Is applying now a waste of time? Got my LSAT back in September, but didn't apply until much farther along the cycle due to personal circumstances (but nothing noteworthy that it can be included in an addendum).


Both schools are need based aid only, yes? So there's nothing negative about applying now. However, I'd check the last eligibility dates to apply for need based aid, since missing that deadline could still leave you paying sticker.

No, not to late. Disregard comment on need-based aid. Almost all schools make provisions for students admitted after the deadline has passed (e.g., give you 2-3 weeks after admitted to complete the aid app.)

I'd apply everywhere you want to go. Your stats are really never late.

I have some specific professors whom I'd love to study under.


No. Harvard and Stanford know why you want to work there. It's not advantageous. Why essays are good for convincing schools that you will really attend if you have too high of numbers for them, which is important for MVP. Your numbers are quite good, but they're not too high for HS. But you should also apply YLS. Tons of people apply this late every year and get in. If your softs are as good as you say they are, you've got as good a shot as just about anyone.

Thanks! I understand that my numbers are not too high for H/S. Wish they were though :D If I have to draw a comparison, the Why-X essays I was thinking of are more like LOCIs--minus the wait-list status, for now. Since my apps are rather late, I feel like I have to do something else to make up for it.

I'm hoping to apply to YLS too. It's just that H/S have rolling admissions, and YLS says it doesn't.
