When to submit?

Postby lawkid12345 » Thu Dec 05, 2013 8:22 pm

I have all of my apps ready to go, but I am planning on taking the lsat for a second time this saturday.

Is it in my best interest to submit my apps now and indicate that I am sitting for another exam or should I wait until I get the second score to submit? Thanks.

Are you planning on applying regardless of your score this time? If so, then I see no reason why you shouldn't submit now. Maybe someone else who has actually gone through the process will have more helpful information for you than me.

I also have this issue. Whats the consensus here? Are there any previous threads that talk about this? I can't seem to find any.

Apply now. The schools that will take you with your current numbers will accept you. The schools that are reaches will wait for your new score. Either way, there's no negative. Even if a school does not traditionally hold applications for future LSAT scores, they will not be so liberal with rejections this early in the cycle.

apply now. the schools will wait for your lsat score, but in the meantime, they will send you your status checkers, etc. it makes the wait much easier.

I did the same with my LORs, and by the time they all went through, I'd already gotten all my status checkers. it was nice.

what about an addendum? should I wait to get my score or is there a type of addendum I can add before it comes? I am 100% positive i did better than last time. Not even being cocky lol, last time was just really bad.

You shouldn't need an addenda unless you jump like, ten points, and the average I think is two or three.

If you do jump a ton, they'll understand if you submit the addenda later, I mean, it's not like youd know your lsat score to write it earlier.
