157, 160, ????

I'd take a 163+ and be perfectly happy

Why? Everyone has different expectations. And I really need a 170+ to make sure I get into top 5 and have a decent shot at top 3.

I don't think it was your expectation that's a turn-off... it's the fact that you said "ewww" to put down someone else. Please keep those negative energy thoughts to yourself.

With that said, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and predict 171 as well, but am really hoping for 173+

Oh sorry I meant the eww for me not him.. why would I say eww to him or his expectations? Expecting a 170+ when I have a feeling it won't happen is ew.

No offense taken. I just can't deliver on test day. I'm more than capable of upper 160s. probably ceiling at 170. I just want to improve.

Also, part of my issue in confidence is that I could have sworn I had a 166 or 167 on the last test. Came back a 160 :|

Yea that happens to everyone. Sometimes I think I did poorly on a PT but get high 160s. Then I think I did well but get low 160s. The 171 and 172 that I got on the PTs I didn't think I did particularly well after I finished. It's weird. The trick it to learn the tricks of each section. LR is just learning how the questions are written and you get to a point where you can eliminate answers based on the way they're written and can even get the right answer and know it's 100% right without even knowing how it completely affects the stimulus. The games is just practice. People spend too much time on the set up worrying about inferences. Trick is to just spend ~2.5 minutes on reading and setting up and then moving on to the questions. RC... I dunno that one. I just read and answer the questions. Making too many markings and underlining too much can mess you up so limit it to only weird words you see that you normally don't see or main point sentences.. Once you learn the tricks to every section, it's like doing basic math... like 4+6 = ?

Seriously, then I love his response when I told him that it was a mean thing to say.

I wasn't offended. I realize 163 is chump shit compared to most people here.

I have some extremely close big law connections though. A T-14 isn't really a necessity for me to get biglaw. It'd be nice for the prestige, but I'll be fine :)

For some reason 169 keeps popping into my head. 2 point improvement might help me off some waitlists, but if it's higher I'll probably reapply next cycle.

Lol I bet your LSAT score is barely 167. That's why you're mad when you saw me expecting/aiming at 170+.

This is getting good. My money is on Anteater over RR, and my money is on me out of the lot to smoke both of you fools!

Just kidding 180's for everyone!

But honestly RR that "180. Beat it." was a major Herp Derp response. He wasn't saying to name any score and he would beat it, he was saying name any amount of money that he beats your score.
