For those fortunate souls with JS2's in their pockets, I've created an admitted students thread here: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=220470&p=7272141#p7272141

Congrats to everyone accepted over the past two days! Wish I could be in your boat! Just had my JS1 today and it really took me by surprise. My interviewer asked what I would do with the time if a law school wanted me to take a few years off after college to get some experience.

Seems a bit strange for them to interview me (esp since I'm a pretty sub-par applicant) if they just wanted me to reapply after getting work experience. Overall, feeling pretty unsure about it.

And congrats to the most recent JS2s!!!!!!



Yeah, I'm going to as well. When did you go complete, jingosaur? I went complete 11/7, and have yet to hear anything... Starting to expect a ding...

FWIW, apparently 75% of those on the spreadsheet have received JS1s (63 people), and if about 67% of those receive JS2s, we'd expect about 42.21 net admits. We're standing at 38 accepted right now, and they haven't even really gotten to all the mid-late november people...talk about an unrepresentative sample (in a good way!)...way to go TLS! :)

Can we add a gender column to the spreadsheet? I'm just curious to see if any patterns emerge.

Just to help shed some light for those worrying about getting a JS2, I have kept track of all the reported JS1s ITT since they started. Of the 35 who reported receiving an invite through 10/30, 29 have reported back with JS2s.

Of the 22 who reported receiving a JS1 in November thus far, 3 have reported back with JS2s. I would say it is safe to assume that their are many JS2s to come. Whether they will be between now and tomorrow, I have no idea. But I am sure that they will come soon!

Also note that there were at least 7 people reporting JS2s who didn't originally report their JS1 ITT, so I'm not sure when they had their JS1.

hth! (especially apple, citrus, and lucky)

Thanks so much! This is very helpful and I appreciate you doing it! Sorry if my neuroticism is overbearing (it is), I have just had my hopes up all day, even though my Js1 was recent. Big congrats to those who have gotten in.

Someone had filtered the spreadsheet and left it filtered, so all of the unfilled cells disappeared. It should be fixed now.
