Looks like Saturday is 100 days away from the June test.
100 days to a 180?
I will be starting my prep on Saturday as well. Retaking a 170, shooting for 174+...
Would be willing to join and update in this thread for studying/motivation
I'd like that, man. Chester, Alex, Jeffort, Tiago, Sublime, and Cali played such a big role in motivating me - I don't think I could have done - what little I did - without them.
I am sitting between 3.9-4.0 and 166-168.
With several 170's under the belt and 3 months of intelligent, slow and steady studying (no stressing about studying enough and no killing myself) - there is no doubt that I could walk into June with a 176+ average in my last 10 PT's.
If I am able to get to that point, then I will position myself for a score that won't hold me back from pursuing a legal education at my desired school.
Thank you for mentioning me. I've been following your thread from day one and hoping the best for you.
Keep up the motivation. You have a near perfect GPA as well as a respectable LSAT score already in your pocket.
Don't let the rejection from whatever CCN school get you down. Nobody, even with perfect numbers and great soft factors gets accepted to every law school they apply to.
I'm not sure what your current plans are since you are in the application cycle and thinking about taking the LSAT again, which could mean you are going to push off to next cycle or try to boost things in this application cycle by taking the test again in June.
As I said before, you are one of the most motivated LSAT test takers I've encountered on the discussion forums in many years. That is a very good thing, especially given the workload you will have to manage once in law school to hit grades that will rank you in the top of your class.
Shoot me a PM with additional details that you may not want to post publicly as things happen if you want additional guidance while you navigate this cycle. I'll give you my gmail address I use to talk to students and even a phone# I have just for LSAT and law school students.
I really want you to achieve your goals and believe you are smart and motivated enough to do so based on your posts here.
