The reason why I think I'll have a decision in December even though I went complete on like Tuesday.

The October test-takers really bring a new vibe to this thread.

I'm glad we're giving JS so many reasons to autoding us all ;)

Complete three weeks? There are people who went complete over a month ago and just received JS1s. Don't fret yet.

Is there any anecdotal evidence of people getting rejected from T6 schools because of their TLS posting history? And if so, how much shitpoasting did it take? I'm assuming it has to be like Crestor posting bad and not like average October waiter megaposter bad for them to really put it into consideration.

Yes. They stop sharing contact information with you... so basically remove you from thier contact list.

I felt the same way, it took me something like five weeks to get my JS1. Same for quite a few people in this thread. There's hope!

on the subject of HLS deleting you as a skype contact:

do they invite you to be a contact immediately before they call you? or is it as soon as you schedule (i.e. as long as 1-2 weeks before they actually call you)?

just asking because I changed my skype's privacy settings when I was on a public computer a few weeks ago and I may have disabled allowing others to add you. I've since reenabled it, but I don't know if I've already missed the invite.

They sent me the invite about 24 hours before my interview. I'm not sure if that has been the norm, though

I see I'm not the only ninja editor. Someone had +1'ed this quote and then deleted it lol.

But yea, that seems to be the protocol.

I've been thinking that a lot lately, which makes me feel whiny and sad.

Had my JS1 last week if anyone wants any info. It was not with JS and mostly went along the lines of why law and resume questions. Overall it was very pleasant and I felt very confident when it was over.

Can be days prior or day of, depends on what they feel like. Likely day of your interview they will try to re-find you if it didn't work the first time around.

Soooo I had my JS1 this week. I'm 99% sure my JS1 was less considering me as an applicant, and more filling their "We interviewed 1200 applicants!" quota.

It was fun having hope while it lasted..
