I was encouraged to reach out to faculty…hmmm. :wink:

:wink:

Also, I'm relieved that the theory of JS identifying the TLS applicants and then excluding them from yesterday's wave has been thoroughly refuted.

Amen to that. Although I'm not thoroughly convinced she hasn't found a way of linking my fake gmail that I used to set up those spreadsheets to an IP address somehow, giving her my exact location. :shock:

So she can drive to your house and accept you in person over a six-pack of Harpoon IPA?

That would be both wonderful and creepy, but mostly wonderful.

If I were JS and I could match this post to your app, I would admit you on the spot.

JS likes Harpoon? If I bring this up in a potential future interview (I'm not counting on anything, I'm not even complete), would I gain brownie points?!

I hope not.


Yeah where did this come from? lol. I'd guess if we don't hear back in this wave, we'll probably hear back in February.


Worst case scenario - not implying it was at all likely, but that would be my luck, to just be held until the last possible minute.

So, there was at least one call around noon yesterday.

I have perfected the art of wishful thinking.

neprep wrote: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.
(Minor details changed)

Congrats, nep!

And thanks for the shout-out, even though my interview advice probably isn't that great. 8)

I've become obsessed with checking this message board and my JS1 was only yesterday. This is going to be a very long month.

:lol:

Actually though I think as we get closer to the end of the cycle they might be speeding things up. They'll also have a wave of apps coming in after the Feb. LSAT this time, though, so on the other hand they might want to slow down as well.
