I’m getting a lot of calls from people signed up for the October LSAT who are wondering whether they are really ready to take the test. The number one thing law school applicants in this quandry want to know is whether it’s better to apply early with a lower score, or later (with a December LSAT score) that’s a few points higher. I always tell my clients it’s better to have 5 points on the LSAT and apply at the end of December than to have the lower score and apply in November.
Here’s a post I wrote last year that may help you to decide whether to go ahead and take the LSAT in October, or wait for December. It’s called “Are you Ready for the LSAT?“
