167-180 is a pretty big range, lol...is that just your pessimism or do you honestly think you could've gotten a 167?
My score (well, like most I guess) will depend largely on the curve. I had to guess on 2 LG, I feel like -6 to -8 LR, and I feel like -8 to -10 RC (man do I hate RC)
So you're looking at -16 to -20. 5 of those were guesses, so maybe you're optimistic and hope you got two right...now you're looking at a range of -14 to -20. If the curve is something small like -10/-11, then even my most optimistic guess could be a 166 or 167 and my worst case scenario could actually be even worse than I thought...160 or 161
However, if we get another -14 (oh please, please, please God have a curve at or higher than this), then all of the sudden my best case scenario could even be a 170 or 169, and my worst case scenario is probably a 164-165
Can we all say a quick prayer hoping for the highest curve in LSAT history? It's worth a shot. I'm about to go to sleep and I'm gonna try it out. Feel free to join in with me, TLS...it can only help us.
tl;dr I am very bad at predicting my score on the LSAT.
So, here's how my story goes. I think I got a -0 on LG. It's definitely my best section I think I was -0 on 90% of my PTs. Finished that section with like 7 minutes to spare. Checked all my answers out, looked good. LR felt really good. I usually get about -3/-4 combined by missing a tough one or making a dumb mistake, but I never checked answers with the extra time during PTs for some reason. Ended up finishing both LRs before the 5-minute warning, went back, and checked about 8-10 questions total. Caught 1 dumb mistake and changed a few answers. I've "figured out" most of those questions "in my head" (if you catch my drift, which you probably don't but irrelevant. Knockglock might get it.) continuing on... and I am fairly certain all of them are right. So I'm starting to feel great about LR. RC is normally my worst section, at around -4/-5. I finished right on time. Didn't have to speed up really, or take guesses. Rushed the last question a little, but felt good. My honest prediction was 173 on a -10 curve. Probably -4 on RC and -3 combined LR, with -0 LG. I don't really see a sub-170 and that 167 number is definitely the pessimist in me speaking. However, I could have blown the RC up. I do that, albeit very rarely. Once in a while I also kill an RC section and I feel like my LRs could be perfect at this point. That's where the 180 comes from. I'd say I'm actually about 170-175 depending on the curve. At least I'm going to keep telling myself that.
