I'm convinced enought to panic about it.

And w/r/t the GPA conversation, I had the top GPA in my major and I'm still below Harvard's 25th GPA.

lol its a good sign that JS2's are coming out already (Wednesday before break!)

it means there are SO MANY JS2's about to come out tomorrow and/or Friday that JS had to start early or she wouldn't be able to get all the calls out before Saturday !

Congrats to nep! Do JS1s usually come in waves, or are they individual?

as in should I assume I've missed out on something specific, or just go back to feeling vaguely miserable about the lack of JS1

Usually waves lasting a couple days.

Edit: Sorry I misread I thought you were asking about JS2s.

I got my JS1 about 3 hours after 2 other TLSers reported theirs.

No prob - I'm trying to figure out if they send emails in batches or individually - like, does lack of email at the time nep got one mean I wasn't selected in this pass by the committee, or does it mean nothing in particular except that this exercise continues?

Based on jingo's comment, I'm hoping it's the latter.

I think JS1's are a little more random/arbitrary as far as timing. If you look at the spreadsheet the dates for JS1 requests are pretty scattered.

I really hope a few JS1s trickle in among all the JS2s this week. I'm sure it couldn't be scheduled until after January, but at least I'd know it was coming instead of suffering through silence.

Interesting. So that's prior to the cutoff from the last wave (11/12). I guess that means if you didn't hear during the last wave and your JS1 was before that date, don't lose hope.

Isn't that JS1 offer as opposed to actual JS1 date though?
