Hard Deadlines

Postby moonshine15 » Tue Mar 03, 2015 4:14 pm

I put in all of my applications a few months ago, but was thinking of throwing 2 or 3 more in. Was curious how hard the deadlines are for the final round (Feb 1/March 1 etc), as some schools like Berkeley have taken down their application from LSAC but others such as Duke and Cornell are still accessible and still able to pay the application fee even though the stated deadline has passed.

Could anyone shed some light on this? I would assume the deadlines are pretty cut and dry but the applications still being up gave me pause.

Best,

Just call the school(s) admissions office. Mention that the apps are still on LSAC and ask if they will still be accepted. My hunch is that if they're still live on LSAC the admissions folks will probably take a look at any that come rolling in after the deadline, but maybe not.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I would also think that they would look at applications submitted after the deadline, if for nothing else than to avoid a sticky situation of allowing people to continue submitting/paying for applications that won't ever be considered.

+1 to calling the admissions offices.
