You will still have a 3rd shot if it doesn't go well. So you shouldn't be too worried about taking it. Of course it all really just comes down to do you think you have a realistic chance of beating 169. If the answer is no then push to Feb. Don't think anyone can give you any more specific advice than that.

I think having a 2 month break and taking the test will actually be a good thing. I will do some (minor) prep about 2 weeks out. That is, taking a few PTs. Other than that, I don't really care. If I can't get a 163 or higher AND a scholly, I'm not going.

#1 choice is actually NU jd/MBA which doesn't require LSAT, but I want to have options in case I don't get into that program. Fuck it, I'll just take it unless I feel like shit the day of and cancel. Not ideal, but I think do-able. Thanksgiving will give me a few days off of work to get some hardcore studying in. And when I get that 170+ I'll write a guide called "Dont be a pussy: Hawk's guide to getting a 17X while working 90 hours a week"

Took PT 54 today. Had done the games section already, but none of the LR or RC.

RC: -1
LR: -0
LG: -0
LR: -2

Score: 179

This is my highest score ever! The LG was a re-do as I said, but I actually got -0 the first time I took it as well so I'm feeling really good :]

Did I say 2 weeks out? I meant never.

You retaking? I heard you got like a 154 or something after PTing high 150s.

Yeah I think you should go for it. If you feel terrible the night before/morning of you can cancel it without it counting as one of your three tries. There's absolutely no point in canceling now, as canceling two weeks from now will have the exact same affect. Might as well wait to see how you feel.

Thanks! Granted, I took it at noon and it probably wouldn't have gone as well if I'd taken it early in the morning because my sleep schedule is still on the fritz. But I think I'm getting there.

That was June, October was high 150s, low 160s and a 152...I cried a lot that night. But I got a 166 the other day so if I stick to my pattern I should wind up with a 150.

Fuck lol I dont know what I would do if I scored a 152. I scored a 160 and feel like a failure, and am honestly considering not going because of it.

I missed 11 on RC, so I just feel like there isn't a way for me to better my score.

Dude, not here, that shit is uncalled for.


Yeah. Whether you started at 130 or 170, we are just trying to get better and provide some comradery from our mutual experiences with the LSAT. No need for those comments.

Note to self: stop complaining about cushy 40-hour-a-week gig.

But srsly, you will kick ass. And make sure to stuff yourself full of beer, brats, custard, and butter burgers while you're in Milwaukee :) If I wasn't 45 min away I'd offer to pretend to be a long-lost-cousin so you could ditch work to see the city.

Well I may've bombed the test but at least I'm attempting to do better instead of blowing the whole thing off, I can come up with a new LR and LG strategy in a month, RC not so much...and even with a 152 even I managed better than -11 on RC.
