Applying before graduation?

Applying before graduation?
« on: October 22, 2012, 03:08:53 PM »
I met with the admissions director at UT law today and she told me that since I'm graduating in fall of  2013 I should start applying to schools around November of that year for the fall class of 2014. I'm wondering, won't applying early hurt my chances for aid and acceptance?  I would assume most schools wouldn't really look at an application from someone who hasn't officially graduated yet, but maybe I'm wrong.  Does anyone know how this works?
