Applying now v.s. later

Postby JoeC12 » Sun Nov 20, 2011 8:44 pm

I am taking the February LSAT and plan on submitting my completed application upon receiving those results. I hope to gain admission for fall semester 2012. Is it to my advantage to apply to these schools now or wait till my application is completed in February. Thanks in advance!

Do you already have an LSAT? How much better do you hope to score in February?

From what I understand, yes, schools do accept the February application. I do have a registered LSAT score (June 2010). However, I anticipate my score being approximately 10 points higher in Februrary than what it was in June.

I have talked to my target schools and they do accept the Feb LSAT. They have also told me that they reserve money and seats for the February applicants. Whether or not that is a load of bull remains to be seen. However, I would really like to attend school in the Fall.
