Diag: 159
Actual: 162

Took the first 30 pts. I had significant anxiety the night before the test and didn't sleep well- not sure how much that affected things. My range on PTs was 159 to 172- with an average of 165.

Diagnostic: 143 (or somewhere around there)
Actual: 154 in June, 161 in October.
After June, I bought the Powerscore Bibles and 20 prep tests, worked through them, then I had a deer in the headlights moment on the Games section in October, probably cost me 9-10 points.

I scored a 156 on my first diagnostic (I went to one of those proctored ones at Kaplan). I only had about a month before my test date in Dec... so I didn't take a class and bought the Powerscore Logic Games Bible instead (best $60 ever spent). I scored a 163 on my actual LSAT but only went through the book about 2 weeks prior (it was during finals, etc). You should be fine as long as you are willing to put in 2-3 hours a day for a few weeks.

This. Those Powerscore Bibles are a great investment for the LSAT.

This is gonna sound ridiculous, but becuase of my senior thesis and finals I only studied for a week.

1st diag: 165
2nd: 166
3rd:170
4th:166

Actual Test: 164

All done in the span of 1 week.

It is ridiculous, but it would be more ridiculous if you were one of those moronic people who say they will not consider a retake. Pretty sure you hit mid 170s with a good amount of studying and a retake. You're not one of those people, right?

I never took a true diagnostic, but if I had it would have been around a 147. Two bibles and 30 PTs later, I scored a 168 on test day. My main regret is not doing more PTs.
