I've been complete since like September or early October. Assuming that I'll be rejected and this is just borrowed time.

you think she accepts everyone she interviews personally??? So then is there a hierarchy or a meaning behind who you interview with. Or are these just the musings of an obsessed JS1er


I have a difficult time believing you aren't a troll.


Lol +1

Its almost 5pm Eastern time, yea looks like another weekend without knowing!! ugh!!! I can't take it much longer. I jump every time my phone rings or I get a new email. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:



You're gonna really have to chill out. There have been people waiting for much much much much longer than you. If you get a quick turn around, awesome. But to think that you should hear back so soon or to complain about having to wait so long when there are others waiting with JS1s in November is pretty disrespectful and won't win you any friends around here.

Don't Feb LSAT scores come out in the next week or two? This prediction might be pretty apt if so.

That seems like a little much. We are all in the same boat...waiting on them to respond before we can make any admissions decisions. Its a little silly to get offended when we are all feeling the same thing.

My condolences to the dings today. :(

Welp, looks like no JS2 movement today, folks. Here's to next week.

Well, I've had bad news from Yale (expected) and Gtown (totally unexpected) this week. JS, any chance you want to turn this frown upside down? :?

edit: Just saw the dings ITT - damn guys, I'm so sorry. You are all so amazing, and you're going to have so many great options!

serious question for everyone:
do you think you felt the same 2 weeks after your JS1 as you did 2 months after your JS1?

Nothing close to the same. I didn't start stressing out until the waves had clearly moved beyond my JS1 date, which was about 6 weeks or so.

It seems to make sense that rejections are being made by interviewer. This is the first JS rejection, correct? I also remember seeing some Danielle rejections previously, are there any other interviewers that have issued dings?

My deepest condolences to the recent fallen. :(

Lauren was my interviewer. I don't think it has to do with who you were interviewed, although if you have a 171 lsat, watch out haha.

lol, if only no news was good news.

And props for actually phoning. I'm optimistic that a bunch of us longwaiters will get in off the waitlist.

I'm sure this has been asked, but what's TCR on thank you emails? Also, does anyone know the last name of the admissions officer named Amy? I was so nervous during the interview I totally forgot her last name.

LS22 is my source on this but it seems as though it's just not something you need to do for the HLS interview.
