Hi I have been currently waitlisted by Harvard. I was just wondering whether there are any like me and how they assess the situation. I also have been told by a scholar at Harvard that they make an assessment per country not region.

You're wasting your time. The odds are long and offers (if at all there are one or two) will certainly be within the same diversity niche. You have a better chance winning the National Lottery.

Thanks for your response..have read these reqs. however, wanted to understand if a candidate, submitting two LORs, might be disadvantaged compared to those submitting three!!


If you don't think that a third reference will add to the your application, you can stick with two. I personally submitted 2 LORs, and have been made an offer for this year. Good luck!

Has anyone on the WL heard anything? I don't have much expectations, I know that all those admitted from my country accepted the offer. Needless to say, I would rise to heaven or sth if it turns from WL
