It's not June yet. You'll be fine, but stay positive. There'll be plenty of time for freaking out and second-guessing in the June waiting thread.


And drinking. Lots of drinking.


This especially.


sorry for being such a downer and all...obviously this mind set is going to get me nowhere. really trying to turn this into a positive right now lol...use it as motivation i guess.

achilles bro, just do the tests and use your brain to solve them, not manhattan's. you never know what your brain is capable of...i feel like on this forum there is so much emphasis placed on conforming to learning certain strategies when you might actually learn better if you attack PTs on your own

Really back to the basics. Actively look for subject shifts in the premise and conclusion. Make sure the author didn't assume that because one way works to arrive at a conclusion, that it is the only way to do so. Ask what didn't the author consider/account for...Good group here, you got this.

Never been one for drinking, but Im pretty sure this will be a regular thing once I hit the waiting thread.

Before I post numbers, it should be noted that I first, took the first three sections together, and just finished the fourth, so fatigue did not play a factor, second, I've literally seen all four of these games before. I don't know which book, Powerscore or Manhattan, but definitely familiar, not that I remembered any of the inferences, but still. Oh, and used the LSAT proctor app on my phone.

PT 44: Raw 92, Scaled 172

RC: -4, #8, #16, #18, #22, finished early, I was surprised, none of the passages gave me trouble, I thought I nailed it, I was wrong.
LR1: -2, #13, #22, ran out of time
LG: -0, finished really early
LR2: -2, #21, #23, both are matching, which I saved until last, again I ran out of time

Time to review.

how does tinychat work? Is it as interactive or basically typing throughout to communicate? Having audio would be awesome. I know Manhattan LSAT offered their online classrooms to set up review sessions back in the day.

You can cam/audio in addition to text. When I said review, I meant getting onto Tinychat and going over questions with each other, so camming would be legit.


Ok great! :)

Killing hybrid games this morning. After class I'll be knocking out LR and RC timed sections from Preptest 29. Making my way through 29-38 this week to be ready for the first preptest next week.

Hey Theo, it was always June, actually. Just started my prep early. :)

Are you pushing back? I could have sworn you were committed to December? Guess that means we are both applying to law school this year?

Why not only take when you are fully prepared? One and done is my motto. :D

Let's hope I won't be seeing you at the library during the Spring/early summer months. Good luck next weekend! ;)

I am someone who has to put up with a lot of anxiety, and it tends to screw me up. So while I have studied a lot, I would like to use two chances to make sure everything is good.

Hopefully wont. I am pretty sick of that library at this point, the lights and the smell.

Great work. 172 was my PT peak last year, so I'm expecting a sub-170 on my first take in a few weeks.

So apparently it is possible to improve in RC Ladies/Gents. I think it was just last week when I was around -10 to -13 per (maybe I was tired from work, but that def wasn't the only issue. I was struggling...BADLY). Drilled it hard for a week maybe, including the weekend and my last 2 sections have been -6, and -5. By far the best I've had. May be a bit early to start celebrating since I've only done 2 full timed sections, but going from -13 to -6 is no small feat.

I recently started reading this bio called "Sergio" (really dry piece of work) on the bus rides to and from work. I think thats helped a lot in addition to the advice from many of you all.

ETA: Finishing with a little over a minute to spare.

You're fine. Many have just started in the last two weeks.

Linear is generally the easiest.

EDIT: Were you one of the Oct 2012 takers, too?
