Big wave May, small wave June, tiny trickle July/August.

Therefore, there is hope!
Not to rain on your parade, but it's possible that we've seen the May and June waves that you describe happen at the same time. There were a handful fo individuals admitted with low numbers, but strong softs in the last wave.
But here's a question to speculate on: are JS1s over i.e. will the remaining admits (even through august) come from those already interviewed?
Who were the people with lower stats? Everyone on the gdoc has at least one 75th and the only URM reporting a JS1b hasn't confirmed a JS2 or her/his existence. There also haven't been any other URMs to report calls and no URMs have been added to the fb group (when I counted the admits yesterday I looked and didn't see any). The URM forum hasn't picked up on any activity either. Soooo, if you don't mind me asking, where/how did you get this info? If they aren't public, do you think you could PM me the info? Thanks!
I should've clarified my definition of "lower numbers." There were a handful admitted with +75% GPAs, but those folks also had LSATs below the 25th. I consider anyone with something below 25th as having "lower numbers." URMs are their own category and totally unpredictable, but even then, URM admits below both 25th are going to have to come with substantial
softs. I think if there's a June trickle, it's going to be mostly URMs with at least one of LSAT/GPA that hovers around median or slightly below.
I don't have a crystal ball, so your guess is as good as mine. But I'm predicting that beyond some URMs in June and an August trickle, we're done here. The JS1bs really altered things because the yield rate on WLs is probably going to be as high as 95%. HLS knew how many spots they needed to fill and extended offers to people who were 100% on Harvard if admitted.
