I wish people would stop citing that as an authority. How do you think schools have gotten away from having these policies for years? Because LSAC does not enforce it. Do you think a school is really going to be convinced to let your deadline slide because LSAC told them they can't do it?
LSAC has no power over law schools? they are just the administration that creates the LSAT, administers it, and organizes the law school applications for applicants and law schools.
and yes - you can submit your deposit at a school while still in review at other schools. but you are supposed to withdraw from schools that you have been given a decision. read the agreement you are signing beforehand though. it will state something along the lines of... "I have no commitment to attend another law school, have not deferred enrollment at another law school, will not apply to another law school, and have withdrawn from other law schools to which I was admitted." Nothing in there about withdrawing from schools in which you were not admitted, which includes schools you have not had a decision.
Direct quote from U of C's regular decision commitment response form: "When you reserve a seat in the Class of 2014, we request that you withdraw any deposits or commitments to attend any other law school and withdraw any outstanding applications for which you have not received a decision. "
It's a request...but not like it's BINDING you?[/quote]
True, not sure about that.
