Horrible time.  Puts you at a BIGTIME disadvantage, due to rolling admissions.  You'd be competing for the very last spots at a time when most other applicants have multiple offers.  You should apply next cycle.  I waited out a year and it was a great decision.  Law school, and the debt you'll incur, isn't something you just jump into @ the last second.  You have to do it the correct way.  Applying early in the cycle is the single most important piece of advice given to all applicants from the experts.

TITCR. December is absolutely the latest you can reasonably take the LSAT to apply in this cycle, and you just don't have enough time left for that. The rank of your law school is just too important to risk trying to apply that late.
