It certainly could be.  Cornell sent me an unsolicited fee-and-deadline waiver near the beginning of February.  The worst they can say is, "No, but thanks for the $75."

It took me from late Dec to mid Feb to go complete and then they say 8-12 weeks FWIW.

^ditto, except it was November to late February for me. FWIW, it can't hurt (except losing the app fee), but they do seem like the most overloaded and behind school.

Then again, maybe that means they won't even notice you applied late.

So Cornell's deadline was Feb 1st, but now I'm kind of regretting not applying there. I'm above their 75% on GPA and LSAT, so what are my chances if I apply now? Is it even worth it?

How are you going to apply if the deadline has passed?

If you got in, would you go?

If so, ... yeah, apply.

I got the same fee/deadline waiver. When I talked to the adcomm about my application they pretty clearly told me that it'd be okay, as long as I get everything to them by the Feb 1 deadline. Once I mentioned the letter to them, they told me not to worry about it, but it did seem as though they do actually put up the deadline for a reason. That said, what does it hurt to apply, it's a great school with extremely friendly personnel.

You have any other decent options? BC if you do, I think you're throwing the money away.

I feel your waitlist pain. Big time. What was the previous LSAT?
