I've got another 2 hours or so in me I think.



HOW DO YOU HAVE THAT STAMINA?????

Is this normal? I can probably do 12 before I'm spent.

If he's redoing old games, it's not nearly as draining.

The one thing I can't stand about reading comprehension is how subjective some of the answer choices are. It always feels like if I pick an answer choice that looks like the best answer it'll be the case that a certain phrase was "out of scope" and the passage "made no mention of this word" and it'll be incorrect because of a subtle ambiguity, then, later on in another passage, I'll pick an answer choice other than the one that is a mirror image of the type of answer choice that I incorrectly picked in that earlier passage and then suddenly that answer will be right because the phrasing that I was lead to believe was out of scope in a past passage is suddenly considered to be a "synonym" for the author's wording.


You know what I'm saying? Anyone feel me on that?

Agreed. Reading Comp is all over the place. Some logical reasoning can be kind of like that too. What I hate is how the LSAT writers use words like "although" or "but" and mean them in a way that makes no sense in normalspeak. What they really mean is "_____" or "and."

Just took PT 65 untimed (too tired after work for timed and under pressure test.) Scored a 179. Honestly I don't think I ever went more then 3 minutes over 35 minutes. Its amazing how high you can score with absolutely no pressure

so my testing site is where i went to college. the test has always been administered at our business school, which is relatively new and is an amazing testing site.

for some reason i look at my ticket and it says that the test will be at what was/is widely considered to be the worst building in our school. desks are tiny, ventilation is horrible, and there is only ONE restroom per floor.

took a practice test yesterday at the new site and can't fit my testing booklet on the desk unless i fold it in half, let alone the answer sheet or watch.

emailed LSAC, not sure what else i can do. probably nothing to do but suck it up, right?

You should ask yourself, "What would Harvey Specter do?"

“What are your choices when someone puts a gun to your head?
What are you talking about? You do what they say or they shoot you.
WRONG. You take the gun, or you pull out a bigger one. Or, you call their bluff. Or, you do any one of a hundred and forty six other things.”

This sucks, but it happens to a lot of people.
My ticket says "meet in lobby" which is freaking terrifying.

Hi Y'all!

So I'm new to this forum, but it's cool to see we're all in the same boat for that June LSAT! Was wondering if anyone that's testing at UCLA got an address confirmation yet on the admission ticket? I know the meeting location can show up quite late but figured I'd asked. Time to head to the library now to practice! Good luck fellas!

Gotta get a new one.

Wow. Used pt62 for drills and it DEMOLISHED me. Wow. Sounds like other people had issues on it too.
-14 on RC. LOLZ might as well have just done two passages.
-9 on last LR section...WUT. I've been focusing on LR so much lately. So freaking discouraging.

I just want to preemptively tell you not to be discouraged if you don't do too well. I think this test has OWNED most of us at one point or another.

Got a 157 last October (gross). Have done 17 practice tests in the last two weeks and am averaging a 166. Lowest 163. Highest 174. Off doing Army stuff tomorrow through Saturday. Only time for two more practice tests. GOD HELP ME.

After getting my best score yet on PT65 yesterday, PT66 destroyed me today. -5 on the RC, -3 on the games..

I feel as if I always do poorly on June exams, not great for confidence heading into Monday.

Just think that its not YOU doing poorly- its the test having a tougher curve. Tougher curve= easier test, theoretically.
