JS must have a lot of time on her hands, with the spreadsheets and all.

well now we know that ls22 works at a preftigious goldman-type place that allows him to do cutting-edge moneymaking excel work, post nonstop, and access "reputable" sources aka a guy he knows in MA who dropped by the office. when he saw no envelopes going out, he ringed up ls22 and said "yep, supports your theory."

Yep that's me. I just care about $$, make things up, and just make pointless, un-helpful posts non-stop.

I hope you don't find those spreadsheets I spent hours on useful or anything. Hmm, time for more eggnong.

I am now getting a lot of PMs about this, asking me if I was this source. I also have been getting a ton of PMS asking about this topic in general.

The answer to both is that I am in the blind on this and we really are not going to speculate. Apologies but going forward I really can not answer every PM on the topic, it is getting overwhelming and my answer remains the same.

Ask TLS to build you a PM filter that sends auto-responses based on certain pre-determined topics chosen by you.


This is more of a joke, but would be cool if they did that

I'm just waiting for when non-TTTs start sending us holiday cards so we can all start speculating about what it all means.

forgive me if this has been asked, but what defines "highly unique" in the spreadsheet vs. "above average" for softs ? and does a strong soft outweigh a weaker GPA/LSAT combination ?

also, it would appear as though those individuals who interviewed on or before 11/12 but who did not get a JS2 either had a minor C&F issue or had weaker LSAT/GPA combos. .. again sorry if this point has already been made

Is it correct to assume that the general consensus is that everyone who has received a JS1 after the first JS2 wave will receive a JS2 before Christmas? Also, does everyone who had a JS1 get notified by phonecall whether it be admit/deny/waitlist?

I don't think so Pilking76

because if u interviewed too close to the end of December (<2 weeks within the dates when the adcom meets) then you'll probably not hear back in December

i am in that boat :)

also I just want to point out that

http://www.law.harvard.edu/academics/calendar

shows that their Thanksgiving break started Nov 27, so that's why JS pushed out those JS2's on the 25th and 26th

likewise, the calendar shows the law school going on winter break Dec 21

so if there are JS2's coming in December, they'll like come as they did in Nov -- the two days or so before the holiday break, ie Dec 19+20

so if you interviewed two weeks before Dec 19/20, you'll get a JS2 if accepted, if you interviewed too close like Thurs Dec 5/6, two weeks before, then u won't hear back

i say 2 weeks because those who did JS1 on or before 11/12 got JS2's 11/25-11/26, but those who did JS1 on or after 11/13 did not get JS2's yet (so it would appear on the spreadsheet)

also, i should note that judging from the interview calendar, they're holding interviews through out the end of december... 12/18, 12/19, 12/20

it is possible they may not conduct JS2's until January ...

I'd be shocked if they waited until 2014. Last year they were calling people right up to Christmas break, and it seemed like they wanted to get the good news out to as many people as possible before the holidays. I bet anyone who interviewed even this past week is fair game for a js2 before Christmas

When was the last day you could register for JS1 before winter break?
