IngotThe Benefits of Applying Early

In 2011, Cincinnati Law saw its second highest number of applications ever for its fall incoming class. As a result, those applying to law school for 2012 or beyond should not underestimate the value of submitting their applications early in the process. At Cincinnati Law applications for Fall 2012 admission are being accepted now until March 1, 2012. Though this window of time spans several months, many applicants wait until right before the deadline to apply.

Since applications are reviewed by our admission committee on a rolling basis, waiting to apply can mean your application being part of a very large group at the end. This can make it harder for an application to stand out given the committee has already reviewed so many other candidates. Applying earlier in the process to Cincinnati Law and other "rolling" schools also means applicants should learn of their admission decision sooner, thus giving themselves more time afterwards to make a final decision on which law school they wish to attend. Many admitted applicants in the past have also benefitted from having more time then to make a visit (or second visit) or speaking with faculty and/or students before paying an admission seat deposit.
