FYI, here's the KB1 data so far in the thread:

170 4.06 LaCumparsita
low 170s 3.7ish MyLegendLives URM
172 3.9x defrutamadre
172 3.8+ instantwonton
172 4.0 annyong
172 4.0 spek URM
172 4.0 aperfectmap
172 4.0 kulshan
172 3.9 sdwhodat
173 3.99 thederangedwang
>173 >3.9 soj
174 4.0 MumofCad
174 Superior AntipodeanPhil
slightly above median, slightly above 75th ignatiusr
175 3.89 RabbitTroop
177 3.8 igelchen
177 3.95 paperflower
178 3.88 yolav
179 3.9 dean 159
high 170s 3.8x Schola
no data metaphobe


Median LSAT looks to be about 173 so far.

edit: My numbers twins and I have fared pretty well. We don't mind boosting the GPA 75th without lowering the LSAT 25th, I guess ;).

In unrelated news, here's something in which you all might be interested. I set a Google Voice Lite account with my phone number. Basically it transfers your voicemail to Google. That way you can do things like set up different messages for different people or groups. The main reason I wanted it now is that you can check your voicemail on any computer via your google account AND it will email you when you get a voicemail with its best transcription of the message. So if you, like me, need to be away from your phone for 9 days starting Tuesday (or if you, like me, are more likely to check your email than your voicemail), you might want to set it up.

I'll say the 22nd since other dates were taken. I want it to stay thanksgiving week but in reality I'm thinking it will probably be pushed back...

+1. I'll guess 23rd. I really hope it's before Thanksgiving though she said end of the month which I guess would be the week after the holiday.

Still, *fingers crossed*

I'll say Nov. 21, as I am foolishly optimistic. Also, I assume that there's no warning for the KB2s like there was for KB1s, right? It's just the call saying you got it, correct?

It comes out of nowhere like a lightning bolt on a sunny day, first you are frozen, some people are unable to answer the phone when they see that area code, they keep the message on their phone and sleep with it at night replaying it ova and ova, others who do answer, go into orgasmic convulsions and end up exhausted on the floor like a quivering bowl of jello, it's a mess. If you are out and about, you usually have to take a taxi home because you end up like when you're at the eye doctor and they put those drops in your eyes....you literally can't see from the endorphin ova load.

Pro tip carry cash.

My vote is for November 21st too. It seems like the KB1s are not as spaced out as last year's, so I think they may be aiming for the same date as 2010 (Monday before Thanksgiving.) I may also be foolishly optimistic. :)

If this is representative (which we have no way to know), then there is really only 2 things that could be going on:

1) The numbers are going to change slightly this year possibly due to low apps

or

2) They have a different strategy for the interviews this year. The year that so many didn't get in, was that the other year that KB ran things as an interim? Maybe she has a different approach to the whole thing? (hopefully its #1)

Because look at last year's sample of people with early interviews. Compare it to this year...and just reading through last year's thread, it really seemed like most of the people who got them were above both medians or URM:

Non-URM Data
Overall
n=23
Avg LSAT: 177
Avg GPA: 3.91
Median LSAT: 177
Median GPA: 3.92
JR1, no JR2
n=2
Avg LSAT: 177
Avg GPA: 3.94

I think it's #1. This is the second year that applications have seen a significant drop. JR was the head of Admissions in 2009, not KB. So I doubt it's a change in strategy.

does this mean that we just get a call out of nowhere? and if we arent around to answer we get a message on voicemail?

I'm going to make two bold predictions:

1) More KB1s invites will come out today, in about an hour or so.
2) The first round of KB2s will come out this week before the KB1 interviews that are going to be scheduled before lunch today.

I'll throw in a magical third prediction for good measure:

W/in the next 6 months you are going to see Greece, Portugal, and/or Spain begin to impose capital controls, which will be the beginning of the end of the Eurozone experiment.
