I am still a bit disappointed with the SAT folks. From what I understand a few years after I took the test they re-centered the scoring so that the median score was at (or at least closer to) 1000. So my not that impressive 12xx score (I think it was a 1230, but it has bee a quarter century so I would not bet a lot of money on my memory at this point) did not look as good. Then flash forward they added another section and and another 800 points to the top score, so it makes my score sound like I might have a habit of sitting in a room and drooling on myself.

I'm just poking my nose in here a few times a day -- I know if we suddenly add 5 pages of posts it probably means scores. :-P

If a school's deadline is March 1st does that mean by 11:59pm on the 1st or 11:59 on the last day of February? In other words -- can we still apply during the day ON deadline day?

I suspect that the answer is that you van apply on the deadline day.

It looks like I will be flirting with this myself. If I can get my app in one the 28th, I will, but I am not sure it will happen.

Some schools do not allow for submissions without the required number of recs, but I just cleared this hurdle a few days ago.

Right now I am re-writing my personal statement, due to some harsh (but deserved) criticism it received, also I am holding out for verification of some minor traffic violations that took place in the '80s (when many of my peers were in diapers) to avoid running afoul of the required C&F statement.

I dont think LSAC sends out the recs without the scores.

I have 15 reports (test score, recs and transcripts) waiting for a test score.

Oh...and 6 days

Double-checking PS, polishing resume, putting together the best app I can.

Yeah, it's late, I know.

Also holding out to see if scores come early so I can avoid applying to schools over/under my range.

This morning I managed to convince myself scores HAVE to come out by Friday so that applicants with March 1 deadlines will know what they're applying with.

But then I remembered that was probably a little too practical.

LOL I know what you mean! On the handful of apps that asked for SAT scores I made sure to add "taken in 1998 on a scale of 1600" so they wouldn't think I was a moron.

Your lsac page has a "next deadline" link on the home page that shows you the date and time you have to submit (lower right hand in the side panel). For instance, I have Yale on my school list (because I wanted to see what their app looked like, not because I'm applying) and they are listed as 2/28 at 11:59pm so I assume it ends at midnight the night BEFORE the deadline for most schools.

Pretty sure they will send the application without scores but not without recs. you can add ADDITIONAL recs if the school allows more, but you need the minimum to generate a report. Hope that helps.
