Should I take the June LSAT?

Postby Hitherehowdoyoudo » Thu Apr 19, 2012 1:11 am

I posted this yesterday in the main thread, but I guess I probably should have posted it here. To the Mods sorry for the double post, I can't figure out how to delete the other one.

Background: I was preparing to take the fall LSAT in 2010 by taking a Testmasters class, but with about a month left to go, I ended up not registering as I was getting about a 163 on my top tests and my goal was to get 170+. I'm contemplating taking the June test but haven't practiced since the fall of 2010, I just took the practice test on the official LSAT site to see where I was at and got about a 160 (I ran out of time on the logic games and including the answers I did after time ran out I got a 165). I am kind of pleasantly surprised by this score, but not sure how much it will improve in the two month span.

Reasons to take it: Got a pretty good score, have a job where I can essentially study about two hours at work and get home at 4:15ish everyday, so plenty of time to study, but this job only lasts until July so I might be having more strenuous hours come then. The fact that if I had improved my logic games gives me hope as that was extremely rusty so I see that as easiest to improve.

Reasons not to take it: I know the rule of thumb is 3 months prep (I only have about two months at this point). Will I be able to improve my score by ten points in that amount of time?
This seems trivial but I will be out of town for ten days starting next week, I will have plenty of time to study and can bring materials with me BUT I'm living overseas right now, so it might end up not getting here in time.

What are your practice tests looking like? What is your weakest section? Give us more info and maybe someone can help you out/give you advice

Plan on taking June. Study as much as you can for it. You can change the date of the test until May 20th. See how you are feeling then.

My weakest section was the reading comp (-7) then on the logic games I had -7 (-4 with unlimited time) the other two I had -2 and -3
