checking in way late, here, but I'm waiting on a decision and I have some questions about lingo around here!

Can someone explain what JS1 and JS2 mean? how many date changes are typical? Do acceptances come by call or email?

I realize that people have probably asked these questions a lot, but this thread is 400 pages and ain't nobody got time for that! =]


P.S. it's not a puppy, but look at this cute thing:

JS1 = interview invite/interview
JS2 = acceptance notification, usually done by phone with the exception of certain internationals

The status checker doesn't change between going complete and a decision.

Wait, am I a lurker now or was that just a non-sequitur?

T, I think you might be getting trolled by your friends.
