preparing for the February LSAT

Postby mchuynh » Sun Dec 12, 2010 12:49 am

I bombed the LG section for the December LSAT, so i was wondering can anyone give me some advice on how to prepare for the February one?

I took testmasters and did almost all of the practice exams (i saved two) and finished most of the homework. Should i just review what I did wrong and save the two practice exams for later? Or should I just retake practice exams? Thanks!

take a break for at least 2 weeks. You will be burnt out. Relax. dont cancel the test. ( if you dont then you can use the disclosed test to see which problem types you need help with/ section strategy etc- if you cancel you cant do this). Start reviewing your notes, then drill your weak areas ( where you missed questions). then work on more prep tests.

Will we get our scored back in time to reapply for the March 1 dead lines?

yesm, but its going to be very late in the cycle. You may get a lot more WL and rejections, and less scholarship offers than if you wait until the fall and apply.

I won't be applying to any of the top 50 law schools, looking more at the bottom feeders 55-85ish haha. Does this matter?

not in the sense that a lot of schools will be filled, and the competition for the last few seats will be more intense. As for the question about cancelling. if thats your range, im sure they will just look at your best score ( I hope so, i have a really big gap between my 2 tests and I applied to some schools in that range)

Best of luck!
