i think nope to both of the above questions (defer off of WL and WL as scholarship leverage)

Curious - many housing agreements for other LS have a deadline around mid-May or so. Does that mean that for at least some people, they would need to break their housing agreement in order to accept off the WL? Or do people just not sign the housing agreement (therefore no guaranteed housing) and wing it until they hear back one or the other from JS? The answer seems obvious but I'd like to make sure.


I'd break a lease to go to HLS. But when you start adding up first seat deposits, second seat deposits, and a security deposit for an apartment it starts to get expensive real fast.

No they don't rank their waitlist

Not sure what "rank" really means, but I'd bet my mother's house that they organize the pool by applicant attributes: LSAT, URM, GPA, etc

I meant rank like how Berkeley has first quartile, etc, but they say they don't rank it..

Anyone have the graphs for the decision timelines for 12-13 and 13-14 cycles? 11-12 is here, with waitlist data: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=214072

Could we really expect JSW-->JS2s as early as the 2nd wk of April?

It looks like they had some initial wait lists in January tho in that graph too, did we have that this cycle?

Anyone know exactly what the column title with all the schools listed under it is in the spreadsheet? Classic Columbia move to write over the title - essentially the TLS equivalent of ripping out a page at the library

As far as I know, we didn't see any WLs this year until this week. On LSN, earliest WL this year was 3/25. So perhaps we'll have to wait longer this year for WL-->JS2s, unfortunately...

I think Harvard was doing a "held" status that year still and those January waitlists might have actually been people who were held
