Its all on page 88. But if you're not up for doing that, here are some things they wont ask:

Some say blondes have more fun. From a legal perspective how would you analyze that argument?
Would you ever consider suing the TSA for not frisking you and making you feel left out?
I noticed that you only got an A- in a class you should have milked, how do you explain this udder failure?
If we promise to accept you right now, will you withdraw from Yale? Will you take a loyalty oath?
Weezer: Awesome or awful? There is a correct answer.
If KB: Tell me how happy you are to have gotten me instead of JS.
If you could be a scented candle, which scent and color would it be?
Tell me your opinions on affirmative action, abortion, immigration, and piracy.


HTH



Is there a big difference between KB and Js?


I cannot believe that this was the takeaway. God we are an aspie bunch. SMH.

From what has been said in the thread and my own experience, both are great interviewers.



lol i thought that too. just barrelin' on through with the blinders on, i see.

You need to stop worrying. Literally no 1/22 completes were included in this JS1 batch.

Yeah, I don't think they have gotten to the later complete applications yet, but I do remember JS straight-out telling me that there is an advantage to applying earlier, while Asha and Dean Deal blatantly said applying later would be no disadvantage at all.

So do we think no more JS1s for 1/15 completes? I'm practically an auto-ding so the fact that I haven't gotten one is not a good indicator for others' chances. Also, anyone know if JS1s typically start trickling out as the cycle winds down or if they keep coming in clear waves til the end?

I'm a 1/2 submit -> 1/22 complete. A lot of 1/3 submits were 1/15 completes. I don't think those who submitted after us have any distinct advantage just for going complete first.

You're right. I prob need to go pop a Xanax and do some yoga. The submit -> complete timeline seems completely arbitrary.

Is it just the three of us in this 1/22 batch? And our target range is next week right?

There's a couple more 1/22s and some 1/17s on LSN, and none of them have reported a JS1 in their profile. And yeah, if I were a betting man I'd bet next week.

Does anyone know what username we use to get on to the accepted student weekend website? Is it just the part of our HLS email before the @jd16.law.harvard.edu part (so first initial, last name)?

Does HLS accept w/o an interview? Or is an interview pretty much a prerequisite to admission? i.e. I'm in the Princeton Law group (complete early december, radio silence)--any chance of a direct admit? Or are they deciding whether or not to put me on the waitlist vs. a hold or interview?

About 1200 people will be interviewed and 850 will be accepted, implying a 70% chance of turning a JS1 into a JS2.

Generally if you don't get a JS2 within about three weeks of your JS1 you're en route to being held/waitlisted/dinged, but this might change once we get to April and the adcom is making final decisions (that is, people who had their JS1 months before might get a JS2 out of the blue).



Complete 12/17. Getting depressed.
