    Just wanting to concur with everything others have said above. It has truly been a joy and honor to be on this journey with you all these last few months (and in a few cases like me, even longer than a few months). Whatever happens, whatever decisions are made by HGSE, by other schools, and by us individually, I have great faith in us individually and collectively. I eagerly look forward to seeing all that we can and will accomplish!

    I agree with the sentiments expressed above.  I am heartened by the display of camaraderie, support and humor I've seen displayed here over the past several months.  I truly wish you all the best of luck.  It's been so comforting to have each of you to wait and hope with.  Here's to all of you.  Cheers!

    No matter I hear back from HGSE in the next couple hours or not, no matter I get in or not. I just want to say that I am very thankful for everyone who has talked and supported each other on this forum during this anxious time. Rubbing the shoe, calling the admission office, and everything else makes me know that there are people going through this process with me and they all make me smile! Thank you so much everyone and the best of luck!!!
    I applied to the HDE program with the language and literacy concentration because I want to do something to help international students or immigrants to adjust and do well in educational settings like college. I am a current undergrad majoring in psychology and linguistics, GPA 3.8, no working experience, some non-profit volunteering and leadership with education. 
    Accepted: UPenn, UMich, Vanderbilt, IU, UW Seattle
    Rejected: University of Wisconsin - Madison
    Harvard has been a dream of me since I was a child. I hope this dream comes true, but if it does not, it's okay!
    Best luck to you all!!!!

    An internal source has told me HGSE decisions will sent this week! My source guesses the email will be sent out at midnight. Good luck everyone!!!

    Anyone wake up today full well knowing it wouldn’t change over the weekend, but yet still find yourself checking the portal and this thread for any signs of an update? 🤣 
    Totally get that most schools have record number of applicants and the process is taking longer, but it is still hard to have had yesterday’s date in mind for so long and see it pass by- but hey, as we know there are far worse things in the world! 
    For various reasons, HGSE is the only school I applied to but I feel for those of you juggling other decisions/interviews and weighing long distance moves, etc. Hang in there everyone!!!

    I went down a rabbit hole and saw that the admission decision for the incoming batches of 2011 and 2012 were posted on a Tuesday. Any hope for us to hear back on the 9th as well??

    Anybody else obsessively checking the portal even though the results definitely won’t be out for a couple more hours, and most likely even a whole week?

    Ahhhh is today the day?! Who knows. All I will say is that regardless if we hear today or not, and regardless if (when we do) we get the answer we are each hoping for or not, this does not make or break us. Each of us were drawn to apply out of a hope and desire to make this world a better place, and that doesn’t change with an email today- it only changes the path we might take to do so. For some of us, HGSE might be a part of that journey. For some of us, we might learn HGSE is not our next step but discover a completely different path we had not previously imagined for ourselves, and that is okay too. Don’t lose sight of your goals and passion, and don’t forget that any program- HGSE or otherwise- is only a small piece of the story, even though it seems so all encompassing to each of us at the moment. Be proud of the work you put into this process and taking the step to apply, and trust that you alone will define your next chapter in your story, not this decision. Go out and keep changing the world no matter what lands in your inbox today (or next week, or month end). Deep breaths and best of luck to  all!!!
