How thoroughly did you review your PTs? Did you notice any patterns on the Qs you were getting wrong? Averaging 172 means you averaged 9 questions wrong. Were they predominately in LG?

I don't think remembering questions will be much of a problem. There's +3000 LR questions to study from, +250 RC/LG passages/games.

Uhhm, to go from having already scored 165 (congrats, that's a good score) to scoring 170+ you are going to need to be in 100% LSAT mode for the last 3 weeks leading up to the October 1st test. Being pretty much 100% 24/7 focused mainly on the LSAT during the lead up weeks is typically a requirement to score 170+ on test day. Going into that dedicated solitary LSAT practice mode right after getting married (it means ignoring your spouse for the 3 weeks right after you get hitched) is a great formula for a quickie divorce, especially if you are the guy and would be ignoring your new bride during the honeymoon phase and depriving you and her of that precious time together.

At a minimum, whether you are the guy or the girl, there will be arguments where your spouse says things like "You love the LSAT more than you love me!??!!?" while wanting and trying to spend quality time with you.

insanely useful. I have the same question regarding re-using PTs and those are the answers that I've been searching for. thanks!

also to the OP, really bad timing, you should really dedicate as much time as you can during this period to your significant other. you want to take the LSAT when there is little distraction going on in your life.

I'd definitely take a look at Stratus. I had gone through basically everything and then went to them to bump my mid 160s average to a mid 170s. I had a lot of success with them, and you should for sure check them out.
