How long for LSAC to process transcripts and LORs?

Postby prospectivelawyer » Tue Jan 10, 2017 2:58 pm

Some of my applications are due February 1, but my CAS file isn't complete yet. My transcript is supposed to reach LSAC tomorrow (I had my undergrad university do overnight delivery) and one of my recommenders says she cannot submit my letter until late next week. How long does it usually take LSAC to process transcripts? LORs? Do you think my CAS report will be ready before February 1st?

Transcripts: 1-5 days
LORs: instantly after uploading

This might not be true for every school, but the deadline typically refers to the date by which you need to submit your application through LSAC and pay the fees and stuff. If the CAS file gets to the law school later than that, its usually okay. But I don't think you'll need to worry about it. If your recommender gets the letter in the mail by next Friday, it should get to LSAC and be processed within a week. My transcripts only took about 3 days.

Thank you guys! My top choice school has a Feb.1 deadline, so I'm anxious to make sure everything goes smoothly.
