I would apply early. If you're placed on the wait list at a school, inform them that your LSAC GPA has changed in December. They will probably look at your file again. I saw people get off the wait list in January at schools after receiving their improved LSAT score.
Yeah but its just a shame, would have liked my application to be "full". Im actually going to intern at a law office (possibly for the state) in the spring which wont show up on my application. Would that have an impact on my application or is it not a big deal?
