February/March Late Applicant Success Stories

Postby jthach » Fri Nov 28, 2014 5:52 pm

Hey all. Wondering if there are any success stories of late applicants who applied after taking the February LSAT. I really don't see any of them (which may be not so surprising) but looking for some evidence that it is possible to apply that late, and still get into any of the T14!

It looks like people have historically gotten in with March applications.

The last 3 cycles.

A few years ago, Paul Campos or someone reported that Chicago was taking applicants into the summer. They also pull a LOT of people off the waitlist, so I wouldn't be surprised if you could get in with a late application and awesome numbers.

One thing to think about with late applications is money. If you have the numbers and get in, you may get in with less money since the school has likely already allocated a lot of it by then, so it may be in your best interest to wait until the next cycle.

The mother of dragons is mostly correct. You may either get WL or accepted with a less-than-ideal package, at best.

the LSN links are interesting, but there's a difference btwn being accepted after submitting in March and being accepted after LSAT in Feb. NYU seems to have accepted many in March, but website says Dec is latest LSAT they look at during same cycle.
