December LSAT disadvantage

Postby tapenade » Thu Jun 25, 2015 7:06 am

So I'm currently living and working abroad. Planning to take the LSAT abroad as well. I've been out of the loop in terms of admissions trends, though I'm assuming its still somewhat of an (high scoring) applicant's market. My concern is that because my study schedule was interrupted by planning/moving abroad, I think I might be better off taking the December test rather than this month's or September/October.

Is the December disadvantage still a myth? Was it ever? I would really rather not wait another year, but obviously not going without some $$$$$.

the first thing I'd be concerned about is leaving room for retakes if you are planning on attending the following fall

the other thing is yes, it will leave you at a disadvantage for some scholarships (NYU's named scholarships have like a Nov. deadline I think).

As far as just admissions you won't be at too much of a disadvantage, and if you have great numbers you'll probably see little impact
