LG was more difficult than October especially the last game. Was able to complete it though.

LR2 killed me. The worst. I ran out of time! I didn't get to three questions and had to rush on four questions. F*ckimg LSAT!!!

Going to go drink my sorrows away!

Congrats December takers, I'm sure you all did great, and you never have to see the LSAT again if you don't want to. Now go drink, or watch football, or whatever you want to do to that has nothing to do with the LSAT.

The retake was a STRUGGLE. I'm talking Miley Cyrus's performance at the VMAs, Kim/Kanye deciding to name their child North West, Rick Santorum comparing Obamacare to apartheid struggle.

Pretty sure I'm canceling. I improved significantly when I retook in October and I don't want to risk having to explain a worse score to adcomms. Anyone know how bad it'll look to get in the 170s and then cancel the next time?

I feel kind of meh about the Dec LSAT, and law school in general.

My October LSAT was a 161, which is decent, but even as an AA male with the URM-boost that may or may not exist; I still feel like my chances as a top 20 are slim to non-existent.

My Dec test was LG, LR, LG, RC, LR. If the first LG section isn't unscored I am fucked, the second LG went much more smoothly, but I still think I under-performed. I believe I did alright on the LR sections. I probably missed a few too many on the RC section, I had to guess on a few in the last passage.

My last five practice tests before taking the Dec exam ranged from 170-176. I was hoping to do that well on this exam, sadly it looks as if my hopes were misplaced. If I can get a 165 on this I will apply this cycle, if I don't pull at least a 165 I don't know what to do. Some posts seem to say I have a chance because of my race, some seem to imply I have no chance.

blllaaaah this post made no sense, I'm still brain dead from the exam. Good luck all.

What was your GPA and where did you go to UG? There was an AA male who got into SLS with a 3.67/161 a few cycles ago. If you have a 3.7+ I might apply this cycle regardless of your December score, especially due to the drop in applications. If you don't get into a school you'd like to attend, you could always retake/reapply for Fall 2015.

AA male with a 161, especially if looking at T20s, should have solid options with a 3.5+.

It's a 3.34 from a large southern state university.

I feel like I'm right on the edge, I don't want to be too optimistic, yet at the same time I don't want to sell myself short. I'm hoping this LSAT gives me the boost I need.

That's my hope as well. I guessed on the last 3 LG questions, and did not finish the last 2 questions of LR2. ugh. Dreams of Ivy...

I feel your pain. I've been staring at MyLSN for the last few hours.

I wish I could speak with this gal.
