Call for JR1 Stats

Postby thecynic69 » Thu Feb 10, 2011 10:29 pm

Hi all, I did the JR1 a couple days ago, and now I can't think about anything else. If anyone would like to join me for some over-analyzing (and/or maybe throw in some stats), I'd love the company.

Things I'm currently wondering about:
Does an applicant have a higher or lower chance at getting into Harvard with a late JR1 than an early one (i.e., is Harvard more generous with the JR1's early on in the cycle, or later?)

Can you infer anything from the speed with which you got a JR1? (I went UR less than 20 days after submitting my app, got my JR1 scheduling email the day after going UR, and the interview was scheduled for four days after the email was sent...seems rather fast paced to me, especially this late in the game)

Is there anything peculiar about URM JR1s (are they disproportionately accepted or rejected?)

Has anyone ever been ambushed during the interview (asked anything other than why law school, why Harvard [and other associated questions])?

I'd offer my stats, but I feel that those stats in conjunction with the above information would uniquely identify me. LSP gives me an admit, for whatever that's worth.

First of all I'm jealous. Second of all, I would say to just sit back relax and enjoy the wait. I can't comment to any of the stats mentioned, but based off what I've read you still have some time to kill. Although I've heard there is a relatively short wait between auto-admit JR1s and JR2. (relatively considering other schools make you wait months before hearing ANYTHING!)

Any way good luck man! I hope I get a JRdenial letter soon so I can end my cycle! Lol
