This is my first time ever breaking 170, so I am extremely happy. I really love this feeling and hope I can use this as motivation.


Yay!!! Good work. Pretty balanced breakdown, so maybe just keep PTing? Drill some LR? Either way, looks like you're in good shape heading into the final push for Dec!

Just entered my PT into LSATQA, turns out I was a little hasty in my correcting, I went -3 in every section for a 170. Still, I am very happy to see some improvement. I am going to take PT 67 on Saturday. I also have Superprep C that I haven't taken, and I think PT 42 and 43 are largely untouched.

I am going to mix drilling sections and PTing. I think people on here are right that, even though I have seen problems before, the most important thing is understanding the mechanics and patterns of correct answers.

Thanks for the encouragement!

0-3 after work, currently more 0 than 3 :oops: Weekends, as much as possible until my brain starts dribbling out my ear.

This just confirms to me that this test was an outlier. Had I scored a 170 then I could have assumed that maybe it was conditions, score inflation or something else. PT 67 was a perfect LG/LR storm for my skill set. I got to zones too late (5 minutes left) If I had time I would have gotten them all right. I also somehow mixed up a rule on the first game as well fucking it over.

Furthermore, with regards to LR/RC out of the 11 I got wrong, 6 of them are ones I got wrong in Oct as well.


This is either really good news because it means that it was an outlier and we can expect better or terrible news because it could possibly signify a new LSAT trend.

Either way, I think I'm gambling on the first. I'm retaking this test Saturday morning so we'll see if my results match up with yours!

Sounds like those 6 repeats are a good opportunity to identity specific problem types to review at least. Consistency in your wrong answers can make for very productive studying.

I thought about that but I went -11 on LR/RC combined and -11 on LG alone. it seems that I should go back to drilling games, specifically the types of the first one and the last one...just in case this is a trend.

If I had went -14 in October, It would be an under performance, but I wouldnt be retaking.


If we got unlucky in October, that means we'll get lucky in December, right? That sounds logical.

Just took PT June 2007 (not fresh, but it's been quite while?)

163

-16

LG: -0
RC (experimental PT 42..I sort of remembered the passages): -3
LR: -5
LR: -3
RC: -8

Brutal curve; Didn't help that I bombed RC. I think it has to do partially with timing but I just need to drill RC more and pick out the common wrong answer trends.

Back to the RC and LR grind.

We are going over a bunch of RC passages from the Cambridge bundle on Sunday at 11AM PST. Click back a few pages for details.

Well I work 9 hours per day, add in an hour front and back for commute.

So trying to do 3 hours per day when not testing. 5 hours when testing/including test.

Anymore would be *brainmelt*

It's okay. My brother-in-law's mom is a nurse. She laughs too. One time she brought me a lancet from work to show me how they lock in place after a single use. Too bad they don't have those for needles yet. Or, do they?
