As above posters mentioned. However some purists seem to not like it because JS isn't actually doing anything. IIR ls22 said at one point "what the hell is this JS1.5 business everyone's talking about" :)

rename it JS square root of -1 because it is irrational and goes on forever?

ETA-whoa, wait...that's imaginary not irrational. it's been a while since 8th grade algebra, erudition fail.


Yeah i is imaginary, not irrational. Let's go with JSπ, JSe, or my personal favorite JSφ, where φ is the golden ratio and is equal to (1+√5)/2 ≈ 1.618, which is between 1 and 2!

Bravo, I think that settles it.
ETA- spoke too soon, so JS1.21 jiggawatts is the official language from now on instead of the deplorably unscientific JS1.5?

+1.21 Jiggawatts (also between 1 and 2, I might add)


Of course! I can't believe I didn't think of that earlier. JS1.21 jiggawatts!!

It's OK, I only thought of it after I hit my head on the toilet this morning.

I've been complete for about 5-6 weeks now and nothing. I'm thinking we're in the same boat. My fingers are crossed for a JS1 once the February LSAT scores come in, and Harvard knows exactly what scores they have to work with.

JS2 via voicemail yesterday. I missed the phone call but now I get to listen to the message over and over. Submitted early December, end of January interview. Must update spreadsheet... *fills out Troll Detector Form*
Edit- LSAT>75 GPA about median

So given all the recent admits, seems like that they will also do another batch of dings, no?

Seems likely, my guess is early next week we'll see those dings.

You guys don't need to worry about waves. On the day I got my JS1 there was not a single js1 reported. Invites go out fairly frequently.

Odd that there is no other movement on LSN or here with decisions. Hopefully it was just a mistaken date.

if you flipped through last year's Harvard thread, after the Feb 20th (Wed) JS2 wave, a hold/rejection wave happened two days later (Friday), which would be today in this cycle. I am gonna hide under my bed for the rest of today.
