It should be noted that HLS's cat post was in response to what was happening here, which started when some posters with cat avatars got into a few of YHS and someone joked that it must be the avatars, although it might not have been in this thread. People started changing their avatars deliberately around this page viewtopic.php?f=7&t=233691&start=3125 and it snowballed from there.

Not having my JSFB is making it so much harder to creep on my potential future classmates begin engaging with the HLS community on a totally meaningful level. :(

Well, having it is mostly just obsessively wondering which of the others are on TLS but being afraid to say anything.. :oops:

The cat pun thread a few pages later was really fun... My emotions this cycle have been thrown for such a roller coaster!

I disagree. That thread was a cat-astrophe!

I'm sorry. I have a problem.

Just an FYI -

Had my JS1 recently and was told that this was (one of the last? the last?) week for interviews, and that all decisions would be out by April 1. So there's not that much time left to wait!

I'm sorry, I don't want to be the sourpuss here, but... You've gotta be kitten me. More puns? We have a purroblem here people. We're appawroaching page 200 and need to get more serious. Can't cheetah way to the big milestone with more cat jokes.

I missed the old days, that's all. I apawlogize, too...

Jan JS1 here. I don't know how to feel about this information. Some excitement... but mostly dread nervousness, I guess?

Probably the last week then. They haven't put up any more slots for the next few weeks. Sorry to everyone for whom I predicted another JS1 wave. Looks like I was wrong (again).

How likely are JS1s done until waitlist? Especially given the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 comparison. Completed late February.

I think the acceptance with the latest JS1 date on LSN is 2/12. Do you have a later one noted somewhere?

Ooops. TLS has taken over all parts of my life.


haha...I have had this same problem. The anxiety from this has actually caused me to develop RLS which makes it hard for me to sleep.

Mine was also only about that long, as it started about 7 minutes late. Poor JS seemed really flustered.

I thought you could only see about a week out's worth of slots though? :?:

No, I can see any open slots (including the fun day when they suddenly had 100's of slots open in the year 1099 AD).

On TLS, there were 172 JS1s before the WL last cycle. This year, we have had 174 so far. So it seems consistent that they are close to done their interviews before the WL. Sorry! :( However WL -> JS1 -> JS2 still happens, so I wouldn't lose hope!

Is April 1 a consistent decision date for admits?

That seems to be the unofficial decision time. I thought I remember reading somewhere that an April 1 response was only guaranteed for applications completed, not necessarily submitted, by February 1 but I can't find it so I might've imagined it. Here's all I can find:

Decisions: We will make every effort to deliver a decision on your application as soon as possible. An applicant who is offered admission will be notified immediately; in other instances, applications receive continued consideration with a decision to be made later in the season. In any case, the Admissions Office will make every effort to notify applicants of decisions by late April. We appreciate your patience with the process of providing individual consideration to each application.

Hope this means there's still time for JS1s to trickle out before waitlist time.

I've been complete for 3 months now with no JS1. Does this indicate a likely WL since it is late in the cycle or is it a non-factor? I've seen others with similar numbers that submitted after me get JS1s or rejected.
