Guessing?


paglababa is clearly JS

Even better plot twist: ls22 is JS and the real motive behind the spreadsheets was to stay apprised of what other schools are up to this cycle.

If there is a wave of JS2s this week, does that mean we should expect a wave or at least an abundance of JS1s (and rejections) in the coming weeks?
I feel that a 12/10 file completion should have heard for hold/rejection/JS1 by now.

12/10? No way. You need to wait longer!

That said, I kind of think the end of this week and beginning of next will see both a round of waitlists/rejects and a round of JS2s.

I should have heard by now because I'm PARANOID and schools should take PARANOIA into account.

Sometimes I feel like I live in my own little admissions fantasyland.

+!

Did you check the "I'm Paranoid and need priority notification" box on the application? If you didn't submit your doctor/astrologer's note that could also hold it up. :)

Is it only JS doing the interviews this year or have other people from the office conducted them as well?

You should be added later today.

No way to know who you'll be interviewing with until they pop up. As to "style," I'll leave that up to others to answer. I haven't seen much on differences between interviewers, and that's possibly because the differences aren't that significant.


Think bom answered that one already

I also was admitted with a 172. My score was somehow changed to 176 on the spreadsheet, I've changed it back now.

Someone tried to sort the spreadsheet by gender and screwed it all up. I already PM'd LS22 about reverting it.

Do not sort the spreadsheet !! Download first, then sort your own copy.

I wish people who don't know how to sort/filter would quit sorting/filtering lol. Unfortunately I am swamped with actual work (catching up from the holidays) so I can't get to it tonight. But I started a post calling for help, so if anyone is interested see my post in the A/D/W forum.

Hey folks. I was looking through the revision history and it looks like things went really awry (like people's LSAT scores getting changed) yesterday afternoon. I have reversed the spreadsheet to as it was Jan 6, 12:56 PM PT. If you added yourself to the spreadsheeet or made any updates in the last 36 hours-ish, you'll have to re-update those again. Sorry for the inconvenience

all fixed now :D
the only thing left to audit on this sheet is JS1 dates - don't know why "Most recent JS1 date to receive JS2" is returning a date in the future :?
