Fwiw, my interview (the chatty one) was pretty early on in the cycle. Maybe JS is rightfully more stressed out now, so the interviews have a different timbre.

Definitely found my Chi interview to be more formal/job-like than Harvard (which was much more casual and conversational).

Eh...mine was at the beginning of the cycle too...I think that it really depends on the applicant

Eh, I think dings might be more of a bummer. Are we anticipating a ding wave or a JS1/2 wave in the near future?

My JS1 was like a segment on The View, whereas my Chi interview was more like being on Charlie Rose.


Perfect

You should be able to find this in the google doc spreadsheet or LSN.

11/8 no interview. Waiting for that ding. I've even got a DING bar post ready to go!

I was really hoping we would have JS1/2's today, but if not I think we'll see movement next week. If you look at the graph of decisions from last year, seems like there may not be any more massive massive waves, but trickling decisions as the cycle continues.

You should be able to find this in the google doc spreadsheet or LSN.

LSN might be harder to find this information, because you'd have to go to individual user pages to see if they had a JS1 I think.

But as per the spreadsheet, seems like October 8th is the earliest complete date who still is in limbo (grain of salt, they may have just not updated). There's a few others mid-late October though, so I'd say that is roughly more accurate.

Finally checking in late in the game.

Late December complete. Early Feb JS1. Median GPA, 176 LSAT from HYP undergrad.

I'm still holding out hope for a JS2 wave today.

Strongly disagree. The anxiety associated with uncertainty is killing me, just tell me already =[

If admitted before April's ASW, will anyone attempt to go, or care to go?

I'd go, but if I was admitted anything < a week before ASW, then it would be much harder.

The lack of massive waves from this point forward makes sense when you consider there are relatively fewer people at this point still waiting on a decision.
