Things to Do Right Now for Law School Applications

Here are the big questions today:

Q: Can I submit applications even though LSAC hasn't received/processed my letters of rec yet?

Q. Should I put my name and LSAC Account number on each attachment to my application?

Q. Should I check each school's web site for the application requirements instead of relying on the LSDAS on line application?

I hope this is helpful to those of you up late tonight working on your applications. Just never press "submit" at midnight. Seriously. That's how mistakes are made.

And since it's now approaching midnight on the West Coast, I'll say goodnight. To my So Cal clients and friends - stay safe. I hope the fires are not affecting you.


  1. Hi Ann,

    I came across this old post and am hoping you can answer a question for me. I took the LSAT in December and have all of my applications ready to go. I had a little problem with one of my letters of recommendation, and it was just sent to LSAC last week. Do you recommend that I wait until the letter is processed before submitting my applications, or go ahead and submit them without the letter? My thought was that I should just wait a few more days until my letter is processed, rather than risk my application being looked poorly upon since it is incomplete. But then I came across this post and saw question #1 and am reconsidering. Any advice would be great! Thank you!

  2. Thank you! Your blog is great -- I've been reading it throughout my application process and each time I come to your site, I find some information that I didn't know before. You do an excellent job!
