-161 cold diagnostic (same story as kabuo--tried to do the LG's in my head, got about 8 right)
-169 on 12/09 LSAT (didn't prep enough, bombed LG just like i did on the diagnostic)
~176 average on last few PT's. LGB has helped me a ton and is probably responsible for an extra 4-5 points on a given PT.

Anyone who takes a purely cold diag and scores above a 150 is impressive. Above 155, I'm amazed. In the 160s, Lord have mercy.

When I took my first diag, I had never seen any portion of an LSAT. I had absolutely NO IDEA what kind of questions would be on there and also was clueless about the importance of time management.


My first cold diag was a 144. Now I'm in the 160s, but only after months of hard studying.

I know how you felt. The first time I took it I didn't even know what a logic game was. Timing was a HUGE issue and the logic reasoning questions had me feeling completely overwhelmed. With practice I'm getting there though. How long did it take you before you hit the 160s?

You should definitely be able to hit the high 150s to low 160s after constant studying for two to three months. It's completely possible, but it takes work. Pinpoint your weaknesses and work on them.
