Topanga: That's exactly what I was worried about after my call: the fact that he didn't ask me any questions and that it was under six minutes. Turns out to not have been a big deal. Congrats on finishing it to you too underdawg!

How were you on the phone? Were you a bumbling fool like me?

Just had my TS1. It went okay, I think, although I'm now constantly thinking of all the intelligent, witty things I could have said but didn't. He said "very good" a lot, and asked a couple follow-up questions. About 7 minutes total, but he didn't ask if I had any questions. Apparently my app hasn't gone to the committee yet. It seems like he just picks applications that interest him and then attaches his phone conversation comments to the file before passing it on. Best of luck to everyone else!
(And I think he purposefully doesn't ask if you have any questions. He probably doesn't want you to force yourself to ask questions that aren't really necessary. He talks about being annoyed with these types of questions on his blog.)
Toby Stock, the Dean of Admissions at Harvard, calls people who are likely to be admitted for a short phone interview. The first call (TS1), is the actual interview, and the second call (TS2) is the acceptance. I believe somewhere in the neighborhood of 80% of TS1 recipients get a TS2, and interviewing with Dean Stock is required for admission.
Communicate now with those who not only know what a legal education is, but can offer you worthy advice and commentary as you complete the three most educational, yet challenging years of your law related post graduate life.
It seems like TS2s have been coming early in the week after your TS1, if that is what you're waiting on. If you're still waiting for your TS1, then he will definitely call the next time you're really busy and in a situation where you shouldn't answer your phone.
