Can I send in my applications while waiting for Dec LSAT?

Postby Charis » Thu Dec 15, 2011 5:24 pm

Hello everyone,

I just had a quick question that I've had a hard time finding an answer to. I am in the middle of processing my applications after having taken the December LSAT, but there is a space for "Standardized Tests" that asks for an LSAT score. Since my score is not in, am I able to send in my application, or must I wait until my scores are in? If I'm able, do I just leave this field blank or put "In Progress" or something similar?

Thank you for any assistance!

I don't mean to be unappreciative but that was not exactly helpful. That topic was referencing already having an LSAT score but waiting for another one, I was asking if it were possible to send in my applications *without* any LSAT score being submitted with them, having only taken the test once (December) and still waiting for them to return. I attempted to search for topics asking similar questions but did not come up with anything, perhaps I am searching wrong. Regardless, I could still use an answer to this question if anyone is willing to help.

If you are comfortable with all your other application materials, we encourage you to submit your application now rather than waiting for the December LSAT score to send everything—and to make sure to let us know the new score is en route. Because we have a rolling admissions process, there is always something of an advantage to being reviewed earlier rather than later, and if you submit all your materials only after receiving your score, your application will not be complete and ready for review until late January or early February.(For that reason, if the December test is your first sitting for the LSAT, we do recommend that you submit all your other materials in advance, so that when the score arrives we can complete your application file immediately and submit it for review, rather than just beginning to process it at that time.)

Other schools may differ so it'd be prudent of you to research the schools' specific policy. Hope that helps.

I guess my "wha?" wasn't very clear.

I understand pwnage but I don't get the context in which you used it. How is there pwnage on this forum? People ask questions and we try to give our best 0L answer to them.
