As you can see March and April blow. I did this for two reasons, first off, all of my classes revolve around two tests, one in late February and one in early May, so I need to cram LSAT prep in when I can. Second, I made the executive decision to end drilling, and use everything that remains as a sixth section in April, May, haven't totaled it yet, but it should get pretty close to working (I'm going to just use RC as my fifth section until I would bet my first born on a -0). Also the above schedule is not strict in the slightest way, I think of it more as a guideline, I want to do so many tests in these months so that I can relax during late May, and honestly I think it's going to be necessary to take a week off in May so you don't go insane.

I'd be happy to make changes for good reasons, this is basically a suggestion, and I think I could stick to it.

i'm good to go for that (though not this weekend) because i'm going out with lady armed and her coworkers


No worries. If you can make it for most Saturdays at 8PM that's cool (besides, you're already destroying LSATs). :)

Any votes for Thursday or Friday at the same time? Majority of times the space is used for online tutoring early during the week so I figure we will have more available slots later in the week. I'll check with Manhattan.


I'm usually pretty flexible, if you let me know what's open I'll let you know what I can do. Thanks again for doing this.

Looks good. I might cram the Feb tests into either the first week of June or just the final week of February. Also might skip some of your spring break tests in favor of taking them early June. I want to maintain PT momentum up to the day of the test.

In my opinion April is by far the most important month of prep. Ideally you would like to see increases in your score in Februrary and March, then in April begin to score at your desired score, and continue to score at that level or higher in May. Now if we assume that your desired score is a 175+, don't hate me people, it's an example, you will need to be able to kill the easy problems, and recognize the usual signs on the tough ones. For this to be the case, you would need to at that point in April to possess more than a solid grasp of everything. Literally. Basically, in April you should begin to narrow your scope, from say LR to only parallel flaws, or from RC to only inference questions, likewise from LG to only 3D ordering/grouping hybrids.

I guess this doesn't answer your exact question, but I'm going to assume you knew it was a joke.

I totally agree here. I have a tall order ahead for February/March. I am literally cutting the TV off and breathing/eating this thing. Thanks for the revised schedule!

How are you (and others - feel free to jump in on this, guys) evaluating your readiness for timed PTs?

I'm thinking when I'm doing 175+ untimed. I just took PT38 untimed and got 171, but that could be a fluke because it's the first complete PT I've taken. I'm only about halfway through LGB and haven't started LRB yet, so I'm aiming to get these done in the next two weeks.

Honestly I think review dates will be a game time decision. Not this game, but after the corresponding PT.

Drilling assumption tomorrow. Got through the first few chapters of MLSAT and really felt like I internalized it this time. On my last run I was averaging -2 per LR section on PTs. On game day I went -1, -5, so LR ended up being a major weakness (along with -5 LG -- it was a bloodbath).

Off topic, but as a lifelong Baltimorean.... tonight is a good night.
