Does anyone happen to know what has historically been the cap on the number of members in the Facebook group?

I really wouldn't follow the fb group numbers as an indicator of anything. In addition to ad coms, people who have committed elsewhere, and people who will commit elsewhere but are currently WL at those schools, you have people like me who are attending HLS but will not join the group until after I give my 2 weeks notice at my firm. There are just too many moving pieces.

The day before my JS2 I saw the posts on here about the FB group numbers and almost had a panic attack. I just wouldn't recommend it as a justification for feeling positive or negative - keep churning along.

Also I second all the discussion on persistence and not losing hope. I was actually waitlisted to HLS in 2008, took some time off, and then really felt like I was starting from scratch with no LSAT on record and applying very late in the cycle. Cut to waitlist, post WL JS1, and eventual JS2 for a dream that I've had since long before my application in '08. Good luck to every person still waiting and to those that decide to apply again in future cycles!

Have they restricted viewing of the FB group? It no longer comes up on my side.

Hoping its not the swan song for those with post WL JS1s who didn't get an offer...

Thanks Mack!
I predicted JS1/b followed by JS2 by the 15th. Seven slots is kinda small though.
Keeping my hopes up regardless.
GL everyone!
