Go ahead and try to get into one of the very best law schools, to begin in Fall 2012. Don't worry about the official deadlines. There's some bizarre desperation out there, apparently, so act now. It's a buyer's market.
If all the high-LSAT folks spring for open positions now, what will happen in the new round of applications next winter? A lower LSAT score will go further, presumably. Or will the schools wait to pounce on the best June 2013 scores?
If you're at a safe distance, enjoy the theater of the popping law school bubble.
