When is it "legit" to start posting for 2012?

Postby ThomasMN » Sat Apr 09, 2011 2:08 am

Given that the cycle for applicants to 2011 will be ending fairly soon, when is it "legit" to start posting for the next cycle? Also, does anyone have any idea when law schools will begin posting their application requirements for next year?

I've been posting about the 2012 cycle for the past 2 years. If your question is relevant to what you are currently doing, then ask it, if it is completely speculative and/or devoid of any substance to the current day, then don't.

I think I just found a kindred spirit, which is both slightly frightening and soothing.

I get that more often than you probably think.

You might have some information or an opinion on this, but what are your feelings about the 2012 cycle? I know that the number of applications is down considerably this year, and I get the feeling that the 2012 cycle will probably end up being a little less competitive than this year. Just from perusing law school numbers it seems that some schools have had it quite a bit easier than others.

You're not allowed to post about the 2012 cycle until August 1st. Violate this and risk a ban.

I think there may be some legitimacy to that view, however I don't see any way that it will effect anything I do in my cycle, other than the actual results.

Full disclosure: I joined this site while drunk in the middle of the night on Christmas to ask about law school admissions factors that wouldn't be relevant for another two years, and I've been banned at least 2 times that I can remember.
I stand by my earlier statements, however.

I have the same thoughts. Just crossing my fingers on scholarship money next year.
