Application Timing

Postby bucky0486 » Tue Dec 14, 2010 11:37 pm

I've taken the LSAT, received my grade, written 100 drafts of my personal statement to make it as perfect as possible, completed all of my applications, but I still cannot apply. I'm still waiting for a professor to send in a letter of recommendation.

Should I go ahead and submit my applications even though the schools won't receive it until the LOR arrives?

How badly am I getting screwed by waiting so long to apply?

Most law schools allow you to apply with not all of your materials completed. Most will allow a prof to send in letters after you submit, and sometimes even after you go complete.

But I'd be careful, because if the school does not require LORs, or only requires one or something, they'll consider your app complete without your additional letter.

Call the schools if you're really worried.
