Yay! Should be +0.05 for me, then!

NOPE. I want to make sure that I'm actually applying for this round. If I do the LSAT in December (God I hope not), then I may defer until next year.

Basically, don't want to apply if I'm not sure I will get at least a 173 on the LSAT.

Oh I am "non-traditional" (aka older) I guess. After college, I worked in SE Asia for a year in a health care NGO and taught English, went to grad school for public health, then worked in HIV counseling. Then the reality of school loans hit (I made the mistake of going to a private school for my grad degree), and I sold my soul to work for the Man for a few years. I kind of have a break in my life in this point, and I'd always wanted to go into public health/health law, so I thought I'd give it a go. So that's me.

True. I should get that done sometime this week.

Currently doing breathing exercises because I am anxious about this PT. Hoping to channel the energy of my LR spirit animal, BillPackets.

Does anyone else do this? Get very nervous before a PT for fear that you will score worse and then be upset about it for days?

DON'T STRESS. That was my diagnostic and I scored a 164, which is a solid 4 points higher than I should have (as evinced by the succeeding three 160-range PTs).

I'd say it's probably good if you stress a bit since you'll be doing the same on the actual thing, this way your prep experience will more closely resemble the real thing

Is it bad if, upon getting 1 163 on a PT, that I celebrate because I still did ok (by Louis standards) yet completely bombed a game (went 1/7 on the last game).

But seriously those were my thoughts about PT 65.

Generous curve b/c tough test.

LR -9 combined (high for me actually and just by glancing at my score sheet I missed quite a few easy ones dag nabbit)
RC -7
LG -7

taking 67 tomorrow morning! Also, the Kaplan in my area is hosting proctored PTs this and next Saturday-- I think if you're able to ignore everything else they'll tell you, it could definitely benefit (especially if it's at the actual test center, like mine).

I read somewhere that the scores are supposed to be released Oct 22. I'm at a conference that day at a location without Internet or mobile data. FML.
