Long time lurker here. I'm in at UCLA, Texas, and Georgetown; have an interview slated this week with uChicago. Radio silence everywhere else, which is, well, soul crushingly disappointing.

I was hoping to catch a wave with Berkeley today, but alas. :(

Same, but especially for USC and UCLA if you heard anything from them. What are your stats, by the way? Sorry if you already mentioned it.

Hey,

So there was a wave of JS2 and as a URM I was looking for other URMS who got accepted and there seemed to be only 1. I went on to LSN and previous urm cycle results' threads and browsed over the dates people submitted/interviewed/accepted and I was wondering.

Do HYS (particularly H) send out URM acceptance later on once they get a sense of the cycle in comparison to non-URMS? Kinda bummed that I interviewed in November and was not part of this wave of JS2. Losing hope ..

Did anyone apply to HYS within the first week of January? And if so, were you contacted for an interview?

I’m worried my apps won’t get considered because they’re late. :(

Checking In. Active Duty, African American, Female, Army Lieutenant Colonel, due to retire this summer after 22 years of service. Horrible undergrad grades (too much partying and sorority life), but two Masters degrees with 4.0 GPAs. Four full deployments to Afghanistan, Kuwait and Iraq. Mediocre LSAT but I have GI Bill/Yellow Ribbon and retirement pay so I don't need scholly money. My softs are amazing and my letters of recommendations legendary, I am what bloggers would call a Unicorn. I've been admitted to a handful of tier four schools but my first choice is Syracuse, Go Orange or Go Home!
