Bumping the spreadsheet for the newly held and for those who saw movement today. If you could update the spreadsheet that will give the rest of us a better idea where we stand, thanks!

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... 2LXc#gid=0

Column I is for Held --> JS1 and there's also columns for those who got decisions today.

Someone tell me how dumb it would be to submit another LoR. In my current state of "panic, I want to ask an HYS alum, or an HYS student (law class and prof has a blanket rule about having his TAs do LoRs for undergraduates). Save me from myself.

Based on some of the posts, you should hold off on additional LORs. I would do the same thing too. If I had any major updates to the application, I would turn them in.

Edit: Okay, in this thread.

best feeling in the world and truly a dream come true. Never let cynical sourpusses (like that AZ guy) tell you there is no hope for holds or serial retakers - they're full of it

C-167-171, 4

1/3 sent
1/15 complete
2/8 JS1
2/22 held
3/29 JS2

(also just might be just the alcohol speaking but did any other admits today get an email or any sort of official indication? i've woken up from this dream many times before... :wink: )



quoted my post from the applicants thread. I love you guys all. please ignore anything i have ever said and KEEP THE FAITH. keep trucking and there is plenty of good news ahead in this thread. I will be following you guys closely. Feel free to PM for details, but I used both multiple LORs and a LOCI while I was held and somehow it worked out

wert and az, a sincere congratulations to you guys and the rest of the JS2s today. I'm really happy for you all, you deserve it.

As for me, this makes three rounds of JS2s since my KB1 w/ no word. Don't have to be a genius to see where this is going.

Best of luck to you all at HLS.

Just submitted a LOCI with updates on:
-Receipt of St. Ignatius of Loyola Campus Ministry Award
-Induction into Alpha Sigma Nu
-Induction into Who's Who
-Completion of team-best mock trial season (I run team)
-Completion of All-College Honors Thesis on Supreme Court
-Upcoming service trip to El Salvador

Decided to submit before posting, so y'all couldn't talk me out of it.

So now, thoughts? Good decision?

No reason to talk you out LOCI; if you were held, they asked for an update.

With that many items though, did you get to give them all a good explanation?

I explained what they all are, but didn't go into great detail about any of them.

Same here. I had my JS1 back in mid-February, so in my mind I'm already dinged.

Got in the hold pool 2 weeks ago but just added myself. Not looking good but I do seem to be in an alright position relative to some other holds.

Well, here's hoping.

Hey Everyone...first time posting ITT. Put on hold 3/22 without being offered JS1. Complete 1/7 I'm guessing that means I have slim to zero chance of moving forward, right?

Good luck to everyone!
