Practice LSAT, No Prep

Postby lawschoolhopeful01 » Tue Jan 26, 2010 11:41 am

I just took a practice LSAT with no preparation and got a 150. I am currently a Junior with a 3.6 GPA. I hope to graduate in May 2011. Is a 150 with no prep expected? What should I be doing to increase the score. I am currently taking 18 hours and have little time at the moment to devote to the LSAT.

You need to make time if you want to do well.

With that gpa you'll need a 173 to a T6 school. So start studying.

Try to devote 2 hours per day to studying for the LSAT. There are still more than 4 months until the June test, so you have time to improve your score. Did you do badly in any particular section, or were the missed questions spread evenly across the sections?

I wouldn't worry about it. I know people that have picked up more than 20 points on their score since their first practice test.

got a 155 on my first pt, 172 on the real deal. And I think i could have done better if I kept studying i had a steady upward trend going. That being said I took 3 months and studied every day. Point being, I wouldn't worry if you are willing to put in the work, the test is very learnabl and you can make drastic improvements
