Applied 12/23, just went complete! Those of you who got a JS1 request: how long did it take after going complete?

Thanks! Out of curiosity, would you seriously consider attending Harvard, or are you pretty much set on Yale?


Things are still pointing heavily Yale, but I want to visit as many ASWs as practically possible before I commit. I'll be really stoked with a H JS2.


You're an inspiration man!


Thanks so much! That means a whole lot to me :)

I just got an email from Harvard, completely unrelated to the law school... Thanks for the heart attack, I needed it!

It took about a month for me. I applied late November, went complete first week of December, and got a JS1 first week of January.

Complete 11/22, JS1 01/03 - so about 6 weeks (including the holiday).

Had my JS1 today, thought it went very well. Now I join you all in the ever so enjoyable JS2 waiting game.

Hi everyone!

This is my first time posting. I debated about joining for awhile because I knew I would get sucked in if I did, but here I am. I applied in late November, had my JS1 today. Hoping for the best.

When would we hear back about a JS1? Does not getting one basically preclude admission? If so, why don't they just ding me already!!! :(

JS1s are required for admissions. Historically, JS1 invites occur through March. How long it takes to receive a JS1 invite if you're getting one depends on when you submitted and the strength of your application. If you're above 75ths and have a strong app, you're likely to hear sooner than someone below medians.

Today and tomorrow are unavailable on interview slots - wonder if that has any significance!

The more I think about it the more meh I am about how my interview went. Jealous of everyone who says their interviewer was really excited/energetic.

At this point, I don't really remember my interview (it was 11/21 lol), but I doubt that a fifteen minute interview could truly make that substantial of a difference.

I feel the same way! Curious if we had the same interviewer.

Exact same. It's comforting to know folks don't all feel as enthusiastic about how it went! (And not just because it didn't go as great as they hoped!)

Mine was a while ago haha. I've definitely replayed it in my head plenty of times. I kinda agree because it's 15 minutes and like 4 questions but still. You always want that stuff to go great.

Hoping someone could provide perspective. I went complete in early Nov and havent heard anything since. Should I give up hope for ever getting a JS1? Seems like I was an auto ding

Don’t give up hope! Judging from previous admissions spreadsheets, some admits waited that long or longer for a JS1.

I've been waiting since late September. Don't give up hope!

To the folks who know way more than me, does Harvard's status checker do anything after "Complete," or do you just go complete, and then cross your fingers for a JS1 from there?

The second bit - it doesn't change after it goes complete.
