No solid average, only scoring between 167 and 170 for four or five weeks.

Today's score isn't burnout. I haven't even looked at an LSAT problem in 3 days.


=(

Could it be stress? Or did you progress from the high 50s to the 60s? The 60s are definitely harder, and virtually everyone sees a few point drop from the "transition".

I just took 63, which is a retake, and finished each section in less than 28 minutes or less. I'm not grading any PTs anymore, just reviewing all of my answers to make sure I'm positive I selected an answer conforming to the question stem, and making sure I had a good reason for all of my answers.

Anyone know of any PTs/sections from 40 upwards I should do? I've already done everything once, and I've basically done each PT in the sixties twice, so there's that.

Yep, I've been working in order through the 10 New book. My last three 164s were from tests 65, 67, and 68.

I am super serial. I'm sorry dawg, and I wish you all the best. I might be seeing you on the October thread too. I've been getting 171-169. If I get a 169, I'm retaking. If I get a 170, I'm happy. If I get a 171, I'm fucking psyched. If I get higher than that, the world will not be able to contain the Gatsby-like party I'm throwing.

If you score 172+, are we invited?

Probably not completely. Will likely do a PT and/or a few sections and/or some drilling.

What are everyone's plans for Sunday?

The same. Probably do PT 67, review, and drill LGs the rest of the way.

I'm going to redo PT 68 untimed, slowly working through each question and redoing past PT sections of LG that gave me problems (any games that i didnt go -0 in the allotted time). I will be doing my last fresh PT tomorrow, 66, so hopefully it sends me into the weekends feeling confident.

Today, I think I'll redo a few LGs from the 50s I haven't gone over in a while, and maybe do an RC passage or two. Tomorrow, I'll take Preptest A and review. Sunday, I'll do some light review early, take the mid-afternoon and night off, and get to bed after Game 5 of the Penguins/Bruins series (hopefully necessary). Wake up kinda early on Monday, bring a few easy questions to take right before the test, and then crush PT 69.

Literally nothing. I'll probably go see a movie, workout/jog, get some drinks somewhere and enjoy the beautiful weather.

What is everyone doing the morning of? Just reviewing a past PT, and doing problems? But which problems should I be doing? Ones that I got right the first time? But won't that not help anything lol especially if I remember them? But i take it i shouldnt do a new section of anything the morning of for fear of confidence killing, am i right about that at least?

I'm just going over 1 or two easy games, and 5-10 easy LRs just to get in the mindset. I won't check answers or use any fresh materials.

On a side note, I'm freaking out a little because, going over the harder games in the 60s a 2nd/3rd time, it's still taking a significant amount of time. I think it is very bad for me to practice individual games because of the time pressures I keep putting on myself.

Ya, I'm redoing all of the games from pts 60-68 right now and If i was doing each game individually i wold kill myself, but since im doing them as the sections were created a 15 minutes game is usually accompanied by 2 3-4 minute games.

I'm going to this organic local breakfast place and having two eggs and sausage, with a glass of orange juice. Then I'm walking over to a coffee shop and doing a section of logic games and like 10 LR while I have some espresso and listen to Michael Buble. Then I'm heading over to the testing location.

When i first starting reading about you going to a "coffee shop" i assumed some trendy coffee shop, but Buble? C'mon now, call it like it is... Starbucks. lol

I'm actually embarrassed that i know this, but i vaguely remember seeing his cd for sale in the last Starbucks i went into.

But you're assuming that the only way that he/she could be listening to music is through the sound system of the coffee shop. Could be via iPod.

NOBODY is listening to Buble by choice. I don't care who you are, there are better alternatives to him for most every occasion.

Doing a full PT tomorrow and hope for the best. Sunday I'll do untimed stuff but try to do it quickly. Sunday I'll try to clear my mind for the most part with Heat/Spurs, Mad Men, and Game of Thrones.


The stained glass game was rather annoying, but wasn't too bad. The meeting one annoyed me more. Probably didn't help my grandma started trying to have a conversation while I was mid game...

Anyways only had time for 2 sections so did Sec 2 (LR1) and LG. -6 on LR and -1 on LG (was a matter of transfering the answer wrong so I guess that's good at least but I will still count it wrong). How I missed 3 out of the first 10 questions on LR is beyond me...

I actually quite enjoy Michael Buble have been known, at times, to listen to him by choice.
