Hold on, let me look at the data on LSN and get back to you.
Edit: looks like the latest one on LSN is Nov 2 with the Thanksgiving batch. I'd suggest just trying to get it in before the Oct LSAT scores come out.
Hmmm. So if I submit my materials right when the Oct. scores come out would I be likely to make it in the first batch? I thought about submitting before they come out but my LSAT is below the 25th percentile so I'd be dumped in the rejects pretty swiftly... I'd rather just submit with the higher score but I don't want to be disadvantaged in terms of the time of applying. I need all the help I can get!
It honestly depends on what your new LSAT score is. If it's right at median with a ~3.8, then you most likely won't be with the first batch. I think the first batch is more-or-less reserved for people with fantastic numbers. I haven't actually looked at all the data, but anecdotally, that's the impression I've gotten.
