Tomorrow I would like to spend a ton of hours studying, drilling, and taking a PT (with my first blind review). But I worry I won't be able to do anything but the damn test.


On my PT days (weekends) I only do the PT and the review. The rest of my time is mine.
On the nights I am doing evening PTs after work- I do some LG drilling at lunchtime. Nothing too serious.

I don't think ill get to the point of double-PT days.

I get to one PT per weekend...LR drilling during the weekdays during my lunch break and after work. Any day now, I'm gonna have to step it up!

Any day now...

btw, When asking for LORs, do the teachers (or whoever is writing them) give the LOR to us, or do they send them to LSAC?


Send them to lsac

Also good luck with RC drilling

I survived. And I am showing improvement!

LR: -5
LG: -2
LR: -6
RC: -5

Score: 167; Blind Review: 170

This may be my lowest RC and LG yet.

Going to crank out the LR bible the next few weeks as my focus with PTs.
I'm only doing 4 section PTs, but I'm doing them straight with no break. Are you guys taking the 15 min break if you're doing 5 section PTs?

Yup! With 4 section PTs I go straight through- 5 sections I do just as if it was test day.

lets say...purely hypothetically, that Human A took the LSAT in june 2012, October 2013, registered for but did not appear for the February 2014, and will take it in june 2014. The test that Human A did not appear for will not count against him/her.

Would Human A be able to take the September 2014 test should the June 2014 go awry?

Since it's september it would be outside of the 2 year window...technically. but would you fall under the other part of the rule? "You may not take the LSAT more than three times in any two-year period. This policy applies even if you cancel your score or if your score is not otherwise reported."

How much of a point difference do you expect to see between Oct 13 and now? and how much was the jump from June 12 - Oct 13

Provided that Feb test really doesn't count against you, then yes, you would be under the 3 tests /2 years thing. I'd call LSAC to be sure. (I think you're safe if you didn't actually sit vs sat/cancelled)

Great job! Very strong RC. If you can just rock a -0 on LG and tighten up LR a tiny bit you will be in that ZONE!

October 13 was a huge anomaly in my mind because of various reasons and I scored around 8 points below my 170~ PT average. My June 12 was a 165, and I expect to either take it in June 14 or Sept 14 for a 170+.

I might just have to call LSAC as rebex suggested to confirm.

has anyone done PT 70 yet? I'm about to cry over the LR on this one. I did a blind review of LG and went from -6 to -2, and on RC -6 to -2. I scored the EXACT same on both LR sections. I'd rather not mention how many I missed.

I took that in October. And I did cry. I will probably cry again in May when I have scheduled to redo it. :cry:

i think i literally cried after I got that back in October. Whether I take June or not will largely depend on how I do when I retake it in May like rebex.

okay so I'm not actually as awful as I think I am? Was it mostly LR that effed with you guys? I'll just get honest here - I missed 11 on each one.

If I bought the LR vol 3 (1,014 questions), think I could get through it by June?
