Anyone watching Catching Fire this week or the next? Anyone watch it at all? It's got high ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, but I've always been more of a Battle Royale person and cannot figure out whether I should jump on the Hunger Games bandwagon or not.

edit: As I am mostly a lurker in these forums, do let me know if it's improper of me to ask non-HLS questions. I just thought it'd be a nice break from the seemingly endless waves of stress.


Have you been to the Lounge?


It's not as scary as you think :roll:

I'll probably post two acceptances as well, the first one and the one I plan on accepting (assuming they're different). This seems like a good balance between coming off as braggy and sharing good news.

Unrelated: I got a JS1 with both GPA and LSAT at or below the 25th percentiles. For those of you out there with less impressive numbers but strong softs, it seems like it's still possible to have a horse in this race.


URM?


I'm a vet. Does that count as URM?


No, a URM is only Mexicans, Native Americans, Blacks, and Puerto Ricans. being a vet is a nice soft though


I disagree with this, in regards to harvard, at least. See generally my profile.

Also, vets are usually nontraditional

If only if only. I think it would be seen as a move of desperation so they will wait.

Don't worry, it killed my dreams just like it killed yours. I wish they had to let us know yes or no by Christmas.

Anyone send a thank you email after interviewing? I never thought it was important but according to Spivey it may reflect negatively on us if we don't.

Most people seem to have said no to this. I'd ask KB though!

I hope the first JS2 wave includes those who interviewed in the past week. Waiting on HLS is tough!
