hip hip hooray! i'm gonna start studying for it in a couple weeks. let the mind rest, work on personal statement, etc etc. my only worry is that my apps will be sent in late. but i've heard mixed commentary regarding whether december is considered "late" or not. hopefully not.

Pretty sure Jan is considered late. Isn't Feb like the latest?

yeah, same here. the only thing needed to go complete will be that december score. i dont think it's late either. i've heard most schools get a majority of their applications close to the deadline. as long as you send them out asap after the scores are released then it should be ok.

Well some deadlines on LSAC say March, so I'd consider January to be *really* freaking late, yea.

There is a very interesting set of graphs hanging around here on TLS (I always forget to book mark it...) that show the top X schools' acceptance patterns vs. time and the majority of acceptances definitely come in well before Jan (But that could be a TLS selection sample bias I guess).

yeah. the earlier you apply, the sooner you hear back. and most people on here apply really early. so it makes sense.

Thanks a ton.

Hmmm...

Seems most acceptances are after October..and between december..There's a big influx of acceptances right at the beginning of January - is that in time to get December LSATs in?
