If you're applying for the fall, applications are usually due early that same year (Jan - Mar). It varies by school, though - some are on rolling admissions.

They honestly do not care what you get in your final examinations as long as you don't drop from AAA predicted to CCD actual grades. US students are accepted before the final semester grades are out, and many many people slack off at that point, and still get to keep their place. Just do well in ASes and get good predictions

Depending on where you're looking at, for Fall 2010 start applications are often due Jan 1 2010 (regular decision) or Dec 1 2009 (ED/EA), some unis are later and others are on rolling admissions (they review your app as the applications go in). You have to do SAT Reasoning, SAT Subjects, write essays and get teacher recs etc. before that.

'Fall' as in university start dates is usually Aug/September.

And no, mid-2009 is not early at all :yep: Though if you have AS/A2 examinations then it would be better to focus on those and then take the SAT in October or November. I did my SATs in May/June this year (though I only had one IB exam) and I'm hopefully headed to uni in 2009.

Depends on the person - some grasp the SAT almost intuitively, others need quite a bit of practice to get better. I'd say try a mock test (there's one on the CB website), see how you do, and take it from there.

Depends on your definition of 'good' and there's no standard minimum, but obviously the higher the score the better. You can look at your results and make some selections/deselections loosely based on that, if you please.

Law school is a postgrad qualification here and they don't care much about SATs. More important is the LSAT (Law School Admission Test), your undergrad marks and undergrad extracurriculars/internships.

+1 to Agneisse's comments.

Typically, people try to hit 700 or better in each section to get into the average range for many top schools. Keep in mind though that there is no score that will be sure to get you into a certain school; do your best and you will be fine.
