Yes, your only hope is to get that 170, and then write an adendum, and then pray.

Sorry to hear you went down. That always sucks.

I would say dont put so much pressure on yourself to get a 170. You dont need added pressure on top of the pressure the LSAT and law school apps already brings. To answer your question yea you have a shot at some T14's with a 170. If you can score that high just write an addendum explaining how one of your ho's broke up with you the night before during sex and you couldnt concentrate on the LSAT the following day because everytime you flipped a page you could hear her/him telling you again "This is over". Good story?

Good luck! You'll do great in Oct.

The more you panic the worse you will do on the test. What is your UGPA?

Is your biggest problem with the LSAT time? Do you find that during the test you are rushing through things without checking them, or having to guess at the end of each section?
Or are you finishing and just gettings answers wrong?

I was PTing at around 169 before the test. I got killed on the logic games section and I knew it and that extended itself into the rest of the test.


Okay call me crazy but I think this is good news in disguise because at least you can pinpoint what went wrong...My advice is to work your way through every logic game prep book you can find. I actually found the Princeton Review workbook the most helpful and easy to work through. That's where I got most of my diagramming techniques from (I know that's heresy on this site where we worship at the altar of powerscore). The more curveballs you've seen in the games in practice the less you'll panic when you see the real test games.

Also helpful-a day or two before the test go to the testing location, find an empty room and take your final timed preptest. Helped me shake the nerves on test day, not sure why.

Now I did worst this time around, but I sent in a cancellation letter which never got processed, and there is no way I can fight it.

I am freaking out because I got a 159.

If I end up with a 170 for the October test, do I still have a shot at the lower end of the t-14?

edit - literally, having a panic attack!!


A couple things to remember.

1) There is such a thing as an addendum.

2) Some schools in the T-14, in fact most schools in the T-14, don't look at all your LSAT scores, they only look at the highest. Unless you want to go to CCN or HYS, you should be fine as long as you can score well on your next LSAT: But, you must score well then, unless you are going to wait.

3) Don't take a course. Study your ass off, but most courses won't help you much at the level you are preptesting at.
