They will slightly raise my LSAC GPA
I can have them arrive at LSAC the 25th but they are closed something like the 24th to 4th of January... so it sounds like they wouldn't be processed until then
I'm waiting on December score
Should I apply now and just have the GPA be updated a few days later? Do law schools have any issues with this?

What do you mean first semester? Are you a freshman in college? Why are you applying to law school? Do you mean your first semester for this school year?

Just apply when you get the LSAT score then update the transcript when you can

I mean the first semester of this year. I have 4 credits left after this semester which ends for me tomorrow.
