    @collegemama321 I'm a current Harvard freshman and I know multiple people here that got off the waitlist, so there's definitely a chance. Congrats and good luck!

    @collegemama321 Very small chance. H waitlists many. Last year or the year before they took no one from waitlist because the yield was higher than expected. But don't be disappointed though.

    Welcome to Harvard! Member of the class of 22 here to say this place is AMAZING. I could not imagine being anywhere else. To everyone who did not get accepted, it is ok! No school defines you and you will find a college home. Sorry if this sound cliché, but I think sayings become cliché because they're probably wise. I hope you all feel free to message me or any other students to learn more about the wonderful place I call home.
