My impression is that the JS2's coming out today are V-Day mercy calls for people who were held or haven't heard in over a month. I think we'll probably hear Tuesday if we hear anytime soon.


I had JS1 on 1/30.. Here's to hoping you're right!


You have close to auto-admit #s for a URM, it's just a matter of time. Unless you've got some bad C&F or told JS/KB she smells via Skype.

Music to my ears. Congrats!

~70% who get a JS1 get a JS2. This percentage increases for URMs I believe.


Good luck everyone! PM me if you want to hear about my interview.

I heard is ~90% for URMs. Good luck everyone! PM me if you want to hear about my interview.


Wait, what is your source for it being ~90% for URMs?

A few of us went back to prior cycle URM threads and it seemed like damn near every URM with an interview was eventually accepted. But Harvard upped its # of interviews this cycle so that precedent isn't very useful anymore. We'll see what the % is once the cycle is over.

Oh damn! Well here's to hoping that it continues to be the case for all of those URM's who have had and or will have their JS1's this cycle!

The % is still bound to be higher than whatever the non-URM one is because of
how few qualified URMs there are during any given cycle.

Anyway, best of luck to everyone. Keep kicking ass.

Just came back from a V-Day dinner and missed a bunch of movement here in this thread! There are a lot of people to congratulate, so I am just going to say congratulations to all on acceptances, JS1s, and JS2s. :D

Also, I am in at Cornell, UC Hastings, and Davis. I have stats listed on LSN.

CONGRATS everyone on your JS2s!!! So incredible. I hope you've called everyone you know.

I had my KB1 earlier this week and I'm not feeling good about it. I rambled and was not as focused as I wanted to be; I didn't think it would make me so nervous! I'm sincerely hoping I didn't blow my chances. (3.6x, 169, PR Female)

Seems like a lot of folks who didn't feel good about their interviews got in. I wish you luck though, cause the waiting is definitely stressful.

Thanks d330, I know you were waiting as well - have you heard back yet? May I also ask what type of URM? Our numbers are similar.

Still waiting. I had my JS1 on 1/9. AA male. 168/3.73. Grad degree and some strong softs. During my skype I had a few internet connection problems. Still can't stop thinking of how better it would have gone if I could have had a seamless conversation.

I'm sure JS understands that interviewees are understandably nervous. By sheer virtue of your numbers, I'm willing to bet you're in.

I had my JS1 on 12/17 and felt terrible about it and I got a JS2 two weeks ago.

Also, dinged at Berkeley this morning.

read2465 wrote:JS2 today!! I interviewed on Tuesday, so needless to say, I was NOT expecting anything this soon, much less an acceptance. I am in shock--I couldn't get my phone in time and it went to voicemail. Wow. I don't feel so bad about canceling my February retake now!

I deleted some of my older posts in a fit of privacy, but I'm over it now, so here are my stats: Female MA 3.74(LSAC GPA)/3.82 (UGPA)/167 with what I think are some somewhat compelling softs.

I'm happy to answer any questions about the interview or my application. I fully credit this board for urging me to aim much higher, and I am so grateful.



Wow that was quick! Congrats!
