Is applying in Dec. fine? Because I've been studying for a month and Dec. is when I plan on taking the test. That's not going to be "late" or a hindrance on my chance to get into schools/scholarships will it? Assuming, obviously, that my numbers and application check out fine.
Why not take in September? There is still over two months for prep. What was your baseline PT score? How are you studying? And how often?
My PT was a 153. I've only studied for a month, month and a half, but the last few weeks have been a little rough. I've been fasting in observance of Ramadan, which makes it hard to focus and also limits the time I can study for numerous reasons. On average I study 3 hours a day, and more on the weekends. I haven't studied in 3 or 4 days because of workplace events. But Ramadan ends this Saturday and I can go back to studying full-time. However, I'm going on vacation from June 30 - July 4, and from July 15 - 22, so that's even more time I'm missing out on. I began with LR in the Trainer and have just started working on Manhattan LG.
All that is to say, I don't see how that gives me enough time to prepare for September. I mean, can I not send in my application BEFORE I take the test and then have them just waiting for my score? What's the difference between me doing that and another person telling the school to wait on their updated score after retaking in December?
You may wish to consider starting with LG and mastering those and then going to LR. I found that sequence really helpful. All of the time I put in up front to mastering LG really helped on the June test.
