JS1 today! Hoooooooooray!

Any KJDs with weak softs, or anyone else, really, have any advice they'd like to share? I would love to hear it over PM :D


Congratulations to everyone else who got one today! Agh! Exciting!

Congrats! Have you read kappycaft1' thread? That was very useful for me. I'm a K-JD with average softs who got a JS2, so feel free to PM with any questions that you have.

Good luck!

Thank you for listening.

It's JS plus 3 others.

Here's the bio page: https://blogs.law.harvard.edu/admission ... view-team/

From what I've heard they're all really conversational and friendly just like JS.

wow thx! So they are likely to be asking questions tailored to my application instead of general questions?
I really hope that I can get application-specific+related questions.

Mine didn't seem too conversational, though others thought she was. I guess it can depend on factors like when you catch them...

+1. Mine was definitely more formal and a traditional interview style. But I've heard that JS is pretty much always casual, at least.

Pretty general means: "why law school?" "What future career?" "Biggest accomplishment?" "Job experience?" that kind of questions?

OMG I hope I can get one of those conversational and casual interviews. coz I'm afraid that formal questions will make me sound dull and awkward...

It gets closer every time the sun goes down.

Would you like to build a shelter together? I've never been camping but I have seen every season of survivor so i'm sure I can figure it out. Hopefully we can seek refuge until our JS1s or JSDings mercifully arrive.
