deiding to change test date to Feb11, 2012

Postby naillsat » Sun Nov 06, 2011 6:21 pm

yesterday i took pt 64 (october 2011), and it was my first serious pt with strict timing and all five sections. The results are disappointing: -20 missing in the two LR, -2 in LG, -6 in RC. although i have done quite a lot of LR drilling, i think i am still doing it poorly. RC lg both could be better. i dont think i can make significant improvement before December 3 LSAT.

Are you asking a question or just keeping us all informed?

Were you planning for December? If so, you still have a month left... take a PT every day and review thoroughly. See if your scores don't improve after ~30 practice tests.

I would say if you're applying next cycle (for the fall of '13) I would wait until Feb. If you're trying to apply this cycle, Feb would really hurt you since it's so late, but bombing December would hurt you too. I would study the powerscore LR bible, drill and review a bunch, then take a practice test in a couple weeks and see where you stand.

not this.

Wait until at least February. The fact that you've gone -2 on lg and -6 on rc tells me that you likely have the ability to score much much better in LR. Get the LR bible, get the manhattan lr guide, and get to work.
