So, for what that's worth.


That makes sense. So JS2's on Friday/Monday are possible.


and hopefully JS1s :|


Yes those too!

I thought someone mentioned earlier that Friday was free of interviews.

Hi all- been a super busy day today.

The wait goes on... Obviously past cycles aren't a good indicator anymore but I still would be shocked if we didn't have two days (or one very very busy one) before Jan....

I'm betting you guys will be getting some great news on two separate days of calling. If we look at it from a numbers perspective, HLS admitted over 100 students thus far in only 2 days of calls (referencing the current number of members in the fb group, and obviously some admits haven't joined the group). I'd guess they'll admit at least that many students if not more this time around due to the additional weeks of JS1s that have happened since the last wave.

Good luck to everyone! This thread is going to be crazy the next few days...

The next question will be what JS1 date they stop at.

I assume anyone doing their JS1 this week will not get a JS2 until some time late January?

Never know. There have been some quick turnarounds (even 1 day turnarounds?)

?? Doesn't it mean there's a fair chance for a wave of JS1s this week? :|
Or are they just unclaimed spots from the last wave?

I gave up expecting anything before Christmas just so I could be surprised.

Unrelated note: " 'if only if only' the woodpecker sighs 'the bark on the tree was as soft as the skies'" has been stuck in my head all morning.

That was exactly what I thought of when I first read your post :)
