First time posting. Im looking to apply to various T-13 schools around November. I am an URM, Div. 1 athlete, with 3.7gpa. I attend T-30 Private liberal arts school where I am the founder and Pres. of a Community Service Org., a committee chair in the student athlete advisory committee and I have recently co-founded a startup company to promote social equity. I am also working this summer at a BB-IB in S&T.
(Not trying to sound braggadocios, just wanted to be transparent)
Im sort of freaking out about studying due to lack of time/general nervousness lol. Was wondering how much soft factors can actually help? majority of what I have seen is that LSAT + GPA are most important components (which makes sense) but if I underperform on test could soft factors make a significant difference in placement?
Any response would help! Was thinking IB/finance track, but realized law was better for me late in the game.

If you underperform on the LSAT, you can take it again. As a URM with a decent GPA, you'll have good opportunities if you work to reach your full potential on the test.

You have lots of time between now and November, which you should spend studying rather than worrying about what if. If October rolls around and you’re nowhere near where you want to be on your practice tests, then you can think about whether you need to study more/push back the test or change your goals/expectations. Right now, just study.
