Why don't you just take a newer (lets say, 50 and higher) and see what you get. Also, I'm fairly certain that a score you get on a test that you've previously taken is not indicative of what you should expect on the LSAT, since you will have no degree of exposure like that on test day. I could be wrong about this, though. Its certainly good to retake tests, but I think its more for reinforcing concepts you might have missed out on the first time, and it seems like it wouldn't be an accurate representation of your average score.

Just my .02

I am going to take a new test tomorrow. We'll see if my confidence is misplaced :o



But until you grade your test tomorrow, assume your confidence is legitimate.

Fuckin' placebos man.

Take the june 07 exam and see if your suspicions are valid.

HAH thanks... there was an LSAT question about placebos :|


PT7? Or are placebos a recurring theme :3

I think it was PT7... nonetheless, I took PT50 (riddled basins of attraction :( ), -13 curved to a 167. Shiet. That's pretty good for me still given I got -21 in Dec... still twice as many wrong as PT30 (but 100% on LG. silver lining I guess). I will take June 07 but I am pretty familiar with that test already...



At least you know what you need to focus on, good to know you got one section down with confidence.
