Went complete on 11/7. Now, we play the waiting game.

My phone is always within arm's reach from now until May.

Went complete yesterday, according to the status checker.

With numbers hugging the medians (very slightly below GPA, slightly above LSAT), how long will it take to get a JS1, if that happens, at this stage? Anywhere from a week to a month it seems?

Same, but I don't expect them to roll in until after Thanksgiving and even when they do, I don't expect one this year. If I expect one ever.

Took me about 3 to get mine after submitting them.

Why would you think after Thanksgiving? They've historically come the Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday before...

I've apparently done less research than you lol. I just know from others that it's "around" Thanksgiving. I'm sure your analysis is more accurate than mine.

LastSamurai does nothing but research. I'm pretty sure he sleeps under a Harvard bedspread.

FTFY ohpo, and thanks Lavitz! I don't think I'll get to your level, so please stick around. I have done some research on the schools I applied to though.


For whoever is interested, of the 21 people to report JS1s up until Thanksgiving last year, 6 TLSers reported JS2s on Tuesday the 20th and 5 on Wednesday the 21st. (another 4 heard back 12/3).

As a point of reference, this year we have 42 TLSers reporting interviews so far, but JS1s also started two weeks earlier than last year.

Edit for clarification.

:?

You're slipping. I count 15 TLSers on that Wednesday. It was a big day for JS2s.

Were those entirely people with stellar numbers or did some people with below median GPAs get in?

So there were 21 pre-Thanksigiving JS1s reported, and all 21 got JS2s by Thanksgiving?

The credited response is phone call unless you're abroad, in which case, an email will be sent


but how am I supposed to instagram a phonecall?

edit: TCR is to selfie while on the phone with JS


This is seriously the most obnoxious thing ever. Don't instagram your JS1 email.

No, because then I would be at Harvard right now.

I didn't verify the number of JS1s. I only went back to count the JS2s because I knew that number had to be off. But even if it's right, it's possible people reported JS2s never previously reported their JS1s. I didn't really check that. What I do remember is that 5 TLSers who got JS1s did not get JS2s. Two of those eventually got in after being held in January.

Prediction that JS2's start Tuesday of next week. They are in a rush this year.

Plz let me get one next week. My birthday is next week and it would be awesome to get a JS2 on that day, if I don't die of alcohol poisoning that is. Cheers bruthers

Makes more sense.

Interesting if that means people who reported JS1s fell off the map.

But I don't need usernames. I'm a little too busy trying to survive 1L to be reanalyzing the events of 1 year ago. :lol:

It is your destiny.

Just wait until people start blaming you for being wrong on JS1 predictions. :lol:

All I think about lately is my JS1, and I've started getting my hopes up way, way too high for a JS2. I'll be lucky if I get a waitlist! Oh god, things are going to start being painful once JS2s start rolling in. The wait for a decision is going to be agonizing.

Just went Complete. I posted complete before but I was looking at LSAC instead of Status Checker because I'm a n00b. Hopefully, I hear back soon about JS1.
