Well it depends on what Best means. If youre going by US News rankings you probably have the numbers to get into Iowa, Indiana, and Wisconsin. All are top 40 schools. Wisconsin is actually a pretty attractive school. Madison is very nice and the school as a reasonable pull in Chicago. My friend will be a 2L there in the fall.Where are you from and where do you want to practice?
All of those schools have deflated numbers due to instate rules. In reality the OP should apply to all 20-80 ranked schools he would attend and see what happens.
Well I figured the earlier I apply the better chance of getting in, so if I take the October LSAT and didn't do better, it would hurt my chances even more. Also I won't have nearly the amount of time I had to study for the June LSAT when school is going on. And last, I wouldn't have much to pracice with because I already took all the recent tests to practice for the June LSAT.
