There were JS2s this week?


J1: day 1-7
J2: day 8-14
J3: day 15-21
J4: day 22-31

So J4 is a bit longer, and includes the 1/23 admits. Had to split it up somehow.


Ok, makes sense. Thanks.

Hey, just curious, did you know I'd ban you for this dumb shtick? Here, I'll give you a few days to answer.


Maybe Donna's post is part of a larger communication, but what's banworthy about it?

She's been doing this in several threads, posting incorrect information designed to make people freak out. See the Stanford thread.

I'm guessing Harvard doesn't do late calls on Friday since people will usually be out

sighhh, I wonder what H adcomms do on friday nights... maybe they play drinking games to our PSs. One shot every time you read the opening sentence, "Ever since I was a child..."

haha, I put my PS out of my mind right after I submitted it but now I'm worried that I started it like that :P

Edit: though it would't really have made sense given what my PS was about so maybe not...still probably horribly cliched though

Someone mentioned user triptrip ITT before, I just saw his LSN prof. Dafuq?!? Why did he get wait listed at every school at the t-6 given his awesome stats?
