Well, those two could both be the "above/above" kind, which LS22's theory does allow for :)

I got the call just 3 minutes before posting. After lurking for so long I had to share the breaking news that JS2s were coming ! 3.9 GPA, low LSAT, 2 year work experience at a law firm, strong recommendation letters. International student.

Haha yup. Let's see if they're above/above ppl. And how big this wave was. You'll notice I've been leaving myself some wiggle room :)

I cannot handle this! I had finally resigned myself to the idea of not hearing anything until March, and suddenly we get some activity. :)

Just curious, is there anyone so far who has received a JS2 that is not a URM? Trying to see if this might be a urm-only wave or something.

Well arapha89 said s/he was an international student, so can't be all URMs.

According to LSN, though, another 3.9/178 URM got in today as well.

Are international and LSAC URM mutually exclusive?

International applicants def don't get a URM boost.
