Thanks everyone! I'm going to prep on my own, and I'm also doing the virtual Powerscore class. Obviously I'm aiming for a 180 but I'd be happy with anything in the 170s!

i was completely hungover (probably still drunk, lol college right?), took the test cold, got a 176. i bought the powerscore LG bible and just read the front and back covers, increased my score to a 179. i would have had a 180 for sure but i fell asleep for like 20 min of the logic games section and didn't have time to double check all of my answers. it's no big deal.

146 on cold practice test. Ended up with a 163. Went to UVa as a reverse splitter. So all my time/money/tears worrying about my poor LSAT was all in vain.

164. I wasn't sure whether we could write on the test itself, so I did the logic games in my head. I ended up getting a 172 on the actual test.
If my LSAT score indicates how well I will do in law school, did the month I spent preparing for the test make me a better student?

I got a 166 on my diagnostic last week. I didn't get to the last three questions in the Analytical Reasoning section because I ran out of time, and the rest of my wrong answers were spread out almost equally (3,3,4) among the other three sections. I'm aiming high and will soon start prepping hard, we'll see what happens later in the year.

yeah...that wasn't supposed to be a flame, obviously, as it is overly ridiculous. it was simply an agreement with:

I guess next time I'll have to spell it out for those not as subtly inclined.

Diagnostic: 154

After 2 months of studying I ranged from 158-162 in PTs

LSAT 1: 156

Decided to retake, but didn't do a damn thing to prep

LSAT 2: 163

Go figure.

165 diagnostic, studied and brought my PT range up to 173-178 but bombed October and ended up with a 168. Waiting on Feb results now and hoping for 172+!

It's reflective of what kind of law student you will be, you will work hard to do well, hopefully :mrgreen:

I can't imagine ever getting a 160 on a diagnostic :lol: it took me a month to get into the 160s and i had to become a faster reader to get there

155. I was going through caffeine withdrawal during the test (essentially a migraine) and considered just walking out, but I somehow finished. I couldn't focus worth shit, so I'm not sure how indicative it was of my actual ability w/o any prep. I ended up with a 175.

One of my good friends got a 171 on his diagnostic, then proceeded to score lower on the actual test. It's all about how hard you work.

Ended up with a 167 with about 10 weeks of moderate (6 hours a week) studying.

teach me, master.

a low GPA + 163 is enough to get into UVA? I'd expect a low GPA & a 170+ to UVA.
