App timeline/2nd lsat question

Postby HellOnHeels » Sun Sep 25, 2011 9:55 am

Lets you send in your application with the intentions of retaking the lsat in Dec. If your Oct score was good enough to get you into your safety schools, will they go on and accept you, or will they wait until your Dec score anyways?

I'm wondering the same, because I don't want to loose possible $ on my safety schools as a result.

I'm retaking, but I want to submit some of my applications now. Can I do that?
If I submit apps now with the old score, will schools wait to review my file until the new score shows up?

If you ask them to. However, if you ask them to review it as is, they will probably do that too. You just need to e-mail them, let them know you've submitted an application, and tell them you would like them to wait for the new score before reviewing or to please consider your application complete without the new score and review your file as is.

They usually say they won't even look at your app if they know a second score is coming in later... unless you tell them specifically to consider your application complete without the new score.

I wouldn't do an addendum. They might not read it until they are reviewing your file, or possibly not at all. Just e-mail the Admissions office and let them know. That way you are sure they received the information.
