I wonder what happened during their JS1


what even qualifies as a bad js1?
:shock:


jessica did not appreciate me flashing her during the interview
¯\_(ツ)_/¯


I dunno, that seemed to work well for me. I suggest all future JS1ers give it a shot.

No. I figure that they made those calls because they were there for ASW.


JS actually explicitly told me that.

.. I had an actual conversation with JS. Over wine. And she is super chill. Still reeling.


Fortunately said conversation happened prior to a (few) gin and tonic(s) :lol: :wink:

My question is what percent of those interviews have gotten a decision already? Has it reached the level of the general JS1 population or is there latency?

I am still waiting on one of these dates.

~1200 JS1
~850 acceptances, but this includes those admitted from the waitlist

This month is probably one of the only times in my life that I want the weekend to go faster so I can get back to hoping for a JS2 call.

+1 adcomms usually don't get breaks off. They might do travel stuff, but that's pretty unlikely at this time of the year.

Feelings as to whether/when we'll see a JS2 wave this week?

I'm thinking of sending the following attachment as a LOCI to Harvard. Thoughts? :P
