so...we'll see how this goes. please wish me luck (or give me advice, i am sure i will need it)! rooting hard for everybody and happy to chat about my interview after it happens if you want to pm me.

Could not agree more. JS is great. I didn't even realize how much time had passed when she finally said "oops, it's been twenty minutes. I think we'd better start wrapping up soon." You'll end off wishing you could keep the conversation going just because it's fun and gives you a chance to (sort of) interact with the school. All in all a great experience. I was so scared going into it that I literally could not eat or sleep, which was totally unfounded. MY best advice to you is to not get nervous about this. It's a lot more fun, and less stressful, than you might imagine.

One interesting note:

If you look at this coming week's schedule for interviews, there are slots each day. However, there are two different "HLS Interviewer"s you can select. I assume one is KB and the other JS. According to the schedule, one is interviewing M-Th (but not Friday), and the other is only interviewing on Wednesday and Friday, but is M, T, and Th free. Think this could mean we may be seeing a small trickle of JS1s and/or JS2s throughout the week since M, T, Th, and F each only have one person interviewing, with the other free.

You just sealed my fate. I will not be able to concentrate for this entire week.

Remember when all dat movement was supposed to happen Friday and didn't?

Tired of the speculating. Like Doorkeeper said, gotta avoid this thread for the sake of one's sanity.

Good observation. I forgot to check that.

And +1 to everything said about JS. I hate that I got so nervous about it. Yes, it's obviously important, but she is in no way out to trip you up; it was like meeting someone new over coffee... except through a computer.
BTW, now 100% ready to make good on my promise to talk to upcoming JS1s about it and answer any questions.

I had a relatively stressful JS1 and fully expect to get passed over for JS2s this week (or next), but I'm also happy to answer general questions about the interview process over PM.

This is very interesting....however, is it possible that those days are already filled with interviews?

Last week was exhausting. This next week should be epic on many accounts. To better prepare myself, I just ate a huge slab of Honey Garlic Pork Chops.

I'm thinking this is going to be a great week.

Bring it.

In that case, I'd be pretty surprised if you didn't hear from anyone. If I were you I'd just sit back and enjoy the week, with the knowledge that something's gotta happen this week.

I've been waiting to post this one... :lol:

Hoping for a JS1 this week. Though I know it's a stretch... Would make the end of finals so much happier

If I were JS I would give you a JS1 just for this post. I'm getting some weird looks right now for actually laughing out loud.

JS1 invite this morning.

For past JS1-ers, did you receive an email that stated, "Admissions must confirm your request"? Just wondering and freaking out.

Thanks!

Congratulations!! What time did you get it? Does this mean that JS is not interviewing today?
