I don't have any substantive thing to say in this post, but I wanted to make sure I got a post in on page 180.

Congrats to all the JS1s today!!

Does a wave of JS1s usually mean no decisions go out that day?

(shameless page 180 post)

Yeah, that's what I've noticed, but let's wait for LS22's statistical analysis before we really get our hopes up.

Yeah, that's what I've noticed, but let's wait for LS22's statistical analysis before we really get our hopes up.


Per spreadsheet

Days we have had JS2's:
-11/25 (JS1 requests - yes) - Monday
-11/26 (JS1 requests - yes) - Tuesday
-12/18 (JS1 requests - no) - Wednesday
-12/19 (JS1 requests - yes) - Thursday
-12/23 (JS1 requests - no) - Monday

So 3/5 times JS2's came out on a day w/ JS1's, 2/5 they came out on a day w/ no JS1's. Non-statistical conclusion: we can't really tell the chances of a JS2 based on the JS1 activity that day.

Sincee you're already doing the analysis, what about the other way? What percent of JS1 days have other news on them?
