I've been worrying about the same thing. I was looking at people on LSN who applied later who have the same GPA and my hopeful LSAT score to see how they did last year. I'm hoping with the extra time, I will be able to really boost my LSAT score so that the late application won't kill my cycle. Although, I haven't ruled out that I might have to wait and apply next cycle...
Are most of you planning on applying this cycle? Or are you just taking the LSAT early? Anyone else feeling nervous?
I really would hate to wait another cycle though. But, it sucks to know you'd only have one shot only. If you have stellar numbers it wont matter when you apply. I know two people who applied well after the Harvard deadline and were accepted. But, one of them had a 3.8 and a 172 retake. Probably didn't get much merit aid though.
Definitely on the same page as you, not interested in waiting another year...just nervous that I might have to wait another year if not accepted to any schools/like you said, there is only one chance with December. I guess I am starting to mentally prepare now just in case! Although, trying to stay optimistic...Unfortunately my gpa is already not great (3.5ish) so I am hoping to really kill the lsat in December to have any chance this cycle.
