GUYS! The tweet is code obviously.

"Winter weather got you down? Here's a throwback to last summer's team retreat--taken less than 1 hour from Harvard Law! JS"

JS2s confirmed in 1 hour.

Based off of mylsn calculations comparing the total # of admits this cycle to 2014-2015 and 2013-2014 (2015-2016 data is messed up), H has made between 50 and 60% of admits. If the data are accurate, we should be seeing a lot of movement over the next few weeks!

Can someone tell me what it means to be dinged?

Call it. Doa


I don't know about that. Isn't march crunch time for them? They can't afford to lose a day right now.

Plus isn't being able to make these phone calls the best part of their job, and therefore motivating them to want to do the act itself?


I am going to believe this is true because I will believe anything that brings a JS2 wave closer to reality.


Plus: #workingfromhome

Why broadcast that if some movement is not imminent?


I mean, they could be doing a lot of things from home that don't involve giving out JS1's or JS2's.

Do we know how many rejection waves there have been so far? I'm trying to figure out if it means anything that I haven't been dinged yet, I went complete beginning of January.

According to LSN noone with above a 172 has been dinged yet, so maybe a splitter ding wave is imminent?

Also curious, complete around the same time, no JS1 but very much willing to ride the waitlist :)

But js2's seem like something very easily done at home. They're very at-homeable :D

Why doesn't someone make a random twitter and point blank ask? Or use your real handle to show you're a go getter.

Why don't you do it. By the time you made this post who I could have asked and you would have been a martyr

Nah, I can't make an account and all that jazz. I'm low-key avoiding work.
