Yeah, I put the right Skype address, so far as I remember. Maybe they'll just add me before they call.

Cicero76, I have a JS1 tomorrow morning and I haven't received a contact request either. I think they'll probably just add us tomorrow.

My skype request was timestamped at like 3am or something ridiculous when I opened it up the day of the interview.
I think someone said they were only added about half an hour beforehand.
It'll be fine!

The best ones get it immediately after their Skype call ends.

Longest is months...
Shortest is probably a couple of days (time between their interview and the next batch of JS2s)

Help. I woke up this morning and immediately replayed my KB1 in my head and thought about all the parts where it could have gone (did go?) wrong... this is going to be a loooooooong few weeks (months? years????).

Not only did they never add me as a contact, HLS is ten minutes late for my interview. This is a nightmare.

You're kidding... maybe you entered your Skype username incorrectly? They never let you see it or edit it after initially entering it. But hopefully they're just running late! (Which makes you look better.)

Wouldn't worry, I was the first interview of the day when I did mine and KB was like 8 minutes late. Bonus points to you for posting to TLS at a time that is techincally during your JS1 though.

All worry for nothing. Interview went fantastically well, JS is amazing. I should probably delete that panic post before I out myself.

180 for my posting DURING my JS1? #tlsfirst

Yay, great job! I would take the panic of them being late in exchange for a great interview. :)

looks like they are waiting to evaluate a ton of js1s at once (all last week and this week) and then pick a select few for js2 next week. agreed?

Breathe. Posters above said theirs were late as well. I know Skype interviews are scary but you will do VERY well!! Then you can relax for a bit!

I agree. maybe its just me but looks like there are tons of JS1 scheduled every week lol but not as many JS2.. I am beginning to doubt the 70% conversion rate..

Perhaps they're also breaking away from the traditionally strong linear relationship between JS1 date and JS2 date, so a larger percentage of folk will get their JS2 after HLS has done more JS1s...

OMG. My JS1 actually started at the exact moment when I was posting here. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

JS was so pleasant! I think I babbled and nervously giggled most of the time and I don't remember what I actually said. It only lasted 15 minutes and I only had like 4-5 standard questions. I swear my English is usually way better! Ugh....But I think I definitely conveyed my passion and interest.

Still shaking...

It seems a little irrational to try to correlate percentages with the little information we have, particularly if we are going to correlate the numbers in such a way that drives the folks still waiting into a panic. I'd say it looks like there will be a percentage approaching 90 this year, with everyone who has been waitlisted or held after a JS1 ultimately being offered admission in the next few weeks. Also, all JS1s from today will get a JS2 call later this afternoon. I also suspect several of us gave our previous cell phone numbers and have already been called back for JS2, we just don't know yet. At least I hope that's my situation.
