Applying early?

Postby elcamino » Wed Sep 15, 2010 5:21 pm

Until when is it considered applying "early" in the admissions process? If I take the October 1st LSAT, get application material prepared before and submit my app as soon as my scores are released, would this be considered applying early?

I've heard consistently that before Thanksgiving is considered "early".

You better double check your LSAT admission ticket chief.

Depends on the school (ED). Some ED deadlines are December 1st so you could make it, others are Nov 1st and you'd be pushing it.

The October LSAT score will be e-mailed by November 1, and probably the Friday before that (October 29). ED deadlines are November 15 for Columbia/NYU and December 1 for Chicago, so you'll still be able to choose one.

So is everyone in agreement that "before Thanksgiving" is considered applying early? I too was wondering about this.
