if i wait until the last opportunity to take the lsat and send in my app toward the deadline, am i at a disadvantage to people who applied earlier?

thanks.

Read other posts about applying early vs. late.  Lazy bum...

But to answer your question, the general consensus here is "Yes"

How late is your definition of late?  My friend took Dec. LSAT and turned in applications pretty late and was accepted at three places and waitlisted at two others.  However, most people seem to think this is not a good idea, and I would also agree.  The earlier you can get them in, the better is the consensus - especially if you have borderline numbers.

i was thinking jan/feb.  might have to wait until the next year though.

Oooh - that is probably too too late on the late scale.  Good luck anyway!
