Also waiting, and I feel like lots of people with the same or lower numbers have gotten them :( I know it's not all about numbers but I thought I had good softs and LORs. Definitely feels demoralizing, given how early I applied.

Still waiting. I definitely don't have numbers to be expecting one/surprised if I don't get one, but I'm still hoping.

Jesus. I just realized that I block private numbers. When they call, is it usually a private number? Maybe I should stop blocking private numbers. Ugh.

I've read on here that it's both - some from a blocked number and some from a Massachusetts number.

They interview ~1200 candidates each year, per the ABA report, they made ~930 offers last year. So, for the "average applicant" (not that one exists) one would have a ~78% chance of a JS2. JS1s aren't pro forma, but they are a very positive sign.

No one knows for sure, but it is believed to be around 75%.

What does a JS1 mean exactly in terms of how many people have looked at your application. Is it just one person who read your app and liked you, or are others involved. I know the next step after an interview is to pass it on to a faculty reader....then it goes to the admissions committee... then decision.
