October or....

Postby fosterp » Tue Sep 07, 2010 8:05 am

I am currently starting my junior year in UG and decided I wanted to start studying for the lsat this summer since I had a lot of free time. Well two and a half months have passed and I am a bit shy of my goal of 170+. I haven't done "too" many full PTs but the ones I have taken average at about 166-168. Seeing a lot of "expect your score to drop 5 points on real thing" posts has sort of lead me to believe hitting my goal is going to take a lot of luck. And given the school I am aiming for averages scores, do you all think it would be a better idea to just wait and take it later? I have this entire year up until october2011 to take it, though the thing I am worried about is running out of new material. I've already gone through most of the 10 test books, and I have just started on the 12 most recent PTs.

Anyone stretched their study time much farther and had good results?

I plan on taking in October, if you prepared properly I seriously doubt you should expect a "5 point drop" you realize how much of a variance that. Take the test when you are best prepared, there is no magic answer to such a subjective question.

If you think more preparation will help, take it later. Basically, if you're not ready don't take the test.

Take it in December if you're not ready now then you have June for a retake if necessary while still being able to submit apps right away in September. Good luck!
