I got my "complete" email at 10 am and a JS1 email at 2 pm.

What to make of the super short turnaround? I have a slightly above median LSAT and a slightly below median GPA from a T-25.

They pretty much shattered the GPA floor with me.

To those who got JS1s this week and are interviewing next week?

Since interviews are scheduled for Tues-Thurs, do you think we'll start hearing back the week after? Or maybe we are part of a larger group that will all hear back later in December

Mine said "Interview Scheduled," after I received my interview confirmation but I had my JS1 on Tues and nothing has changed since then. Don't worry about it (though, that we are all here suggests that we are, in fact, worried about it some way or another).

Someone said they are doing interviews both next week and the week after that. This means two things:

1) More JS1s on the way next week
2) One round of JS2s to occur the week of 12/17. And that will probably be it until January.

I honestly haven't been following this thread much since I didn't expect to actually get an interview, so what's the logic behind this projection?

I'll go back later and review the whole thread so I can avoid asking already-answered questions, but this one will tide me over for now.

Last year you had a few people hear back on 5th-8th, a few more on the 14th, and then a big group on December 20th and 22nd. My guess is that most of us that get JS2s will hear back right before Christmas.

Well they most likely won't be doing JS2s the week of 12/10 when they are doing a bunch of interviews. It makes more sense that they would wait and do the JS2s after the 2 straight weeks of interviewing.

Also, 12/17 fits in line with last year's timeline in terms of December admits.

What have been done about wearing headphones when skype interviewing? I prefer to, it helps me hear them better, but I'm not sure what' kosher.

Underneath the "Application Complete" on your status checker, it'll have a current status date. That date is the correct one.

From their blog:
Once your application is complete and ready to be read, your status checker will read Application Complete. In addition, you will get an Application Complete email from us within a week of your status checker changing to Application Complete.


So it's normal for the email to be a few days late, it seems.

I probably wouldn't do this, as you want your interview to be as professional as possible. Being over Skype I wanted to make especially sure that it was as normal as possible since talking over video is awkward enough. But that's just my opinion!

I really hope that those of us interviewed Tuesday hear back before these next two weeks of interviews, but realistically I agree that it probably won't be till the end of December...
