Sorry, just have a follow up question. On LSN, the date for going complete is typically later than date received. Is this just because the applicants didn't send in everything all together? (i.e. submitting LSAT after taking it at a later date). If I were to submit everything, then shouldn't the received date/time be the same as the completion time?

Sweet. Thanks for all the replies. I hope LSDAS doesn't screw me over. Have any of you guys faxed in recs? I hear it's faster (both avoiding airmail and also cutting down on LSDAS processing time), but I'm not sure about the quality.

Thanks! Just to be clear, LSAC sending my LSAC info to the school doesn't take any time right?

Law School Admissions / LSDAS Processing Time
« on: August 18, 2009, 03:48:04 PM »
Hey everyone. I had a couple questions regarding LSDAS processing times. I want to have my applications submitted to my schools on October 31st. If I were to have my recs in to LSDAS by mid-October would that be enough time?

Also, LSDAS says it takes 2 weeks to process recs and transcripts. Once I apply, is everything transmitted to the law school instantly? Any help with the timeframe would be greatly appreciated.


Hey, thanks all for the advice. I'm confident that this TA would take the time to craft a well-written letter of recommendation. My case is sort of interesting in that it's not as if the TA is going to write me a beautiful rec and the professor would write me a horrible rec, rather both the TA and prof. would write good things about me, but the TA would reference specific instances he interacted with me.

I know this topic has been touched upon before, but I wanted some insight to my particular situation. I'm a current undergrad at a pretty large University. I haven't had much one on one exposure with professors due to large class size. Therefore, I asked a history TA of mine who I met for ofice hours and had recitation each week for my course to write a rec for me. He happily agreed. I was wondering whether having a TA write a rec would be a terrible idea considering I'm shooting for T-14. His rec will not be "OMG he was the best student I ever had." But he will be able to hopefully reference my work and what I did in his recitation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I took a Testmasters course, which was quite helpful. The main thing with a prep course is that it gives you definite scheduling forcing you to sit down and do the work. If you're very proactive and dedicated then you can definitely accomplish what I did through self-study (buying all the practice tests)

Hey UPenn, first of all starting law school and not 21 yet? Impressive. Anywho, I'm an undergrad at Penn and there's a great microbrewery on 50th and Baltimore that doesn't card called Dock Street. Another bar-esque place is around 43rd and Spruce called Local 44 which is pretty lax

Thanks! Yeah, I'm hammering away at my PS. After writing my first rough draft, it doesn't seem nearly unique enough, but then again my experiences thus far have been pretty ordinary. Waiting for the apps to come out before writing Why Penn or other supplemental essays. Good luck.

I was wondering when apps will come out on LSDAS for the upcoming cycle. Thanks!
