Jumped another 5 points in a week.141 to 157 can I ask4more?

Postby MiracleNeeded » Tue Jul 23, 2013 9:10 pm

OK, so my tutor and I set a goal of 165 my first lsat in 2009 was a 141. I took LSAT 68 as my first diagnostic since that test this last March (stupid I know I know) and got a 141 it was basically cold i just studied the PS games bibles.

I just started PTs again a few weeks ago and went from 141 to 149, 152 and not 157. I'm taking th Oct LSAT can I go beyond the 165 goal? Or is that asking too much?

I hear so much about the limits of where one can go, how much one can raise their score realistically. I have another 62 or so LSATS to blow through in that time and my biggest enemy is timing. I need a little encouragement. I'm shoting for the 180 and if I dont get it so what? I'll get as closs as I can.

If you have 62 left, you haven't been taking enough practice tests, step your game up!

Glad you share the same sentiment. I immediately dropped my tutor after he stated a realistic goal for me should be 165, stating that a 170+ is unlikely. I am now at a 165-167 range with two months to go. Some people should not be tutors.

i hear all kinds of things, not all of them are accurate, and many people have different definitions of realism, just look at the Chinese revolution and the Scar movement for an example.


Thats from a RC passage.

btw, you get your full use from pts after you've done them 3 times over.
Then you can say you're done.


Jaylawyer09 I would be happy to redo the prep tests, esp. since I ordered 3 more of the 10 LSAT pt books and they don't arrive for another day or so. I'm itching to do another test but my problem with retaking lsats is that I feel like I'm cheating when I jump to an answer I remember to be correct.

I guess I can go over yesterday's test and see where I went wrong on some answers. LSAT 68 has the African film maker passage that I am very familiar with and I feel like it's almost counter productive to redo it.
