7 Months to a 180

Postby lawyerdude » Mon Nov 14, 2011 2:42 pm

I was originally going to take the December 2011 LSAT, but have decided to postpone it because my preptest scores were inadequate for my goal schools. :lol: Hopefully, now that I'm taking it in June 2012, I'll be adequately prepared and ready to get that 180. My backup is the October 2012 administration.

Background info: lower junior, 3.8 GPA. I'll be studying in China next semester, so my LSAT prep will be a little unique. Thus far, my highest preptest score has been a 160. I have no trouble with reading comp, but struggle with LR and LG.

More to come; this will be my journal of sorts as I prepare.

Good for you; you can definitely do it.

I would only recommend taking all 65 PT's (timed and 5 sections), in the next 7 months, signing up for Velocity, and never going a couple of days without making some progress. I think your best shot is truly learning the test, deeply; you need to understand the test on such a level that you'd be a fantastic LSAT tutor. With LG, I recommend buying Cambridge's LG by type, so you can drill simple ordering, then relative ordering, etc. I started out missing ~12 on games and now a -1 is disappointing. Practice, practice, practice and you'll be a guaranteed -0.

I took my first 5 section PT - 52 days ago - and got a 163. I have a 169.33 average over my last 6 PT's, and 3 of them were in the 170's. I can't wait to read how you got your 180, eight months from now.

Best of luck!
