That's how I felt in the fall. Now, I am over the feeling.

Maybe JR really is trying to put the focus on people who have been out of undergrad at least a couple years. You and I are basically numbers twins, and we're both non-URM females; the only difference I can see that might account for why I had a JR1&2 is that I've been working for a while.

Stats:
4.05/167
URM
BA from UCLA, MA's from UCLA and UofC
Worked for National Endowment for Democracy, Field work with Roma Gypsy, operated a homeless shelter, pretty solid PS, LOR from professors and boss.

I'm actually pretty surprised that I got a JR1 (and so soon, too)

Good luck to everyone!

Oh, I pulled the wrong stats, yeah I can see why you got the call so quick. Congrats and good luck! :D

I can't tell if you're being serious or not (probably not), but I'd venture to say that she's a real person.

Although this makes sense, it still makes me :( Congrats though!

I actually think there's some validity to this. JR brings up WE in his TLS interview, and it seems that for the most part the still-in-UG people who got in had extremely high stats. So it looks like Harvard's at least taking WE softs fairly seriously.

Not enough! They need to equate 3 years of WE to 1 LSAT point. 8)

Sure. Maybe they'll count all the years of hostessing/waitressing I have too. That'll drive my LSAT right up. :roll:

Held. Well, that's not too bad. I was expecting a rejection. I don't think I'll even send a LOCI. I'm pretty pleased with it.

Heh, one more year of work and I would be sitting on the median (for LSAT, nothing can be done about my GPA).

I can't be the only person obsessively refreshing this page trying to figure out if people are getting JR2s today. Who's with me over here in the JR1--> ??? corner?

JR told me not to hesitate to reach out if I have any questions or concerns. I could give him a call and tell him I'm concerned that cool people on TLS are not getting JR1's.

We're practically numbers twins. How did I not realize this before?
