I doubt you will find out until the last week of July no matter how early you apply.
First, thanks for the responses.Second, I am not sure which school it is because I am not back at my apartment (have everything laid out there). Only the application portion is due May 1, not the entire file (LOR, transcripts, certification, etc.). Two schools are due June 30 or July 1 for the entire thing (application included). On the application, it asks the other schools to which I am applying. Does it look better to say "none" (not a lie, but consciously decide to only apply to one)? When I sign the application, I am essentially saying that everything on it is true. What if I think that is the only one I want to apply to, then change my mind later?I am not worried about when I hear back. I was concerned with the process: rolling admissions or simply admit/reject. I figured that the sooner I get my application in the better, but since my file won't be completed until later I guess it won't really matter.
Does the transfer group follow some sort of rolling admissions or just accepted/rejected? Do you suggest sending the applications ASAP or waiting until I am confident that I have everything I need on the application? For example, we have a 1L Moot Court competition from the middle to the end of March. My application and statements are done, but I was thinking about waiting until the end of March to see if I win the competition. I feel as though this would look good on my transfer application if I won the competition or did well (made the finals).ETA: The application(s) are not due until May 1 and would go out the last week in March (if I wait). The files do not need to be completed until July 1. If I do not wait until the competition, I would send them out beginning of March.
