Just applied this week - lost chance?

Postby BlairLeigh » Thu Jan 07, 2010 11:11 am

I just applied to my schools this week and although I know Im not late, im probably later then most. How bad does this affect me? Do you think they have already accepted most spots by now? Im not sure how all of this app process works ... =(

Thanks!

You are probably okay. I applied in late Jan. last year and it only hurt me at a couple of schools.

It really depends. If you're applying at the T14, it will probably hurt your chances a bit. If you're applying anywhere else, I don't think it will matter much. It really only matters, I think, if you are on the fence, such as having an LSAT or GPA right at the school's median. If you have a LSAT a point or two above median, I doubt applying now is going to hurt you at all.
