Notify 1st choice that you have been accepted elsewhere?
« on: July 14, 2007, 03:45:02 PM »
I was wondering if I should tell my number one choice that I will be attending a higher ranked school but if given the opportunity, even up to the first day of classes, I would happily move back and attend?

Would this benifit me or hurt my chances?

They probably know already. I dunno if law schools have spies or what (or perhaps they just share info....), but mine knew where else I'd been accepted and where I'd put down a deposit without my saying anything about it.

I think they may have to report it to LSADAS or somewhere like that.

titcr. by june 15 law schools that participate in the overlap reporting service provide lsac with information about applicants who have paid deposits or have given committments at other schools.
