wtf? Withdraw February?

Postby nmare » Fri Feb 08, 2013 4:39 pm

URM Applicant trying to get 165+ and feeling horrible. I have taken a PT everyday this week in prep for tomorrow and my score have been 164, 165, 165, 166, 162, and 160, respectively. The 160 was on PT 66 that I just took today and 162 on PT 65 that I took yesterday. This is making me feel extremely timid in my test-taking abilities :x . The problem is that I have taken the LSAT twice before, once in October 2011 (cancel) and just recently in December 2012 (160). Given that it's my last LSAT, should I push till June and sit this cycle out? Or, if anyone is familiar with the two-year rule, can I take the test tomorrow and be 100% able to take it again in October 2013? I'm not sure, given the three test rule, if I would be able to take it for the fourth time in October if I do end up taking the test tomorrow. Also worth mentioning that I have spent $ on a handful of apps and got approval from many t14s that they will wait for my Feb LSAT score to make a decision. Thanks in advance for replies.

It sounds like you've burned yourself out. Taking a PT every day is not a good idea. If you aren't applying this cycle, I'd recommend rescheduling your test to June. Just keep in mind that you need to give your brain a break. I scored my best PT scores after 2 or 3 days of breaking with no studying. If you are set on tomorrow, then you need to spend the rest of today relaxing and doing something fun.

oh no....no PT the day prior. Need a fresh, clear mind. Like PP said, you've probably burned yourself out. Take the night off, go eat a nice dinner with some friends, watch a movie and get a good night's rest.

I vote burn out too.. It happened to me twice while studying. If you are going to proceed and take the test, which I wouldn't recommend, then go watch a movie and relax. Watching a movie was my best way to rest the eyes and force my mind to think about something else...
