Perhaps, but did people who were held get JS1s?
And I know that I'm not helping them with their GPA median, so I better hope they liked the interview.
Good point. And yeah, I'm banking on my interview, WE, PS, etc. to push me across and make up for that GPA lol.
I just skimmed the held at HLS thread from last year, and you have a good point. The majority of those people did not have JS1s
I know KB said in her thread that if you get a JS1 they "like something in your application," but I can't help but feel that my JS1 is more of a "Oh let's just see if this GPA pleb has anything to offer" interview rather than a "oh wow let's let's admit him but make sure he's not a psychopath first" interview.
TL;DR Not all JS1s are created equal. It's quite sad.
Right, I have to keep reminding myself that approximately 860/1200 JS1's will be accepted eventually. And while I know the odds of acceptance are not equally distributed within that 1200, we made it into a fairly small group. Anyone who got a JS1 has a real shot, and if they liked your interview, and you put together a solid app, the odds are not bad at all. We need to remain optimistic.
