Wow.

Congrats to the JS1s.

And keep in mind KB's not doing the interviews, so I have no idea whether the exact questions I posted last year will be recycled. Could probably use this entire thread to prepare.

Hope y'all do better than I did. Good luck!





And thanks for calling me legendary, Specs. 8)

I would take it as a very good sign. I don't think most are getting them this early. I didn't.

For you lucky JS1ers, what does your status checker say? Still complete or under review? I guess this question could apply to everyone, really.

Anyone here consider themselves a grammarian? I really want to submit but I'm worried that my PS has grammatical errors that I'm not catching. Let me know if you're interested. I guarantee it will be a unique PS

JS1! My numbers aren't really autoadmit, so I wonder if they're employing a different interview strategy this cycle, given the early timing. Perhaps casting an even wider net?

JS1!! So happy right now, too happy to schedule a time until I calm down a bit so I can think about it rationally. For posterity: applied 9/15, got the complete email 2 or so weeks ago :D

Any JS1s who went complete on or after 10/11?

If not I can cling to my fragile hopes!

Did everyone else get e-mails when they went complete? I didn't get one... Maybe I should call.

Your application is ridiculous (and the only js1 with visible numbers). Should I assume all the other js1s are equally amazing?

It took people 2 weeks after going complete to get the e-mail.

Is everyone receiving invites at the same time, or are people posting soon after receiving the email?

Seems like the latter. Sounds like the emails started going out yesterday afternoon and are continuing today, but that's just a guess.

I was hoping I'd be able to relax, but I guess not.

Yup, email invites are going out today. I got my JS1 this morning after thinking I'd missed the cut last night haha. Submitted 9/15, went complete end of September.

I wonder if we can get a consensus if this is more of the "autoadmit" batch of JS1s or just early submitters :P

If the JS1s all post their numbers, I imagine we could do that for you.

I was between 50th and 75th percentile for GPA (3.88 - 3.95) and LSAT (173 - 175).
