If we were to see action 5/13, we would also have to see action the week of 5/20 since they won't have finished the scheduled JS1s by the 13th. Think we'll see a two-part wave?

There's bound to be a 2nd wave - I just don't see them making folks wait for so long (some had JS1s as early as beginning of April); after all not everyone is on TLS and not everyone knows there are waves 'n' stuff (and especially that these waves haven't happened by now), so it only makes sense that they ease tension for at least some of the applicants.

I still think it's more likely the action won't happen until the 20th.

Yeah, it's more consistent with the timeframe they've told people. Plus they've shown that they have no problems making people wait if they deem it necessary.



Anyway, how's everyone planning to react if they get a JS2?

Jump up and down.
Find a hot girl to make out with.
Drink.
Sleep.
Decide on taking a full-ride at UT v. full-tuition at H.

Not necessarily in that order.

My experimental RC during the Dec LSAT was pretty much the same. I instantly knew such atrocity can not be real.

Why would KB have said to multiple interviewees that decisions wouldn't be coming until the end of the month if decisions were coming in the middle of the month?

Edit: i'm really hoping for this monday too, but i'm not getting my hopes up

People of authority never make statements to cover their asses?

I mean, what KB and JS say about dates COULD be true but it also could just be a generic "check back by the end of the month" to give themselves wiggle room. The 2010 /11 Monday, May week 2 dates is revealing. I'd say this Monday or the next.

What % of the current WL JS1's do you guys want to guess will be accepted ?

These are the first reports of post-WL JS2s. Disclaimer: you will be severely disheartened if you click.


So awesome reading all those folks' "i got in" posts. Hope that's what this thread looks like in a few days.

What did she tell you again? "After May 1st"?

Because technically the 20th is still "after May 1st" so it's not like they've been giving conflicting information. Also, maybe they decided to push back the date after you already had your interview.

Or they're telling people different things because they're giving out JS2s on the 13th to people who interviewed earlier. I still only give it a 10% chance though.

If no JS2 on Monday, then I'm sending a LOCI.

Anyone who can give it a look tomorrow, or Monday?

60%

My logic: 60 is a nice, big number

Is it bad to be wl no js1 at this point in the game or too early to tell?
