Dunno how you couldn't crack the 170s with those logic skills.

The 170+ are more likely to post. Also 170 was only 97th percentile oddly enough this test, and is usually 98th FYI.

TLS is an unrepresentative sampling of test takers.

For people who have taken the test without any prep and then with some prep, is the increase in score worthwhile?


TITC attitude. Almost always worthwhile. Join us in the June thread, brother. http://top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=198695


TITC? I'll definitely consider it if the gains are as substantial as y'all are saying.

170 was 98th for a long time, but it's been slowly declining in recent years. It was 97.2% in October fwiw.

This forum is filled with elitist assholes who don't understand how the world works. That's all.

Well....the website is called "Top-Law-Schools.com". I'm not advocating anyones behavior but what do you expect.

Same thing happened to me. By the time I took it the fourth time I had a bit of a "eh whatever this again" attitude which I actually think calmed me down.

Rad! I'll probably sign up for the June test over spring break and hopefully have time to prepare along with my 18 credit course load.

Thanks!

Triple LR? What a nightmare.

So you mega-bombed that section, say -10. What's a 158, like 20 wrong?
