Now I think JR is focusing on sending out JR1 emails to those held. :lol:

I like the little no-JR1 support network we've got going here. Here's to this week being a little luckier than the past 17 (yes, this is week 17 since I've been UR)!

Love TLS support groups. Haven't counted the number of UR weeks, but I was originally UR 10/18 I think.

I hope not, otherwise I am doomed. I am holding out hope for some JR1s for the late submitters.


I also hope not. I was a late applicant (1/17), and I'm starting to wonder if my rejection letter is sitting around waiting to be stamped :(

Love the optimism on this thread, though perhaps you guys are justified in feeling so. Considering my #s, I am only hoping for a WL at this point!

Ha yeah, I'll try to rally my spirits. To be honest, I'm getting a bit psyched out seeing that many people, even late applicants, are getting decisions and JR1s when all I've gotten is stony silence!

Also, in a post on last year's thread for Harvard applicants, someone reported 126 acceptances on LSN on March 17, 2010.

Today, March 16, 2011, we have 93 reported. This seems to shed further light on the fact that HLS is moving more slowly this year and there are indeed more JR1s/JR2s to be distributed.

Or just a different sample size on lsn this year.

Which is more likely given the fact that a lot less people took the LSAT this cycle.

LSN doesn't tell a straight story. Bad sample.

+1, last year's H applicants list is 8 pages long and this year is 5. So we are actually over the limit, they might rescind some of the admission offers. ADMITTED STUDENTS BEWARE! (126/8 * 5 = 78,75 <<<<< 93 )

Lsn has it's place. It's great for trend spotting and such. Getting absolutes, not so much.

And do you feel like it was worth it/are you glad you left CLS and went to HLS?
