Do you really believe that? I think that I would much rather never get a JR1 than get one but not a JR2. Especially with my borderline stats, I feel like the probability of my not getting a JR 2 if I were to get a JR 1 would be much higher than normal.


Are you kidding me? It's far better to be on the edge of your seat waiting for a call from Harvard than to be doing the same for Cornell, Fordham or Cardozo. Don't be an ingrate. You got the JR1. That's an accomplishment in and of itself, and tons of people would KILL for that opportunity. I would murder my entire immediate family.


lol.

much better not to get a JR1 than JR1 with no JR2.

Welcome to the club!

I got into Cornell today, and the admissions lady was super nice...compensates a little bit.

Anxiously waiting for my new Dec score too (the thread I am hanging onto for that JR2).

Let other things fill your mind - take the JR1/no JR2 thought off your mind...it's healthier for you.

Only one person from our group was set free today? This makes me sad.

Ugh. This is weak.

Looking at LSN, a rejection would be very believable if my GPA were maybe .2 - .3 lower, but then why the early JR1 (11/6)? Confusing.

If I get W/L or rejected, I will have the highest GPA of anyone with my LSAT score to be W/L or rejected by Harvard in LSN history. Anyone else have a fun statistic to share?

I thought some were bound to get out - but only one person is pretty disheartening. Goodbye for now, thread! I'll see you next Monday!

that's what i don't understand. why did they contact me so quickly for a JR1 if they were ambivalent? maybe they don't thoroughly look at our apps until after JR1.

anyway, does this get any easier, veteran members? i feel like i've been alternating between the five stages of grief, heh.

After I missed the pre-Thanksgiving batch, I grieved for a few days. Now I'm back to not expecting anything from them. If I get accepted, great. If not, I'll have some other great options. That should apply to anyone in this thread.

well i was away from internet for a while and missed the excitement (or lack of it) on monday, but i totally feel you on this one. they totally are leading me on (now 2 missed rounds). as for getting easier, i think it sinks into a chronic, dull sadness. is that easier?

congrats to janer! oh man, i feel a little bit of hope (and congrats to janer on upenn too, right?) anyway, glad to see you leave the club. :D

can someone fill me in on the "mondays = jr2" connection?
I'm new to the thread. I, too, got a JR1 (in mid nov) but have yet to receive a JR2
does the school only accept on mondays?

from what i heard, getting a jr1 is a very positive sign. But if we haven't heard back from them yet, does that mean the admissions ppl are thinking twice?

Dunno how I never saw this thread. I feel like I'm in the old guard here.

much less interest in TLS, though...

Not sure this will make anyone feel better, but at least you guys are one step ahead of most applicants who don't even get a JR1?

You were worthy of consideration, and that says a lot!

Best of luck to everyone.

there was another person in the harvard main thread who had a mid-nov JR1 and got a JR2 on tuesday. that's 2, yay :)

and to ilovecroissants, i guess that destroys the mondays theory. apparently they can come other days.

Good luck guys! I have my JR1 Wednesday so I guess I'm in the club for now. Hopefully we all have a short stay from here on out.

Anybody leave? I know there was a URM batch yesterday (which didn't include me, as you can tell by me continuing to post here lol).

Is there anyone here who had a JR1 the week of Dec 14-18 but didn't receive a JR2 this Monday?
