Thank you for clarifying, KB!

That blog has nothing to do with any of the top schools six school as far as summer admits, fyi.

^_^ Glad I could provide amusement, thanks also for clarifying. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that both of you responded!

I don't think so.

Last Friday was a huge day and there were admits that Monday too.

The TLS spreadsheet for HLS applicants is exactly at median for LSAT (173), and 0.05 off for GPA (3.84). There is no meaning to this whatsoever...

Karen is likely going to refrain from answer many specific questions about HLS, fyi. Hopefully you can understand the need to not try to sound like you (in this case Karen) are speaking in the least bit for a former employer. We try to be really careful, perhaps overly so, along these lines. Thanks for understanding and/or not peppering her with a billion PMs :)

Hi Karen, thanks so much for all of your insight! I have a question, and it's one that may seem obvious, but I'm still very curious. What exactly is the purpose of the JS1 interview? I understand that the admissions committee wants to meet the potential admits, but at the end of the day, what constitutes a successful interview, in your opinion?

Thanks again!

http://www.top-law-schools.com/josh-rub ... rview.html <-- this is an interview with JR where he talks a bit about the JS1 (or I guess, JR1) process and what his mindset was like going into each conversation. I thought it was kinda interesting

There were JS2s on the 14th and 20th last year. It's been different this year, but my hope is up for us :D
