If you are borderline, would you prefer getting one look at your app or two?  I got two looks with Harvard by applying in September and am happy with the result.  I don't think anyone would suggest holding your apps until a certain period of time just to gain an advantage - it doesn't exist.

Pancho--thanks for responding with good information. I really, really, really, really, really appreciate it. You're great! Best wishes for your law school! ;)

No problem.  Stick around here :)!

If the percent of applicants decreases next year as it did this year (10% drop), then I would think that it would hurt you to apply early unless you are an auto-admit as mentioned above. 

No, it never hurts.  When schools make their second pass through applications, those that applied in September/October are at the top of the stack.

Yeah, Pancho: I know the practice score is sometimes a poor indicator, but I am running with the assumption that I will have that LSAT score (bad assumption I know but nice to think about). But hey, do you know if HYS will look badly upon the whole app as a result? Pancho, my many thanks for responding.

No, it isn't an application killer, but it is worth explaining.

You should hold off until receiving your LSAT score.  Practice tests are sometimes a poor indicator of actual performance.

I'm preparing to take the June LSAT and apply ED for my top choice.

Does anybody know if the anecdotes out there have some truth to them? Does it pay to take the LSAT early and apply early, or is the difference negligible?

I'm just wondering if a possible LSAT improvement is worth the risk of throwing my hat in during the October LSAT fray or if the benefits from applying early outweigh the minor improvement in the score.

You have plenty of time to maximize your possible score for June.  June-October isn't a huge difference in applications though.  I think that December 1st is kind of the cut-off between applying early and otherwise.  But yes, applications before that date seem to have an advantage.  Every admissions consultant would agree that earlier = better as long as you have put the best foot forward in your apps.

Does anyone know when the HLS admitted students weekend is? I have just been admitted but haven't been sent that info yet.

Thanks.

oh pancho, you're too much (slaps knee)

just got back from upenn ...  i'm gonna blitz through six schools in the next several weeks, so I'll save a cumulative review for the end

Wow, six schools?  I am impressed.  I thought my three-schools-in-two-weeks was a little much :D.
