Can I get into law school with a 145 LSAT score?

What does the T stand for in LSAT?

Can I take LSAT writing at any time?

Can you take the November LSAT and still apply?
You should aim to have your applications submitted by October or November in the year before you’d start your first year at law school (so October or November 2020 if you plan on starting law school in fall 2021). Obviously, taking an LSAT after that October or November would prevent you from meeting this goal.
