Got the call earlier today, but I haven't received the email yet - is that strange?

Right there with ya friend. You never know, but if/when it's official we can share a toast at the Ding Bar :)


+2 FWIW, they're not even 2/3 of the way through the JS1 waves (if this year parallels last year). I'm adjusting expectations too (sitting over here with my 171), but I don't think any of us need to give up just yet!

Already calling the account name 2022hopeful, cya there 8)

2/3 isn't that far, true. After that uchi waitlist though expectations are low. If I get a JS1 at this point I'd die


Don't let them steal that furry blue spirit! You'll probably wind up in at both HLS AND Chicago.


I'm flattered, but keep your head up maybeman! I'm with you on that Uchi wailist too (and based on your numbers, I'm farther down than you). It's never too late. And worst case scenario...DING BAR CRAWL! 8)

You two are the true GOATs. Praying for JS1s all around

So I shouldn't be too upset about not getting js2 today because i interviewed in the second week of January right? This wave was people who got JS1 before the holidays right?

Much appreciated :D But all I really want is a Columbia acceptance!! Their latest wave killed me. I should stop bumping this thread though, sorry folks.

Lol my JS1 was before the holidays :( Real talk many more people are accepted Feb/March so I don't think this wave is particularly worth stressing over!

K good... Good news is there seems to be a healthy # of kjd acceptances, which gives me some hope.

Are you supposed to try and divulge new info about yourself during your interview? I'm thinking now that I more or less reiterated stuff in my app.

You definitely should not be upset. That would be an insanely fast turnaround. I had my JS1 a week before the first wave of JS2s and was not in that wave, but was in this one.

AFAIK, not a single person who received a JS2 today interviewed after the first week of January. We’re safe.

Asked this before, but my post got buried: is there a best time post-JS1 to send an updated (4.0) graduate transcript?

I found my admit letter within the status checker. Likewise, I needed further proof!

Thinking back on my interview, I feel like I was so nervous that at least 50% of what I said was absolute fluff. I really was convinced I would get dinged solely on the basis of a flubbed JS1. But I got in today! So I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I had my interview today and I am wondering how to send a thank you note? I didn't catch my interviewer's name so would I just send it to the general admission email?

You don't need to do this! Source: didn't do it, got a JS2
