unfortunately, it varies quite a bit, though I believe it's always started during typical business hours.

Personally, I think it's coming this week but I'm not sold on it coming today. My fingers are crossed for y'all though!

The admitted students' site still isn't totally set up - lots of things that should be links to something but aren't yet. That said, they usually take a while after calls to actually give new admits access and it's almost done, so it could still be today! Just doesn't seem likely.
