My advice to my recommenders:

"Don't @#!* this up for me."

Unless your tenses are wrong, I don't see how this could work. You took it freshman year you say. Assuming you took the latest one freshman year and you are graduating as a junior that's two years from that to graduation. Wouldn't that mean you would have to apply during your junior year at Harvard and graduate there early as well? Since fall of your junior year would be more than five years after.....assuming of course that this is not a flame.
It works because I skipped sophomore year.

Why would anyone put themselves through the hell that is an official LSAT administration for no reason?

I love taking standardized tests.  I took the PSAT when I was 9 and the SAT when I was 13.  When there's no pressure and you don't have to study, it's a lot easier.  IDK, I'm just really gifted at standardized tests.

So what you're saying is you did high school in two years - freshman and junior?
At this rate you'll be retired at 33 and dead at 40.

I picked the roses and smell them as I walk.  Anyway, I have a strong financial reason to rush to college.

You want to spend more of your parents money faster?

I'm getting a full ride thanks to financial aid.  It's far more expensive for me to remain at home.
