Oct 2011 LSAT thread

Postby boalthopeful » Mon Sep 26, 2011 12:57 pm

Thought I'd get a thread going so people could talk about what they are doing the week before and any advice/tips people may have for test day


I do admittedly have a selfish reason too -- I peaked my score at about 174 two weeks ago, and ever since then, I've been overthinking, scoring in the 170 range, and most recently, a 168. I'm pretty nervous and frustrated about the whole thing and would appreciate any advice people may have for what I should be doing this week

Thanks!

I'm not sure you've peaked and then dropped down (I mean, I don't think you should think of it that way)- that is within normal fluctuation. I'm in a similar boat- was averaging a 172 before this week, highest 175, and due to some drama/burnout got two 167s (thurs and sunday). I think the key is just not letting it get to you so much... there is a big psychological difference between a 170 and a 168, but NOT a big score difference... it's more likely that you normally have one or two "tough" sections where you score lower and then make up for that in more successful ones, but on your lower score tests you just didn't have those few really good sections to help your score out.
