Who here hasn't submitted yet (late December)?

Postby idfatq » Sun Dec 19, 2010 10:20 pm

Just wanted to know if there were more of us out there; all these "I went complete September 12th" "I'm in at xyz law w/ full scholarship!" "Just got my 6th acceptance" threads are making me anxious.... surely I can't be the only one who hasn't submitted yet, right?

I haven't submitted to Penn yet (damn mandatory extra essay), if that makes you feel any better. There are still a lot of people who haven't submitted, but probably not too many on this site.. look at the nature of this site

yeah no worries...TLS does law school applications with steroids.

I know plenty of people that applied Jan & got into T6.

I haven't submitted yet, but all my applications are simply waiting on an LSAT score(I just took it for the first time in December).

I know of several folks who've submitted in January and been accepted to a T14.

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.

Apply - Apply - Apply. Don't listen to all the nay-sayers.... Yes- we lose out on some of the benefits of applying early, but we are going for it. If things don't work out, we've done most of the work, early application process should be very simple: we already know the process; just need to rewrite/rework essays. But I personally would rather at least try this cycle.
(I am also applying with fee waivers - paying might have made a difference).

I haven't applied yet either--good to know there are others!

Anybody know how long it takes for LSAC to get stuff to the law schools? I'm anticipating sending an addendum to my schools to explain a gap in my LSAT scores (at least, I need one and am hoping to God and all things good for one) but I'm leery of just sending it along with my file in case, you know, disaster strikes and I don't get that jump.

What do you mean? You haven't applied yet? Then as soon as you get your score, attach an addendum to your application.. If you want to send in your app before your score, then just email the addendum to admissions

Still have to write the PS, waiting for the Dec score, waiting for my Prof, who said there would be no problem sending the LOR on its way before graduation, to just get back from me when I just asked how things were going five days ago (I graduated 9 days ago). Hoping to send apps at least by Jan 10.

I can just email the addendum directly and don't have to go through LSAC?

checking in here as well. Finished with pretty much everything except my PS. I also plan on sending out my apps before my Dec score comes out. Anybody know when the admissions offices' close this week [or if they're already closed]?

Right? Great enough to spot that typo anyway. I'm not that efficient or especially skilled at writing things like a PS, but I have nothing else to do, so I think I'll do a good enough job that it won't hurt me.

Someone on here wrote their PS in a weekend. It can be done.
I spent about a month on mine. Two topics. About 15 drafts lol.

I have not yet submitted to about 4-5 schools. But I have submitted to my top choices.

Somehow I managed that in a day/weekend! (Luckily)! I think it's because I had a really clear idea of what I was interested in at the school, how my background could contribute, and how it fit in with my goals. :)

Literally applied to 6 schools tonight, and I'm finishing my Why Penn/Why Michigan essays before I send it to those schools. I'm also thinking about writing a Why GW essay just to see, in case they offer me money.

I don't think we're late; I was worried about this earlier and the broad consensus was that we're on time. Better to make sure your packet is nice and neat than to apply early if you would be unprepared. As for the talk about the PS taking a while: Yeah, it does, but try to send your best work and not your earliest work.

Now I'm excited/nervous about decisions!!!

My head started turning. I'm trying to finish up three more by tonight, but it's not going over so well. I've been working on them for a month as well. Sometimes even though I know what I would like to say i don't know how to put it down on paper.

How long were yours? Mine are bit longer than half of page (single spaced).

I haven't applied yet...also waiting on on December LSAT score...I, however, am only applying to three schools this cycle, two of which do not have application fees, just as sort of a feeder in to the system. I already have my plan B if not accepted anywhere for next fall. I did start writing all of my letters tonight, though, which seems to be a pretty long process. I would recommend getting everything in the app complete before your LSAT score arrives, so that once it does, you can send those puppies off.

I still have 6 schools who I have yet to apply to. They are ready to go, but I dont have the $$ to ship them off. At this point, Im not too stressed about it. I have them out of the door soon.

I went for the interview at NU in Sept. Did not feel like writing the essays, and could not find the appropriate person to fill out the CPE. I still don't know if I will apply. Too late for the AJD anyway.
