Initially I thought I had a strong shot since I applied after the deadline and they still WLed me. I did check the spreadsheet earlier but wondered if there were any new rounds of interviews. Do you think because I responded Apr 19 and the rounds were made the 25th could be a reason I had no JS1, or do strong candidates get invited right away for an interview?


Hit the "quote" button under the post you want to refer to.

Well, I would consider it a fairly good sign that you applied so late and still got a WL offer.

If there have been any new JS1 offers, none of those have been reported on TLS, but that's unlikely.

Your late response to the deadline could be a factor. Maybe if you responded immediately you would have gotten the April 25 offer, I have no idea. Either way it is irrelevant.


You are right, and thanks for the help!!

Those would be the elusive JS1bs, reserved for those people who were waitlisted after already having an interview. It appears they're not doing that this year.


Ah, that's too bad. Not that I thought my interview went badly, but as it was directed around my resume, I felt like I was just going "blahblahblah science, blahblahblah research" when I definitely have other stuff going on, but felt I can off as very 1-dimensional and didn't really have any opportunity to talk about anything else (she didn't even give me one of those "anything else you wnt to add?" type questions at the end). ah well, just gotta wait this out now :/



+1.
I thiught I was the only one. My interview was the worst I have ever done in an interview and I'm usually pretty good at that.
Then again, w my low last score and non urm status (tho I am a M...but I didn't put that down in my app and I'm not sure she could tellwen she saw me during the interview), I'm not even sure why I'm still lurking here. Apparently they're still looking for top lsat scorers

All this JS1-->JS2 talk makes me feel like I'm the only one who didn't get an invite to this party.

Looks like Lavitz was right! Can we assume that today is, in fact, NOT the day?

It's 5:30 PM EST. There's no way an entire wave would start this late.

Yup, that's what I figured. On to catching up on all the work I wasn't doing earlier!

Seriously. I'm with you though, I think it'll be next week--solely because Harvard wants me to slip into a mild depression while in wait.

I'm presently alone in a city that is not mine and I have tomorrow off. I want to keep my mind off the potential of the evening hours by getting drunk alone in my Hilton hotel room as early in the day as possible, but then if I got JS2'd I would probably answer the call drunk which may not be preferable...

Hopefully we will hear this week. $1600 is a lot of money to lose!

Dalai lama Lavitz says it could be any day this week.

and precedent is BEFORE memorial day so my bet is this week.
