Sumbit App before all recs/transcripts received?

Postby s0ph1e2007 » Sun Oct 17, 2010 5:27 pm

LSAC has only one of my four recommendations, although they should receive them all this week along with my transcript.
Do I wait two weeks (which would be up to the release of the Oct. LSAT release date), or do I
a) submit completed applications immediately (before, even, the required # of Recs, or my transcripts, have been received)
b) wait for just the required no. of Recs and my transcripts to be received and submit (assuming that LSAC then forwards along further recommendations as they receive them for schools they are already assigned)....

or is choice b) risking the possibility that they would read and make a decision on my application before receiving some really helpful recommendations?


THANKS!

If you want all 4 LORs to be included, then you have to wait for them to post before applying. If you submit now, you'll be complete as soon as the required number of LORs are posted (0-3 depending on the school) without even knowing which ones those are.
