I'm preparing to take the June LSAT and apply ED for my top choice.
Does anybody know if the anecdotes out there have some truth to them? Does it pay to take the LSAT early and apply early, or is the difference negligible?
I'm just wondering if a possible LSAT improvement is worth the risk of throwing my hat in during the October LSAT fray or if the benefits from applying early outweigh the minor improvement in the score.
You have plenty
of time to maximize your possible score for June. June-October isn't a huge difference in applications though. I think that December 1st is kind of the cut-off between applying early and otherwise. But yes, applications before that date seem to have an advantage. Every admissions consultant would agree that earlier = better as long as you have put the best foot forward in your apps.
