Just added, and I've taken the liberty of changing your graph for you. HTH :D

(Although the sample size is now really small)

Just curious, how did you do that? Those results don't look too shabby imo. Thanks!

If you go to the website where the search is (you can click on the graphs above), you can now select an option under URM that says "AA Only" and it will restrict your search to people on LSN who, under Race, identify themselves as AA.

Crazy how much of a difference that makes! The sample size may be smaller, but it's much more helpful and realistic now.

11 practice tests isn't nearly enough, unless you scored a 175 on the test. For that person, 11 tests is enough. For most, 11 tests isn't and just relying on the Logic Bibles isn't sufficient. My experience is that a lot of folks underachieve on the test. And don't work as hard as they should. I'd be pissed if I knew I let slip a chance at whatever school because I just didn't prepare the way people who scored 180s prepared.

Good point. I took a full prep course too and was studying as much as my schedule would allow. Used LG bible to just supplement.
