I think the pattern shifted 2 years ago or something like that. So I imagine the wait will be 25-27 days.


I'm sure, but a girl can dream! Also, as long as it's not 32 days I should be okay...

Yeah, 32 days is what freaked me out. I just don't see that happening again, though.

I LOVE NEW/USED CDS!!!!! its one of my favs


i have never done 68.4 in less than 11 14 mins


I think new/used CDs is fine - nailed it at first attempt. But 68.4 is another story. Even after repeating multiple times (>5), it's still hard to keep it under 8:30 mins. :?

ETA: I agree that retakers are indeed very different from first-time takers. I hope this thread survive...Wait, what am I talking about? With Tea + Bee + WTR + all other Oct takers/megapoasters, there is absolutely NO CHANCE that this thread is going to die. :lol:

I'm just about to start posting my daily PTing here since I gets no love from the study group thread. Seriously, everyone there is just doing his/her own thing and the only lively stuff come from the mega posters who were primarily October takers. I miss the October thread.

Sounds like a plan. Just don't dump PT results in here alone. We'll have more to discuss if you bring questions and thoughts from the PT.

Have any of you guys read through Superprep and found it useful?

I'm trying to figure out if it would be worth my time to take A,B, and C so late in the game (especially since I have a handful of newer tests to PT with).

I found Super Prep useful, but if you're limited for time I think you should focus on newer material. In fact, I think people should focus on newer material from the start of their studies, as it gives them more time for reviewing and practicing the type of questions they'll likely face on the real thing.

Thanks for the advice! I will leave it on the bookshelf for now.

Of course, we all shall improve our scores and this becomes moot.


Are u applying with current score or are you holding application all together. Unfortunately my LSAt was such a bomb that I wouldnt be applying to law school at all with my current score , but seems ur in a better spot


I'd probably apply to Cornell and BU/BC with my current score if I could. The issue is that, from what I've read on this board, the schools can see you're retaking by looking at your LSAC profile, so they just keep your app on hold until the new score comes in. (this is assuming you submit it before the test)


Does this imply I should apply to schools I know I could get into with current scores? Apply everywhere now? Or hold?

Just did SuperPrep C tonight. Last time seen it was over a year ago ( though I took the RC as an exp with another PT a few months). I have to say it has a lot weird questions. I think for you maybe it's better to finish your newer PTs first and review thoroughly, and then come back to A B C when you have extra time. Though, one good thing about Superprep is that all 3 PTs come with detailed OFFICIAL explanations. You can get a good idea about how the testmakers approach the questions.

Btw, Game 1 is a curve ball - not too difficult but I had to pause for a min to think about set up( I watched 7sage afterwards, but I did it differently. Anybody else has done this game and have a different set up?)

I'm gonna jump the gun just a bit. On Mylsn, what LSAT score should we use if we have more than one? The highest? The most recent? Average of all the scores?

And, while we're on this topic, what is the general consensus about multiple LSATs at T14 schools. I know they only report the highest LSATs of the student body for USNews but suppose I have three scores: 160, 165, and 170. Will I fare better than someone with only a 165? I'd like to think so. How about someone with only a 166 or 167 or 168 or 169? Surely someone with just a 170 or higher trumps me, no?

ME.


I LAID IT OUT LIKE A LINEAR GAME FML FML FML. i missed all but 1 q on theaters. that one game DESTROYED my score.



I know I'm late on this, but when theaters threw me for a loop as far as not being sure how to set it up, I looked at how all the elements were laid out in the first question and copied it. Usually works when I am unsure about the best approach.
