Plus that's too cold for you :lol:


You said it! Although I would consider a 33% reduction in coldness as a part of the AJD benefits.

If you took the December LSAT and it's your only score is there any point to submitting before scores are released?

Yes. So that your file is "complete" as soon as the score is reported.

(Otherwise it takes 2 days to 3 weeks for your lsac lors and transcript etc to be sent to the school and processed).

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).

Who is nay-saying anything?



If you go over the countless post regarding applying late; there are numerous opinions on this matter and most are negative or rather - wait till the next cycle if you haven't applied before the Dec LSAT or are depending on the Feb LSAT.

Still not applied here either, and have quite a ways to go. A lot depends on where my LSAT score from this December falls given my GPA.

i am absolutely in the same boat...so i decided that i am going to do as much as i can until i receive the LSAT score, and if it is bad, i don't have to apply this cycle...there is always next cycle, which we would have a head start on!

Yeah, I've been keeping this in mind, but at the same time carefully trying not to consider it an option. I do not want to fall into thinking, "Oh screw it, I'll just apply next cycle and get things in better shape." I'm not so far behind that I can't still make it.

Yes, but I still haven't written the essays, have no CPE writer, and Berkeley doesn't match NU's scholarships if I get any.

Thanks! I am certainly very grateful. Even if it stops at B and P I would be set, so I couldn't be happier.

Good luck to you too!

Oh.

I had thought that CAS wouldn't generate and send their report if they couldn't complete it.

I haven't applied but I'm not too worried. I was at an admissions panel with stanford, cornell, columbia, and chicago and freaked out because I couldn't take the October LSAT (luckily they didn't know my name. I was such a mess. shaking/in tears/etc.) and all the deans said that while there may be less spaces, they'll give consideration for why my application was delayed by so long.

Lots of people get into law school and apply in January. Now February/March may be a problem...

Panel at my school. We're pretty isolated so they try to bring people to us. hmm, actually maybe Chicago wasn't there. It turned into a east coast vs. California fight a little bit.

I don't have an LSAT score, so I am there with you. Nothing out there yet, and probably won't be for a few more weeks or a month or something.

I don't think they really care. They are not obligated to accept you so to them it doesn't matter, and your not required to submit your application on Oct 1-for example. When you apply is your personal choice. Now you're you'll be at disadvantage but thats your problem not theirs.

My applications are all pretty much set to go except for one LOR which my professor is taking FOREVER to get in. Trying not to get stressed out, but it's become pretty bothersome at this point. I had planned on finishing apps in early/mid-december, and now his procrastinating has put me in a bad situation.

Oh well. Positive thoughts, positive thoughts..

+1,000

I spent months working on my LOR people to get their recs in. I made the mistake of giving them TOO MUCH time to complete them (i.e. sent out in May, gave Dec deadline). I was trying to be way ahead of the game, but they just simply forgot about them. I had to email/call at least once a day until they finally finished. It's just not as important to them as it is to us. I'd stay on them - be nice, and they should complete them promptly. Good luck!

I'm applying today/tomorrow. Most of my apps were completed before today, but I needed the time off during the holiday to go through last minute checks of everything - I read a few too many horror stories about sending the wrong PS to the wrong school. Talk about disaster.

Same here.. waiting for my Dec LSAT score because it will dictate whether or not I even apply this cycle. If it's on the lower end of my PT scores then I will re-take in june and apply next cycle.
