I don't think we've seen JS2's before 2pm EST, but they can go pretty late (7 or 8pm).

There are people who applied very early who are still waiting on JS2's. I interviewed at the beginning of January and have not heard anything since. I know there are others who interviewed back in October who are still waiting. A lot of us will probably end up on the waitlist or maybe a late round of rejections, but it is not unheard of for them to go back and accept people they previously passed over.

Really hoping for some good news today!!


This bums me out...I have a feeling I won't be hearing anything for quite a while.

I wonder if they'll wait for the next JS2 round until they have preliminary data on how Feb LSAT takers performed.

They do have preliminary data. For example, 1% of scorers scored at a 173 or above.

Hey there --

The chart of average time from complete to JS1 was really helpful with nerves. Does the same thing exist for the duration of JS1.5?

Thanks!

EDIT: Sorry. Just saw 25.2 days in the Google Doc. If this has been broken down further and someone has it handy, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

If you look a few pages back I think there was a breakdown by GPA/LSAT.

Percentiles are calculated over three-year periods, so you won't see specific percentile data for Feb. 2014 (might get bandwidth data for longer ranges, though). 173 has been ~99 percentile for a long time, so it's a safe bet that that obtains to the Feb. 2014 adminstsation as well.

does anyone have any data on how many people took the feb 2014 test?
