Application turn around time question

Postby ljames152 » Tue Sep 06, 2011 9:35 pm

I'll be somewhat of a late applicant. I'm planning to have my app materials sans LSAT (taking in December) in by November. Assuming everything goes okay with the LSAT, how soon could I expect to have acceptances, waitlists, or outright denials?

Considering your app won't go complete until mid-late January, you probably won't hear back until March, and if any of those are waitlists, they can keep you on virtually forever. I applied last cycle with a December score; first response (GULC) was March 11, last response (Cornell) was May 10. I can basically just speak to T14 where I was above one median and below another, though. For schools lower ranked where I was at one median and way above the other, I received very quick turnaround, 2-4 weeks or so.

I'm not sure how that will translate for URM though.

February through March for most, but don't expect cycle to be over until July.

How about for those who apply as soon as applications can be submitted? I intend on applying, with all materials (LSAT, transcripts, and LORs) received at LSAC already, the first day I can submit my applications.

October through January, depending on the school, and the occasional one in February.
