Well at least I tried but while i was doing that in front of big mirror in my bed room, My neighbor was able to get a little glimpse because window was open. He immeditely called me on my phone and asked if I need some "Help". I said thanks for offer but I am just getting ready for LSAT.

A question for Woozy and other 180 scorers who may be around:

Were you consistently scoring 180 on PTs before the real thing? I've been getting high 170s consistently with only 180 so far, and I'm trying to figure out what the best plan is for Saturday. I suppose it wouldn't make much sense to cancel a score in the high 170s (if I should be so fortunate), but I wonder at times...

First, you won't know what your score is until about three weeks after you can still cancel it. Second, canceling a high 170s score (if you somehow knew you'd be getting a 177 or whatever) would be insane. The difference between a 177 and 180 is not very huge vis-a-vis getting into a top school.

Your best plan for Saturday is to get a good night's sleep, get your mind focused before the test, don't panic, and stick to your game plan. Obviously whatever you are doing is working, so just be ready to shut out the whole world and kill that test.

find a girl with huge boobs taking the test with you and stare at them.

when she notices you staring at her magnificent boobs and gives you a repulsed look, continue staring at those wondrous boobs.

180...guaranteed.

The amount of PTs I took was really low by TLS standards, about half a dozen total, and only a couple of those after most of my practice, so I was not consistently scoring 180s.

Even though my practice was aimed at maximizing 180 chances, I think I had maybe a 50/50 shot at getting a 180, perhaps a little less. So, chance will play a part in the score you get. The goal is to minimize it as much as possible.

And don't worry too much about the last few points. I don't know about your exact GPA & target schools, so I can't answer with confidence, but the people in this thread saying 177 and 180 aren't really different are correct in most instances. While I do think the perfect improved my chances, for the vast majority of GPA/LSAT/school combinations there is not a whole lot of difference between 177 and 180. If you have a decent GPA (say ~3.7+) I don't think it will have any effect on your chances.
