Why can't you do both?

Can't do both because:

I have a kid a wife and I can't study both LSAT and go to school full time. I did it this time around and it was harsh.

Go for the higher LSAT, having two degrees is not all it is cracked up to be.

Entire Senate: @#!* THE POOR!

I am going to dissent with the rest and argue for the double major.
If you continue studying at your current pace, you are guaranteed to get a double major. However, even if you devote all your resources to studying for the LSAT, it may not result in a higher score. After all the studying in the world, you could mess up one logic game or a RC section and lose that several month investment that could have gone toward a double-major. So the double major is the safer bet.

Jubcoo, logic = flawed.

*Presumes without providing justification that a double major and better LSAT score are mutually exclusive options.
