I would like to request your opinions, please. Okay, disclosure time which I am embarrassed to admit, but since I am asking for your honest opinion, least I can do is be honest too. Here goes...I have taken the LSAT twice. Both times involved Kaplan LSAT classroom course and tutoring. I scored a 139 and 146, respectively. I am now taking a Powerscore (PS) LSAT classroom course and have registered for the Oct 2011 LSAT. I have taken two practice tests during PS course and scored an abysmal 142 and 141, respectively. I do the homework, attend the classes religiously and study every night (I work full time). I'm still having problems mostly with logical reasoning (LR) (assumption, flaw, strengthen/weaken). Should I invest in the PS LR Bible, or try another guide like Manhattan LR guide? I am putting in all this effort and it is so frustrating that I can't even break 150 on the LSAT. Any advice? Please be kind...I know I'm not the sharpest tool in the bunch, but I do have a Master's degree and have the discipline for law school if I can just get in.
You are probably just studying wrong. You are using 140 strategies and practicing with them so you're going to keep getting a 140. It's really a bad thing you spent your money on Kaplan, because I've heard it's useless. You need private tutoring. I took Nicholas Hudson in Manhttan through Power Score. If you want to go to a T14 you need someone that can focus on what YOU need to work on and the strategies YOU need to learn. If you don't want to go to a T14 please please don't be a lawyer, do something else. You will NOT get a job that allows you to pay off your debt and if you will, Biglaw if NO FUN, you will regret such a life decision. There are so so many careers, don't get into this one because you feel like you have no other choice.
BTW I have scored as low as 140 and am now scoring 170 so it can be done.
