Did anyone send a thank you email or letter after your interview? Also, what email do you send it to? Don't know where to find the individual emails for each person and sending it to the general admissions email seems kinda awkward..

I asked this on the last page after seeing Spivey's response to you, and the answer was the most people don't send one. I have also never seen any examples on here of posters sending anything of that nature following their JS1.

Is anyone who was WL -> Interview -> Rejected last year applying again this year?

If so, we're in the same boat together. Have you, or do you plan to re-take LSAT? I'm applying with the same numbers...

Ha, the funny thing is that I almost did the same thing as you. Just when I was about to ask, I saw the 11/07

Just went complete. That took forever. I got the received application e-mail on 11/12 and already had all my LORs and transcripts in before I even applied...

Doesn't seem like JS1 waves are done based on when people go complete. I just spoke with someone that got a JS1, who went complete mid-October. Seems to be pretty random... once you are complete it could come at any time.

This is very helpful as someone who also went complete on the seventh.

I'm a little worried about the length of my personal statement. I realized today that I was stupid and didn't read the guidelines closely. It's about 2 3/4 pages, though it would have been around 2 1/4 if I had been smart and put it in size 11 font.

How much do you think this will actually affect their decision? My stats are 173/4.0, and I received a JS1 on 11/12, which was only a few days after my application went complete, so I'm hoping that's a good sign that they're not too hung up about it.

I went complete on 11/14 so I'm starting to get a little bit antsy.

So they send out these e-mails at the same time, and probably once a day correct?

Way too soon to worry. I'm in a similar boat, a few days before that. Only been a week!!

If you got a JS1, they're already willing to admit you
