Though this is probably true, there are slots on the 4th and 5th of December. Get'em while they're hot!

Had my JS1 today!!!!


Went really well - for any of your worried about it, the conversation is super casual and you get to talk about what you love doing. PM if you'd like any details, two of the previous posters here helped me out and I'd love to do the same for others.

Checking in! been a lurker for a while, finally gave in and made a profile. Do you guys think they're giving out more interviews this year than the 1,200 last year, since there are 4 ppl interviewing now?

I'm pretty sure they only do people who had early js1s in the first wave of js2s. Not to be a downer but at least you can relax for a bit.

I know this is probably staring me in the face and in my ignorance I am missing it, but beyond the Thanksgiving JS2s is there any sort of pattern to them (JS2s)? I wonder if having JS1s the week of Thanksgiving will throw things off any.

source?

I just read back through last year's thread and I think I just made that up. My bad. The confusing part is that it feels like more js1s have gone out before the first batch of js2s than last year (early start on js1 and late start on js2).

Fwiw last year was some js2s on Tuesday and more on Wednesday.

They are probably just expanding the amount of interviews they are doing. If a jokester like me can get a JS1 with subpar numbers then it seems they will interview just about anyone.

Seen a few people predict Monday. I don't have enough knowledge of the issue to be confident either way.

Note: I replaced the spreadsheet we had with the one that lawschool22 made, with the handy and useful analytics. Thanks so much, lawschool22! Here is a link to the new sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... sp=sharing

If you haven't yet put your stats, please do so! Thanks all! :)

Holy &%(#ing $h*t, next week will bring JS2s.

Then again, hearing back early from Harvard could make the rest of the cycle a breeze.
