am I SOL applying this late?

Postby calidancer2 » Wed Nov 07, 2012 8:04 pm

Hi there, 3.7/174. Am I SOL for applying this late and should wait til next cycle? or should I just push hard and try to get everything in by Thanksgiving? Thought I would give this new job a chance and hold off on law school...I hate it, think law school is right for me, and want to apply again now. used to frequent the boards and am now just getting back in. feels so right to be back! :lol:

It seems to be commonly accepted that submitting before Thanksgiving is considered on time.

I would. Probably out at YS, small shot at H.

Look good at CCN.

Probably big $$$ in low T14 for that LSAT.

Aren't S mediums lower than H?

I understand it is more selective, but if you are telling someone to apply just based on GPA/LSAT, I'd say S deserves a shot if H does.

thanks guys! have some bizarre WE i think that might make me stand out to them, so that may help. 2 years out of UG right now. looking to practice in CA (raised there, would like to get back, not sure where in t-14 will put me back there besides obvious B/S)

Medians?

I was basing it off mylsn. 7 applied to S with his numbers and 7 got denied. 9 applied to H with his numbers, 1 admit, 4 deny, and 4 WL.

And I was just speaking to the probabilities of getting in. As I said, I probably would blanket T14.
