If you miss the call, does anyone know if they call back later, or do they just leave a voicemail?

If you miss the call, they reject you.

If i get a call, I'd be so excited my phone was ringing with a boston phone number that I'd probably forget to pick up. :shock:

Am I the only one who, if fortunate enough to get a JS2, has seriously considered not answering the phone so that there is a recorded message/email instead of just the brief conversation? :P

Haha, I've thought about a theoretical JS2 for too long to switch it up now. And there will be much info that comes after the phone call! :)

Because we already weeded out all the people with scores that weren't worth applying with.

For anyone who is wondering, last year acceptance calls started about two and half hours later than the time it is now, but on Tuesday.

Answer the phone. You will remember it for a lifetime and speaking to Jessica is always a pleasure.

I just got a JS1, and I have to say I am pretty surprised. I am below 25th on GPA and at the 50th LSAT. Have they just been giving out a lot more interviews this year or do I actually have a shot? I want to keep my expectations in check...

JS1's going out today? I think this means that there will not be JS2's.

It must be kind of fun for the people in the HLS Admissions Office to read all the predictions and speculations on here.
