Don't buy into their propaganda and use their terminology! Language is important! Don't let them crush our souls! :D

Instead, say, "I just confirmed the waitlist."


A thousand pardons! What I meant was: I just confirmed the waitlist.

Does anyone know if going KB1 --> Waitlist means a lower probability of being accepted off the waitlist.

Having one of the lowest LSAT scores on the list makes me wonder WTF am I doing here.... I am honored to be in the company of you guys.

Also further solidifies my plans to retake/pwn the LSAT in June. You guys inspire me.

So, theres currently 52 people on the waitlist spreadsheet, and I'm guesstimating theres 30 TLSers reporting waitlists but not filling out the form. So the TLS waitlist contingent is maybe 80 people, and who knows how many others not on TLS with WLs.

Also, it looks like theres fewer high-LSATs on the 2012 waitlist compared to the 2011 waitlist. Could be good news for some here.

Interesting. So recent KB1s got the WL email last? Does this mean that more people enrolled than was expected?

Last Friday. I allowed myself to get my hopes up because it was so late in the game. Not sure if I had a bad/ not impressive interview or there was just uncertainty about spots leading up to the deposit deadline.

I don't think that's necessarily true. I was interviewed post-hold on March 30th and I am the third person on the wait list spread sheet--I got the email 4/25.

Edit: Oh maybe, I didn't realize Mvtmhbbt interviewed so recently.

I think those last KB1s were candidates they were interested in, but they just got to them kinda late. So they still interviewed them, but knew most wouldn't be offered spots right away. My guess is that they might be the first to get off the waitlist (since I doubt all of them bombed their KB1s).

Yea, that's the other way of looking at it. They were late KB1s, but they might be the first taken off of the WL.

Either way, it is unsettling.

I just want to share with my new favorite thread of Harvard semi-rejects that I had my palm read by a psychic on my way to work today. This is not a joke.

I mostly just went in because the woman is nice and harasses me every day on the way to the office, so I figured I'd give her $5 so she can leave me alone. Now she's doing a "cleansing" for me and if she manages to get rid of the unclean spirit that is following me around, I will have good news in 3 days. I'll let you know if I get a KB1 in three days, so you all can go have your evil spirits checked :D :D

Is that 3 business days or 3 days? I'm not sure if spirits take weekends or not.

Good question! The candles she will light for me burn for three days in the church, so that would probably mean three normal days. So I'm expecting my KB1 on Sunday. Who is KB to defy the spirit realm and refuse to go to work on Sunday??

If today counts, then it could be Saturday...
