LSATs, rolling admissions, etc.

hi everybody,

law school admissions are looming for next year and I've begun to study for the LSATs. I am set on maxing out my score as much as possible and my research says you need 4-5 months to sufficiently prepare.

i'm debating between taking the december and october LSAT. if i take the december LSAT, I'll have less time and less of a chance in the admissions process since they're rolling. if i wait till october I'm afraid i won't get a good enough score even though my application would be turned in earlier.

its ambitious but I plan to have my packet done with the LSAT as the last "piece" to complete.

is this unwise? should i buck up and just take the LSAT in october or is it sufficiently worth it to wait?

hey guys, still no reply, so maybe my question was a bit too vague.

how much are your chances affected if you wait till jan to apply versus november? is it significantly less?

another way to put it...

how quickly do ivy leagues fill up available spaces before the application process is over in february?
