Because we dont know which "level" of school you are trying to apply to; just naming so many schools would be a lot. I will say that if you are applying to schools in the top 25 (U.S. News basis), the book How to Get Into the Top Law Schools by Richard Montauk has deadlines in it and whether they are binding are not. Not at home to look at page number, but its in there.

This cycle, i applied to NYU (Oct 15th had to have taken June LSAT or earlier), Penn, Duke and Texas (I think Nov 1.), and Georgetown (Nov 10) all early and non-binding and started hearnig back in early Dec. I knew before the winter holidays were over that I was in to all 5. So applying early can give you a great shot at knowing (note that some schools may just defer you to the regular app pool)

I didnt apply to Columbia early b/c it is binding, and I think Chicago and Cornell have like nov 1st early deadlines, but i applied in Jan only after getting app fee waivers from both

Another way to find out if a school you are applying to has early app is to just look yourself to ;)

Hey, bruin04?  3.6/172 are excellent numbers but I wouldn't ordinarily think of them as warranting very substantial $$$ at NYU, UVa and GULC.  What's your secret?  Thanks in advance and congrats on superb results!

Not that much really; grades & LSAT pretty much cover it, plus a few Ec's, but none really spectacular. The $$ that I got from UVa and NYU are in line with others w/my numbers, and GULC's award was based on financial need, which I have lots of.

WUSTL has a binding early decision and also an early action program. I can't recall the dates off the top of my head, but I think it's November 1.
Hastings also has an early decision program.
