Do your chances drop if you apply after December?

Postby roranoa » Sun Dec 07, 2014 11:50 pm

I might have to apply at January due to my LSAT scores.

Would my chances drop significantly for apply late in the game?

Do all t14 schools make decisions on a rolling basis?

Why not just apply now and let them know you took the December LSAT and that will be coming in a few weeks?

But won't they still defer my application?

There's really no point in applying without an LSAT score since they won't look at your app without it. Plus, you can solidify your application strategy when you have a score and save money on app fees.

Apps are way down across the board. Down 15% from last year amongst people who scored 165+, so whereas a January application would have been on the later side a few years ago, it is completely acceptable to apply with a December score in the current climate. You won't face any significant disadvantage. Just get all your apps ready so you can click send as soon as you get your LSAT score.
Good luck!
