Any idea what is going on with this? There has to be a wave by at least Tuesday, no?

so this is all speculation but based on just general vibes, the first JS2 wave was huge compared to last year's December wave and I think took the place of the January wave. I wouldn't expect more JS2s until there are several rounds of JS1s. my bet is 2 rounds of JS1s this week since the app is closed and a JS2 in 2-3 weeks.

So maybe a couple more JS1 waves, and then a JS2 wave in a couple weeks from now

A couple weeks seems like a while. I wonder what the hold up is.

The fb group has 170 people admitted. And that includes deferrals. They usually get up near 800 in there. Just seems like there has to be some serious movement soon.

Anyone else who was interviewed early in the cycle but didn't receive a JS2 in December and is now freaking out that you're still JS2-less in February? :shock:

According to the Harvard Interview Calendar, there are interview slots for Monday, Feb 11 & Wednesday, Feb 13-Friday Feb 15th, but a nice gap on Tuesday, Feb 12th. Could this possibly be the next JS2 wave? I personally would have thought that the next wave would have been at the end of Feb so that they can interview more candidates and have a larger pool to select from. But this gap in the interview schedule is really interesting.

Yes, and a lot of people with strong stats that have already been interviewed got declined as well, unfortunately.

I received a book in the mail today from the admissions team. Has anyone else gotten one? I'm curious if they sent everyone the same book or if they sent people different ones. Mine is on a topic I'm interested in, but it's not directly tied to the type of law I mentioned on my application and in my interview that I'd like to practice.

(I was a December admit.)

Got a book. Related to my work and signed with a note. It was not the same as a previous posters' book. It's a very nice gesture.

Still concerned about to COA for Harvard, especially now that scholarship $$$$ are coming in from CCN, etc.

I received an invitation to interview last night! I can't even begin to describe the anxiety I felt when I was missing JS1 wave after wave since I submitted in September. I had even begun questioning whether HLS changed their usual policy on international students, as very few of them have reported JS1s/JS2s so far this cycle. So relieved now, and I am looking forward to the opportunity to talk to HLS admissions!

The January LSAT is a new thing this year. Maybe Harvard admissions is waiting until they have all the scores they're going to consider before they decide/release the next big wave of JS2s.
