Accordfing to the Harvard Admissions Office representative I just spoke with, no one has been called off the wait list. The committee is meeting on Monday, and the first round will be notified next week.
A word of wisdom, people lie big time. Last year, one of my child's classmate and in the top .5% in the school, said that she got accepted by Harvard, after getting deferred and rejected by Yale. Suddenly, a week before the May 1st deadline, she said that she decided she would take a gap year. As soon as I heard it, I stated that she was lying because she was from a Vietnamese family, very aggressive and will be totally out of character to "waste" a year. Guess what, come September, she is a freshman in Swarthmore.
Oh God... I didnt lie. Harvard doesnt always tell you the truth. I called yesterday and they said they were going to committee in a few weeks but according to the Crimson, they started reviewing yesterday. Believe what you will, but dont call me a liar just because youre misinformed
detoidi, nobody here argues that you are lying, but they are just questioning the veracity of your friend. People, students especially, make up a lot of things. Just look in this website threads where students have been caught in their own web of lies, just one recent where he said he got accepted by both H and S, whereas only S accepted him and now he was worried but could not say the truth.
