I was much like you last year. Around mid-November I had decided to pursue law school. I figured I would have plenty of time to study. In my opinion, it was too much time. I burned out and became sick of the tests and I think it hurt my score in the end. But only by a couple points, though. So I think I would advise to take the test in February. Study hard and this way you will peak when you take the test. Make sure you take practice tests in timed conditions. Generally, I would take them in two section blocks. Although, I did take full test, too. I hope this has helped. Good Luck!
