Not that they actually are, but this has been a massive wave and I imagine the amount of offers they have to give out has decreased significantly. A lot of strong January folks I guess.

¡ Today !

I just got the call 5 minutes ago from JS herself. Sounded like an idiot I am sure.

I DO NOT fit the pattern of admits so far:
Applied early Nov; Interview early Dec.
SPLITTER: Great LSAT (>>75) ; <<<<25 GPA (with strong addendum and some grad work); good softs.

Also, I didn't think my interview was so great, but JS Mentioned that "X really enjoyed your conversation." Not sure if everyone gets that, but take it as you will.

I love TLS for all the info and support, good luck those of you still waiting! Don't give up hope.

Congrats! Could you be more specific about the LSAT. I'm assuming >75th?

I was a late November submit, early December complete, late January JS1.
LSAT<<<<<<25%, GPA=25%, non-URM, above average softs.

PM me for details. For the other JS2s, so many congrats! For those still waiting, I <3 you and will see you at an ASW, I'm sure. And to scoobers for breaking the silence, WE MISSED YOU!! Happy to see you're alive!!!

I'll be around, folks. God bless!


Warms my heart and gives me hope. :) Congrats!

Oh my; watch out, TREES.

And welcome fellow splitters! I propose a small splitter club at HLS where we can gather and commiserate about our low GPAs.

LS22, Scoobers, and other regular I don't know when you all applied, but I felt like I was waiting forever. I guess at the end of the day we have no idea how their timeline will operate for any specific individual. Hang in there!

And I'll still be checking this thread, if for no other reason than that it's more interesting than the schools I'm still waiting for :) And you can PM me anytime.

Also, thanks for the info, Frozen.

Updated my post a bit and PMed you. Yes, "great" = above 75th. Thought that was obvious.

I tend to prefer objective descriptions over subjective words like "great."
