T2/T3/T4 -- Applying in Jan?

Postby vanillawafer » Tue Jan 19, 2010 1:09 am

I've had some issues getting my transcripts processed by LSAC. 1 of my 3 schools sent them in originally in the beginning of December, but they were never received. They had to resend them a few weeks back, and I'm now waiting for them to be processed by LSAC so I can send in my applications. Probably the end of January.

I know you need to apply early to the higher ranked schools, but what about schools that are in the lower tiers? Specifically, a few law schools in Minnesota (WM, UST), Maine, Vermont, & Vegas. My numbers aren't fantastic, so I'm not a sure bet. Am I at a huge disadvantage or is this a normal time-frame for lower ranked schools?

Any help appreciated. Thanks!

You're still late, even for lower ranked schools. If an improved LSAt could help you, maybe look at this as an opportunity to wait until next cycle and retake?

I would call the schools you plan to apply to. I asked some schools in this range about taking the February LSAT. Most said that is fine. So I think you'll be okay

Generally - yes get them in early, but late is better than nothing. You should be fine for most schools.

Anyone else with experience who can give me a fairly solid answer?
