On my very first timed LSAT, i basically freaked out and did horrible (147). Then I took a free Kaplan diagnostic a month or two later, and thought i did amazing on everything except for Games, i was wrong. Bombed Games and Logical Reasoning. Wound up with a 151. I have so much work to do with my regular classes and barely get to study as much as I would like.  I am signed up for the testmasters course in June, but I can't rely on that. I realistically need to get close to a mid 160 to balance out my GPA, and i am still struggling a ton with games. Would it be a bad choice to bump it back to September if i feel I am not ready for it  like 2 weeks before the Test?  BTW I am still a junior.

Bump it forward as long as taking the test later will not mess up your application cycle

you can realistically take it in september with no consequences but make sure you will actually prepare for it.  Dont make any plans for the summer.
Mr. White: Smoke?
Mr. Pink: I quit.

Mr. Pink: What, you got one?

I have an unpaid internship for like 16 hours a week, and i was also going to get a paying job. No summer classes though.

Make time for the LSAT. This test matters a lot. And no internship or job is more important than studying for it.

Correct. Be sure to have your LORs and transcripts in to the LSDAS well before your test date (if you want to be early).

I wouldn't have a job and internship while studying for the LSAT. Pick one.

Yeah, that's why I'm leaving my part-time job this month to really concentrate on studying for June. Got a ton of practice tests to take, and I need more time to look over the errors.

good point. I think i may only do the part time internship, screw a job (which would probably be waiting tables anyway)

If you're not ready, postpone it. And study, study, study.

Yeah, postpone if you don't feel like you're ready. That's what I did--was originally scheduled for February, but since my scores sucked, I postponed it till June, which is the latest I can go.
