Noooo, that's the worst! but maybe a day off will be beneficial.

Also, are any of you guys using your score to apply for this year's cycle or am I the only one :shock:


I am applying this cycle. I am getting out of grad school. Academic research is not for me. And the job market is actually worst than law. lol

PM me if you want to talk application strategy. I have applied to 9 schools, assuming I am getting a 155. I hope to do better, but I think 152-155 is the worst I will do. My theory is if i do better I will get full rides to most of them. Though I really want Gtown, UVA or Cornell. I need atleast 170

How is everyone approaching these last two weeks?

I was originally planning on taking a PT every day through the Thursday before the test, thinking that it would make the actual test feel normal. However, I am now wondering if a rest day or two (with some LG practice) would be useful.


Welcome to the club mate :)

Give yourself a couple days off for sure. I think this also strongly depends upon your current score consistency, whether you ought to still be drilling, and you personally with respect to burnout potential.

Oh no dude! But hey, test is 2 weeks out -- you'll be fully recovered by then, and WAY better now then test day.

HYS. I'm an AA male with a 3.7x so I'm assuming 170+ should do it.

Also mate, you should seriously consider applying to Penn anyways if you feel like your numbers have even a chance. The score for the February test posts ON the 5th according to LSAC -- which almost definitely means on or before that date.cin addition, if your application is in but they don't have your LSAT yet, you should be able to let them know to expect scores from the February administration and still be considered.

Personally I prefer to review immediately after taking a PT, because for myself, it's important for me to remember what it was I was thinking when I chose a wrong answer choice. Was it a dumb mistake? Was I really torn between 2 answer choices? Did I completely misread something, or not pay close enough attention to the question stem?

It depends on you personally, but for me, immediately reviewing is the only way.

I only have:

LG bible
LR bible (read twice)
35 PT's

Hope that was sufficient for this test :)

I talked to a girl and she told me she only did 4 PT's prior to taking the test and no additional prep material

my mouth dropped to say the least until I found out she got a 146

This is the norm for sure.

There's this truly awesome thread floating around called "Overheard at the LSAT" -- god, do I ever recommend reading all hundred pages of it.

Manhattan LR. Never actually got around to reading it, along with a few other books in that pile.
