Taking LSAT 3rd time

Postby lawbie » Wed Mar 02, 2011 10:15 pm

first score- 164 (FREAKED out during the test, should have cancelled)
second score- 166 (didn't study as much as first time, focused on not freaking out)

thinking maybe 3rd times a charm in terms of finally combining studying and calming down during the actual test. was scoring 170-174... is this just too ridiculous to attempt?

No, they give you three tries in 2 years for a reason. However, if you retake for the third time, you should stop playing fuckaround. With law school scholarships and debt on the line, we're talking thousands of $ here, so don't hold back and buy all the books/preptests you can. In a non-pressure practice environment, you should burn through those tests and get used to having time at the end to fix the hard ones. You seem like you're right there, and a 175 is just a matter of correcting a few habits.
