How many JS1 waves have there been so far? Is it being tracked anywhere? :) Would love to follow this, if so!

You're reading too much into it. There's no evidence of more JS1's, and no evidence their admissions practices have changed a lot. This cycle will probably be roughly on par with 2012-2013, which were great cycles for applicants.

I know we're all freaking out (trust me, I was really hoping for a JS2 call) but it's only December. Go take a look at the LSN Jan/Feb acceptances vs. December and you'll calm down.


this is wise. if you're not a top candidate, it doesn't make sense for them to accept you this early. way more calls to come out in jan/feb/march.

I believe there have been 6 or 7 JS1 waves so far.

Yes!!! There are. I saw one girl last year who didn't get her JS1 until March (even though she applied in September) and she got in.

Don't despair just yet.

Any JS2s NOT above both 75ths? Also, anyone have a guess of approximate number of JS2s today?

Y'all can I ask a dumb question? How do you use LSN to figure out the waves?

no idea how many JS2s, but if you look at past data, almost all the reported Dec JS2s are above or near both 75ths.
