Any advice on how to get a JS1 from the WL, other than sending LOCI's?

As a fellow person waiting for a JS1, there's nothing we can do. In all honesty, get yourself hyped about whereever you'll be going otherwise because with the exception of a lucky few over the summer, it probably ain't happening for us.

It's hard to not be disappointed, but it's all relative. Even going to a lower T14 put you in a better position than 95% of other law students.

Question:

When I got waitlisted I sent in the fact that I'm willing to wait till the first day at Columbia to go to Harvard. I had a KB1 and haven't done anything since.

Is there anything else that would be recommended to send in? An official LOCI? Past work? (I had a play selected to be presented for my school that I wrote as part of a class...) A really tasty pie?

General advice in these parts is .. no.

Unless you have a major update don't loci just to remind them you're into it.

I make amazing homemade ice cream. Wanna send our goodies together? Teaming up might be a strategy they are not used to and would appreciate...

Homemade apple pie with a scoop of homemade vanilla bean ice cream might seriously have some impact.

JS1b!!!!!!!!!! Still in shock! (Within the last hour) Same agenda as others reported (Assessing interest in accepting an offer). Call lasted about 2 min.

JS1 (mid-April) ---> WL (April 22) ---> JS1b

P.S. So glad I have something to contribute to the speculative effort.

Congrats!

Looks like the js1b's continue today. Starting earlier than before. Maybe that means there is a lot to do today.

What's protocol if you miss a JB1b? Do you fervently call back swearing allegiance or do you get in anyway?

Anyone know the timeline they expect you to accept/deposit if offered? Is a visit even an option this late in the game?

You want to visit between your JS1b and JS2? :lol:

Obviously! You are the guest of honor. I am only hosting it at Columbia because that is where I plan on attending, but everyone that has gone through the pain of this thread is very welcome!

I actually did mist my JS1b because I was in the shower.

Yes. Very much yes.
