I think the standard advice is to apply as broadly as possible dude. Hustle for those waivers to reduce costs, but come scholly negotiation time, you'll be glad you can play Emory off GW off Vandy (or whatever your planned outcome might be).


That was my thinking too. I've got almost everything in the t25, plus a few safeties in former hometowns. It looks like service waivers will save me 700-900 dollars this application cycle, which is great.


didn't you slay the LSAT? doesn't seem necessary unless your GPA is super low. but do you.

also

can i pinch?


My uGPA is indeed super low. Little peench, but only if you can peench some sense into my 18 year old self.

Missed you bro! These last few weeks without a regular bitches/gripes/complaints outlet has been just a little less awesome.

I see you've become a very active participant around these parts too! Look at that post count.

Bruh, I remember hitting 1k posts and after that I don't even really remember the extra 700. Most of my posts are from shit-posting in the waiters thread/study group ;)

Can't imagine there's a downside. Like even if it were something all the schools could know about (which it may very well be, idk), what're they gonna do, ding you for wanting to go to law school too badly?

U Chicago asks you to list all the other schools youre applying to. I guess an adcomm would be like wow at seeing a list of 27 schools. prob wouldnt influence the decision i think?

They did this two cycles ago. Im sure they still do. I remember them being the only ones in the t14 to do this; outside the T14 idk.

From what I remember, Every school I applied to asked what other schools I am applying to in the application.

I didn't apply to any T14s last cycle and was still asked what schools I am applying on all applications.

I'm just guessing, but I think they use this as a data point to see who their peer schools are.

Yeah probably. I mean I don't plan on applying to a large amount of schools like Kopetz but I think it is interesting to think about how adcomms look at someone who applied to a huge amount of schools.

UChi still did this last year. But I don't recall too many other T14s that did this.

What I do remember is Yale asking if I took a prep course for the LSAT or how I prepared and what not. I thought that was strange (Yes, I threw out a Yale Mary, and I know I had no chance).

Most applications are not open for the class of 2020 yet. I believe they open around mid-August / early-mid September.

Generally, when the September scores come out, your application would still be early if you sent it then so it's not a major issue. You can send your apps before it comes out but if your scores end up being drastically different, you might be thrown into the "presumptive deny" pile based on your old score. I would probably just wait unless you think your score increase would only be like a point or even if you think your retake score would go down.

yeah waiting for the Sept score seems like the right move here

I think this may be covered on individual school threads, but if you wanted to put the dates when each T14 application opens? It could be useful to have them all posted here rather than having to open every individual school thread.
