Most of the schools that I am considering says that they recommend taking the June,October, or December LSAT the year prior to applying. However, after my recent score I have decided to sit out a cycle and take the test in Feb. Why do schools not recommend a Feb. test date? Will it hurt my chances if I take in Feb?

I think most schools are assuming that you'll apply immediately with your score, since I don't think many people plan to take the exam in February and then wait until the next cycle. There are also a few quirks associated with the February exam, as it's undisclosed. You'll only find out your score. You won't know how many you got wrong or which ones you got wrong and the curve won't be released either. If you can deal with this, then you might as well take it. But keep in mind that there are benefits to waiting until June. There's more time to study, the test is in the afternoon, and you'll get a break-down of your score.
