Maybe no one on TLS got in

No one on TLS or LSN? Then the wave would have statistically had to be fewer than seven admits, since we're tracking on average one in seven. If that happened yesterday, there would still be a few hundred calls to make...

How long do you think it will take them to make all the calls? Do you think they will be able to do them all in one day or will it be over the course of several days? If I am anxious now, I can't imagine how it will be when the first call is reported here and the rest of us are just waiting for them to get to our name on the list. I would much prefer it to be via email so we can all find out at roughly the same time.

This is an irrational fear that I have as well.

Although I would love to be that first guy who calls GREY and then everyone panics.

I haven't decided which wait is worse: LSAT scores or JS2s. At least you know you'll get an LSAT score.

At least I had some certainty that my LSAT was going to be disappointing. I have no way to gauge what HLS admissions are thinking (except probably that my LSAT is disappointing.)

I have to disagree with y'all. LSAT was worse because I had no idea what I was going to get. At least now I can make statistical predictions.

LSAT October 2012 was PARTICULARLY bad due to the hurricane delay and LSAC closure. Ridiculous drama. I'll never forget it.

that's how I found TLS in the first place, actually

At least waiting on JS2 you know that you're already in to a bunch of amazing T14 schools, so the stakes are much lower. Waiting on LSAT you don't know shit. You could have missed a scantron bubble on question 14 and get a 155, blowing all chances at a decent law school. so much worse.

JS2 wait is worse, IMO.

Although I had no idea what I was going to get, after a while I kinda got thinking that the score is unlikely to be that good and thought 'well, maybe law school is not for me after all'.

Here you know that you have a tangible chance to get in, so that makes it much worse.

My opinion of the day: softs matter MORE on waitlist.

Thoughts?
