To Wait or Not To Wait

Postby ar1656 » Wed Dec 26, 2012 10:13 pm

Is it better to apply with regular admission and a higher GPA or early with a lower GPA to a top tier school? I have a 3.3 but at the end of the coming semester I will likely have a 3.45. I'm not sure if I should wait or not. I want the best chance at admission that I can have.

Wait, what? Have you taken the LSAT?

Its already kind of late for this cycle, so youll want to apply ASAP.

Applying after your spring semester is ridiculously late, and probably past most deadlines.

I'm a junior. I took the LSAT in December. I want to apply in August but I'm afraid that if I wait to update my grades, I will be rejected before I even get a chance to update.
