i'd advise against taking the dec lsat unless you're planning to apply next year
i really hope i get enough of a score so that i can at least know the yale 250word essay won't go to waste lol
are you finished with your personal statement?
In either case, I'm not applying to any law schools until I have an actual LSAT score on file that will give me a reasonable chance of getting into a law school in the U.S. or Canada with excellent job placement rates in at least one of North America's four largest legal markets: NY, DC, Chicago, and Toronto. That's pretty much the U.S. top 8 and maybe Northwestern.
If my score's too low, I'm going to buy the Manhattan books and study for three months to take in February (when my job is slow) for applying next cycle.
I did something like a PS when I applied to the London School of Economics MSc last year. It got me accepted, though without scholarship, so I think with some tweaking, it will work.
