Applying with February LSAT

Postby loomstate » Fri Oct 18, 2013 10:18 am

Going against TLS conventional wisdom. Want HYS and family will fund Law school anyway. Should I submit my applications before I have my LSAT score? Will this help my chances?

Considering that the application deadlines for HS are before the February LSAT, you're going to need to.

Though I'm not actually sure if LSAC will even let you submit an app without an LSAT score on file, so that might all be moot. Why not take December and see how you do?

Looks like most schools accept applications submitted before taking the Februrary LSAT. Will need permission from Stanford and Harvard says they dont normally accept it - with applications down, are we in normal circumstances? I dont think so! :lol:

Wait a year, apply at the beginning of next cycle.

HYS are not getting hit nearly as hard as the other schools by the downturn, so I'd get in touch with them ASAP to make sure you're not getting your hopes up for nothing.

Though I'd echo others in saying that you should wait another year to apply.
