is one month enough time to brush up

Postby gaucholaw » Fri May 10, 2013 7:06 am

I took the testmaster's course twice in both summer '11 and summer '12. I took Oct '12 and Dec '12 LSAT.... 167, Cancel respectively.
Anyways, my main problem is I choke.... I was pt'ing about 6 points higher on an average day.
Factors to consider:
I will be graduating the day after the test.... so I might be stressed
On the positive side, I am already a T-14 admit from this cycle that I can fall back on, so not too much pressure. I'm kind of just hoping for a hail mary

Well this will be your final retake, right? With your acceptance, does this mean that you intend on going this year unless you score better?

In most cases I think October would be the better date. You could always try a PT or two and see where you're currently scoring.

Is a month enough time to maximize your score? No. But if you already underperformed twice maybe a month is enough to continue scores along the lines you used to have, then just don't choke test day!
Take a practice test TODAY and find out. If you think you still got it in you give it your all for a month and try.
