Wow, so if you get far enough for JS1 you basically have an 8/10 chance of admission?
What is JS1 for? Just to make sure you have decent social skills or what?
And what does "JS" stand for?
I appreciate the response.
Karen Buttenbaum (Director of Admissions) spoke at my school recently and she said it's just another way of getting to know the applicant. For example, there's your numbers (GPA, LSAT), then your application gives a better idea of who you are behind the number, and then your interview gives them a better idea of who you are in a more personal sense.
If you make it to the interview, that means they liked your application enough that they're interested in accepting you. JS1 is just like a way for them to double-check that. I wouldn't be surprised at all if your odds of admission, given that you were granted an interview, were that high.
Also, JS1 just stands for Jessica Soban 1st phone call. She used to be the one (might still be one of the ones) making the calls, so JS1 is just an abbreviation for that.
