it's quite frustrating that THIS is the yr HLS may change things up, so we're all somewhat left in the dark until probably thanksgiving, when we may be better able to gauge how different (or similar) JR is handling things.

would suck to get a waitlist letter instead of a JR2 tho haha, but better early than late!

because the fate of the remainder of your life depends partly on your performance during this interview tomorrow.

That's hyperbole if I've ever seen it.


not really, it's qualified enough.

hope some of you guys start hearing back soon...



Maybe she got a phone interview and that got passed down the gossip chain as an acceptance?

That would make sense - plus some people just lie. I knew of a girl who was going around telling people she was going to HLS... the summer before she even applied.

i wouldn't call it a gossip "chain", but it is hearsay, so take it or leave it. i can see all you future lawyers furrowing your brows in disapproval.

don't mean to freak anyone out, just thought if anyone cared about this it would be TLS ppls. also, who's to say JR isn't speeding things along this year?

I think most people are grateful for the information, they just legitimately doubt its veracity.

it is just very doubtful because no one on LSN has received a JS2 yet and no one on TLS has either (assuming they'd post)...and some on LSN and TLS have AMAZING numbers coughT14marbletopcough.

congrats, you two! a 9/17 and 10/15 submission... JR is so unpredictable, sigh. we're getting close to the 2 month mark for september applicants. hopefully the onslaught of WL/R's isn't coming just yet for non-interviewees.

congrats all who just got it

lawschoolkrr, don't worry about it. Most people don't think it went well, but still get that call back. As long as you didn't say something incredibly stupid, it won't hurt
