Took PT 20 yesterday, the only thing not legit about it was for the several sections that I finished with time to spare I just went on to the next one.

175!

How much easiser are these early PT's though? Obviously I did them before, but broken up and when first learning how to LSAT (yes its a verb) so while somewhat remembering the questions is of course helping me, is the overall difficutly still good enough so that I can be very freaking happy with my 175 this far out? lol

either way im happy so haters keep off lol

Doing worse then when I left off. Struggled my way through Velocity's Flaw section today. I don't feel like anywhere near where I was a few months ago... TLS I am frustrated.

Don't get frustrated. Take a mini-break and a deep breath. You've got this, Miller.

Can't wait to see who e-mails me with a 170+.

Its going to be surreal.

Only working part-time this summer, leaving with me with a lot of unstructured time.
It's so hard to get back into the swing of things. I took a two hour nap today after
work, ate dinner, and now am sitting here dreading reading.

I think the l-thenaine/caffeine combos are coming out tomorrow morning.

Don't feel bad. Yesterday, I went for a run, ate, watched two episodes of Suits and took a 2hour nap. I had to force myself to get those three hours of prep in. And I thought I was on a role two after this weekend, lol.

My boyfriend thought it would be a good joke to send me an ecard as motivation this morning. It was a black screen with my old LSAT score on it and We Fall Down, by Donnie McClurkin playing in the background. Just rude.

Too bad UCI doesn't give out free rides as much as when they first opened. If they did, I'd say go, they'll be ranked in the twenties in this coming decade.

You have a higher GPA and a higher score, thus you aren't worth as many laughs when they send the mocking email. ;)

It was ACTUALLY a last chance e-mail for this cycle from Wake Forest with a fee waiver. I have a competitive GPA and LSAT for them so stop pissing on my party. When my highest was a 153, I couldn't have even thought about a tier one school.

Hi all, retaking this Oct after getting 160 last year. I am doing great in LR and RC, but having a lot of trouble with LG (it's what killed me last time around). I get the games right, but cannot finish 4 of them. I barely finish the 4th one, hence the huge point drop.

I am going through the powerscore games bible, but wanted to check if anybody had any recommendations regarding LG prep. I have read velocity is really good and am considering purchasing the LG section (I took testmasters so with the discount is not so bad).

Any other ideas on how to improve speed would be greatly appreciated.

This work, gym, study rinse repeat 5-7 days a week is tiring, but surprisingly I look forward to studying. I'm gonna make this test my bi***.

Thanks in advance for all the responses 8)

Hey everyone, checking in.

I'm going to be retaking my 170 from the February test. 168 was my diagnostic, so as you can probably tell, my reason for retaking is I didn't study much the first time. Aiming for a 175+, and going to begin seriously prepping once August hits.

Best of luck to everyone else in this thread.

Her and Melanie Cronin.
I want to e-mail them back and see how much they'll up my moving costs and increase my scholarships - I'm going to be very persistent that I get
both the iPad 3 and the moving expenses.

The "hey you didn't respond to my last email" one was the best. I honesty feel bad for some of these schools. They have to be hurting for students/$
