Schools with late admission deadlines

Postby john1990 » Mon Aug 05, 2013 5:04 pm

I know that Cardozo's deadline is not until the 15th. Are there any other schools still accepting applications?

If you mean still accepting applications for matriculation this fall, then none that are worth attending.

schools with the later deadlines are usually really bad schools that shamelessly want your money.

Trolling?

If not, please re-evaluate your life choices. Seriously, not trying to be an internet asshole. There is LITERALLY no reason in the world to apply now just because you want to go this year.

Not so fast. Short on qualified URM's in August of 2008, Wake Forest proactively targeted me for late admission. I had never even considered applying there, and I wasn't really interested, but it was flattering that they came after me.

Hence there are instances where, if someone stands out enough they might leapfrog waitlisted applicants and steal a spot. If an outstanding applicant has a good reason - such as long-term illness, family tragedy or a very important work, education or community service project (like disaster relief, etc.), he/she might persuade a top school to accept a very late application.

Schools want to put together the best classes they can, and I don't doubt that, every summer, someone leaps over the pack at every school.

Also remember that applications are down; if there's any time in which extremely late applications might make the cut, it's now.

Assuming you're not goofing around, why?

Edit: Especially since your post history indicates you're already in at multiple schools.

Unless you're doing part-time, this is a great way to kill your gpa during 1L.

Might want to check out the American Bar Association's Standards and Rules of Procedure for Approval of Law Schools, Standard 303(f).
