I read the prompt for the first PT I took and then did literally nothing else.

I did the same thing.

I had:

RC-LR-LG-LG-LR

1st LG - :) :) :) :shock:
2nd LG - :) :) :) :)

Personally, I think the first section was experimental because of game 4. However, I did think the other 7 games in the test were VERY easy, so it's hard to say with certainty.

I only had one LG section, but my experience mirrors your 1st LG section.

I am glad that I only had one LG but it was my last section and my brain was fried by that time. I'm fairly confident I bombed the LG. Unlike many others on this site, though, I felt both RCs and LRs were pretty easy. All the "what ifs" in my head are making me anxious. I was nowhere near as nervous before the test as I am now. My husband took the LSAT 20 years ago and it helps that he understands but he said waiting to see if you pass the bar is even worse. Greeeaaaat. I quit drinking last year but I have found myself dipping into the wine since Saturday. :?

Are you dating well outside of your age range, or are you a non-traditional applicant? (read non-traditional applicant as "also old")

Both, kind of. My husband is 6 years older plus he skipped 2 grades in elementary school, earned his undergrad in 3 years and his law degree in 2 - so it makes it seem worse than it really is. I am also a non-traditional applicant (37 y/o.)

I'm definitely out of the mainstream here in that I'm old (37) and I'm very much on the fence about attending law school (probably only if I can swing a full-tuition scholarship), but decided to take the LSAT and see how things went. Probably should have studied more - and meant to - but life got busy and I just didn't make it a priority, so my answer to my own question is that I took the "official free" prep test, cold, in December, and answered a few LG questions from the same PT the morning of the test, and, well, that was my prep.

Flame suit on. :?


Anybody that is going to flame you for not studying enough has no place here. This is and ought to be stress free place where torture victims LSAT takers can bond over shared hardship and impending doom. Come let us toast the beginning of Spring, the renewal of hope, and the return of baseball.

I took about a half dozen complete tests (minus the pointless writing section), but otherwise worked through 3 books of 10, actual, official LSAT.



Huck's right, no one can judge you - everyone's different. How much you study depends on how much you need to study. Personally, I took over 40 PTs, half of them twice, all of them timed, plus every LG ever - why, you ask? Because 1) I obviously have no job, 2) I obviously have no life, 3) I'm an idiot and actually needed that much prep.

But best of luck to you - after all, your test might turn out better than you think.

Yes, they emailed the extensions (and a few waivers) to me.

I'm not even applying this year but in the past week I've received emails from probably 5 different schools giving me fee waivers and informing me that they're extending deadlines and I don't even have a LSAT on file. These were all T2 and below of course.

Same boat as Janitor. I'm not going to apply until next year. Just wanted a score before graduating cuz I didn't want to be studying while working.

I would recommend not putting your email on a public forum like this. Use PMs instead.

Since Saturday I've just been having weird dreams related to questions from the LSAT, March couldn't come soon enough.

I had a brief dream last night in which I was doing LG, but with a catch. The elements were actual people, and I was constructing hypotheticals by directing them into different groups live and in-person. Wish I remembered more specifics, but it's still pretty trippy.

Last night I had a weird dream I was administering the LSAT, and putting the test together myself. Half of the sections were like.. incomplete PDFs of readings from my classes, with lots of pictures. As I said, weird.

Wonder when the LSAT dreaming will stop..

But best of luck to you - after all, your test might turn out better than you think.


Thanks for the kind words :)

I think doing some serious prep might have helped on the final LG game, which hung me up a bit; I wound up having to blindly guess at the last question as time ran out after having made great time on the first three games. Unless I got lucky, I probably went -2 on the LG section. I'm thinking -0 to -3 on the rest of the test combined, so probably -2 to -5 overall, with an outside shot at -1 but also a possibility of -7 or -8 if I had a bonehead error or two somewhere.

So I'll have a good score - 170-plus for sure, and my best guess is ~176 - but doing some prep might have given me a more realistic shot at a 180. But I'll know for sure in a few weeks :)

Please don't forget there are a lot of people who really struggle to get a 160, and your post tends to put down the people who have to work to get into law school. This is the LSAT, after all - a good score is a good score is a good score. Congratulations that you did so well, but remember the difference between a 176 and a 180 is so small that nobody really cares. If your app is strong, you'll get your full ride on your own merit, not on that 4-point difference.
