My money is on December 28 :)


I'm sure decisions will start trickling out before christmas, and I would be surprised if they released decisions anytime between Dec 25 and Jan 2 for obvious reasons.


How many JS waves are there in total? Sorry if this is a dumb question lol :'(


Seems like the TLS jargon is tripping you up: A JS1 is an interview invite, and a JS2 is an acceptance. Check the first post in this thread for information about when those waves were reported during the last few cycles.


Yeah and we call it JS because the dean's name is Jessica Soban. The jargon didn't make any sense to me for the longest while.


LOL thanks for the clarification guys! Now I realize that really was a dumb question :lol:

I did mine a little over a week ago. We get told our interviewer's name at the start of the interview.

Does everyone who is admitted get an interview?

Yuuuuuup. In recent years, about 1200 applicants have been interviewed (per cycle, that is), of whom about 900 are admitted.

Think you misunderstood the question. tinycatfriend, you've got no shot if you aren't interviewed - so the 900 acceptances they typically issue out have all been interviewed.


Oops I did. Yah that's right :oops:

Had one last week, and like Baby Gaga, didn't know who my interviewer would be until the interview started. Will send some more details about the substance of the interview itself in a PM.

Had my JS1 today. My interviewer told me that there is no correlation between JS1 date and when you receive a JS2. He said it could be as early as the end of this month and as drawn out as a few months into 2017.

Thanks!! I doubt it; it's still so early in the cycle, a ton of people still haven't even applied yet. Seems like there's going to be a ton more movement re: JS1s this month and next. -mostly uninformed opinion-

For submitting fall grades, would it make a difference if I wait to submit them until January? I'm going to be leaving to go home tomorrow, and I'd like to know what grades I got before I send them out (won't find out until next week). I wish I could order them online, but because of the LSAC form I don't think I can.

I'm curious as well. My last final is next Tuesday. When do most people send in their final grades? January?

To indulge in tasseomancy for a second, last week we saw JS waves Monday and Friday. This week, we saw a report of a JS1 on Monday... and today's Friday! So therefore :?: :!: :?: :!: :?: :!:

Tbh with Harvard all bets are off

Also tbh totally googled "reading tea leaves" specifically to discover the magical name for it, but final tbh I'm really glad I learned it too.
