For the record, I was referring to the poster above my last post. Edited to make it more clear for all of those HLS prospectives who needed it :lol:

Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Snoop is undoubtedly a gunner.


Snoop is more of the type to skip out on every class and smoke flowers instead. Of course, he'll end up at the top of the class. I'm sure many TLSers were this guy in college


Snoop the "HOT" dog!!!!!

So when do you guys think JS1s are going out? I wouldn't be surprised if it were next week.

Has anyone else's status checker reverted back to the previous date it was set to before the "application complete" emails went out yesterday? Mine said 10/10 yesterday and now says 9/27 today.

Clearly the government needs to re-open so that my workload picks up and I stop obsessing about my status checkers!

I received the email yesterday as well, but the date on my status checker never changed.

I'd guess last week of October. That's when it was last year, anyway.

The first wave of JS1s are for those with crazy numbers?


That was the case last year. It's probably just the applicants who breeze through the initial review process without any dissenters, and naturally someone with higher number is likely to be in the camp.

Yeah, my question is when will the first JS1 invite for applicant with sub-25th percentile GPA go out?

Can anyone confirm? One post isn't exactly convincing, but congrats if it's real

Totally fair to be skeptical; I was NOT expecting it this early (plus my credibility isn't high, given that was my very first post).

I submitted the day it opened (offhand I want to say Sept 15), and it registered as complete Sept 30. I received an email confirming that it had gone complete around the same time everyone else on the board did. I can't really offer anything in the way of proof, but I'm sure others will get notification soon and hopefully can confirm that my pants are not, in fact, on fire.

JS1 as well just now!

Wondering what, if anything, this means at chances of admission? Do they increase with an interview or do most people get one?

I called to ask if it's true that interview invites went out today...she said "did you receive an invite?" I said "no." She said "I can't verify that, but if you received an invite, you're welcome to respond to it."
