Went under review early January and no news since:( Don't want to freak out prematurely, but...I am feeling not so hopeful. In all fairness, 165/3.8 doesn't make me a strong candidate for Harvard, but I was hoping my work experience and diversity (half AA, half German) would help.

If I make it onto the waitlist and crack 170 on the June LSAT, will it help me off the waitlist?

At what point to I give up hope of getting a KB1? Under review since January without movvement. Would it be silly to send a resume update already? I have something to add, but want to be in good form.

Good luck Elliott! I'm hopefully awaiting a JS2 as well; I had my JS1 on Friday afternoon. And I wish everyone who's still waiting for their JS1 or KB1 good fortune!

Also, may everyone who posted on this thread this cycle get accepted. That should be numerically possible, right? Yup:)

I think it went fairly well; we seemed to have a good conversation. No real surprise questions. She was really nice! And sorry if I excluded anyone in wishing good luck; best of luck to you all!

Definitely hoping for tomorrow or Wednesday to hear back, but I won't start worrying until next week.

How long did most of you receive your UR emails after submitting? And how long after that for the "complete" emails?

There is no UR email, just a status update. Then, some time after the status update, you will get the Complete email. Generally about a week or so passes between the two (I think).

Yeah, I'm completely useless. JS2 anxiety+no work today, not a good combination.

Time to get out of the house.

Might be because they haven't gone through the holds yet/are waiting to finish the rest non-holds before holds, and the numbers go down closer to the deadline.

Awesome news from someone (presumably) named for an awesome song. Congrats and good luck!
