So... I turned in all my materials for Harvard like... oh... maybe two months ago! And I *JUST* now get this email. Are other people getting this email around now, or have any of you gotten it like months ago and my application, for whatever reason, got backed up? Also... does anyone know when they start interviewing? thanks!

Good... that makes me feel better. And true... at least it's not a rejection letter!

everyone gets one i think - they are crazy slow - my theory is that they want everyone to be seasoned interviewers by the time they come (if they come) to boston. they have 4 mstp dates - 2 in dec, 2 in jan.

Well they hopefully have things under control, but I don't believe I ever got a "your app is complete" message...just the receipt when I paid for the secondary app.

In the next couple days perhaps a call to the office may be in order just to make sure...

I got the email today as well. But, I had called about 2-3 weeks ago, and they told me then that my application was complete. So I don't think that the email means that they are just now completing our applications, but rather they just now turned on the "E.A.R.S." system.

I got it too..........made my heart jump when I saw the subject. I'm sure they decided to send these out now when a lot of us are waiting to hear some interview/reject decisions, just to scare us a little. :p

My favorite part of the email was, of course, the completely contrived and unnecessary acronym: E. A. R. S.

They aren't the Department of Defense, so why the need for that kind of weirdness? What next? A. R. M. S. (Applicant Rejection to the Medical School)?

:laugh: I got that e-mail too. But the funny thing is that I got a short personal e-mail from one of the admissions office guys saying that my application was complete a few weeks ago. :rolleyes:

I got the email today too--I had all my stuff into them mid-August too, so I agree that they probably just revved the system up and sent out the first batch of emails.

They've already started interviewing. "Select applicants" received offers to interview between now and Oct. 31. The rest of the interview offers will start on Oct. 10 (3 weeks notice is their standard, so right after the "select" people), supposedly.
