any other interviewees still waiting on a response........
any thoughts on a ii wave?
20:22
same ^^
i applied end of nov, never got an ii but missed R wave earlier this week/today. could i still get an ii?
InshAllah
15:51
Yep, you very well might! Just hold out a bit longer and keep praying to God :)
I'm in the same boat
90 percent of the people who applied around the same time as me has gotten some kind of response back--either an R, a II plus acceptance, or WL
but I've gotten crickets lol
I'm hopeful that maybe they will consider me for the March II's but who knows, maybe I'm destined for a long and torturous march to the WL/R land in April lol.
I suspect that they reach out to their most coveted applicants first with II's
the people who have numbers and great softs
and those of us who are splitters maybe hear back in march or something, depending on whether they have met their goal median and what their class is shaping to look like.
my lsat is at their median but my gpa is way below so i expect that might be the big issue, I don't know

Watch me get an A and a full ride. :) :) #inmydreams
LOL. hey you never know!
23:13
Any predictions when the next waves of II might start up? Trying to keep "healthy" expectations (I check my email every ten minutes)

I applied to HLS on the 14th and yale the 15th lmao
InshAllah
13:50
@CalculatingGroovyPelican: dang, that's clutch lol. Good luck! Trust God, he is good
no wave today huh
17:49
Did any interviews go out today? I saw some people say they are pretty much done with interviews. I applied 2/13 so is it over for me?
18:14
Some interviews seemed to have gone out in the last few hours. No idea if it's over for this cycle though... holding out there's another week haha
15:59
Got an ii yesterday 2/22. Submitted on 2/11, marked completed 2/13. Fingers crossed. My LSAT is around the median but GPA below so fingers crossed
LSD suggests no more IIs from HLS until May for a few WL applicants. At the same point in time last cycle, about 225 IIs went out and there are around 83% as many applicants this cycle as last year, so that would be 187ish IIs - there have been 187 IIs to go out. Soft R club raise your hand :(
got an ii an hour ago personally
(applied 1/29, complete 1/31)
18:04
applied 2/14, complete 2/15... if i dont get an II today am I R
Congrats Chilly! happy to be wrong on this one for all the II recipients :)
Anyone who applied in January completely ghosted without an II?
InshAllah
18:50
Congrats everyone who got ii yesterday and today! You’ll do so well! trust God, he is good! :)
