I would submit some lower T14 apps because some schools will ask you to interview and you can go ahead and complete all that and get in front of the line so to speak. However, many schools, if not all, will probably wait to give you a decision until your Dec score comes out.

Really? I thought this was only the case when you request them to hold your application.

Most apps require that you put when you have taken the LSAT or plan to take the LSAT. I think if you leave it off the app they can still see that you're registered. Some schools will give you a decision but I think most wait.

Apply now if your apps are all set to go. If they're not, don't waste valuable study time on that when a decision most likely won't be rendered before December anyways.
