but he had a JR1, right? 3.9/176 and 3.86/179 (even on retake) with no JR1 seems strange. maybe it's the submission date thing JR mentioned in his blog post.
This guy applied in late December with high stats (3.85/180), around the time Sogui said he applied, and was already accepted:http://lawschoolnumbers.com/JohnnyTrojan08
The submission date could be a factor, but the holds/silence for some people and not others seems really random.
oh, my submission date comment was directed toward my own confusion as to why Sogui and invisiblesun haven't even had JR1's, since it seems like many JR1's are given out on the basis of numbers alone. like, perhaps the submission timeline accounts for why carterth had a JR1 but sogui and invisiblesun have not had JR1's. i have no doubt that the applicants who are stellar overall are getting their due JR1's and JR2's in a timely fashion
Blatant anti-sogui and invisiblesun trolling.
In all seriousness, I think it may have had to do with the fact that I was held with an LSAT score around the HLS 25th %ile and a GPA around their median, and retook and got a 179 after I had been held. The only major acceptance batch since then has been the 3/8 batch, of which most (if not all) had been JR1->hold->JR2s. Also, I feel like it would be unrealistic to expect to hear anything just a week after the scores were released. Given that JR said that whether you were held after getting a JR1 or without one was more of a function of the timing of your app, I doubt he'd just take a bunch of previous JR1s and offer so few holds JR1s. I'm saving the majority of my anguish for if a new batch of JR1s comes out and my inbox is left hungry for one.
Edit for side notes: I went complete in November, but I may just be treated like a very last minute applicant because of the new LSAT.
Also, JohnnyTrojan was a 3.85/180 and a TFA alum. That might help explain why he heard back so fast.
