you seem to have got js1 so you dont care or it probably doesnt matter to you but this has been used in tls to collect data during cycles. too few js1 atm but it could be sent to any one person who could crosscheck for double book so number of pending Js1 can be known later in the cycle. someone with account for year goes thru the cycle only so they could know some stranger anon ids interview times.

All:

I'm gonna go ahead and guess we won't be getting any more news today. Best of luck to those yet to hear (myself included), and fingers crossed we see another round of JS1s tomorrow.

Very curious about this too!


I know of one person who does not TLS but I saw the email


sorry to continue beating what might be a dead horse, but can someone with access to the page with the js1 interview slots share if there are still a decent number of open slots?

Interesting v2...half open on day 1, a little more than half open on day 2. Noted.

There is no green in sight for my numbers so I'm happy to have made it here.
Just hoping for a miracle. Hoping for the sea to part.

See, I'm not sure if that's necessarily worse than being the sole yellow dot in a sea of green. I'm over here thinking, "what's the red flag on my app?"

Could the JS1 holders (especially the international ones) post their stat ranges? I'm just trying to figure out what HLS is looking for. If they are targeting internationals it could be that they are looking for the high LSATs with the non-reported international GPAs to not screw over their GPA medians.

Very interesting point, that would really help explain this international tsunami

i guess someone didn't read the Large-Fonted instructions at the top of the spreadsheet and tried sorting or such. may be a spreadsheet guru can tell if it maintains history so the changes could be reverted to its previous fixed state or fix it.

file > see revision history brings up a sidebar of past revisions. You can click on one then click the green "RESTORE THIS REVISION" button at the top of the screen to roll it back.

Is there anyone on the waitlist without a JS1 who recently checked their status and noticed something different?

After confirming I wanted to stay on the waitlist on March 30, clicking "View Update" under the status "An update to your application was last posted March 30, 2017," takes me to the letter from JS about the waitlist. That letter contains a link to "replying online." After I confirmed on March 30, clicking on this link used to lead to a page indicating "waitlist active" or something like that. (I remember there being green.)

Now when I click on the "replying online" link, I just get "503 error: Registration for this event is inactive."

???
And yes, I had received an e-mail from HLS JD admissions confirming my status on the waitlist back in early April, and I did not fill out any waitlist withdrawal form.

I get the same screen. I assume the page went inactive because its now too late to reply to the initial waitlist offer, not because anything actually changed about our status. Not sure though.

The spreadsheet is fine. I looked through the revision history, and everything seems to be in order. The info has been sorted twice by some non-readers, but it doesn't matter.

There are built-in sort filters, so sorting doesn't actually mess up the data unless someone goes out of their way to do something dumb. Your info may not be in the row where you originally placed it, but it should still all be together on the same row. My info is still correct, as is everyone else's I individually checked.

It is possible that someone went through and manually changed some of the fields for some reason. Sorence, if you can point out (PM if you want) which info is yours, I can try and track down the problem.

I think there were at least two below LSAT median. I am guessing and hoping that they met their target LSAT! I think last time they were targeting 173 and picked up only (or mostly) those with above 172 from the waitlist. This time it's more promising (for those below medians).
