Why is it beneficial to apply later in a counter cycle?


iirc it's that applications within certain LSAT bands end up being way down as time goes on, so applicants within those strata who may have been rejected or WLed had they applied earlier would be more seriously considered if they applied later


That makes sense! Thank you :)

Sure thing. MS9 talks about it some in this podcast if you want more detail.

Would y'all think that mostly impacts 170+ scorers?

I can't listen to the podcast but it wouldn't hurt you if you applied early and haven't been WL/rejected anywhere yet?

I'm unsure, I don't recall them addressing that on the podcast. I'd guess that if you weren't definitively sorted yet that you'd reap the same benefit.

I mean, if you have the kind of money where losing 100 doesn't matter and it would make you happy I say go for it.

So confused. So many waitlists.

It's like, if something was really bad on my app wouldn't at least one reject instead of WL?

I'm in this same spot. Only a few acceptances from lower schools, but no WL/dings yet. Hoping I'm in some magical hold pile that they'll go through and accept when they realize they need more high scores.

Well I'm planning on taking out 5-6 figures of loans in the near future. I don't know if that means $100 is less valuable in the grand scheme or more valuable than ever. :cry:

This might come off as immature of me, but I'm legit stressed about making sure I have all the finaid forms and applications filled out for various schools. I didn't apply for financial aid for UG (I've never filled out FAFSA), so this is my first rodeo. My parents are also being sketchy about giving me any of their info because they know I absolutely will not qualify for any need-based aid if I disclose anything. However, some schools require it anyway (I think) and some don't and some require separate apps and some only need FAFSA and some just give you a scholarship without any other forms or apps and I'm overwhelmed :shock: Oh, and I'm married too so I have to wrangle up my husband's info as well -__-

I would love to see a thread dedicated to crowd-sourcing the requirements for each school, like we have for admissions. I similarly am kind of lost so I'm not sure I should OP it. Some seem to want CSS, some want FAFSA, some want interviews, some just send out scholarships for merit, some want to do need based before merit. I'd love someone intelligent to help us navigate it all.

Fafsa stresses the fuck out of me during UG, so I've pretty much been in denial and not looked at it for law school. "Pls help"
