Perhaps. I think it's an odd practice to do high lsats first than move down. Or "good" numbers then "urm". Like, inevitably, the pool will be mixed. But maybe they really do have "piles".
it's not an odd practice if your first concern is medians and your second is an interesting class.

It just makes things easier - rather than juggle multiple variables at once.

Wild speculation: It seems like the JS1bs that occurred today were all pretty early in the day (mine was squarely in the morning), and the JS1bs that occurred yesterday were afternoon/late afternoon. So, like, OBVIOUSLY, what happened was that they figured out who they were gonna send JS1bs out to only about the time they started sending them yesterday, and because there wasn't enough time left in the day, finished up this morning. In their ideal world everyone would've gotten theirs yesterday, with the planned JS2s coming out Friday. For reasons.

IT SOUNDS PLAUSIBLE IN MY HEAD.

I'm going to start referring to mine as a KB1B just to confuse everyone.

The fact that I even thought that much about it shows that I've completely gone off the deep end.

Prediction: admissions took the day off to have a four day weekend and absolutely nothing will happen today.

Nope! Too cute! Pocket Nostradamus here thinks he knows the future. Hmmm. Interesting. Because, you see, no one knows the future except me, Mentok, the Mind Taker!

I think it's odd. However, it bodes well for some movement tomorrow.

And thanks mickey. I'll still binge eat but thanks.


Save the binge eating for our fall party.

So, are we predicting any more JS1bs today? Or a spillover of this into next week? Anyone have any inside info based on JS1b/JS2 phone comments?
