do you want to apply to law school this year so that you can begin your first year of law school in the fall?

If so, the Feb exam is risky, as the results won't be available till March, so your application won't be complete till about mid-March if all else is in...this means that at many schools, the class is already filled by the time your app is complete. Even if the class isn't already filled by that time, it will be really competitive to get whatever few spots that are left.

If, on the other hand, you want to start applying to law schools in the fall, so that you can begin your studies in Fall '07, then you're right, the Feb. exam gives you lots of time to prepare.

hope this helps

The scores will be sent around Feb 27 not in the middle of March.
