Currently two points below the LSAT median. Debating whether I should submit this now and run the risk of getting WL/rejected by Christmas, or not submitting until the day of the December LSAT (assuming I retake).

Worst thing you could do is show them from the start that you didn't follow directions.

I thought about it because I struggled to find where to cut down from my 3 page PS for other schools. But after I finished cutting, I regretted submitting a 3-page PS at all. Just edit it down to avoid making a bad first impression.

Funny, because this is what they specify:
Please limit your statement to two pages using a minimum of 11-point font, 1-inch margins, and double spacing.


This means legal-size or A-3 size is a-ok.

Harvard Admissions, let the record state that your prompt only referenced a two page limit, not the size of the paper. My ten foot parchment scroll is clearly one unbroken page, and thus, you must review it in its entirety without any penalty to me or my application.

Checking in.

On average, how many days did it take to go from "received" to "completed"? :)
