I've gone over my interview repeatedly and have settled on it going ok--not poorly but not great. Obviously it's probably not possible, but I would love it if an adcom could tell me what they don't like about my application. Part of the frustration is not being sure what's holding me back.

I can't remember hardly anything from mine, only one or two "dumb" things that I said. A friend asked me about it after and I was like "idk, she asked some questions.." and that was as specific as I could remember.

Doubtful. My guess is that dreamerchic is just being annoyingly optimistic.

Barrel of CRABS


Post what you'd like, just take care to not make it sound like you're announcing that JS2's are going out. I think Mort did it best with

¿today?

Only trying to say that your post was carelessly vague. A lot of people less jaded than I might read it, as Trig did, and think things were happening.

ETA: scooped

There is a strict difference between "I think there might be more JS2s today."
and
"More JS2's coming!!!!!!"
