Doesn't the LSAC application automatically make everything all caps? If not I'd just put things in normally... not that I really think it'll matter. But on that note:

PSA: If you're neurotic and applying to Stanford don't change your email from all caps to lower case because last year Stanford showed a pattern of changing emails to lower case the day before they admitted you.

Lol, just out of curiosity, why would you want to fill it out in all caps? Like... what's the upside?

I can only speak for my school, but please please please do not fill out your application in all caps. What you enters auto-flows into the database just as you type it, which is then used for all our mail merges. Since letters and envelopes addressed in all caps looks weird, someone from the office has to manually fix them one by one.
