Application Deadlines -
« on: March 02, 2008, 09:13:46 PM »
How do these work?  Is the date listed as a school's application deadline the date you need to have submitted your application by?  Or the date by which everything needs to be complete?  I'm a hardcore procrastinator and just sent out all applications for Fall 2008 on February 26th trying to beat March 1st deadlines.  Of the 31 schools I applied to, 26 requested reports on February 27th, but the remaining schools have not.

Anyone know how this works?  Did I beat the deadline for the schools that requested my report before March 1st?  What about the schools that haven't requested one yet?

Wow, 31 schools! Suddenly I feel better about the whole "Applications are up this year!" panic. They are all you!  ;)

I had an LSAC fee waiver, so I assumed it'd be free to apply to all these places.  Then I just got a MASSIVE bill from LSAC, because I didn't know that after my first four "free" reports, I'd be charged $12 per.  I didn't even know what a "report" was prior to applying.  But I figured I might as well just pay the $300 or so.  Sure beats the.. several thousand I would've had to pay in application fees.
