Congrats! That's still an accomplishment! And thanks for letting us know. I guess we have something to look forward to tomorrow


Is it just me or does it seem like they're just doing tiny little waves at this point


Made an account to say I'm still holding out hope for a tiny JS2 wave since they're so damn behind


+1

Mainly bc I have to believe that to maintain my sanity


There is zero harm in hope and positivity at the moment and honestly TLS as a whole could probably use more of it ;) so I can absolutely get on board regardless of precedent or speculation haha

Maintain your sanity and be good to yourselves, everyone! I'm sure I'll see you guys back on here in the AM for the final <48 hours Also if my earlier post actually did encourage someone to go outside and enjoy the afternoon I'm going to consider that a mini victory in place of the JS2 wave we didn't have haha


Fingers crossed everyone! See you all tomorrow!

Red eye to BOS in couple of hours. Going to get slightly buzzed at the bar so I can sleep on the plane

Good morning! Here's to hoping today is the day of decisions (of any kind - but preferably waitlist for us JSNones)!

Hard to believe it will be complete silence again today. Here's to hopefully seeing some kind of news on this thread!

Checking in to say this process has probably taken a year(minimum) off my life. At this point, the least they could do is let me in to compensate.

Has anyone begun applying to jobs in case his doesn't work out? Or is everyone just going to ride the waitlist/deposit at another school if it doesn't work out?

I am going to law school next year, even if I don't get into H. Wish you the best though!

Did you only apply to H and will only go to H?

It's kind of crazy to me that people would have the mindset of HLS or bust... :?

Didn't only apply to H but applied pretty late in the cycle and had schools hold my app for my February LSAT (third take) and my score didn't really change so I think it really hurt me in admissions.
I have VERY specific career goals and H is far and away the best place for me to study law. I have great other options but if taking a year off and applying the day the application opens is the way to get in, then I might do it. I'm k-JD now so I assume work experience wouldn't hurt! I was already considering taking a year off and working anyway.

Okay cool, right on! These are good reasons.
H or NOTHING! is weird on its own without any context though.

To answer the question though, I'm leaning toward sitting out the cycle and doing other stuff anyways and reapplying at a later date. The big UNLESS is if I get H. I'm not H or bust, but it would just mean I overperfomed so might as well seize the opportunity if I want to go to law school.

I find it a little suspect that it was only one unless some people aren't posting in fear of HLS somehow matching up user names lol

I find it a little suspect. Not sure if that waitlist was real or not but who knows.

Think it was the same troll who made up a js2 previously.
