Apply before transcripts arrive

Postby Katherine » Tue Jan 05, 2010 8:55 pm

I've finished just about everything application-wise, but just sent off for my transcripts to be sent to lsac today. Can I submit applications before they arrive?

yes, but they won't be complete until LSAC receives your transcripts, and schools don't generally look at an application until it's complete anyway.

Yeah, do it as soon as possible. They won't review your application until everything arrives, but having 1/2 of your stuff there will likely boost your spot in their reviewing order. I just sent my apps in last night without my degree granting institutions transcript... thought it wouldn't get received for another couple weeks, but got received today... so you never know when...
