What's with the 3 different batches batches/waves of WL->JS1?
What does it mean that some people received the interview invite that Tuesday (1-2 days after being WL-ed), some that same Friday and some just late last week?
My guess is they're going by alphabetical order.
I take that back.
They threw the applications in the air and whichever ones landed on the desk got the interview invites earlier. Those that landed out the window have yet to get a JS1. :p
I don't have an answer to this, but I will add that I missed the first wave of WL->JS1 because I had not accepted their WL offer when the JS1 invites went out (my wife and I were still discussing whether we had it in us to let this drag on a few more months). I sent in my WL acceptance the day after the first JS1s and was offered a JS1 in the second wave. Perhaps some of the staggering is due to people trickling onto the wait list after sitting on their 4/5 offers?
I doubt that this situation is representative of many, but it may account for a bit of it... or none of it. Who knows?
