Not sure I follow.

Yes, a 170 is the average test score.


That seems high.

After spending so much time diagramming every game over and over, it just becomes really easy to figure out what's actually going to matter. I actually have a bunch as pdfs on my Kindle, where I absolutely can't use a diagram, and doing them in my head is a really fun way to kill a plane ride.

That being said, I can't imagine trying to do LR without marking the page.

ETA: the really hard questions are the "if ___, how many possible orders are there?/___ could be in what number of positions" type. Those'd be great to have hypos written out for.

ETA 2: Really, don't do this unless you're bored at work and are trying to up the challenge of LG's. I diagrammed every game for the first year, then started to notice I was doing more in my head and decided to see if I could do a whole one in my head. Now, it's a masochistic habit I've developed.


How do you do the "how many possible orders are there" type of questions? With or without diagrams (for anyone who knows, not just chill).

170 may be close to median here for LSAT, although it's probably 168 or so. TLS is not a representative sample of the population at large, though.
