Same here!

The blog is so helpful¬†ūüėä

In the past years they also posted about the 3 categories of applicants (admitted - waitlisted - rejected) before writing on the name reading post!

It should be either 13 or 14 I guess!

That series started today! With the not-admitted post down, only waitlisted, admitted, and name reading posts remain. For sure, nothing will be released this week (mentioned in the blog), but I'm thinking it's possible that it could even be Tuesday (12th).

Anyway my bets are on Thursday 14. ūüôā

3 more posts (waitlisted, admitted, and name reading) and then Women's Day post on Friday. So 14th makes sense!

Nice! Glad we have this so calculated! Makes me feel a little less anxious.

Did anyone else's documents/messages tab disappear on MYFAID??? 

UPDATE: False alarm. I checked last year's thread. Doesn't seem to correlate with acceptances/rejections.

Nothing to see here, folks!

It's going as predicted, admitted and name reading posts should be coming tomorrow and day after respectively. So it's going to be 14th!!!! Compared to last few years, this time the HKS forum at Gradcafe is quiet.

Isn't the name reading post on the same day as the actual results? If so, shouldn't they be out 3/13?

Also, there may be less traffic here because of softer applicant numbers.

What do you mean by softer applicant numbers? Are there fewer applicants this year?

I think there are fewer posts because many of us read last year’s thread and so we know the timing and aren’t as anxious because we’re not playing as much of a guessing game - which is good!

Possible reason for why there is little activity on this topic this year compared to last.

So, I know in past years, the text above the Admissions and Financial Aid buttons on the portal disappeared. Mine is still there. Curious if it has disappeared for anyone?

May have been a bug. Mine remains unchanged.

Yes, I noticed that too! ūüėę

In the last years the discussion was more intense! 

I remember that 2/3 years ago even the HKS Head of the Admission Committee wrote a couple of posts in the forum!

Sorry, I missed mentioning one pending blog entry - "how applicants will learn of their decision/ acceptance deadline" - when I wrote my earlier post.

So that leaves at least three more blog posts - how applicants, admitted category, and name reading. Assuming no other blog posts from student life insight series or such, the last of these three blog posts should happen on 14th morning EST and the results released 15th post noon EST.

Time has never moved slower!

Last time the name reading post came on 14th and the decisions on 15th. Anyway, we shall get to know in next three days. All the best to all who applied.

Let's see if we get the "admitted category" or the "how applicants", today!

(I'm based in Asia and here it's already Tuesday)

Any chance of another blog entry today or do they strictly follow this one post a day schedule

It seems to be a strict one post-per-day rule. So if those in this forum are correct that would leave two more days for the admitted students & name reading posts and then decisions on Friday..

This wait is just so tough, especially as other schools are out now -- all I can dream about is HKS. Best of luck to all. Let's hope we hear this week!

Very tough indeed! ūüė쬆
