Does anyone know if certain waves are for URM’s without stellar numbers I know some URM’s got some but they already had stellar numbers for non URMS.

By which I mean to say - congrats to all for both your JS1s and your numbers! But the rest of us can probably take a deep breath :D


I'm not panicking yet. Everyone seems to have a killer LSAT.

Are JS1s sent via email or does the status checker update (or both)?

Sometimes I take a break and just go hide in the other threads where we have killer LSATs.

It's all good. You guys have killer GPAs and your day will come too. Maybe a bit later than it did for the 175+ crowd, but it will.

How long until it's time to contact admissions re: status staying at "received," not "complete?" It's been about two weeks for me, and most people are getting faster turnarounds.

Wanted to point out the underlying narrative here that URMs are somehow less/un- qualified. Harvard has so many incredible people applying, I’d think everyone selected for a JS1 or JS2 would have pretty “stellar” numbers — URM or not.


Wanted to point out there is an unequivocal difference of lsat scores necessary to get into law schools depending on URM status, and as a URM, I wanted to find out more information that is particular and more helpful to myself

As someone in a similar situation (URM with a less-than-stellar number), knowing if certain waves are more URM-centric would definitely be helpful. I don't think jimmyplayer601's comment was intended to be demeaning/offensive.

When I looked through the Harvard 2020 thread, I noticed that there were both JS1 and JS2 waves that were purely made up of URMs without “typical Harvard numbers.” I’m holding out for one of those, should I not get one in the coming waves.
