I had an 8 pt jump on test day but I only took 4 or 5pts total and didn't take any in the month before my test when I did a lot of my studying. It seems like for people who've done extensive prep, a jump on test day is pretty unusual. Far more people see small drops from their pt average.

Unfortunately I can answer now due to past LSAT results and I have performed much lower on the actual LSAT both times I took it. I find it impossible to replicate the pressure and nervousness you feel on the actual LSAT. I have found that those two factors are the arch nemesis of logic.

I say that because I had crazy focus/test adrenaline the day of the actual exam. I give it my all because I knew how critical it was and I left feeling very confident. We'll see though!

This guy created an account to brag about how will he thought he did. He will fit in nicely here.


Lol. First off, I'm female. And I've been lurking for quite some time. But thank you for your assumptions.
