Question about deadlines

Postby laww » Fri Aug 23, 2013 11:52 am

I'm taking the LSAT in October.

I hope to have my LORs ready by mid/end of September.

I am planning on sending out apps as soon as I get my score.

However, I am worried that sending out my app in November will be detrimental to my chances of getting in.

I'm a splitter and I'm hoping to do the ED UVA/EA Cornell, ED Penn if rejected @ UVA dealio but will that be possible if I send out apps as soon as I get my result in November?

Basically, don't worry about this at all.

So I should be fine even as a splitter?

I am reading about other people who are sending their apps in like a couple weeks.

Is it FCFS or how does it work?

Thanks and sorry if I'm asking basic questions.. I don't want to mess this process up obviously lol

TLS wisdom says that November apps are still pretty early. Since you're taking the LSAT in October, schools will know why you didn't submit applications right away.

If you're EDing, there is literally no difference between sending in your ED app in November vs. January at UVA. At Penn, there's probably a very minor penalty for applying ED during round 2.

Depending on your stats, I might consider EDing to Penn first if you want biglaw.

Hopefully, there isn't another "incident" like their was for the 2012 October score reports. People are still probably waiting on results.
