I'm preparing to take the June LSAT and apply ED for my top choice.Does anybody know if the anecdotes out there have some truth to them? Does it pay to take the LSAT early and apply early, or is the difference negligible?I'm just wondering if a possible LSAT improvement is worth the risk of throwing my hat in during the October LSAT fray or if the benefits from applying early outweigh the minor improvement in the score.
If the percent of applicants decreases next year as it did this year (10% drop), then I would think that it would hurt you to apply early unless you are an auto-admit as mentioned above.
If you are borderline, would you prefer getting one look at your app or two? I got two looks with Harvard by applying in September and am happy with the result. I don't think anyone would suggest holding your apps until a certain period of time just to gain an advantage - it doesn't exist.
