How much will a 155 hurt me if I retake for 170+

Postby chesterfan1230 » Tue Oct 25, 2011 1:08 pm

Studied for 3 months for the October exam. Normally I do -4 on LR1, -1 on LG, -3 on LR2, and -5 on RC which puts me around a 167-169. 9. Game day comes and I knock out a crappy 155 :(. got -11 on LR1, -3 on LG, -11 on LR3 and -11 on RC.

Took a PT exam last week and got a 170...

Anyways, I'm retaking 100% in December because 155 isn't my true potential at all. I have a 3.9 from a Top State University and Majored in Accounting. I was trying to hit CCN if I get 170 with my GPA. If I get a 170+ the second time around, how much will the 155 hurt me?

Schools I'm aiming for: T14 only

I don't think it will hurt you all too badly. From everything I have heard, if you have the numbers you're talking about you should be fine for at least one CCN.

I don't think it will hurt you too much. Nothing an addendum can't fix. Though schools that still average your LSAT score are most likely out of th question.

Also, if you're prepping to retake, I recommend reading a lot. And by a lot, I mean all the time. I was a business major as well and I think that the lack of reading assignments hurt me the first time I took the LSAT. Best of luck!

I'm retaking in December, and my plan is to take 2 PT's per week. My accuracy has been getting better along with time. Hopefully I can crush it in time!!!
