How so? I'm sure you're fine, bro


I got tripped up on a few questions, I just don't think I came off as intelligent. I wouldn't be surprised if i got waitlisted.

The questions weren't too hard, I just got nervous.


Sorry to hear that. Just remember it's still only one part of the application.

I submitted on the 10th, went complete about a week later and received JS1 invite in late october!

171/3.75

I had my JS1 recently, it was really casual, not the standard why law/why harvard. She also asked me specific questions from my resume.

Well, to be honest, my interview was mediocre as well.

Take it easy.

I agree, mine wasn't the best thing ever...they know that it's a big freaking deal to us and we're perfectly liable to trip out or not be at our best, our best is supposed to be in our application, really, not the interview; it's just a factor not a determinant 8)

This. 15 minutes can't possibly dissolve the accumulated years of work/achievement (or lack thereof) represented in the application.

luckystar84 wrote:only went complete recently. another school's status check showed complete->Under review. Is "complete" the only stage that your checker will show even after you get your JS1?


Yep. My status didn't change even after I had the interview. The only thing that changed is that they added another record of correspondence under "Mailings" indicating I had scheduled an interview.

The online status check says that my file went complete on 11/1, but I got an email yesterday saying it is complete as of 11/7. Which is correct?

Also: what is the difference/what is js1 vs js2?

Does it really matter?

JS1 is the initial interview, JS2 is them calling you to let you know that you were admitted.

Had my JS1 interview today. Can't really add anything to what's been said. Almost entirely resume questions, and then a "Do you have any questions about Harvard?" at the end.

Very casual; no idea if it went well or not. I guess I'll find out eventually.
