Two parter to grad school admission.

1. With the semester ending last week, yet Xmas upon us, is it the best possible time or worst possible time to ask a professor for a recommendation? I have a deadline of Feb. 15th to join her program and until March for another couple programs I will apply to.
2. Help me interpret my GRE psychology subject score. I had posted this back in November regarding scores.
and I was shooting for a bare minimum 700 (approx 80 percentile) (I had a terrible allergy attack the morning of the test which I'm sure hurt my score.) 670 (66th percentile) was my score. Fairly mediocre, here is the scoring guide
. However I scored in the 96th percentile
on the social psyc subscore and 59th in the experimental subscore. I know the subject exam is considered one of the best predictors
of graduate school performance and according to this I seem to show promise on the social side. Will admissions take into account my extremely high subscore or just the less than stellar total?
