im just SO. UNMOTIVATED. idk whats wrong with me.

also ack you guys are making me want to retake 70 but i already know exactly what went wrong, so i want to save it for late nov so i can get a good idea of what to expect on test day


If you want a distraction from all this stressing, y'all can help me draft my proposal.

Not a nerd. I am also excited.

Are you guys retaking it then BR or just blind reviewing?


Retaking and might go so far as to do it at my test center in the same desk. Try to recreate some of that rush.


How does one go about doing this? My test center is fairly busy, and I'm not convinced they'd let me/be able to let me use the room.

Quick question - do you guys think it would be worth it to hire a private tutor now for the December test?

Agreed.

I'd have to say I'm most curious about #1

Same here. It seems like quite a bit of us have really competitive scores already (170+), so I'm assuming it's GPA that's dragging us down. at least it is for me. :(

yup :( if i had a 3.9 i wouldnt even bother with a retake, lol


So much this. But tbh I probably would just because of my epic choke. I KNOW I can do better, so I'd probably need to prove that to myself. But man would a 3.9 be reassuring right now...

This is such a weird retake thread. Most of the other ones have a good chunk of kids who struggle with the LSAT but have super high GPAs. Everyone in here seems like absolute LSAT allstars (not to say their GPAs aren't solid as well). Put me in the other camp, 3.97 but limped in at 165.

Does anyone still want to do a review of 70 tonight or has everyone swayed to the Tuesday camp??

Tuesday camp by the looks of it. But that shouldn't stop you from reviewing. At this point, I feel like I get more out of reviews than I do from PTing. (Maybe that's because reviews ALWAYS end with me feeling good.)

Also, in light of the poll. How does one compute his LSDAS GPA from his normal GPA?

Posting my schedule for the weekend so I can be accountable to someone on it.

Tonight (friday) - finishing my review of MLSAT LR books before I am allowed to do anything fun
Tomorrow (Saturday) - taking a 5-section PT64 in semi-real-life test day conditions. then Blind review. Also going to steal the idea of writing out why each answer is right or wrong for LR, PMT
Sunday - Drilling all the types of questions I missed and rereading their section in either MLSAT or trainer. also doing a section or two of LR
Monday - PT70 after work and blind review

If it makes you feel better I was all but ready to sign a contract with the devil for something north of 170-- pen just ran out of ink. :cry:

Damn. Stealing this schedule because I am incapable of making my own.

How many hours a day are you all putting in?


on days that I actually study? 4-6hrs. The last few days? Maybe a hour or two if I'm being generous. I feel like even the 4-6hrs isn't enough but I'm worried about burning out...

You sound like me. 3.9+ and bombed the LSAT with a 165 -- after a 174 PT average. I'm trying to handle the nerves that killed me on test day, but I'm not really sure how.

Was 165 a realistic score for you based on your PTs?

dear gawd if you break 170 youre set

eta: seeing all the 3.9s in this thread is making me MAD. JELLY. i wish i could punch my ug self in the face.


It's ridiculous it even took me a day to deliberate about retaking.

Given my PTing history, my score band is 168-174, so even more evidence in favor of the retake in addition to the obvious ones (HYS, scholarships).
