How late is too late?

Postby lawskyandhutch » Fri Dec 17, 2010 3:12 am

Some apps I finished in early to mid November, but others a little late. Is Nov. 22 too late for Columbia and mid-December too late for Stanford?

I have 171 and 3.8ish.

Just to clarify, when I say too late, I mean will it hurt my odds a lot.

You're starting to get into that territory, sure. Not sure if it's "a lot".

I think post-Christmas is late, meaning it could negatively affect chances.

Feb 2. That's when its too late. You will submit regardless right? So just get those suckers in. IMO, It's worth submitting even on the deadline because you'll always wonder if you didn't.


Edit: assuming it is somewhere you would actually like to go.
