Unless you want to wait a year or more to do something substantive, you're wasting your time with anything but LSAT prep. Good luck!

Thank you. If you don't mind me asking a follow up, is there anything I can do after taking the LSAT in September that might like somewhat helpful?

Two years of full-time work experience should help. During those two years, you should intern, volunteer, and otherwise keep busy on weekends and evenings. I'm thinking not just about law school admissions but about your future job search.

On the plus side, you have an interesting hobby. You might be able to turn that into a good personal statement.

If it can be done between taking the test and applying, it won't help much.

Write a good PS, maybe build something for a playground or some other way to utilize your skills that benefits others.
