Applying with the December LSAT isn't as bad as it's been historically. Ppl were still getting $$$ of waitlists in April May last year (not the norm but just saying its not throwing out of contention). At some point the market will correct (we've already seen that the medians didn't take as big of a hit this year as the 2 years before) and apps will start to go back up as ppl see medians changing etc. Who knows if it will be this cycle or next or the one after, but applying to an earlier cycle is better if the score is completive.
I'll go back to the sept thread now
I encourage you to come here as often as you desire to back up my positions.
Mist: I don't think January is considered late anymore. There is way less pressure to get things out by Thanksgiving. I've heard different blogs throw around getting everything in by MLK Jr. Day. Sure, the earlier the better is best. But the "apply by" date has definitely slid into the New Year based on what I've read.
I plan on applying the first full week of January.

I've just always lived by the belief that "early is on time, on time is late." I also haven't read anything about the LSAT since last Jan/Feb, so i guess my knowledge isn't exactly up to date.
If you can get it in early w a score u want then you're winning for sure. Just saying that's not required but it is def helpful
