...but my GPA is so low.

It's actually mostly because I want to move once and live in DC permanently - lots of family in the area, plus my SO is aiming for a professorship at one of the universities in DC. (This is also why I'd take GULC at sticker, much to the chagrin of everyone on TLS.)

going into next week my prep becomes a PT 2-3 times a week, with review. The remaining days will be spent heavily drilling whatever was a weakness in the previous days PT plus games practice, cause I am still uber slow and sometimes sloppy/careless. I've been able to bring my LR down to -1 or -2 per section, hoping to have it to -0 by test day by drilling the hardest of each type. My RC is down to below -5 and I hope to improve a bit more. Games will make or break my hopes for a 170, so I am giving the cambridge packets a run-through this month.

I hope you're all closer to your goals than I am. Its gonna be a rough month, but I am determined to get these last 6-7 points. If I can turn games into a strength, it is well within reach.

Hahaha I know! I will never have any TLS respect again, no matter how many banners I make. Obviously I'm trying to get a 180 and $$$. I know GULC is stingy though, and I also know they have a ridiculous ED boost for splitters:

I haven't improved it yet! It's like the NFL - everyone (except Tim Tebow) can win in practice, but you have to produce on the field for it to matter.

I've got a ton of ties in Dallas, so I think I'll be in pretty good shape regardless. I really love austin though, and the value/prestige of the school along with Austin's COL just make it so desirable

even more reason to avoid the humblebrag. i dont even like to talk about law school/the lsat with anyone at all since it is so high stakes and is almost purely a numbers game

I think I ran into what is, in my opinion, the hardest game I've ever done. I've done the dino toy game, bus stop game, circle games, diagram games, june 2014 games, etc. But I truly think that PT 30 G2 is the hardest one I've ever done. I'm even watching 7sage's video on it and I can't follow at all. I've never had that problem before. I'm really good at games but holy shit that one is a monster.

I feel the same way, I feel awkward telling people which schools I plan to apply to, because if I get a 158 it will be real embarrassing.

Wtf? The question was where would we gun for if we got our average score. Everyone then is humblebragging. I'm pretty sure you're just an alt.

The answering machine one? It's just a sequencing game. What did you think was so hard about it?

It's a hybrid game with multiple, multiple combinations and really the only way of getting it would be to understand the contrapositive correctly.

I thought it was simple at first, but once I saw the wording of the "at most one speaker can speak multiple times" "one speaker can speak 3 times." And then the rest of the straight forward rules, I just thought it was incredibly difficult.
