I don't think you can do the app until you have an LSAT score.

I believe this is the case. You can apply as long as you have a LSAT score, so if you are retaking you can list a future LSAT, but I think you need at least one score on file to submit.

Now that Apps are open, let me know if anyone has a Poll idea, and I'll go ahead and update the OP.

call the school or LSAC, they're usually quick.

so I have an LSAT score that's between the 25th and median (retaking in September). should I wait until after my September score to submit the app? or is there a way to apply and ask them to not make a decision until they have at least considered my September score? thanks!

Hmm, that's weird. I just tried to enter in a new date and was able to for September and December 2016. Maybe its something else on that page.

Personal choice. You can always call or send an email or list in the app that you're taking a future one. They might consider it and wait on a decision. They might not. Applying after September isn't late though - I'd hold off.

Anyone applying for the Doctoroff Leadership Program? Looks like it would be interesting.

Checking in.

I haven't done anything yet since I'm at work, but my first application is officially opened.

The cycle has started... :? :? :?

Doctoroff is great if you know you want to be doing something in business - they have a lot of networking events and other stuff geared to getting your foot in the door. I'm not in it but I know the people who are in it generally enjoyed it and their summers looked kickass. If you're sold on business/transactional, I'd try for it.

If you have the time and a genuine interest it's worth a shot. If you're too busy then don't sweat it; plenty of people can do transactional stuff after/during law school without Doctoroff.

Would you attach a "why Chicago" essay as an optional addendum?

no point for any T6 schools, they know they're awesome. MAYBE if you have some super special reason.

Yeah, you have to attach a suped up why x for doctor off, otherwise I wouldn't do it unless you have a really good reason.
