It's always good to have the back-up test just in case, and if you plan to apply as early as possible a June/September 2014 LSAT combo might be better than September/ October 2014 .
Still though, you know yourself and what you're comfortable with. All I'm gonna say is everybody naturally second guesses themselves at some point during his/her path to greatness (170+) Make sure this is what you really want. Good luck, and I'll be rooting for you whenever you do decide to take the test!
Yea I'm sure. While I could go into June and score decently, I don't want decent. I want stellar. I want a 172+. With everyday that goes by, I get more and more aware of three things: (1) this test is hard
. It is not something that you can rush successfully. I wish I could study for 7 hours a day - and sometimes I do - but it is just getting harder and harder. (2) debt is scary
. I am getting progressively terrified of debt. Not only of debt, but of having bad job prospects. In addition, I have realized that simply GETTING IN to a T14 may not be sufficient to my goals. With my GPA, even a 167 will get me a few T14s. However, do I want to be FORCED to go into big law? I don't want to be forced to do anything. I want to graduate knowing that my debt is serviceable in a variety of ways. (3) sitting out a cycle
, if absolutely need be (it probably won't) is not a scary proposition
. I already have my plan for next year and I just want to build a career. This is not something that needs to be rushed and having two whole years of work experience before matriculating will ONLY help me.
The LSAT can keep me out of opportunities but it can also land me opportunities. I want to be on the better end of that. I just don't want to walk into that testing center thinking, "well i HOPE this is one of those good days." I want to go in there thinking "This will go just like the rest of them and I'm not nervous at all."
TLS has seriously changed my life. I would be going to a TTT if it wasn't for you guys. On the other hand, you guys have made my standards too high
EDIT: and your totally right ^. What if I were to take it - freak out because I'm not ready - and score WAY below my potential. It happens ALL the time around here. Imagine how much pressure THAT would put on me. At least by delaying I can be sure that I'm unsure of how I'd do in a testing situation. There is a little bit of comfort in that as I wouldn't be coming from behind.
