Miss, I've seen your numbers and I've seen mine... Unless JSDone counts, in which case MAYBE but probably not still.

You are a shoo in <3

Interinstitutional grade counted into lsads GPA?

I took one course from other institution near our school, which is under the consortium.

The course grade appears on my own school's transcript and was wondering if that factors into the lsac gpa!

Not the right spot for this question, but likely yes.

JS1s are more common.. there was a big batch today but they are more frequent in general.

There have been 65 business days since the first JS1 came (I didn't subtract holidays, so this number should really be even smaller), and 45 days where we saw JS1's. So you're looking at a nearly 70% chance that at least one JS1 will be sent out on any given day. If you subtract for the holidays this percentage would be even higher.

This is just to echo philly's comments that JS1's come out fairly regularly and they aren't "wavy" like JS2's.

I was thinking about sending an optional diversity statement; I have already sent out my application and now cannot seem to find any info on a diversity statement on the Harvard website. I am mainly wondering whether I should title it diversity statement or optional essay. I don't remember what the app asked.

Is it just me, or have the TTT emails really started heating up just as we are on edge expecting JSNo emails to come in? :evil:

You can still enter your application in LSAC. Check there

I'm personally fond of JSNone as the word usage.

Could JSNo mean "received JS1, no JS2" and JSNone mean "did not receive JS1" here? Or should there be no special distinction for "did not receive JS1?"

Or JSNo can mean ding after JS1, while ding will stay as No JS1, denied.

Also, everytime I get a new e-mail I get scared

What if JS had a rubber stamp that said "JSNO!" on it.

That's cool and all JS, but please don't use it on my app...

This is old (from the late spring), but I hadn't seen it before. Interesting, even though it only applies to Harvard College students: http://blog.accepted.com/2013/05/28/har ... n-program/
