Without going back to look, I'm pretty sure there was a 168/3.91 that got a JS1.


Yes that was me, non-URM.


I guess every law school in the top 20 needs to hold emergency meetings this weekend. Trickle up right?

Musta stole my spot, numbers are so similar. :evil:

Anyone think there's a chance they would come across an application that seems very likely to be able to accept in August and purposely hold onto it/not interview now so they could have it for emergency purposes if someone didn't show up to orientation? That'd suck...

Safe to assume those who haven't received a JS1/KB1 should abandon hope?

It seems like the first wave, which is by far the largest, has finished up. This being said, Harvard historically does take a few people in July and/or August as spots become available. It's not automatic that everyone who was just admitted will attend, and a few people already deposited will probably defer. This all being said, if no JS1s come out early next week, one should probably start focusing on the school they have deposited at, but stay on the Harvard WL in case spots do develop.

Also, for those wondering, deposit date is July 2nd.

Haha I like the optimism. At this point I just hope I'm not waiting till August for my rejection.

Oh haiiii! :) Pessimism aside, I don't think there will be any TLS movement until late July when they will cut off most people and maybe admit 1. This wave was so GINORMOUS that it must be the usual big two combined. Plus, deferrals would have happened by this point.

But hey, I'm in Cambridge every other weekend because of the boyfriend, so we can still drink! :D

Totally rooting for Elendil, hypo, and amc to join us. Deposit deadline is July 2nd, so if any WL people don't matriculate then, I assume some more JS1s will go out.

For the sake of future waitlisters calculating their odds, I should add that I got my JS2 last night as well. Couldn't be happier with the end of my cycle. Good luck to the rest of you!
