Should I be taking this? Did the rest of you all take PT 72 or are you planning to?


Taking it this Saturday! It seems a lot of people are taking it on the Thursday before the test, which seems like an awful, awful idea. I'll do my last timed PT on Sunday (PT71) and will do PT68 untimed on next Thursday.


i maintain that the 70s are enough different than the late 60s to warrant taking

Why would 72 on the Thursday be so bad of an idea? Disheartening? Will it crush me? Maybe I'll take it Sunday or Monday/Tuesday instead

and sfogs I hate those days where everyone around you just drops the ball. GET IT TOGETHER PEOPLE.


Okay, glad I'm not the only one. First of all, not trying to freak myself the eff out by taking a really difficult test. Second, definitely not paying for that pleasure.

And, YES PLEASE. I don't have time to care about this right now. All caring must be re-directed to the LSAT!

Maybe I'll take it this Friday then, so I have a few days to recover from any possible beatdown that results

Dasani, what did you find most challenging about the test? I took this one today too.


LR without a doubt. So many tricky answer choices. I sat for June so I thought I messed up LR because of nerves but I chose a lot of the same answer choices today. Also, a lot of the questions I got wrong (like 4 of them) happened because I chose the correct answer first, erased, and chose a wrong one. LG was below average and RC was average difficulty, imo.

My last PT will be PT 71, and I plan on taking it on Thursday.

I'll have plenty of fresh, untouched PTs from 53-72 to use for a Dec retake if I need to.

LR has seemed remarkably stable over time to me, so I'm anxious to get to 70s LR.

I agree for the most part. I got tripped up by some of the RC questions, but nothing out of range, and some of the answers I missed are so insanely obvious it baffles me. I would be fine with a test whose difficulty is spread along the same lines as this test if it has the curve to match. Harder LR definitely plays to my strengths.


Yeah I like how the LG difficulty was spread out for this test. I agree with you that LR1 was more difficult than LR2.

Bought two of those (my old one was dull) plus 48 Ticonderoga Blacks at Staples last week. Last year I used some Walmart pencils and a cheapo Dollar Tree sharpener. #NEVERAGAIN

IT WAS A 173!

And I'm not avoiding it B/C I'm worried about the score, I'm just too lazy to acquire it and I'm not sure I'll even have the time to take it.

This graph really encapsulates my frustrations at this point. I feel like I haven't really made any progress. Especially in the last few weeks, my PTs have been all over the map, which leaves me really queasy for test day. (Note: three of the 180s are experimental sections that I put into LSATqa to stay current on my question analytics and it excludes PT70, a 175, that LSATqa didn't have in the system)

ETA: Here's a graph of my sections across the tests. Same thing - a ton of variation.
