Most schools only accept incoming 1Ls for Fall semester. There are a few schools which have JD programs that start in the Spring semester.

Sure.

If you take the test in June 2011, the earliest you should expect to start school is Fall Semester, 2012. You would take the test in June 2011, apply to all your schools in September 2011, get answers [hopefully] by April 2012, and take your first law school class in August 2012.

There are a few schools which admit students for the Spring semester, which changes the above to: take the test in June 2011, apply in September 2011, get answers [hopefully] by December 2011, and take your first law school class in January 2012. I can actually only think of one school which offers a January start date though.

I agree with this.

Yup - like others said, you'll take the test in June 2011 and start applying to them in the fall. Acceptances will come in winter 2011 to spring 2012, then you'll attend law school in the fall of 2012.

The summer is a great time to take the LSAT, in my opinion. That way, if you're not happy with your score, you can take it again. Plus, since you'll get your score back in the late summer, you can start applying to law schools as soon as they begin accepting them. And the earlier you apply, the better your chances of getting in.

Good luck! :)
