Is November too late to apply for Law School?

I am a non traditional student, out of college for over ten years now. I was hoping to just take the july LSAT but its looking like my schedule has definitely impeded my studying. If i took the test in November so i can really take the proper time for PTs would that be putting me at a disadvantage admissions wise? I already have a bit of an uphill battle due to a low UGPA.

    No it isn’t too late.
    Just have the rest of your application ready to be submitted as soon as your score is released.

    If you take the November test, then your score should be released in early December. Even if you submit everything else earlier, your application will be deemed complete only after your score is received.

    December is not that late, but it's not early either.

    Just to clarify, I assume you’re applying to American schools?

    Yes, american schools.

    I was aiming for September LSAT but I have a ten day trip scheduled in the middle of august so I feel losing those 10 days may not be the best thing ramping up for September 8.

    No it isn't too late. As long as you submit the day you get your scores you'll be fine.

    Some schools are still taking applications until July 15 for admission this fall. You'll have time to retake the exam if you wanted to as well.

    Sept-Oct is early, Nov-Dec is middle, Jan+ is late. You have the best chance in September, about 15% better odds (with same stats) than a student who applies after January, maybe a few percent better than November/December.
