When do you start worrying about no JR1?

Postby village-idiot » Tue Jan 05, 2010 4:09 pm

Hi Everyone,
Just trying to get a sense of how this generally works. I submitted my application around mid-November. Went complete a few days before Christmas. From what I understand my numbers are competitve. Does my lack of a JR1 email at this point mean I have a significantly low chance of getting one later in the cycle?

Wait at least a couple of weeks before worrying at all. You've effectively only been complete for maybe four or five days; the admissions office was closed starting Christmas Eve until yesterday.

For the most part the best information you can get is from looking at applicants on Law School Numbers.

I went complete 1/14 and no JR1...do they come out after a month?
Im a URM if that makes any difference (oh and the fact that my numbers make this a hail mary pass)

You're definetely not a likely candidate as you would have probably already had a JR1 if so, but my thoughts are that as long as you haven't received a ding or a waitlist notification you are still in the running for JR1.

+1. Though I mentally prepared myself for the eventual WL, it will still hurt.
