-18 to -3 on LR; feasible?

Postby AHarpinng » Mon Jan 14, 2013 1:00 am

Hello all. I've been stalking this board for some time (albeit accountlessly until now). What a treasure trove of information!

I'm a sophomore, and over the winter break, I found that I had a good stretch of free time in front of me before the spring semester, so I decided to purchase the LG bible and do some speculative studying. Shortly after, I purchased the LSAC "10 Next, New, blahbidyblahblah" pre-tests. In total, I've been studying for approximately three weeks, although not hardcore. After finishing the bible I decided to do some of the sections individually; I didn't want to take a diagnostic, because if I got a low score I didn't want to be psychologically bound to it.

So after having "sampled" the LSAT in this manner, I got a -3 on LG, -4 on RC (for which I had no prep) but a disappointing -8, -4, and -9 on three separate LRs, which I suppose should properly be doubled if I were to account for a second section.

Given the above data, is a score in the upper 170s feasible? I understand that achieving this will primarily consist in improving my LR score, but is it as common to see these kinds of gains as it in LG?

So you did three cold diagnostic sections and got a couple questions wrong? You're not cut out for law school.

No. What the hell is wrong with you, worrying like this? LR is completely learnable. I did terrible on my diagnostics. I went -0 for all of LR on the Dec. LSAT. Don't worry.

Go buy the rest of the PTs from LSAC though.
