+1, submitted 11/18


+1, submitted 10/21 above both medians :(


+1, submitted early October. :( Though I know my numbers are borderline at best so I assumed it would be a long wait.


I haven't gotten one either, but 100P a splitter here, so I assumed the long wait. Submitted right before thanksgiving.

The only people I know who have had JS1's are sure things numberswise. There can't be that many of them. And with scores down, I think everyone else is in for the long wait.

HLS please take me

well I agree it is WAY too soon to be worried, not everyone who has gotten a JS1 has been a "sure thing numberswise" (*cough*me*cough*).

honestly, though, even though my JS1 is already done, I don't expect to hear back for another 2-3 months at the earliest, so I almost wish the JS1 would have come later so I could be less impatient for a decision :lol:

I have a friend who applied last cycle with a 180 and handed in the application the first day....Didn't get his js1 until March...
So I guess even with sure numbers, law school process can be just as unpredictable.

I think JETS is trying to up his chances at H by being sarcastic and having one less applicant to compete with lol.

I got the first sarcasm. But when the second comment kicked in, I was like "Really?"
Anyway, JETS only speaks in HLS thread, I can see how important HLS is to him/her
:P

It's the first interview (as there are often multiples for HLS), and the "JS" stands for Jessica Soban, the Assistant Dean and Chief Admissions Officer.

Hellohalo mentioned their interviewer said the next committee meeting would be two weeks from Jan. 6. My money is on the week after that, but my heart realllyyy hopes that two weeks meant one week and there will be a round tomorrow.

Interesting - my interviewer back in December said late-December to early-mid January is likely given my "late" interview. So I'm hoping for tomorrow or early next week too.

Huh, my interviewer (Nov.) stressed that candidates could very well not hear until April -- that said, you are definitely a safer bet than I am with your stats, so I'd assume that plays a part.

Had a random question...I got my JS1 relatively soon after I applied (went complete 11/30 I think, JS1 email 12/20). Does that quick turnaround bode well for me, or is it just random?

Thanks

Yah my interview (January) said it could be anytime between now and April. Maybe it depends on who you get for an interviewer what they tell you for date ranges?
