Tuning into the thread today to root for you all. Fingers crossed for scores of JS2s & JS1s before sundown.

Re JS1s, I don't think that'll happen today. Calendar would be empty/unavailable for next week right?

Well after reading those profiles I have no hope for myself for H, nor do I feel I deserve to be accepted to B. Thinking I slipped under the radar big-time at B.

For S, I do have a "thread" running through my application, but definitely not enough to overcome my GPA. Gonna try and distract myself and go get coffee and my oil changed.

I gotta say, though, your ninja skills with LSN are IMPRESSIVE. And a little bit scary.

Also, last thought- anyone interested in a compilation of data for ASWs? Now that people are starting to get acceptances I thought it could be helpful. I'll make it tonight if there's an interest.

You have a decent shot, especially if you are willing to ride the WL which could potentially be very active this year.

And if you got into Berk, your softs are probably above avg.

Those aren't bad odds and i would certainly ride the WL if I got it, especially since I have B under my belt. I don't think my softs are above-average at all; I did write a specialized PS for B though so that must've been it.

I haven't gotten a JS1 yet, but for those who have done JS1s: how did you prepare? I know this has probably been asked a million times already, but I don't feel like looking through the 80 pages.

Good night's sleep, well-balanced breakfast, and an hour or so reviewing my resume and the HLS site.

I mean I didn't rehearse lines, but I made sure to have some ideas for how to explain weak spots in my app (which was a good call, btw.)

Me, too. Had a JS1 on 12/14. This is looking scary. So much for this being the year for high LSATs.

JS2!! JS2! JS2!!!!

3.82/170/174, submitted 11/20, JS1 on 12/13.

EDIT: I have a 3.82, not a 3.84. I conflated my GPA and LSAT in my super excited typing. I'm not sure how much it matters, but sorry about that!
