You're already late, I don't think a couple more weeks is going to do much harm at this point.

Yeah apply next cycle. Save some money and enjoy your youth like I did my gap year.

Probably won't matter too much at this point... Chicago seems to care the most, so if you're applying there might want to submit now.

not enough info to know. if you're over both 75ths then there's no reason not to submit in a few weeks, especially for H. if not then wait until next cycle.

How does one arrive at these statistics? For example, for Chicago do we say that the admit:deny ratio was 79% greater for those who applied in October than for those who applied in December?

What about for Harvard?
Does it matter if you apply in December?
Also do you have to wait until your LSAT score comes out to apply?

Great thread topic. What about for someone who is applying to schools in the 30-70 range? How would applying this late in the game affect them? I plan on submitting all applications between the 12-15th. REALLY kicking myself for not getting everything together sooner. Also does it give you a less favorable chance at scholarships?

it will not affect your chances of admission, and it will have a minimal impact on your scholarship chances, if any at all.
