I'm a professional working in politics. My plan was to apply this fall, then defer acceptance till 09 so I could work on the presidential election. I had targeted to get my applications in between mid-Dec. and Jan. But I know feel that this is too late in the game. I decided instead to have everything ready for next year so I can get them in in mid Oct.
My question relates to recommenders I have already gotten rolling on this. Is it okay for them to submit rec's for me to lsac this year even if I don't use them until next year? Or should I tell them to hold off and submit them this spring or summer? For more detail, I have 3 recommenders committed, but only 1 who I know is currently working on it.
