I think Byzantine is the most optimistic person on the internet.

Na, just TLS. For some reason, prospective lawyers skew to the pessimistic side. Who would have guessed?

UR/complete since Oct. 14/27 with no communication. Here's hoping today is the day. Is there a point at which I call? I really don't want to annoy anyone, but at this point...

Anyone else out there sharing the same situation?

Nope. Nothing in my spam folder and my latest status date still says 10/14.

That's so weird, dude. Have you called them to ask politely what's up?

Yeah, don't think that would be inappropriate.

Why? I called Stanford 2 weeks after sending my application because I hadn't received a completion confirmation, and they were extremely nice, checked my file, told me not to worry and sent me a confirmation email that same day. I'm not saying call and ask for a decision, just say you're worried you might have missed some communication because your file has been under review for almost 5 months and you haven't received a hold notification. You don't even have to give your name and stuff until/unless they ask you...

Completely agreed. Best to do this as soon as possible too, just in case there has been some gap in communication/documentation.

No the current grade system is perfect, high passes in everything is auto #swag.

I'm stupid. What's the difference between the two systems?

One has fail. (Obligatory bottom 8% of the class atm @ Harvard IIRC, but that was going to be phased out, no idea about the situation now)

Anyway, massive dingstorm on the way, JS is eager:

Hey all--I had my JS1 a little over a week ago and haven't heard anything about the JS2 yet. I gleaned from LSN that most people get the JS2 about a week after the JS1.

Am I doomed?

(Sorry in advance if this is discussed somewhere else in the thread.)

I just noticed, you're kinda dark.

So, other than the fail part, do the curves look similar for both systems?

byz, you've been waiting for over a week? so I guess after JS1, its either:

1) JS2 within a few days,
2) JS2 within a week or so,
3) held after a week+ (I saw a handful of these on the thread earlier)
4) rejections??

I don't think anyone with a JS1/KB1 has gotten rejected
