Just got my JR1 email!

Can someone who is familiar with the stats tell me whether ppl getting JR1 (or TS1) emails this late (i.e. week of 11/16) have historically gotten JR2s (or TS2s) before Thanksgiving?

GPA near median, LSAT above 170+ but below median. I am an international student though from a unique country, so maybe boost.

I applied October 27, went under review Nov 2. JR1 Today. Should I be excited?


YES!

Also, my 100th post! YAY!

I don't have any stats handy, but I know that last year there were at least a couple LSN people that got their TS1 emails this last week before Thanksgiving and still got acceptance calls before the holiday.

Congrats you two!

Congrats to both of you. Go4hls - you need to rack up 80 more posts before your JR1 for luck.

I think predicting when you'll hear back is pretty impossible. I was just trying to let you know that you could get good news as early as next week. It could take much longer, and I wouldn't be disheartened if you don't hear from JR again for a while.

Thanks for the info Lysis. This is good because it means I can hear back before going home for thxgiving. But it's bad because if I don't hear back before thxgiving then I'll start worrying all over again. LOL, gotta love it.

Well, I wouldn't be disheartened if zamd doesn't hear. The craziness I'll go through if JR doesn't get back to me is another matter... (<3 JR...please call)

+1 i would love to know. last yr's TS2 thread had 0 ppl who posted w/ an early JR1 and did not receive a JR2 by early december.

however, im just scared this yr he'll do things differently (more JR1s? earlier waitlists? etc.)

This is what worries me. Maybe they're interviewing more people than they'll take, relative to last year.... Or maybe nothing's changed and good news will come in about one week....

I would say those who get a JR1 before ~11/20, i.e. the group that will get their JR2's before Thanksgiving.

When do you think waitlist/rejections will start coming out? I know they waited until the end last year, but it seems like that won't be the case this year.

so far it doesnt seem that off at all; maybe like a day or two. last yr first JR1 invites went out on 10/16, this yr 10/19...but 17 and 18 were the weekend.

Go a bit farther back in this thread. Apparently JR acknowledged that leaving WL/rejects until April was a mistake and that most applicants would hear back within 2 months of review. Stay tuned to see how this actually plays out....

Yeah I saw that. If that's the case, then two months for the first applicants (early september) would be coming up soon (ie next week). I wonder if there's a difference in the 2 month timelines for people who get JR1s and those who don't. Its possible that HLS is going to reject all those who don't stand a chance for the JR1 within the 2 month deadline, and then keep the JR1s on hold until more apps come in.

I think he meant two months from when they went under review. Most people (JR1's or not) who submitted in Sept/Oct went under review towards the end of Oct, so that whole batch should hear one way or another by the end of December.
