I did because I saw no harm at the time. And getting a decision by December? Awesome!
But with this "deferral fear" that is hitting everyone, maybe applying EA isn't anything special.
I really don't know if you should have accepted it. Since you're retaking the LSAT, if you're assuming you'll raise your score, having them look at you later could help you. Accepting EA could have meant you get a decision quicker (potentially a rejection?) or a defferment (in which case you would be re-looked at with your new LSAT score). Personally
, I think you made the right decision in wanting to be held over until after the Dec exam.
I think this is an extremely good sign for you. The fact that others who have been complete long before you have been deferred with similar numbers, but yet they're holding your application. And from what people have been saying, the accept decisions will start the first week of december. although the fact they sent out deferrals first this cycle could mean that anything is next and not just accept letters.
I certainly like your optimism. I know of another TLSer (tintin) with my numbers and almost the same complete date, and neither of us have heard.
Edit: Oh, hey tintin. I was just talking about you...
