Congrats on the JS1!

Side-note: Although I'm happy for the individuals receiving JS1's, my stomach sinks just a little every time I miss out on the wave.

I'm considering sending in an updated resume. Figure I didn't put in my new job in the applications I sent in. Just to maybe give them a reminder that I am thinking about them.

Not complete here either, but as I mentioned above, I submitted quite late. Will post updates as soon as I have them!

Condolences to all who've been waiting forever.

I did this too but now I'm worried that I have nothing if I get waitlisted.

That's what I did just last week and they confirmed that it was added to my file for review, so it's definitely worth a shot! I've been waiting for over four months now for some sign of life.

This is kind of my thought process for most schools. I like to have at least one more thing besides (another) LOCI to send in for a possible wait-list. But that is just me, I know opinions vary on the matter.

It is but a commentary on the excitement, anxiety, and ultimate despair that awaits each day JS fails to communicate her desires to us. Ah, the siren call of the JS2. Ah, the discontented winds of emotion.

Silent days are bad, but JS1/JS2 days when you're not included are the worst. They make cat sad.

Nonconsecutive's statement is most vulnerable to criticism on which one of the following grounds?

(A) It takes for granted that lawschool22/PotenC has any sanity left to lose.

(A) is the credited response.

I was in the process of making a logic game involving NC, PotentC, and LS22 and their TLS browsing habits, then I realized that I should probably be working on that paper that is due tomorrow.

Damned law school admissions turning me into an ineffective neurotic.

But he got full-rides at two T6s.

Yeah, that's what makes me lean toward thinking it's an interview issue, not a C&F/LOR/PS/etc issue.

They probably dinged him because he spat all over the screen during his JS1.

Oh wait.

Harvard's is weird. Each person gets there own listed of "required documents" based on a preliminary questionnaire about your finances. Idk if you'll need your own return, but you will need your parents if you're younger than 29.

You won't need yours. You will need theirs, along with their W2. You'll also need pretty much every piece of info you can think of about their finances (total liquid cash in all accounts, total value of all investments, value and dates and such on any homes they own etc.) It's a bear.

Oh god, sorry! That was a total mistake. I thought this was Harvard C/O 2017. :shock:

..this is what happens when the only two TLS tabs you always keep open are Harvard C/O 2017 and Harvard C/O Applicants (yes, I'm still constantly watching).
