    **As in previous years, please post ONLY stats in this thread.**

    We're going to keep this thread clean. Use this thread for discussion:
    http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/harvard-university/1112321-class-2015-harvard-admissions-decisions-discussion.html


    Lastly, if you've pledged to report your decision, please take time to do so. The accuracy of this year's statistics depends on it.
