Does anyone know if a shorter interview is bad? She was also 3 minutes late so maybe she was trying to make up for a bit of lost time? I don't know! Ahhh!


People with short and long interviews have gotten in. I don't think it matters. I only got three questions, but the interview went for 17 mins. It just depends if you're more direct or conversational as an interviewee, I'd imagine. But I doubt it makes a difference for selections.


With KB? Jeez man, take a breath!

I think you'll be fine, its a natural reaction to be self-critical after something so important.

Don't feel bad. I had a very similar experience.

Edit: But I am still a JS1 so if anything we can just wait in solidarity.


When did you get your JS1?

And thanks guys...I know I'm probably over-analyzing but it just threw me off that a short interview was even shorter...

I know that HLS accepts late applications. Would there be any harm in submitting a late application this cycle and would I be at a disadvantage reapplying next cycle?

5 cents that there will be no JS2s this week.

At this point, I'm on his side. My mental fortitude has completely died. Harvard, you win.

Incorrect. I will take both of these bets and shall make $0.10 at SLS's ASW

(If only I lived in NJ, this would be legal)

Mischaracterization of my terms. Said no news - js1 or js2 - until Friday

My b. I just zoned in on the JS2 part and wrote off Friday as hold/ding day. In that case, I don't think there will be JS2s on Friday--that would be pretty uncharacteristic.

Nah, brah. Then she might just call you more out of confusion and for "closure." Ain't nobody got time for that!

Good point.

By bumping this thread, I made everyone, momentarily, think that JS2s were going out but then crushed their hopes and dreams. I am the puppet master of your emotions.

Edit: in the 5 minutes since I posted this, the thread has been viewed 37 times. Victory. Also, TLS is OCD.

I'm curious how KB rushes things along. Does she cut off responses or use strong body language? I'm concerned because I have long answers planned for some of the more difficult questions I'm likely to be asked and that could really throw me. Maybe I need a tl;dr version.

I didn't personally feel rushed. But it was sporadic.. if that's the right word? Like if you have a long answer, she's not going to then turn that into a starting point for conversation. It'll be on to Question #2.

For me it was kind of like when I finished a full thought she would acknowledge it in some way like say uh huh or right and then go straight into another question even though I could have continued talking after, if that makes sense.
