Nope, I'm a 172/3.6 and I haven't heard anything (yet).

It looks like the first round was for people above both medians, and the second round was for people above the LSAT 75th... I wouldn't worry if you don't fit in either category and still don't have a JS1

I hadn't noticed those trends. Interesting.

3.8x, 174 still waiting for a JS-1, just deflating the theory a bit.

I think there have been exceptions for URM/non-trad, but I think that's what's happening more or less. The first/second round logic might not always apply though (since Yarsten just got one today). And it looks like they're not dipping down below the GPA 25th too much yet either

ETA: Yeah, this is all just speculation

Well I'm pumped that they are interviewing 3.6 GPAs! I only have a 172, but it makes me hopeful that they don't completely avoid 3.6!

Congrats all JS1's! Hope to be joining the party sometime...!

Yes I was definitely surprised. But given that a below 170 applicant got one I figured it might happen on the other end as well

Keep up hope

My application has been complete on the status checker since 11/20 (submitted 11/12). Just got an email today saying "your application to HLS is complete." But I thought it already was!! Which is the actual completion date?
