Just woke up like a drowsy bear to find that the harvard thread jumped 10 pages in my sleep and that js2s are [still] going out. Time to recharge my phone and sit in the place in my house with the best reception waiting lol.

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; <<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?


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


Well you don't have to be a dick about it lol. I tend to prefer objective descriptions over subjective words like "great."


I don't have to be a dick about anything. I choose to be a dick. That's how us Harvtards are, you know :p :p

App and interview info are in original post. PM me if you want exact dates.

ETA Yes, it was a fast edit but not fast enough :)

LS22, what kinds of dates are you looking at? You had your JS1 already, right? How long have you been waiting? The wait sucks, really hope you get the call tonight, bro!

Someone mentioned that JS sounded a bit hurried earlier, right? Sounds to me like she's got a lot of calls to make - fingers crossed for a long wave. Huge congrats to all the admits

i think it may be done. can't imagine they'd continue handing out calls this far outside of business hours, but that's just a hunch.

has anyone heard of any evening calls in past cycles?

+1

JS, you can make our call as rushed as you want. You can literally just yell "YOU'RE IN" and then hang up. I'll be okay with it, promise.
