I think they're maybe like Columbia, HLS, etc. where once your file is complete the tracker is useless?

Is there any benefit to applying early or is it more like Yale? The optional essay has been killing me

Based on last year, the earlier you apply, the earlier you find out (only if you're accepted, that is). Sept. applicants heard in the first wave, early Oct. the second, and mid-to-late Oct. the third. Not sure if it disadvantages you not to apply later, though.

Just KH--the real black box is trying to gauge whether being a KH finalist means anything about your SLS chances.

Not a KH applicant, but they released JD decisions last year on the 15th. What makes you certain they couldn't do it again?

Well KH is not specific to SLS, but all graduate programs at S. SLS could very well release decisions, but that's not something that I can glean from the fact that KH is coming out tomorrow. Would it make sense to admit? Absolutely. I just don't have evidence to call it a sure thing.

Am I the only one who submitted the application without the optional essay? I don't know how, but I completely missed it while I was filling out my application. I just found out about the prompts here on TLS..

SLS is my top choice of course. It's just that I haven't been paying much attention since I know my chances are not that great (172/3.96, KJD, no strong softs). Do you think I can still send in the optional essay? Already being a not-too-strong applicant, I don't want them to dismiss my file for not showing sufficient interest... Has anybody gone through this? Should I just give up hope..?

Went complete on 11/01. Yea it's been a while.. fml lol..

Relax, you are just as strong an applicant as anyone else. Your LSAT is above median and your GPA is above the 75th - give yourself some credit.

Also, I did not write an optional essay.

Thanks for the encouragement! Thinking I'm not the only one helps me calm my nerves. I'm now considering sending one via email - hope they don't notice my sloppiness..

Fwiw, Dean Faye has mentioned that she appreciates applicants who are active participants in the process. She made the comment in reference to someone asking if it would be appropriate to send a "Why SLS" essay after not hearing anything for several months after sending in their app. So, they don't seem to mind people sending things in after submission for the purpose of demonstrating interest.

Thanks for the good vibes! I’ve pretty much talked myself into accepting that I won’t get a K-H offer. So if I do get one, it’ll be a really great surprise. And if I don’t, I at least (hopefully) won’t shed too many tears about it.

Let’s hope that the first wave of SLS decisions comes out soon after the K-H notifications!

Do you know if they send out e-mails to everyone or just to the 100 blessed ones?

I recall that the timeline describes today as when you find out whether or not you’re a finalist. Meaning everyone should get an email

Finalist == being selected for the program? Or just being shortlisted?
