Same here. Registered for the closests place possible. GL to you.

I went to the bookstore as soon as I saw my score. It's clear that reading under pressure is my greatest weakness. I scored 11 below my best score weighted score. Honestly, I haven't scored this low since I started studying for the LSAT the first time around.

Things I'm reading to pick-up speed:

Capitalism & Freedom, Milton Friedman
Free to Choose, Milton Friedman
The Portable Karl Marx, Hot Karl

I think that, in a couple weeks when I'm a little more ready, i'm going to read the economist. honestly, I feel like I know everything I just sucked it up under pressure, mainly on the LG and RC.

I'm joining this pity party. Though we are not pitying, we are learning. We are going to fuck shit up in October. I just took the nook savings money and re registered my damn self for the test and purchased all of the precious powerscore bibles. Let the games begin. Now I have to tell my coach I'll be missing a race. Any advice on order of asking coach for letter of rec vs. telling him I'm missing a race? Keep in mind, this thing pays all of my school expenses.

I'm in the club.

LR- -1
LG- -1
LR- -3
RC- -8!!!!

For a 169. My PT average was 173/174. I don't know what happend :?

Oh, well. I'm trying to stay positive. It's not that bad of a score and we're all gonna rock it in October. I really hope the order of the October test is different (RC not last and no RC experimental section)

Obviously need to become more consistent in RC.

Does anyone know how/where I can get PT 1-7 and 39.

You should be fine, my freshman year I missed a game because I was the best man in my brothers wedding. Granted, at this time I wasn't playing much, but my coach was fine with it, and this was d1. You could try to get a sabbath observer test date or something like that though if it'll help.

I was doing fine on RC's until two days before the test, when I started bombing them. I have no idea how that happened. That used to be my best section.

On the real thing I also got the most number wrong on that section, although not by a lot compared to the other sections. I did worse than what I was expecting/aiming for but I probably won't be retaking.

This is a cool club.

My LR and RC (-2 on all three of those) were about at my average, though on the bad side of it. My -8 LG was about -4 worse than I like. Looking at the first game now, I have no idea why I freaked out- it looks really easy. I'm just gonna slow train on games in my free time for a while, then ramp back up. No full lengths till at least August... (168 from an average of 172, low 167, high 177) /self

Make sure to talk to your coach about it early. Then you can try to work something out. But i'm guessing your track? So missing one fall race in the middle of the season really doesn't mean much. I knew runners who would sit out just because they were tired in the fall.

But do try and do everything you can to make your meet if possible. That is one thing your coach will expect.

You're probably right;however, I'm not as good at this as you are so I may need them. I'm really excited to hear what you're saying about LR, as that section always dictates whether I go for a win or a loss. June 10...loss. I've also decided I don't need my free prep course. I'm going to just use their material, use the online lectures for waht I need, and use theonline resources which are the tits.

I'm still trying to decide if I should retake or not.. mostly because I don't have to go to law school next year.
I may wait till June 2011 when I don't have to worry about classes.
