+1 although H is a reach for me (thus why I haven't posted in this thread yet, as I'm a little embarrassed by my numbers).

Not to sound too much like a stalker, but I'm still rooting for you az, it looks like you've had an amazing cycle so far. Don't see why it would necessarily end with H!

Don't give up yet.

If they average, I'm a 168.

I highly doubt HLS is averaging this cycle. Also, I don't know how accurate the Facebook group is, but it seems like they still have a good number of people to admit. They're probably looking for high LSATs more than ever.

850 (offers) - 311 (FB group) - 50 (approximation of people not on FB) = remaining admits (?)

Brosef... use kappycaft1' spreadsheet and count the number of admits on LSN. Much more accurate, IMHO than FB.

there are fewer than 100 admits on LSN. how is that more accurate?

If you go off of last year's numbers, there were 134 admits recorded on LSN, which is 16% of the 830 admitted students.

Extrapolating to this year, there are 98 currently accepted students on LSN, implying that there have been around 607 JS2's.

Hmmm... Is there any way we can compare the number of total applicants from LSN last year to this year? It seems too early for HLS to pretty much have its class finalized, IMHO. IDK though.

in any case, the graph in the OP suggests that the next week or so will be big for JS1s waiting on JS2s.

Seems flawed. Doesn't allow for growth in market share for LSN.

I'm so glad I'm going on vacation next week. I had JS1 on Tuesday and I think I'd go crazy if I keep checking TLS every single second of every day. Only time I have wished for no internet access.

Congrats everybody that got JS2s!!!!

Thanks to everyone for the good wishes. I'm super excited to leave the ranks of applicant and transition to full time cheerleader. If anybody needs advice on JS1s or applications, shoot me a PM!
