They announced it on their blog. Not sure why they haven't updated the website though; that is strange.

thanks to all who suggested 7sage. Been cruising through the content and it is really enjoyable (for studying that is). The other programs would be too hard to use after the long days at work. At least JY is entertaining!!

This topic goes out to all the Feb test takers, especially those finishing up UG. If you fail to reach your February LSAT goal and still intend to go to law school, then what are your plans for the gap year?

Personally, as long as I'm not living at my parents house, I could care less. I'm thinking of leaving the country for some type of service. I want to avoid the eastern world, though, because I think a visit to china has a high probability of incarceration, due to overindulgence in prostitutes and Saki.

Took PT 51 about 10 days ago - 168, -5 LR, -6 RC and -3 LG, 86 raw. Took 38 minute sections. RC felt good (but obviously needs to improve), I'm satisfied with the LR performance, and I made some stupid mistakes on LG.

I've really been slacking the past week or so. I went home to my parents house and set out a very light study schedule - I didn't even end up opening anything LSAT related. Anyway, I'll be back at it tomorrow with some LR and RC drilling and the usual 3LG per day. Set to take PT 52, 54 and 55 this week, but might move 55 and drill instead. Hope to report back some 17X's!!

I feel like I've hit the 170 ceiling and need help getting past that! I've been studying over the summer and read the Powerscore and Manhattan prep books, and now I'm drilling Cambridge. Timing is okay (still need to work on it) but I always miss the hardest LR questions or have some careless mistakes.

What's your advice on breaking that score ceiling?

Where's everyone at with the LG? I'm still needing 40 mins to go (-0) - (-3).

Hoping 5 5/7 a week will be enough to shave off 5 minutes while still doing well enough. (Any chance we can get an hourly countdown to the 8th? ...or never mind, forget that.)

Then you should do LR sections back to back timed and un-timed. Try to get the first 15 questions done very quickly so you have a lot of time for the last ones.

This, absolutely -- especially wrt the timing advice. It seems that for most people, the second most significant jump in scoring (the first being locking down your LG skills) comes from being able to accurately race through the first 15 LR Q's. LR has been my last major stumbling block, but in using this advice, I went from -3 to -4 per section to -0 to -1.

Try this. Perhaps practice the method on some early LR sections to see if it's right for you -- but for me, having plenty of time (20 to 21 minutes) for the last 11 or 12 questions was a complete game changer.

I'm also going to support this. I started off with the first 10 in 10 as my goal. From there I went on to 15 in 15. Generally, I'll complete the first 10 in under 10, giving me a little extra time on 11-15. I went from -4 per section to -1 or 2 rather quickly just by keeping that pace up (I'm talking in the span of a couple weeks). The benefit of of having the extra time for 16-2x cannot be understated.

edit: Didn't actually mean to parrot the post above me.... but at least now you have multiple people endorsing the tactic :D

For all applying this cycle - are you planning on submitting your applications before you take the Feb test? Is this a thing? Many schools have deadlines before we will have Feb scores..

Yep - already sent two out. I will have all mine done prior to taking the test; however, I also already have a score. I'm not shooting for T14, tho.

Somewhat out of left field:

The only thing that kind of throws me off is splitting game boards. J.Y. seems to be partial to that approach but I don't know how appropriate it is w/ regard to the newer games...

I agree that splitting game boards is somewhat of a confusing tactic. I think this is true in particular because it's often difficult to tell when it would be appropriate, and when it might be. HUGE unnecessary time sink.

I've personally found that it is only useful (again, for me -- others may totally disagree) if the split goes no more than 4 ways. Anything past 4, and I feel it's better to be more rules-focused than board-focused.

I also find that if I have more than 4 boards, it can be easy to miss things.
