Prepping to apply.

Postby tartugas » Thu Jul 08, 2010 8:09 pm

I'm in my mid-30's and am applying for entrance in the Fall of 2011. Now that the LSAT is out of the way, I was wondering what other people are doing to get ready for putting together applications. What do you need to have on hand and ready to go in order to be able to get applications in quickly and efficiently? Also, are there advantages to getting apps in early (Sept.-Oct), as opposed to waiting a little while to get them in?

Thanks in advance.

Yes there is an advantage to applying early. In order to do this you need to have your LORs, PS, DS, Why X and Addedum ready before the first day of apps.

Perfectly said. Truer advice cannot be given about apps.

For most schools, getting your apps in asap is always credited.

I'm also getting ready to apply. I'm working on my PS, writing addenda, polishing resume, securing LORs, and flipping through the actual apps from last year. I think this is pretty much all you can be doing

Edit: woops they beat me
