Timetable for the law school application process

Chicken Magazine of Magic Cookie offers a helpful step-by-step guide to making it through the convoluted law school application process. CM writes:
I found the application process overwhelming at first (what's this LSDAS thing? When should I take the LSAT?) So I decided to write a schedule for people who are at the same point I was last year around this time.
The guide includes a pointer to this Letter to a Young Law Student from Professor Corinne Cooper, a first-year law professor at the University of Missouri, Kansas City School of Law. Although I don't have time to read it at the moment, it looks excellent. Overall, another terrific resource for 0Ls. I would simply clarify for the absolute neophyte that the timetable starts in late winter two years before you'd actually like to start law school. This is probably the ideal plan (especially ifyou're applying straight out of college) because it provides plenty of time for everything; however, the process can also be condensed into one year if you prefer. Thanks CM!

Actually, I was thinking "late winter" as in now (the first few months of the year) -- so, late winter one year before you'd actually like to start law school. Well, one calendar year. So if you want to start school in 2006, the schedule starts now, in February 2005.

Hmm... I think I just made it even more complicated.
