They don't seem to do JS1bs after hours, and I don't think there's any more JS2s to do today since all the JS1bs from yesterday seem to have been admitted.


I thought Gertrude got JS1b yesterday.

JS2. Oh my god I can't believe this is actually happening. 8 months of waiting was so worth it.

170/4

Held --> WL --> KB1 (4/12 invite) --> KB1b (5/21) --> JS2 (5/22)

Lol, I saw that on the spreadsheet and was wondering where your post was.

Congrats! :)

ETA: Wow, has it been 8 months already?

Congrats to all the JS2! huge day, and great hope to future applicants that Harvard WL is in no way a lost cause.

When Lavitz gets his long awaited JS2, it will be a TLS PHENOMENON!

So if the estimate is that TLS/LSN represents about 1/7 of the entire wait-listed pool, is it safe to say ruogly +-50 people have been admitted off the wait-list today?

Is there something I'm not understanding about why a 178/3.8 hasn't been admitted yet?

Including or not including today's jsb1s? Cuz were pretty sure those will become js2s tmrw.

What day will they stop giving out jsb1s? Should we lose hope on Friday? Or earlier

Hey ya'll sorry I was on a mountain all day with no internet but I got the call from JS at 3pm(eastern)!
Applied early Jan, JS1 on 3/21, WL 4/15, JS1-b yesterday.

Also I sent an LOCI right after I was WLed with a new job that I started (in production so completely non-law related) since it was pretty clear from my JS1 that being a K-JD and lack of full time WE was an issue. I think if you have a clear weakness that you can show improvement on definitely send an LOCI even if the update seems kind of mundane. Hope this helps future applicants and WLers!


Congrats to all fellow JS2s today and future JS2s tomorrow!

People keep pming me to ask if anyone has pmed me yet to report a JS1b that didn't get a JS2. It scares me just a tad every time I see "1 new message"...

Not including today's JS1B's. If you count those the total is up to 15. I think this is about the right time to lose hope. Especially if you look at stats from past years. I think tomorrow will be the end of the JS2 wave. After that I think chances drop dramatically... sigh. :(

I think there might be another tiny wave of JS2s/JS1Bs tomorrow. But once the number of admits hits 20 or so I think it's a lost cause if one is not included. I wonder when they will send the rejection wave after that? I JUST WANT CLOSURE!

It's probably a combination of reasons which would be difficult to replicate. Interview, softs, undergrad, "passion", etc.

Besides, you're above both medians so I'm sure you'll be fine.

I thought all signs pointed to a larger WL js2 wave than in the past. Oh well. I agree with Aussie wanting some closure. It's a shame to leave so many people who were interviewed post WL hanging

I think he means initial JS2 wave. Because they interviewed a ton of people up front, there should be one large wave of JS2s instead of several smaller waves over a period of a few weeks.

Just logged on today to see the movement - congrats to all the JS2s!! After getting to know a bunch of you over the past few months I can't stop checking this thread, and I've been pretty excitedly waiting for this. I hope to see plenty more tomorrow and into the next week, especially for my bros. Fingers crossed for you all and for many many more happy phone calls!

Two questions:

WL dings historically don't happen, do they?

Is there going to be a trickle or this week is it?
