She laughed and said she hasn't even started studying yet, and asked how many I've taken. I said four, and she goes, "God, what are you trying to get into like Northwestern or something?"
Lol. Really?! Lol. Four huh? Northwestern huh? Lol. If you aren't consistently above 170, you are way under-doing it dude. If anyone thinks just four practice-test will prepare anyone not named "Will Hunting" or "Mike Ross" for a score high enough to get them into Northwestern, they are sorely misguided. Not that it can't be done, but even the smartest and most accomplished applicants take a minimum of 15-30 fully timed practice exams, and then break them apart and re-do them later. They study just about every available test...and those are people who are already good at the test and have 3.7-4.0 UGPA's. Read more LSAT prep threads and you will find out just how insane everyone here is when it comes to that test.
Note: Of course, not all students need 170+ to get into elite schools, but regardless of UGPA or soft factors, that's what you need to shoot for when preparing just to be safe.
