I have some optional essays that I want to write, but I want to submit before Nov. 1st. I plan to finish the optional essay shortly thereafter (a week maybe). Can I/should I submit my application or wait until I do my optional essays?

Either way, you can just email it to them and have it added to your file. The only school I applied to that turned my file around absurdly quickly was Boalt (and Duke I guess, but they had committed to that beforehand). The optional essays aren't going to change your GPA or LSAT score.

Everything should be bundled together. You have almost two weeks to do them..about 288 hours. That's a long time to knock out lengthy essays, let alone the usual one to two page ones they're actually looking for.
