When to submit applications?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Mar 23, 2015 2:12 am

I am not quite sure when applications for transfer are supposed to be submitted. LSAC opens within the next month, but any application submitted will be incomplete due to Spring semester grades. Do we go ahead and submit the application as soon as they open with the knowledge that it will need to be updated once grades come out in June? Or do we wait to submit when grades are actually out?

Thanks for any feedback.

You don't need to send in regular decision applications until you get final grades.

I'm not sure that submitting your apps early and supplementing it with final grades would be a bad idea - unless your first semester grades weren't that great that is. After all, why would they even have the application available in April if they don't expect you to submit anything until June?

They won't review an application until it is complete. I do not think there is any harm in submitting the electronic application and then sending in your official transcript as soon grades are available.
