I second the opinion below. The earlier you begin preparing, the better. And if you are feeling really good come June...take the June exam!
Ok thank you. But even if I am feeling really good come June.......wouldn't it be too late to register for the test in June?
Register now...see how you're feeling...wait until the latest possible date. You get only $45 back if you register and then cancel your registration. But, you can also just change the test date to October for a $33 fee.
You have until May-15th to register for the June exam, but you'll pay $127 + $64. But, by May-15th you should know whether you will be ready.
It doesn't sound like you will be, but you have options.
The only thing taking the June LSAT does is give you an opportunity to spend more time on your essays, screw up June and still take the October exam, apply ED at a school, and get things out of the way sooner. A June score means being done doing applications by mid-October...a big advantage.
My advice? Take the October test. You can still apply ED to a school with an October score and be done with all of your applications by late November. Don't rush. I only advocate taking June's exam if you think you can really be ready. That means hitting your target score repeatedly (take at least 20 practice exams). You sound like you need to get things in order. Take your time.
Thanks for the detailed response. I really appreciate that. Yes, I definitely need to get things in order. I'm pretty much starting from scratch. All I've done so far is take a practice LSAT at Kaplan which was a disaster.
