Do you have any reason not to sit out a cycle? As some other people on this thread have said, taking time off is not only good because you can apply early next cycle--it also gives you more time to work/be an adult/party/etc.

You can definitely tell them to hold your application until your LSAT score comes out.
screw sitting out a cycle. Take the February test
You post the worst advice, seriously. The February test for this cycle? Really?
Yes. If the scores come back high enough, they'll be counted. Hell, last cycle there are people who used a June retake and got the results they wanted. Remember, if OP doesn't get the cycle s/he wants, OP doesn't need to attend and can then retake again in June or October.

There are reasons for sitting out a cycle. Doesn't mean it should be the default option
