when is the cutoff date to benefit from early application?

Postby uhwrestler » Fri Nov 04, 2016 5:06 pm

hello i was trying as hard as possible to have my apps complete before November but by graduate school made an error and I have to resend my graduate transcript. it might be another 2 weeks and most schools have me on incomplete status although some schools consider me complete.


anyways when does the benefits of applying early end is it mid-November or even earlier? and when is your app considered late

my numbers are borderline at some reach school so applying as early as possible was crucial for me

I'm sure you could find this information on the school's website.

So Mike MS9 (professional admissions consultant, also relatively regular presence on TLS) did a very helpful podcast on his blog about this, and I am paraphrasing from that (and also some adcom interviews, etc) here but:

Pre-Halloween: super super early
Pre-thanksgiving: early
December: on time
Post- December LSAT score release: late

Please note also that some schools don't even start looking at apps until late nov, dec. and that often, the order that apps are looked at does not necessarily correspond to when it was submitted (e.g., some schools will organize apps into piles based on numbers first, and then look at them chronologically within those rough categories).

Any time before Thanksgiving is still considered early.

Truth - before thanksgiving is considered early

For some of the neurotic TLSers- anything after the first week of September is late.

Not sure if this is the right forum for this question but I'm trying to do early admissions and having issues with my undergad transcript has a "Y" on it for a class they say I signed up for after I graduated and never attended. Anyone have an experience with a Y and is it going to affect my admission decision?
