There's no need to be rude. My point is that i'm asking just how important soft factors are going to be at top schools. My resume is going to be pretty unimpressive, and i'm not going to have a tear-jerker for an essay. I've read so much about how applying late is a huge disadvantage that i'm trying to get a feel for whether it's even worth it to try to rush into applying as opposed to waiting a year. The questions about LSAT aroudn 175-180 is because, while it's obvious that those are incredible scores, i haven't gotten them yet, and i feel that i need that kind of score to be competitive at top schools with my other factors. in short, is that kind of score going to be enough to offset soft factors and late applications, or even with that kind of score should i set my mind to waiting a year since i won't get to apply until very late, which according to many threads is just a complete stupid no-no. i really do appreciate Soft Blues' reply to my post, because it did answer a lot of my questions and at least reassure me that applying this year isn't completely stupid.
