No, I thought that I shouldn't respond unless I wanted to change the time. There's no need to clog his inbox with superfluous emails; they only serve to show how nervous you are.


But what if my cell phone breaks. No need to provide a land line? Just wait for the call??? Anyone else?

Also, what are my chances at a JR2 if I'm getting a JR1 at this point in the cycle. I submitted my applications in mid/late Nov. so the turnaround has been quite fast.


Anyone?


Need your numbers (LSAT & GPA) along with date submitted for accurate guess. But the the basic odds of a JR2 after a JR1 are around 70%

The quick turnaround sounds good, but it's really difficult to quantify your chances based on the time of year. Any JR1 has a strong chance of a JR2.

Yeah, so just a minute ago I was on my iPhone and the call got dropped. Argh. I will have a heart attack if it does this during my JR1.

So how common is it to get an email that encourages you to apply to HLS? I was planning to apply anyways but I got that email from them a month or two ago. It did not include a fee waiver which I found to be an interesting mixed signal.

dropped the call during my JR1, just called him right back and he picked up, it wasn't a problem at all. i wouldn't stress -- you'll be fine!

Is it "DEAN Rubenstein" or "Mr. Rubenstein"?

i really think you should think of it as a sociopath-screen and that the status of your app as it currently is (in both strengths and weaknesses) is how you will be viewed as an applicant. don't sweat it; you're normal! :)


Actually, I would think sociopaths would interview very well, probably better than non-sociopaths.

(Although I do agree with the general point that there can't be more than a few people a year who are accepted/rejected because of the interview.)

HLS does not give fee waivers except for financial need.

Did you ask if I'm a URM for getting that email? If your question was to me, the answer is no
