Does how fast you go from complete -> interview have any sort of positive relationship?



you mean is it a positive reflection of your application? I dont think so, not necessarily. It mayy be an indication that they are especially curious to hear more from you.

I had a 3 day turn around between complete and JS1 -- perhaps in part because I applied relatively early (Nov 8 I think) -- but I've yet to hear anything since. I'm fairly certain the interview went well, but I have a pretty unique PS and I suspect that they were primarily just interested in learning a lil more about me. So long as they decide they like me by the time term rolls around in September I'm content haha

Doesn't happen anymore.

eta: by that I mean an interview is a requirement for admission


What about an acceptance from the waitlist, which is what I'm hoping for at this point?

They interview people off the waitlist as well.

OMG JS1!!!!

3.98/169

I know I have an upward battle owing to my numbers but heck, I'm just happy that they didn't write me off!!

edit: my effective complete date is likely in early/mid january since I told them not to review my file until my december score is released, even though i had submitted earlier with my earlier lsat score.

Very nice! I would think you've got a shot with that GPA.

Lots of resources on here about how to handle the interview. I've been second-guessing mine a bit, but what's done is done.

Congrats to the recent JS1s!

The latest complete date to get a JS1 if I recall correctly from this thread was 2/9. Does anyone know/have a later complete date than this with a JS1 request?

Congrats to all the JS1s. Its good to see that they're still coming.

I've already waited more than doubled the average time for people with my numbers to get JS1s from this analysis earlier

GPA<3.88 / LSAT<173 = 30.2
GPA<3.88 / LSAT>=173 = 17.1
GPA>=3.88 / LSAT<173 = 15.1
GPA>=3.88 / LSAT>=173 = 11.0


i'm preparing myself for the worst now :cry:
