Thanks for your opinion on that Mike. Looking forward to your Friday release but in the meantime I have one more question area:
Would registering for the December LSAT negate the benefits of applying very early in the cycle? My GPA is sub-25th percentile for my target schools and my LSAT is only just above median (i.e. YH). I am hoping on my retake to exceed their 75th percentile to better my splitter chances. I am concerned the schools will wait until January to render a decision they may render much earlier otherwise (i.e. in the event I do not reach my target score an early cycle acceptance could become a late-cycle deny; my goal with the retake obviously is for a potential early cycle deny to become a late-cycle acceptance). Is it standard operating procedure to render the acceptance as soon as the acceptance is called for with current data even if an additional data point (read: a new LSAT score) is forthcoming? I realize if my candidacy is borderline they will surely wait.
