If I haven't received a degree yet do I leave this field blank?

Consider listing expected graduation date along with your major--for example: History, June,2011.
This can be significant for those expecting to graduate during the summer prior to entering law school. I know instances of applicants being denied admission during a particular cycle because the law school didn't know of the applicant's intention to take summer courses in order to complete undergraduate school & therefore was under the impression that the applicnt would not have a degree prior to matriculating at law school.
