Last-Minute App Success Stories

Post by thounder2666 » Tue Apr 04, 2017 6:44 am

Submitted a few more last minute applications before April 1st to try my luck and maybe broaden my options. Aside from minimal scholarship money at this point, anyone have success stories of acceptance for applying right at the deadline?

I applied to a couplafew t-20s a few years back around April 1 and they offered me a full rides or close to it (retook, didn't go). I was right above their LSAT medians or at their 75ths. If they are desperate for your numbers, they might pay.

That gives me a little hope! How long did you have to wait for decisions? Someone told me it won't be months because of how late in the process it is.

The fastest turnaround was less than 2 weeks after going complete. The slowest was a quick waitlist that threw some money at me a month or two later.
