Me too. Really, during the Friday afternoon and all of Saturday after my interview, I sat in my apartment alone in utter despair thinking I blew it!

Thank you all of the advice and support in this thread. I think the only different thing I have to contribute is I was asked about my huge LSAT score disparity (almost 10 points) in my JS1. I'm glad I had an answer prepared otherwise I could have sounded whiny or worse. So those of you who are in a similar situation -- be prepared for that!

PM me if you want any more info on anything, including my JS1. I'm happy to help however I can. You guys are awesome.

Also, congrats to all the JS2s!! Seriously it's such a gigantic achievement, and though I'm very jealous of you all, I promise not to be bitter :)

I think you forgot the part about congrats on getting into Harvard Law :) Congrats JS2s and like Mr Elshal I'd be happy to answer any JS1 questions via pm; I did a lot of prep myself so have a good grasp of what kinds of things they're asking.

JS1 is finally over and done with. Now the (perhaps long) wait begins...

Hi all, I have my JS1 in a week and I was wondering where I could find some good advice on prepping for it. I'm sure it's covered somewhere already on this thread, but at 112 pages it is hard to find, so if this is repetitive I apologize. I've already googled a bit and read up the post about the interviews on the admissions blog, but any other advice would be greatly appreciated, even if its just telling me what page in this thread to look at.

Thanks!

Me too if that helps.


I submitted on 1/3 and just went complete (via status checker, didn't get an email) today. If you guys haven't already, hopefully you will soon too.

My status checker updated two days before I got the email, so it's the one to keep an eye on.

BOO I still haven't. This is probably appropriate grounds to call and email everyone working in the admissions office right?

Maybe like several times each?

I would probably just go ahead and show up at their home address. Better safe than sorry, right?

I mentioned TLS and somehow had a mini-debate about it that I was so not prepared for as I definitely failed to adequately defend my side..

All we can do is wait.

I'm mad at you.

Edit: Also the fact that the Yale thing they send to URM candidates explicitly talks about about how "places like TLS are" bad/worthless/should be avoided.


Because it deserves it. :P

What exactly do they say about 'places like TLS?' I find that very funny. I'd also really be interested to hear from facile princeps (maybe in a PM) about what was in this TLS mini-debate.

I was very unsure on my JS1 and felt that I really didn't feel that I did well, and got my JS2 yesterday. Just stay sane and think of as a part of your total application
