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.


Thanks guys, that's very helpful to prepare. Sounds a bit like a bad date. :?

Good luck on your JS1. Remember to prepare under harsh conditions....like the Spartans trained for war.

Has there ever been a week where there was no movement at all? At this rate, I really will owe vzapana a nickel. :( AND I will be forever waiting still.

Well it now appears that vzapana either works in HLS admissions or is a relative of Aunt Cleo.

Haha don't get me wrong though, KB is really nice and makes you feel really at ease. It wasn't as if she was disinterested or rude.

Have there been any JS1s off of the hold list? Or should I expect to put a deposit in for another school and keep waiting through summer

I'd still be waiting on the Feb score anyway. So either way I guess I'm just destined to linger in the Princeton Law pile!

Pretty cool that you remembered a post I made two months ago, though! It's almost like I'm a *real* TLSer these days!

At least one post-hold JS1 has been given out, so it's definitely a possibility. Not sure how common that is, though.

my prediction is close to becoming true.

also, the major soft in my law school app is that i'm sometimes correct in predicting the future.

Just finished my post-hold KB1 about two hours ago. Check in the Held @ Harvard thread back around Feb 15, I believe there was a small wave of post-hold JS1s.
