Also, would anyone mind sharing if their status checker changed? I'm terrified I'm rejected and just never received the email.

Sorry about the dings!!!

Who is left on WL without a Js1 and what usually happens with those who survive the ding wave? Anyone know?

I'm LSAT= 25 and GPA slightly above median. No js1. :(

Post-WL JS1 (from that FIRST wave over a month ago)... Still nothing.... Literally going to explode from anticipation.

Finally breaking down and positing here.

Still alive - no JS1, just slightly below LSAT median and GPA 25th.

I wonder why they even bother dinging people? We'll all eventually be dinged when classes start, and until then, wouldn't you want to keep your options open?

O law school adcomms, I will never understand you.

I honestly wonder this too. Maybe just to allow people to make other decisions? Or maybe they just figure these people will definitely not be admitted? Like if they think they want to try to up their work expeeience numbers with anyone who is admitted from here on out maybe they reject people without work experience or something like that.

Also post-WL JS1. I was sure we'd be the first to be put under this summer. I figured they'd interview a given number of candidates knowing they'd take maybe two thirds and then toss the rest and continue that as long as they needed people. I wonder if for logistical reasons they simply haven't yet gotten to digging us.

It seems to me like a small act of kindness. I can't imagine it has an advantage for them, but there must come a point in the summer when they can be sure they aren't going to accept a certain number of candidates.

Yeah, that all makes sense. I wonder if we'll see more dings tomorrow/next week, maybe part of a larger wave. Lord knows I'll be checking my email morbidly.
