+1. Mum always seems to be the voice of reason on these boards. For the neurotics like me who tend to think the worst, her optimism is much appreciated. :D

Alright, thread started: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=172101 (I know it doesn't even come close to HP's standards, sorry guys!)

And thank amc - trust me, I'm just as neurotic on the inside! I almost feel like Harvard could sense it and made me the last person in EST to get the call before moving onto CST just to really make me suffer lol (and it WORKED).

Roguewave, at what time did you get KB1? I submitted 10/22, so I'm getting nervous.

Email was sent at 10 am today. It's for this Wednesday, though, which is later notice than other KB1s I think. They may only be doing a few for this shorter week.

I felt the same way!!! Has anyone been able to get into the admitted students website yet or will they send us the log in info later?

After getting my KB1 email earlier today, I had to send an email back to KB asking whether or not the time of my interview could change. It's scheduled right in the middle of my work day and there aren't many places at my work where I could sit down and take the interview. Of course as soon as I pressed "send", I got nervous and regretted sending the email. Do you think changing the time of the interview to fall outside of my work hours is acceptable?

I think it's okay to ask, but be prepared for her to say no.

I submitted 10/25, complete 11/10, with a 4.0/180, but no KB1 yet. I say this both to comfort everyone who hasn't gotten one yet, and ALSO BECAUSE I'M FREAKING THE F OUT!!!

Well, not really. Not anything like right before LSAT scores came out. But I am being extremely neurotic.

And am I right, there wasn't really any difference in the complete dates between the first and second round of KB1s?

It depends on what you mean - The first round if you mean the ones that now got KB2s were early submitters with complete dates in Oct. The ones that went out today seem to be for the complete on 11/10 crowd. You should be in that group. I'm assuming that more invites will go out Wed after they conduct the ones for today, and then KB2s for that group around the first full week in Dec.

What I mean is, from the group that got KB2s today, weren't there two (or more) rounds of emails? I.e. some got them on a Monday, some on the next Friday, etc.? And it seemed like they all went complete around the same time, and it was mostly random what order they got the emails.

Elston, I think you might be right. I am still not holding my breath for a KB1 at any time in the near future. But with a 4.0 and a 180, I think you will probably get an interview invite at the very least. I wouldn't lose a lot of sleep over it if I were you.

Oh yeah, absolutely no correlation between the Friday vs. Monday invites in terms of completion or submission. I think there might have been something slight from when they first had them in piles or something because it seemed like 8/10 people that got the email on Friday had a 172 on the LSAT, and then on the following Monday it was mainly people with 174 and up (but it just as likely could have been a misrepresentation by the unrepresentative sample on TLS).

ETA: And amc is totally right. You will certainly get one so this should give people hope :)

Is it something you couldn't tell your boss about? I told mine and he was so happy for me he told me I could take the call in his office lol.


Oh no my boss would be fine with it. The problem is there are no quiet places where I could sit down and really give a good interview. I'd probably have to run out to my car. If it's a problem, I can certainly take the interview there but I just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. I hope it doesn't

Apologies for my ignorance, but could somebody fill me on on how long it usually takes to go from UR -> complete? It seems the sequence for those who get KB1's is: received -> UR -> complete -> KB1.

And just to confirm, no TLS-er with complete later than 11/10 has received KB1, correct?

I was UR 10/31, complete 11/10, but I don't think there's a typical amount of time between. It looks like a whole lot of people went complete 11/10, so they probably got a ton of them together at once and processed them.

Late to the party because I'm abroad and woke up to it, but KB1! Forget when I went UR, but it was some time between 10/20 and 10/31.

When was your KB1? Mine was the last interview reported on TLS from the second group of KB1s - Monday of last week. My (desperate?) hope is that they just haven't got to the last few people they interviewed.
