What is the earliest that I can apply? I have called the schools and they say October, late October, around there. If I get it in too early will that be bad? If I apply via LSACD and submit my apps as early as allowed (Sept. 8 I called) will the schools get it right away or will they not pull it off the LSAC database until later? Will they check the LSAC database as soon as they start accepting aps?
I want to get in as early as possible, I am stressing so much. What are my admission chances to USC and UCLA with a 3.33 from a university in the top 35, and a 168 LSAT? Will being from NY help or hurt when applying to Cali?
