I don't think its "making things up" to rephrapse he thinks "this felt better for the most part than [the highest PT hes ever got]" to "he thinks its better than hes ever done before"
And where does the OP mention random guessing? Whose the one making things up?
Wow. Let's hear from OP:
SgtL wrote:I walked in and before I knew it, I was through LR1 completing all the questions in time; something that was never a guarantee and usually didn't happen. I had some hiccups in games, but I made it through LG2 and 3 without guessing once [So, OP implies s/he may have guessed on LG4?], and pretty confident and in a good zone.
Stayed in the zone during the break, sat down and continued what I thought was a great test with getting through 25/26 LR, with one guess. Relatively confident of the accuracy of my answers aside from the last 3 or 4. At this point I distinctly remember feeling like I was having my best test ever and deducing my final section is RC, which I am generally -2/-5, once my worst section (thanks Voyager!) led me to imagine a 170 may not be unattainable. I turned to Section 5, but kept that same determination as previous...except.
Adios confidence. Hello LSAT Reading Comprehension. Brilliant test composition, it seems I wasn't the only one with an easier time in the other sections. Lull them to sleep and then douche it up with what I thought was the hardest reading comp section I'd encountered in 24 tests and countless practice sections.
I've bolded the evidence. Just for you.

His/her range is what's at issue. You seem to be operating under the delusion that OP's middle range is between 167-178, a monumental gain over his/her PTs. OP's stated PT average is in the mid 160's. Don't change facts.
I can't argue this any further. OP, if you end up not cancelling, I truly hope you got lucky. But if not, don't say I didn't warn you.
