Thanks, although I don't meet your sufficient condition. I've gotten nasty at ordering games mainly because I started studying last year, slowly. And you'll hit five, just keep at it.


what happened to watching the game lol

Ha caught me, and I am, in my defense, when I sit down, my hand seems to find my phone, and when it finds my phone, I tend to check scores, words with friends, Facebook, and my email, and usually respond to whatever is related to me, in that order, it just so happens that TLS comments on this thread are linked to my email. Plus it's currently a commercial break.


haha...point taken. then again im on here too so im not doin much better. seriously im thinking of implementing a mandatory tls break for a week or two but i cant seem to stay away after i prep lol

I turn my phone into a timer when I practice on LG, other time I try to shut it down. My phone is a huge distraction....

Kaos- Although I am out of the country now, I am moving back to Arizona in April and taking the June at ASU. I am reading through LGB, LRB, and MLSAT LG now. By the time I am back in Arizona, I plan to be taking PTs 2-3 times weekly. If you want to meet up then, or if you have a study group by then, we can work out a study schedule.

Took the December LSAT and got a 168. All but 2 of my wrong answers were in logic games. At least I have a targeted area to study, lol.

I applied this cycle already to Temple U in Philly, but I've been convinced to leave the money on the table and shoot for UPenn next cycle. Goal score is 172+.

I don't know what my study plan is gonna be, but I am hoping to have a shot at a little $, so it's gotta be intense.

Looking forward to seeing y'all around for the next 5 months!

may i ask what your LUGPA is...with a 168 and a 3.8x plus you still have a decent shot at GCMP


It's a 3.84.

My problem is that I want to stay in Philadelphia (my girlfriend is a Penn PhD candidate and will be here until at least 2016). So I want to get myself as close to auto-admit status as possible. Considering applying ED, actually.

My GPA is absolute dog shit cause of issues out of my control, so hopefully I can explain that in personal statements. But aiming for a 172+ as well, FINGERS CROSSED WE BOTH END UP AT UPENN. But 178 would be absolutely incredible, JUST DON'T LOSE FOCUS, eyes on the prize, all those other inspirational corny quotes :)

8) update from my phone.
Today I did 8 advance linear games
PT 7 Game 2 7:08 -0
PT 7 Game 4 7:45 -0
PT 14 Game 2 5:42 -0
PT 16 Game 2 6:09 -0
PT 19 Game 2 6:23 -0
PT 20 Game 4 8:35 -0
PT 22 Game 2 7:34 -0
PT 24 Game 2 9:48 -1
I was kicked ass by PT 24 Game 2. It took me over 4 minute to figure out a way to diagram this game, I put this file into " Need review " section.

Guys, how do you diagram this game? I diagram two lines, then mark I as introductory, A as advanced, on Q15, I don't have space to diagram so I have to move my diagram to the bottom. And I choked on Q15.... It took me over 1:45

Also, finally finished LR Bible, will join you guys with MLRB and merciless type drilling.

Do you all have a great weekend?

I did. It was so much fun with LSAT

Congrats on the LRB finish - It's always an awesome feeling to finish a book, esp a 500+ page beast! Good job with the adv linear drills too! I wish I knew what game you were talking about...I'm not drilling yet so I shouldn't look at a game yet.

This PT was taken un-timed and with the sections broken up, but I'm still quite happy with the result given how little time I've spent practicing so far:

I would def review it thoroughly and go back and take it timed after some time - maybe after a week or so. Unless it is a recent one, then I'd take it timed in few months. (I'm diagramming in my head the unless statement I've just wrote...lol)

good job!

Just made a countdown to hang in my room of how many days are left (removing a day when I wake up to go to work each day).

148, y'all.

Btw, if anybody is in the DC area and wants to work on a similar schedule and meet up on weekends to review, PM me. I'm scoring around 170 now, with the most issues on RC.

Did a few segments of reading comprehension. I think I'm finally beginning to get the hang of them (Went -0 -1 -0). I haven't switched up my method at all, and am still relying mostly on my 'gut'. Maybe I'm just becoming more familiar with the test.

Did them back to back to back without a timer since I am trying to build my endurance, but the entire process probably took about an hour and a half, so close enough to 35 min/section for me to be quite happy.
