Have there been JS2s past 5 PM EST in the past? I feel like I've read about that before, or am I completely wrong?

I think there have been a smattering of them, but not that many. I wouldn't hold out hope for today, but you never know.

I am clinging to my sanity by a thread at this point, so maybe some hope would do me good.

There have, but I think they started earlier.

JS2s will come soon guys.

I think I was the first person on TLS to report a call the day I got my JS2, and I got my call around 5:30 PM EST. It's possible they started sooner, but I doubt it was much sooner.

You never know. YOU NEVER KNOW. JS2s could come at any moment. They could even come at 2AM in the morning. Not that I've been staying up or anything. Ha ha ha. Ha. Image

LOL. Dude you should be admitted based solely off the creativity/relevancy of your pic skills. On another note... if no JS2s this afternoon, then DEFINITELY tomorrow!!! (99%????). I think yes.

Have we established any correlation between date of JS1 and these recent WL waves?

I feel like they haven't gotten to the mid-March JS1s yet. Which is why I would not be that surprised with a WL in my very near future.

I still haven't gone complete :shock:

Was hoping that the one (only) upside to a late application would be less waiting. Guess not!

Very late – last week of Feb. So certainly not an unheard of wait time, I was just being selfish and hoping that they'd be getting to it more quickly now that we're at the business end of things.

Anyway, I realise I have no right to complain given some of the other wait times, but figured I'd give my update. Hope to see some better news for others on here soon!

Man, I hope so :? I'm beginning to wonder if the class is full and the best those of us left can hope for is a waitlist...

ETA: ...but I refuse to give up hope!

No no no don't think this way!

part of me thinks a ding/waitlist would be convenient as it would cement NYC as my place to be... don't listen to my insanity JS.

No! I certainly hope not! The last acceptance wave was early March. I wasn't invited to interview until mid-March. I don't think they would issue a batch of JS1s if they knew there wasn't any room left in the class. I hope they weren't thinking they would do so just to add to the WL. I think there will be JS2s! Perhaps not for me, but definitely for some people! *fingers crossed*

They could def have just added you to the WL without an interview if they wanted to - you're right, there are still straight JS2's out there (somewhere).

Maybe tomorrow, my fellow surviving waiters :D It seems like Harvard hasn't given out many JS2s on Mondays this year, so we could be next up.

Dinged yesterday late afternoon. Submitted early Nov, complete mid Nov, JS0. LSAT close to 75th, GPA well under 25th. Above average softs with an HLS connection, but I suppose my GPA was just too much to handle! In the end, I'm neither surprised nor dismayed. Cycle over!

There's no day like today! It's beautiful in NYC and I'm ready for that JS2!
