To those getting interviews, may be an ill-informed question, but when was your last status date on the status checker?

Cicero76 wrote:So I'm checking in here. Just got my LSAT score, so I'll probably apply within the next week or two. Can anybody offer advice on how much my 3.85 GPA (.04 below the median) is going to hurt? My 174 is pretty safely median, but I don't look forward to waitlist purgatory for months. Is that the most likely scenario for me?

Harvard's 25th percentile GPA dropped to 3.77 and the 75th to 3.95, so I would think the median is now around 3.86, though I cannot find this info. Also, with the drop in 25th percentile LSAT to 170 and 75th to 175, I'd say you are safely above median for the LSAT! So basically I think you have a good chance of getting an interview :D


I agree with this. I'm pretty sure you'll get an interview.

Can I trade my 3.92 GPA & 168 LSAT for your 3.85 GPA & 174 :( ?

I wonder if some of us will be dinged soon? I think I remember reading in last year's thread that some people were dinged in October and November.

Just registered for the interview. Any way we can check to make sure we typed our Skype names in correctly? I think I may have typed the wrong one in.

Congrats to everyone else who got an interview; you all deserve it! To everyone who is still waiting: good luck!

The 18 is so good. If you like that one, you should get some Balvenie 21 for your JS2

Nah, they do these things in waves. If not today, then later.

Did people who have received JS1 invites apply first day app opened or close to it? Maybe they are sending interviews in order of receiving app

Stop stressing, guys. You will all be fine--there is a lot of time left for this admissions cycle. I'm crossing my fingers for all of you.

Now, time to enjoy the weekend 8).
