It turns out that I had filled out an individual E-APP from one of the school's web sites. Apparently if you fill an
E-APP, but are not a LSACD customer, it flags your account in someway to prevent further access to OTHER LSACD e-apps.
When I later purchased the LSACD-ROM, the account was in a locked-state which prevented me from electronically transmitting the LSACD data. Bottom line... buy the LSACD BEFORE filling out any school-sponsored e-apps.
