My application was completed and verified June 27 and Harvard still has it as waiting for additional info. I know I have everything in and the fee paid. Anyone else in this boat?

This happened to me too! I emailed them about it and they updated my app to complete the same day.

Does anyone know how to submit an additional faculty recommendation letter? I received an email today that the only thing keeping my application from entering the review process is an additional recommendation letter.

Did anyone else's status just change from received/application complete to received/under review?
 
Hi everyone! Looks like the first interviews from last cycle were offered around 09/10. One more month!

Hey guys, I am interesting in applying to Harvard, but was looking to see if it would be worth the time considering my circumstances. I am from Georgia with a 3.91 sGPA 3.88 oGPA. I also have a 22AA with a 23 TS. I have lots of shadowing, performed a good amount of community service, and held many leadership positions. My main concern is my experience with community college. I obtained my degree from a 4 year university, but took roughly half of my courses at a community college during high school. I performed well during the time I was at this 2 year college, but did receive a B in my Biology 1 course. All of my pre-requisite courses where taken at the University I attended other than my Biology sequence and my English sequence. I'm super grateful for the opportunity that attending community college during high school afforded me because I was able to graduate with my Bachelors degree at 19, but I feel like this experience will not be look upon in a positive light at Harvard due to the stigmas of community college.

Sounds like this should be a WAMC thread

Hey guys! Does anyone know approximately how many applicants Harvard interviews per cycle?
 
Does anyone know the interview-acceptance rate?

Edit: I should say post-interview acceptance rate!

I've been looking around myself but I can't seem to find this information. I'll link it if I come across it though!

According to an excel sheet I came across on SDN (I believe it's based off of 2017's admissions cycle data):

Not sure how accurate this info is, since the source is not cited. After receiving an interview invite looks like the chances aren't too bad!!

Isnt class size 25 or so? So this is saying that they offered 49 people spots over the entire cycle, so basically half of the offers they made got turned down?

I think class size is 35 or so-- this is on their website:

Congrats to those that received interview invites today!! Is anyone else's AADSAS status still at "Received/Application Complete"? For reference, my application has been complete since early-July, but my status hasn't ever changed to Received/Under Review. Anyone else in the same boat?

Call them back! I’m sure it’s fine, congratulations!!
 
Just got an email confirming my interview, it is one-on-one conversational style with 2 separate adcoms. Informal student Q&A session on the Thursday of the week of your interview. They are booking interviews on Thursdays and Fridays from 11AM-4PM.

Supplemental questions are attached to the interview invite email.

Good luck everyone!

congratulation for HSDM interview invitation, may I ask two simple questions

1, Is the interview on site or remote?

2, I received the supplementary questions without interview invitation. Seems that you received the supplementary essays and the interview invitation at the same time, right?

Thank you and best wishes for you.

The interview is virtual. I received the supplementary essays with the email that confirmed my interview day & time.
