Indicating Pending Score?

Hi all, sorrry if there’s already a very clear post about this!

I’m submitting my applications for this fall (I know, late af) and would like to indicate that I have a Jan 2019 score pending.

I’ve read various accounts about what schools do (some waiting without getting prompted and some processing your application as-is) and just want to play it safe.

What do you guys recommend?

    I think the best thing to do is submit your apps as soon as possible and e-mail the schools, ask them to consider your January 2019 score when they make their final decision. It will be better to let them know so they don't automatically make the decision without your new score.

    Best of luck!

    I agree with Beast Mode. It is good to be explicit with what you would like the Admissions Committee to do so they aren't left guessing. Good luck!

    Don't worry I'm also sending my apps in Feb too! It happens! :/

    Thanks guys! I don’t totally know what you mean by “email the schools” but i’ll do some digging and see who I can reach out to (I went ahead and pressed submit!).

    Congrats on submitting. By e-mailing the schools means contact the Admissions Committee as Selene indicated and ask them to take into consideration your January 2019 score when they make their final decision.

    that’s a reachable audience? the admissions committee? i feel like i’d at most find some general admissions email address and hope for the best.

    but i’ll look! i’ve been busy not doing anything law school related

    Yea email the admissions office asking them to place a hold on your app till the score comes out. Their email address is always accessible on their website. They have access to your file, so they can make the updates as needed.
