Why hasn't Harvard sent me anything?

I've signed up on their mailing list twice since last year and have not yet received a viewbook or application. (I know they're available online)

    It's nothing personal. Sometimes people just get overlooked. I was on the mailing list for Duke (several times), but I never did get a applicaton/viewbook, so I just applied online. Also, maybe Harvard hasn't mailed their applications yet, but I doubt it because most colleges send them out in early September.

    They certainly did not decide without knowing you that they did not want your application. 22000 applications last year, and surely many more inquiries, some things get lost. Don't worry about it. Apply online anyway, it is easier, faster, more reliable, and cheaper.

    "viewbook" It's Harvard, if you get in, you are going there. What more do you need to know?
