Yeah I'm sure there's more than just numbers at play (but since we all know they're important, it sounds like you're in great shape.) What I was getting at earlier actually goes along with what you're saying - I think they slot people into the interview list by a lot of factors that go beyond simply the application complete date. In other words, it's not worth worrying "I went complete before that guy but didn't get an interview - does that mean I'm rejected?" Of course not, maybe that guy has interesting work experience, a unique degree, or is from a part of the country that is underrepresented... Maybe JS wants to break up the monotony of numbers-based interviews with people who have really unique backgrounds. It could be anything.
But there's so much time left, and with only two small batches of JS1s released so far and way more of us qualified TLSers than there are spots, some people have to be left out. This should all even out over the next few weeks though as they release more JS1s, so I think worrying about your status based solely on your complete date right now is a waste of energy. Come March we'll all be in anyway!
