Did you just receive a JS1 today? That would be the first indication that today is mixed bag, if I'm not mistaken.

you don't really prep for it beyond going over your application materials (resume and PS), thinking about your answer to questions like why law and why harvard, and preparing a couple of questions to ask JS/LG/DE/AT (https://blogs.law.harvard.edu/admission ... view-team/)

Does the status checker change from Complete to anything once the decision is rendered?

Whenever my email account says I have a new email, my heart sinks. And then I realize it's Groupon.

Nah I have it coming up soon. Haven't done an interview this cycle so don't really know what to expect.

Random question and sorry if it's already been asked, but who/what is in the Sender field for the ding emails? Is it just the same jdadmiss email address that sent the completion notification / JS1 invite?

ETA: Whoops, didn't read the "please don't quote part"

CONGRATS! guys, it looks like today is a mixed bag! *heart palpitations*

So sorry to hear about all the dings -- you all should still be proud for making it this far into the game! Clearly, there is bigger and better in store for you :)

And congrats to the JS2 (and the many that are sure to trickle in)...that's amazing!!!

I wonder in what order they do JS2s...alphabetical? By interviewer?
