Ok back to reality for one sec:

I got WLd 4/15 - and didn't catch the 4/25 wave. Is that game over? Also, is it worth sending a LOCI with emphasis on what I do outside work and about being a Bostonian?

Now back to TLS dating:

If you'd read the past two pages, these questions would be answered for you.

No one is expecting anyone to read the 40+ pages here, but if you're going to ask a question at least click back a few to see if a question has been answered.

To answer your questions:

1. No one knows, but probably not.

2. No.

She might be waiting to see if another guy she's more interested in will place a deposit for tickets first.

Nope. The text just said:
Will you go out with me?
[ ] Yes
[ ] No
[ ] WL

Normally I am uptight about threads not getting bogged down with people asking the same questions over and over again with utter disregard for the posts just above them and the OP (see: Eich rage in the PS sample thread), but to be fair to this person, about thirty four of the posts on the last two pages were about dating and video games. It's reached a point where I could see someone not wanting to sift through the random conversations to see if somewhere someone said something substantive to answer their particular question.

TL; DR - let's cut em a break

On one hand, it shows that you've been busy and productive with your time. On the other hand, it's nothing to brag about in itself and I wonder if it will lower your attractiveness because it's too prole-ish. ;)

I'm also thinking it would be a nice segue into mentioning some of the larger themes about law school; this job in particular exposes me to a ton of people and it is a position of arbitration.

If you were previously unemployed, then it might be worth an update. However, if you can't spin an entire LOCI out of the experience without it sounding cheesy, you may want to just send an updated resume.


Okay, good. This is good information. I'm a college professor and I just picked up the job to grab some summer money, get new experiences, and keep busy. Just wondering if it'd show initiative or be an excuse to get my app before JS's eyes to communicate interest. I guess everyone is interested in Harvard, but I'd definitely not want to lose out on an opportunity for not seeming interested. Thanks for the advice!

Maybe you should call to let her know her status checker is broken

Now I only count 24 slots remaining. I guess either a lot of people waited to choose their times, or they decided to close off certain timeslots. So there really may not be any more JS1s unless they conduct interviews the week of the 27th.

I'd imagine they were filled by JS1s as opposed to being closed off.

That's what I imagine too, but I didn't expect so many people to wait over a week after getting the invite to sign up. Want to cover all speculative bases.

I think that's a good point. However, the JS1 wave could have been ~100 people, no? A quarter waiting is plausible. I guess, at that rate, it's fair to say maybe they closed off interview slots (maybe only JS or KB conduct them from hereon)..

Given NYU's movement from the WL the past few days my gut says that schools are feeling the pressure to fill their class.

Anecdotally my mom was at a conference with a bunch of administrators / law professors at a TTT in the area and they said that at this point in the cycle things are worse in terms of their pool than last year. Obviously that's just 1 TTT and 1 story but I'd imagine there's a sliver of truth in that for HSCCN down.

I think NYU usually does a WL admit wave around this time every year, but I have to say this wave seemed larger than usual. I think with that large class size, it was inevitable that they would struggle a bit this cycle.

It should be interesting to watch what happens once Harvard makes a move.

If Harvard ever makes a move. Srsly, what a prude.


It's still funny, right?

:(

But I guess if last time you saw 27 and there was a wave, a small wave is possible. I guess it's also possible that a few JS1s went out and no one reported on TLS.
