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.

thanks! i know i should wait until i have a real LSAT score since that can differ from practice scores pretty wildly, i'm just a little antsy. i was actually pretty sure that i was going to put off applying for a year and work in my home country first instead, but with all my friends going on to law school, med school, grad school, jobs they wouldn't mind staying in forever, combined with my lurking on LSD has suddenly caused me to want to "get on with my life". That is, as opposed to delaying a year for all the advantages that will undoubtedly bring, i sort of want to try applying, and go. Next September seems far enough away.. 2007 feels like eternity. I guess i posted only those hard-to-get-into schools as interest because if they don't pan out i really am willing to wait a year. i'd prefer not to, but it  is a definite option.

i'm pretty nervous. i do well on the practice tests and something around my practice test average would make me fairly happy. but i'm paranoid about bad testing conditions (taking it at an international test center), something going majorly wrong like a timing fiasco, etc. i also read a post somewhere here at LSD that stated LSAC won't report your scores to the schools if you're international? i don't know if that's true but if it is i have no idea what i'm supposed to do. (Needless to say, i only made the decision to take the LSAT in December very recently, and am still torn about whether i'll end up applying for the '06 year at all. it will depend completely on how well i do on the LSAT.)
