Either way I'm taking a PT today so if people are down, I could do tonight/friday review of 70? Maybe saturday morning-ish.

I'd like to take 70 in the same exact order as I had it on test day, as well.

That said, if December goes well I'll pay the $25 to hold onto the hope a little longer :)


havent heard from any of those schools besides Vandy :(


Wow. Maybe you have hidden fee waivers? I've received waivers for all the T14s sans HYS, Cornell and Berkeley and my stats aren't stellar.


I have UCLA, Penn, Vandy (out of schools that I'd actually apply to). At what point should I start soliciting them?

Edit: NYU as well.


I would start soliciting them now probably. I have no idea though because sadly I fall into the "they are just trying to pad their acceptance rate with my free app" category. Couldn't hurt to try now, and absolute worst case try again with your new score?

Ugh same. It's like once I succeed in forcing myself to start a PT, studying becomes a lot easier, but it's that initial "I'm going to be stuck doing this for the next 4 hours" mindset that's hard to get into.

I haven't touched any LSAT material in the last two days :|


Yeeeeah I need to get back to it. I was on a roll earlier this week and then... nothing. :oops:

For those who mastered LG, do you stop and look for an inference after looking at each rule? Or do you write down all the rules, then look for inferences?

I write down all rules first and then see if any of them can connect in a way that could help. If so I will either diagram it out or make a quick hypo looking like diagram. I never waste too much time on this though so if I get stuck I just move onto solving questions. Inferences come from working on questions too.

Usually finish LG with about 5 minutes to spare this way.

I write out all the rules and then look for inferences.
sometimes I don't find an inference right away, even after writing the rules, so I imagine it would be a waste of time to look for inferences before writing rules if in the end there isn't any to make. Idk if I have mastered LG, but there is hardly ever a section where I don't go -0.

I write all the rules first and quickly jot down obvious and helpful inferences. If I don't think I found enough or I'm missing a big one, I do the hypothetical questions first because I generally figure out the missing inference by diagramming those.

No. Also realize when you write down [read diagram] the rules, you don't have to go in order. You should be practicing rule addition. If the first rule says A is before D, you should diagram this rule and look for any other rules mentioning A or D. If the third rule says two or more people must perform after D and before C, then you got A - D _ _ + C. You ought to streamline the time you waste spend with the rules and scenario. If you're afraid going out of order with the rules will mess with you, just put a check next to every rule you've accounted for.

If you rely on thinking time to recognize inferences, you can take 30 seconds after the initial diagramming to make some sick deductions. I like to draw a clean, fast diagram with the rule diagrams next to it and then immediately attack the first question, which does nothing more than test whether you can read the rules or not. The second question is usually where I'll find some huge inference if there is even one to be had.

PST or EST?

Thought so, but I wanted to check just in case :D

I prefer Tuesday but I can do Monday if it works better for other people.

I'm down for the 70 review either day. I haven't been able to do either of the other ones so could someone PM me the link? Thanks!

Mexican lurker over here! I am going to be more involved in this forum while I prepare for my retake in February, last time I only read all of you.
I got a horrible 150 :( I took blueprint course, and loved it, but I need a change of preparation. Now I am studying with the bibles. I like them a lot!! Any advice on study material?
:D

Manhattan LR and then drill with Cambridge Packets! Also, the Trainer gives you a solid foundation and a good overarching view of the exam.[Thank you!!! Will check those out. What score did you get in the October test?]
