June or October?

Postby Al Baba » Fri Apr 27, 2012 9:44 pm

I'm currently a Junior looking to apply to law schools in the fall. I was initially planning on taking the June exam, but I recently realized that I needed to take a 2 week course at my college in the last two weeks of May to graduate on time. Moreover, I'm also going to be working in that same time period. I have not really been studying for the exam til now, either.

I took a practice exam, cold, administered by Kaplan under actual test conditions back in Feburary and got a 171. The only section I struggled with was the game section. My GPA is on the lower end of good for the schools I'm looking to apply to (probably the bottom half of the T-14) so I need a good score to help me out.

So my question is this: Do y'all think a month of not-terribly-devoted study is enough time to get the games section on lock or would I be better off studying longer and waiting til October? And then having to deal with taking the exam in the middle of semester?

Thanks.

Work on the game section, wait till October, bang out a 180.

Just make sure you know whats going on in the test. I'd probably take 5-10 PTs under timed conditions if I were in your shoes, which are great shoes btw.

Why not just focus on the games and PTs for a month, take June... and you can always retake in October. That's a super high diagnostic... I think you can do it by June. And if not, I dont think a retake will hurt.

Plus June lets you get apps in right when they open.
