Do you know what percent get JR1 to begin with? Granted my LSAT was low, but I figured I'd at least get a phone interview.
If I remember my figures right (and most of my information is from last year) I think there are roughly 7,000 applicants each year and of this number 800-1200 get interviews depending on the year. There was a tls post about it last year in the
harvard class of 2012, I think. Basically, about 15% get interviews, I think...
nvm. I went and found my source of information: --LinkRemoved--
Bascially, this was under Toby Stock, but he makes 1000-1100 calls (out of 7000 applicants) and roughly 800-850 (I think) of those get admitted (hence my 80% from before.) I don't know exactly what Josh will do, but I assume the model is roughly similar, as the numbers are unlikely to change too much.
Also, in answer to your assumption....generally phone interviews are given to students HLS is strongly considering admitting, not as a test of fitness or anything, like a normal interview. It's mainly to make sure there are no factors that should PREVENT you from being accepted, rather than a test to determine IF they should accept you.
