More than a page and a half are still pending on LSN. I don't know how many are orphaned but I bet you more than that are still pending. If you sort by completion date they have gotten through the first week of March and most of us are after that so we still wait. This is a de facto WL until the rejection. They are under no obligation to review our apps since we are so late.


And by completion date you mean the date that the status checker said "file under review" right?

Aw Yeff. So sorry. I have a feeling my decision is coming any day. I have a sub 25 lsat.

Thanks.

And one more thing (sorry)- What is the JR2? was scrolling through old posts and didn't realize there was two types of JRs...



JR2 is Jill Rubenstein, his wife. Together they make up the HLS admissions team.



ummm...

JR1 is when you get the phone interview, and JR2 is when you get the second phone call from Josh Rubenstein, with the admission offer.

For the record, I don't remember running into Jill Rubenstein at the Accepted Students Weekend :lol:

Uh-oh. I hope Josh Rubenstein really likes Peruvian lilies then because I sent him like 100 of them.

not all hope is gone.

Enoteen on LSN got the JR2 acceptance on 4/26. I guess they do still have a few flat out acceptances to give.

yeah at this point if you get a JR1 I would think its almost a given that you get a JR2 and very quickly.

Just got waitlisted.

Given my numbers, I'm actually really surprised by this. But I'll take it.

Congrats! I looked at your profile and we have similar numbers, except my GPA is higher but my LSAT is lower. I also have a graduate/professional degree, so your case gives me some hope.

I am anxious for a decision! When did you go complete?

I don't remember the actual date. I submitted my application sometime during the first week of January.

What's your degree in? And if you don't mind my asking, why are you switching to Law?

I think my screen name probably gives it away ;) I am not "switching," I am trying to do and combine both!
