How will I be affected by applying so late?

I should probably be a bit more specific: I have worked at t-mobile selling phones since the end of my freshman year till present time. about 30/hrs a week and got a letter from my manager stressing how i clown at work and school at the same time

I also was in a fraternity for 4 years and held some positions

I think NYU or Berkeley is where I really want to go but I also applied to UCLA, USC, HYS, Col/corn, duke, michigan, chicago, penn, and Georgetown


Also: I did poorly my fall quarter of my senior year, but my transcript is already at LSAC...will i be negatively affected by this? I got a couple of C+s


Dude.... :|

Seriously?
Why would you go and fuck yourself over like that??? You just barred yourself out of T6 and Berkley and probably the rest of the T14 due to late apps.

I thought they wouldnt see my final transcript until after they accept me?

Are my chances truly marred due to my late apps?

Also, should I attach something explaining why myapp is late?

Dude, are you of out of your mind?? it's TOO late to apply right now! if you apply right now, all the t-14's are out, and ucla and usc are also in jeopardy. also C+'s... why would you fuck up yourself like this. people would kill to get your GPA.

I really have no constructive criticism besides for just finishing professional school (medical) myself and when talking to everyone, you realize how much it IS NOT A NUMBERS game. Don't get me wrong, numbers get you in the game, but let's take you for example and had a kid that was president of his fraternity, was involved in community service, was in student government, and was a sponsored surfer and he had a 3.6 and a 165. They are looking at you two completely equally with a possible advantage to the other guy. He managed to get those grades while doing all of those extra activities and obviously works well with people. From what I learned in medical school is their goal is to take kids who they think won't flunk out, period. If you can pass, you can play. A kid like that might be able to handle the stressors of graduate school better than a person who hasn't gotten to truly know what the grind is.
