Do I have a little chance for HLS with the february lsat score?

It much harder to get into HLS with the February score even if I have the median GPA and LSAT? Anyone with experience? Thanks so much!

This is from their FAQs on their website:

"You must also take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) before the February 1 application deadline (no later than the December LSAT administration) in order for your application to be guaranteed consideration."

So I wouldn't plan on them accepting your Feb score. Perhaps to get you off the waitlist, but that assumes your score is good enough to get you on the waitlist. (And assuming you've already taken the LSAT)

Do you plan on submitting your application now with median GPA and LSAT, as you say in your OP? Presuming you aren't rejected by February, you can definitely have your file updated with the Feb score. You should listen to Mike MS9's recent podcast with Danielle Early on the admissions cycle where he talks about someone applying wayyyyy after the deadline and still being admitted because his LSAT score was that good.

Also, FWIW, if you read the instructions carefully on the Flex-App, it seems like that the application deadline is a bit...fluid.

Hope this helps. Best of luck!
