How much does it hurt my chances to apply for law school in December/Jan than October?

I missed the July 23 deadline to register for the September LSAT and now have to take it in November. Assuming I apply with a 3.89 GPA (from an OK state school) and high 170 LSAT score, what are my chances of getting into a T14 law school, specifically a T3? Are my chances significantly worse? Should I just wait until next year's June LSAT and take a gap year?

Thank you

    Cant you still apply to the school but just have your November scores sent to them so that its the only thing they have to wait for?

    Applying in late November/early December (likely when scores are released) will not hurt you, especially with those scores.
    Just have the rest of your application submitted or ready to go as soon as that LSAT score is released.

    You're mostly risking scholarship.

    A good article from 7sage admissions on this question:

    You can proactively submit your application to the school and request that they anticipate your November scores.
