Just wondering.

When giving out JS1, have the already read my app? Or is giving js1 purely based on the number?

I know that during the interview they know the app, i am asking about js1 invitation .

LSAT: 174
GPA: 4.0

Complete: 10/10
JS1: 10/31
JS2: 01/23


Much congratulations!

Also, 8PM! :shock:

Here's hoping that means they have lots more calls to make today.

Inspired by the graphs scoobers has made for some other schools, I put together some graphs based on data from the HLS spreadsheet. Thought it was sort of interesting to visualize what (the TLS portion of) the applicant and admit pools are looking like: http://imgur.com/a/1TOgl
(sorry for the link, can't directly post pics yet!)


Ughhhh. I haaaaaate being below both medians.

Definitely read apps before issuing JS1. JS told me during the interview that I had an interesting background and she wanted to know more after reading my PS.

Woah…I'm delighted to report a JayEsTwo! Apparently it was lying in my voicemail (long story short, I was abroad and they didn't remember, combined with poor roaming-client 4G and cell services).

This would not have been possible without the help of many individuals. A big thank you is issued to:

1. The October LSAT Group (you know who you are!);
2. LS22's amazing guide to light and sound during a Skype interview;
3. my ex, both for convincing me that there are occasions when it's appropriate for men to wear makeup, and for administering "light" makeup on me for my JS1;
4. kappycaft1 and Lavitz, for their contributions to the interview threads;
5. and obviously, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (I'm guessing H and S are the Golden Globes, with Y being the Oscars).

LSAT = Median; GPA<25th; K-JD; applied 11/15 and went complete on 12/6.

The fact that some of my fave people on TLS and ITT are reporting JS2s makes my life with JS1, no JS2 a little less desolate. You guys are amazing and I'm truly happy for you! Please don't stop posting ITT, you're all I have to keep me sane!!!!
