How much will applying late hurt me?

Postby MH2013 » Wed Jan 13, 2010 11:33 am

Good morning!
I’m a long time lurker, first time poster, hope I’m doing this right.
So I have been checking law school numbers, law school predictor, etc and reading TLS like crazy to try to get an idea of my chances, but I know I’m applying late (sent out my apps yesterday) and would love/really appreciate any opinions on the outcome of my cycle (especially at Penn, Michigan, Duke, and UVA) or where/if I could get money considering my relatively late apps.

Here are my stats:
171 LSAT
3.73 from top public university
Still in undergrad
Decent softs but nothing super unique

And here are my schools:
Columbia
NYU

Penn
Michigan
Duke (PT)
UVA

Georgetown
UCLA
Vanderbilt
Emory
Minnesota

GW
Washington and Lee
Wake Forest

Seriously, thanks so much!

UVA still has a binding early decision option. You could do this if you don't mind getting locked in there.

EDIT: After checking LSP I wouldn't do that. You are a strong candidate at a lot of these schools, they aren't stupid enough to not admit you because you are a little late. I've heard the competition gets a little stiffer, especially for borderline candidates.

Thanks so much! I think I’m competitive at Penn, Michigan, Duke, and UVA but by no means definitely in, so it’s really reassuring to hear that while I didn’t help myself by applying late I didn’t completely screw myself either (I’ve been freaking myself out that I did). And thanks for mentioning UVA ED, I knew that they extended the deadline, but I didn’t even think about taking advantage of it. I’m definitely going to keep that in mind though, especially depending on how things go with Duke.
