I'm taking the LSAT tomorrow but if for some reason I need to retake in December, would that affect scholarship offers? Or am I good as long as apps are in before the first of the year?
It's best to get your apps in before Thanksgiving. But it's always better to apply with a higher Dec LSAT than applying early fall.

i think with lower application rates, the idea of applying early is becoming less important. It's probably more important as you climb up the ladder into the higher-ranked schools T14 etc, but generally speaking, i think admission decisions are generally coming later in the cycle, since schools in today's legal world are having trouble filling slots.

Less important, sure, but it's still not a bad thing to do. Applying earlier is always better.

I would say you should always apply early, no later than November. Even if you are taking the LSAT in December, apply early

This is flat out wrong.

Applying later with a higher score is always better than applying early.
Well no shit, assuming you have been studying the last four, or three strong years of your life, scratch that, *academic career*
Update: sorry, I forgot I took out the last part of my original post, and I didn't realize how detrimental it was to me stating my idea lol!
originally I said apply early and update. Anyway, send in your new score and even send in an addendum if you absolutely have to

Is there a disadvantage in applying in December as to applying early (Nov) and update in December?

You run the risk of them not waiting to see your higher score and catching a rejection/WL in the meantime.

Thanks. I'll stay away from applying without the Dec score.
