Applying in October- Does this hurt me?

Postby jrsbaseball5 » Thu May 02, 2013 3:37 pm

Hey all-

I am currently studying for my LSAT, but have done not nearly as much as I need to/want to, since I've done most of the PS LG Bible. That being said I am considering taking the October LSAT to give me the entire summer to study to do the best I can. My question is, is applying in October going to hurt my chances of getting into HYS or other T14 schools? I am mostly concerned with T6 chances applying at that point. I would plan on having everything else ready to submit once the score is received.

I am a MA URM with a 4.00 GPA

Absolutely not.

Enjoy HYS with that GPA and a passable LSAT.

Don't admit to a murder or any other felony in your PS; enjoy Harvard law.

Thanks to both of you for the reply. I guess I'm just worried that with rolling admissions usually starting September 1st that I will be missing out on some of the available seats and potentially $$

LOL no. Even applying in December/January wouldn't hurt you.

As long as it's before mid-January, I think this is true.
