I still want to get my applications out early and so it looks like I'll be applying before my LSAT score even comes in. How does that process work because someone advised me to do so? Does LSAC send my LSAT score later? What if they've already evaluated me?
I want to answer you...just didn't see your earlier post.
You can submit your apps before your LSAT score comes in.
If you have a previous LSAT score on record, *be sure to tell schools not to look at the applications until the new score comes in.*
The risk in this case is that the school might mistakenly look at the application with the prior LSAT score and rejected you without waiting to consider the newer score (even though you've told them - they're busy and stuff can get lost or forgotten). Once rejected in a cycle, that's it for the cycle.
If you have no previous score on record, your file wouldn't be complete until the LSAT score comes since they need to know your LSAT score before they evaluate your application. In this case, it woudn't be as big a concern.
All right, thanks a lot. How would I go about telling them not to evaluate me until the second score comes in?
