Postby paulshortys10 » Fri Sep 03, 2010 7:05 pm

1.who here uses a highlighter for the RC section? Why?
2.what's the most PTs you've taken in 1 day?
3.if you knew you would score higher on the lsat in Dec, would u postpone it? Even if its a 3 point increase than you would have gotten in oct, but obviously you send apps lates.

1. No. Because it takes valuable time to switch between underlining/highlighting and I like to circle/underline not just highlight.

2. 1.

3. Depends. But most likely yes.

My answer exactly.

Planned on taking in Oct., but fell way behind on studying (I didn't realize until about a month and a half ago how important a difference the Oct vs Dec test was, but shit happens). Hard to say exactly what score I'd get in Oct vs. Dec, but I'm planning on at least a 4 point boost (166 v 170). I've got my reasons for not just waiting an extra year for law school (unless I do horrific on test day), but you should make sure its worth it to you as well, since the consequences are 1) schools that you are on the line for you will more likely get rejected, and 2) schools you do get accepted to will offer you substantially less money than you could get.

1. No. I like to underline. I don't use highlighters ever while studying anything, I don't find them useful. Also, switching between pencil and highlighter? With any luck I'd be so stressed doing the test I'd try to bubble something in using my highlighter, lol.

2. Um, 1. I've done 1 PT + sections of other PTs, but never a full 5 section PT and then another full 5 section PT.

3. It depends. If I got a 177 in October, it might be worth it just to brag and say I scored 180 on the LSAT. But the school I'm particularly interested in employs a rolling admissions type of process, and accepts the majority of people between January and February. They're also (apparently) shit at administration, so you better get those apps in early or you risk getting lost in the shuffle. Then again, if the difference was between 157 and a 160, maybe.

But see, I don't think there's a whole much more left to learn between now and December - I think I'd get frustrated with the length of the process and stop studying as hard. I'm really quite ready to get going with this, and I don't think there would be an appreciable difference for me in terms of score. If you're ready, take in October. If you're not, you're not ready, so take in December.
