seriously. i remember, leading up to oct, i woke up each day and immediately thought "i'm going to study ____ and drill ______ and take ______." now its like... "if i procrastinate this until tomorrow, just how much more fucked will i be? im already pretty fucked anyway..."

nil, breh. just like how my plans to finish velocity lg in five days is laughable.


It's really, really sad..

*Feel unreasonably accomplished*

I had high hopes last night and all I ended up doing was one RC section, which I didn't even finish. I try to set these ambitious schedules but I react with high school diligence.


I WILL GET THROUGH THIS TRAINER CHAPTER!

I'm not going to give myself an option tomorrow morning. I have 70 printed out, and I am going to force myself to get through it one way or another.

I bought trainer only for RC. I'm soo upset to see RC is in the second half of the book. Now I'm determined to get through the first half asap given skipping isn't an option 'cuz I feel I might miss something useful and wind up looking like an idiot later.

Lol. This is so funny 'cuz I feel LSAT has forced me to evolve and abandon the high school diligence that let me sail through college. Did other people here think they were the masters of efficient laziness until the LSAT?

I skipped to RC and am still finding it loads useful. Working through LG in the Trainer now and I am finding it kind of weird. But that might just be because I'm a double-layer sequencing guy instead of cramming other info into one slot.

That's it. I'm gonna cram the non RC stuff today/tomm and be done with RC by Monday. Possible? If yes, then probability?

Not sure. It's a dense book. I am not touching LR in it though because I got Manhattan. I think you wouldn't be doing yourself much of a service cramming the non-RC stuff through. I am even splitting the RC into the two sections (did the first last week doing the second this week).

Maybe people would have an easier time if they could take a month or so off completely (like between June and October) before having to start up again.

Also it seems like a lot of people ITT underperformed way below their super high PT average so at this point it's not like there's really anything new to learn.

not me though so I really need to step it up ugh

I went through all the Manhattan books (even RC). Their LR and LG are awesome and I feel I have those two sections pretty much down. It's all about staying focused and not getting bogged down on any one question on PT/test day as far as LR and LG go for me.

I'm up to 85th page in trainer and the LR instruction/drills are fine and I appreciate a slightly different perspective, but it's ultimately redundant.

Yes!!! I honestly feel there's nothing left to learn about LR/LG anymore what with 7sage, trainer/Manhattan. I neglected RC so badly my first two times taking LSAT. LR was a big priority then. Not so much now.

I just want to get past the trainer so I can start PTing again. So anxious to PT regularly again.

Do you guys think its a fluke that I got a 174 on PT41? It was fresh but idk if it was just easy... other than the circular game. I never broke 170 on a PT before October and only took two late 60s again (getting 171 and 173 last week which I just figured were a product of retesting) other than studying.

If this really is the power of reading the question stem first then I hate entire summer self who thought PS was a godsend.

I took PT41 like a day after I found out my score and I scored a 170. Granted, I hadn't done any LSAT since the test, 170 was actually in the range of my PT average going in. I feel that for those that have not practiced with reading stem first, doing so will have an immediate positive impact on scores for the vast majority. So, no, I don't think your 174 was a fluke.

I would advise that you don't read stem too slowly though. Skim it. Especially on the wordy ones that ask for role of "blahblahblahblah" and such.

Be proud. As I've stated before, 40s LR is a mindfuck, and not to mention 41 has the bizarre circle game.

Would like to write out explanations for every answer choice on my wrongs in RC 57 as well as any q's I circled in LR. Has anyone does this for 57, for reference?

Hopefully I can keep it up on PT 42 on Monday. Can we consider circle games irrelevant at this point?
