I submitted on 10/16, I just got the following email regarding how they review applications. Thought I'd post since many of you may be curious about when to submit if you're missing components (such as LORs, LSAT scores, etc).
We have received notification from LSAC that you have submitted an application to Yale Law School. In order to make application processing as efficient as possible, we have asked LSAC to hold applications that do not meet certain criteria for completeness.
- If your LSDAS report is complete (meaning it contains an LSAT score, transcripts from the undergraduate schools which you attended, and at least two letters of recommendation), we should receive your application and LSDAS report from LSAC in a week and we will begin processing your application at that time.
- If your LSDAS report is missing only two letters of recommendation, we will receive your application once two letters are on file with LSAC or after December 1, whichever comes sooner. We will begin processing your application as soon as we receive it from LSAC.
- If your LSDAS report is missing either an LSAT score or undergraduate transcript, we will receive your application once both of these items are on file with LSAC or after January 1, whichever comes sooner. We will begin processing your application as soon as we receive it from LSAC.
We will contact you by email when your application is complete and ready for review. In the meantime, you can learn more about the Law School and the admissions process by visiting our Admissions Blog at http://www.law.yale.edu/203blog

We thank you for your application and appreciate your interest in Yale Law School
