He doesn't really know who I am, but I don't see how this fact is germane to my living with him tbh.

You guys should sign a lease on an apartment and then send that signed lease to the HLS Admissions Office. To show them you are serious.

Also, I like this living arrangement.

Selected as a Rhodes Scholar, he earned a D.Phil. in Oriental Studies from Oxford University in 1994. From 1999 to 2002, he was a Junior Fellow of the Society of Fellows at Harvard. Before that he served as a law clerk to Justice David H. Souter of the U.S. Supreme Court (1998 to 1999) and to Chief Judge Harry T. Edwards of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit (1997 to 1998).He received his J.D. from Yale Law School in 1997, serving as Book Reviews Editor of the Yale Law Journal

Can we have a new poll now?

I have a suggestion:

How did you feel after your JS1?

1. Nailed it.
2. It was pretty good, but there were a few things I wish I would have said or not said.
3. Meh, I don't know. Not too good but not too bad.
4. I felt awkward and tense throughout what was a pretty bad interview, but managed to pull through.
5. Longest 15 minutes of my life.

Thus leaving out all of us who haven't gotten a JS1 yet...

And thus informing us what to expect. I'm cool with it.
