Congrats to the other admits! And sorry to those with dings today. We will all end up somewhere great I'm sure

Random question. (and congrats to JS2s btw!)

Any value in replying to a rejection with a reaffirmation of interest and mentioning that I plan to reapply during a future cycle?

Might go to grad school first, then reapply to law schools. Could a response like this help? Hurt? Make absolutely no difference? ... I'm guessing it's the last one.

Couldn't hurt, as far as I can tell. I could see it being something you could slip into next year's JS1 or something maybe. If its concise and well written and you want to give it a shot id say go for it

oh and CONGRATS JS2s:)

So, should we expect some more dings on Monday, or do you guys think we can breath for a bit?

What should us JS1ers who haven't received a JS2 or a ding be feeling? Unofficial hold, possibly waitlist?

As someone who interviewed months ago, I'm feeling unofficial hold/soon to be waitlist.

My email was at around 11:30 east coast time...so you're probably safe today.
My stats were 177 highest LSAT (there were retakes) and 3.86 GPA
I think there may have been a lot of little things that did me in, though, when they broke down my raw numbers. For my JS1, I thought it went alright...but I wasn't super enthusiastic for Harvard in it, which they might have taken personally. Oh well, on the plus side I might not need to stress very hard about where I matriculate. Not a K-JD, work experience was internships.

I've been dreaming of this post for a long time.

HOLY CRAP I'M GOING TO HOGWARTS HARVARD!!!

A huge thank you to the whole TLS community. Although I mostly lurked, this site was my rock when studying to retake the LSAT, and my anxiety provoking rock as I waited to hear back. Also, shout-out to Mike Spivey for his generosity, wise council, and for being an all around incredible human being.

I will add my details anonymously to the spreadsheet, but for now I'm off to celebrate!
