Should I give up?

Postby roranoa » Sun Sep 29, 2013 12:03 am

That is, when should I decide 'Oh I'm not gonna get much better from here. No t14 for me!' and just move on with my life? My score has plateaued for awhile now and I don't know if i should plough through or just be content.


Anybody mulling over the same thing?

When you've done enough.

(Certainly when you start freezing up and doing worse.)

The point where you no longer feel like you're legitimately and fairly consistently chasing your dreams/goals is when you throw in the towel. If you're miserable because you're studying; throw in the towel. However, if you're simply miserable about studying because of how you're scoring; "Keep on keepin' on!".

Sometimes you plateau.

Take a break and do something else. Even just a few days.

Are you using LSATQA or something similar to review what kinds of things you are getting wrong?
