A few months ago someone said they know people who had terrible interviews and got accepted; others had great interviews but weren't admitted. At the end of the day, the interview is just one piece of your entire app


+1 also depends on what types of questions your interviewers asks. My interview seemed pretty meh because a lot of the questions asked were not very interesting (the answers to those questions could easily be found in my application). The interviewer talked for half the time as well and at one point even seemed distracted with something else, so I thought I was being uninteresting. Still got the JS2.

Oh- also something to note: my JS2 call (2/22 not today...) came with a "No Caller ID", so I almost ignored it thinking it was one of those ad calls. Just a headsup... your caller might not call with a number from Cambridge. If you see a call from "No Caller ID" and it's around JS2 time, pick it up!!

Oh you're so humble. Come on! You're clearly one of those "so-called" auto-admits.

It's cute/hilarious that the interviewer seemed distracted with something else. Were you above both 75ths and were your softs pretty unique? Congrats!

Nope, I was at the median for both GPA and LSAT. Uniqur dofts, good rec letters, but nothing toooooo crazy or highly unique.

My interview was also really conversational, and the questions were not stressful at all. My interviewer asked me to describe my undergrad experience, what clinics I would be interested in, and why Harvard/Boston. No curveballs at all.

Looking at MyLSN...its begun.

May God have mercy on our souls.



So...does a rejection wave have any bearing on the likelihood of a JS2 wave?

As much as I'd like one today, I can't even imagine how bittersweet that would feel for our fallen friends.

Best of luck to our fallen brothers and sisters. I do feel a since of relief though. I survived to the first wave.

Looking at LSN, it has begun. But to be frank, those are Auto dings. So I don't really feel that I survived or whatever.
