It seems like most adcomms don't start reading apps until Oct/Nov...but does anyone have any idea if they generally read them in order? For example, would an app submitted Sept. 15th be read before an app submitted Sept. 30th?

I'm just trying to figure out the exact "time vs. polish" of my app - if I should start really buckling down or if I still have some time.

Yep... the general consensus is that they're read in order. Usually people who've submitted in September get contacted before people who've submitted in October, even if the school doesn't start contacting people until January (like Columbia)

If you ED to Coulumbia say ~mid september, do you think you'd get a word back before Dec. 15? I just notice that a lot of other schools have an ED deadline of the 15th, and it'd be nice to pull a scramble and use it again if/when rejected/waitlisted...

this might be another silly question - but is there any benefit to applying early even if you are taking the LSAT in oct.... so they would have to wait to the end of oct for my lsat anyway?

thanks!

How long does it take them to process transcripts?

Hmm I don't really remember. A few weeks I think. I had 2 schools originally and one of them took a lot longer than the other. I hope its the quick one that was my current UG hah

Really? I sent in mine a few weeks ago and it was processed in a matter of days (like 2 or 3 tops). Maybe that's because I sent it in during a low-traffic period?

Didn't want to make a whole new thread for this since its a dumb question, so I'll try in here since its about apps.

What counts as previously "enrolled" at a law school? Seat deposit/deferral? Or actually attending a class?

Thanks if anyone knows.
