Lots of people can do it if they put in the work and study smart.


How did you study smart if you're an idiot?

You're probably smarter than you think.

Obviously you didn't read my post history.

I scored a paltry 1230/1600 on the SAT(though it was with limited studying). I'm having this philosophical argument with myself as to whether I can study my way up to a 170 or that there is a certain ceiling for me that's a below a 170. I know that it may be illogical to think about this even before I've taken an LSAT diagnostic but I can't help but continue pondering this. Is there such a thing as innate intelligence? Can I consume myself with reading material to improve my ability to score higher on reading comprehension? Will taking classes on logic improve my innate ability to reason? Discus :mrgreen:

I'm surprised people haven't jumped on the bolded part more. You don't know anything right now, so there's no point in even talking about it. Worry less, study more, score higher.
