100%. Letters FINALLY#$%#@$%@#% were received by LSAC.
This makes me question my logic in my LOR choices.

:(
Deciding to wait a couple weeks to finish everything to give myself a break after the turned into a month on my end as well....

..

So, I'm going to sip on my Xyience: Orange Fuel here at my desk and pray the 16% drop in applications applies, in any significant way, to the schools I applied to....


Yep.

You will be fine. Your situation may be less optimal than is ideal, but you are alright so long as you applied to a range of schools.

Is there anyway that you could wait until next year to apply?

Bah. :)

I'm fine. Just bought a new set of golf clubs as a gift for myself. Not that i'll be able to play too much over the next 3 1/2 years, but this will keep me busy for a few months while I'm waiting/planning.

Why do people always talk like this. No. For the next 3.5 years, you will have more time for golf than in the following 40. If this sounds bad, back slowly away from law.

Yea, I played plenty of volleyball while in law school. It's all about balance - the people who studied 20 hours a day did much worse than the people I know who put the time in and then took a day off. Stress is a killer.

My friends who are lawyers, however....

But 2Ls and 3Ls aren't still doing the 20 hours a day thing, even if they were during 1L. Like, at all.

December LSAT takers only went complete 2-3 weeks ago. Is it really that much bigger of a disadvantage if someone is applying right now?

Also very true.
