Stuck in 160s!

Postby lennonist » Thu Aug 26, 2010 4:11 pm

My story:

Back in college, took a diag. lsat and got a 144. Got depressed. Took a prep course. Stayed in the 150s. Got depressed. Cancelled my score. Studied on my own. Got up to 168 on practice diags earlier this May. Cancelled the June test (misread the mulches LG). Currently doing most of the 90s tests (PT 7 onwards). Got a 170 and a 172 last week (PT 7, PT 11), yet feeling it was not representative of today's tests. Then I had a family fight/drama and as a result I screwed up my mental state and got a 163 and a 167 (which was the same raw score as the 170, -15 wrong).

The plan: doing a PT each day, with the hope of forgetting all the PTs from 2000s i've taken earlier, so by the time I need to re-take them in mid-late September, they will appear 'new'. Also, plan to get a tutor if in the next 10 PTs I fail to land in the 170s most of the time.

I welcome any advice, suggestions on how to study, and most importantly - how to get my arse out of the 160s!

Thank you! :D

The title of this thread makes it seem would be one of those "How to get a 180" articles.

True, I changed it since it was a bit misleading.
