ED v. EA??

ED v. EA??
« on: October 05, 2007, 12:51:46 PM »
So I'm looking at a few different law schools and am interested in getting my application in as early as possible.  I took the LSAT in Sept, have all my letters of rec and transcripts in, so all I need to finish up are my PS and resume and submit all the apps to have completed files.

My question is, some schools mention applying by Nov 1 for EA, while others refer to it as ED.  My question is, which one is "binding"??

Thanks for the help!

Generally, EA is not binding and ED is.

ED = Generally binding

EA = Generally not binding.

Check the language of each school to be certain. Oh, and you will probably have to sign something if it is binding.

Thanks for the help.  Let me ask you this question though, in regards to the applications that each law school requires, there's an area at the end that requires each applicant to sign their name.  However, if I submit my apps online, I obviously can't sign them.  Any idea on what to do in this situation?   ???

Thanks again!!

A FEW schools ask you to "certify" you application my mailing them a form with your signiture. Most schools take the application submission and your payment as verification.
