You...you do know what the troll face indicates, right?



LOL, it would appear not. Let me pretend we don't have that in Canada....

Congrats! Submit date? You have given me hope, we have pretty similar stats, with a slightly lower GPA.

Wow, that's a long wait... Did you ask them to hold off for the December LSAT?

Also, congrats! :)

JS2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So stunned. Good luck to everyone still waiting (JS2 or JS1), this forum's been so helpful to me (although harmful in its own ways too). PM if you have any questions, want to spread the love as much as I can.

JS2 just now!

I must've sounded super surprised since it's 7:20 EST already. Time to dig up some of those HLS v. SLS threads!

Thanks! My second letter of recommendation wasn't processed by LSAC until 1/6 so I think that's why it took so long

I'm getting a new rec letter written for Yale. I already sent 3 rec letters to Harvard, but the new one is from a prof in a different subject than the originals and should be stronger than the others..should I sent it to Harvard when it's done? Went UR in late Jan, so expect to be chilling in limbo for awhile

Congrats, Tribonian!

From what I can remember, and please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong: Architect had her JS1 last Wednesday (2/15), and Tribonian's was last Friday (2/17).

...I'm gonna go take another walk.

Is that Ali McGraw as your avatar? If so, that alone should guarantee you a JS2 :)

Oh wow, so Friday interviews have heard back?

Do JS2s come in order? Is it time to stop hoping for my phone to ring?

Hahaha love means never having to say you're sorry, Harvard, so I won't mention how you've kept me on tenterhooks. Shh. It's okay.

But much as I appreciate the sentiment, my avatar's actually Lila Fowler, from the '80s-tastic Sweet Valley High book series.

Elliott - maybe for today, but (according to the all-knowing thread) there are many examples of people getting JS2s even after others in their interview batch have heard back for days. There's still hope, I think.

Yeah - hoping since they started so late today that there's a little spillover for tomorrow...hoping...hoping...

Congrats to everyone!

It also seems to me that, if you get the js1, it does not
mean they stop looking at the rest of your file. It's just another data point.
