Late Apps: When should I expect to hear back?

Postby redsoxfan2495 » Tue Feb 22, 2011 9:50 pm

I applied to most of the T14 within the first couple days of February. The apps due by February 1st were all sent in on time. Is it pretty safe to say that I won't hear back from any of them until late April? Input from late applicants of past years would be appreciated.

on a separate note, does the deadline refer to date submitted on LSAC? or dated everything has been received by school

I submitted in mid January, and now I'm under review everywhere. In fact, I've already heard back from 4/10, in some cases before people who submitted in October or September. While applying early is better, applying later is not fatal unless you are a borderline candidate.

You could hear back very soon, or much later. The process is almost random.

It refers to the date submitted on LSAC. Exact dates for when everything was sent, received, and completed can be found here: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/redsoxfan2495
