That is so exciting, congrats!

Would you mind PMing me your real numbers?

It looks like those of use with high lsats and moderate gpas (<3.9) are going to be waiting a while.

+1. I'm wondering the same thing. It says to reply if the phone number and/or scheduled time won't work, but I don't know if I should be confirming the number/time he sent.

Those who've had their JR1s already, what did you do?

I know! I hope they haven't decided to revamp things and put more weight on gpa.

seriously, it looks like there's a definite pattern emerging. still too early to draw real conclusions but everything we've seen so far indicates it's been 3.9+ GPA people with varied LSATs, rather than having an LSAT floor and varying the GPAs. for what it's worth, even if it's correct that their MO so far has been targeting GPA types, it doesn't mean it has to represent any sort of shift in overall admissions plan, could just mean they're for whatever reason targeting the GPA side of things early.

being a big LSAT and <3.8 GPA person (with H as my #1) i've got an obvious interest in this. certainly i don't expect to get a JR1 until they work their way down the GPA spectrum a bit

FYI - since the stats in my profile are fudged, my LSAT is ~170 and my GPA is ~3.9.

It makes me consider sending in an updated transcript, as it changes my GPA from 3.89 to 3.91. Hmmm.

For the couple people who asked: I didn't reply to confirm my interview time. I think replying when you don't need to reschedule would be unnecessary. Congrats to all those who have got the JR1 so far!

I didn't send a confirmation email either. I thought it would just annoy them.

I haven't wanted to out my numbers to too many people, but I want to add my data point. I have a low GPA and high LSAT and got an interview scheduled.

thanks for the data, and congrats!

may we ask how low of a GPA? are we just talking sub-3.9 here, or are you below their 25th %ile (below 3.7)?

I am a traditional splitter. Below 25th, above 75th.

Is your average above the 75th? Or only the higher of the two scores?
