How much of a disadvantage if applying early January?

Postby mikeylikesit » Mon Oct 24, 2011 6:11 pm

I know that applying early is best, but I'm just wondering if anyone knows just how much of a disadvantage it is to wait and apply with a December LSAT score. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

That link doesn't show much different between the October score submissions and the Dec ones.

If you read closely, you'll see that all of the apps were on hold from December until March. So it was effectively a March submission. You could argue it was more like a January one since they were on the top of the pile as soon as the score came out in early March. Or you could say that's pretty off, which is what I would think. In any case, it's a good data point about the dangers of late apps in general.

Yeah, his listed LSAT was what he got from the February LSAT, so he had to wait till March to even have them review it.

But the OP asked about applying with a December LSAT...
