This is possibly the most cynical thing ever written in this thread. Also, hopefully it won't suck at all.

really hard to tell given how much has been written in this thread.

Personally I was hesitant to post ITT with my scores - if you look at my early posts I think I talk mostly about my score in relation to "my average" and say vague things about RC and not beyonce. But I wanted to keep myself honest and post whenever I took a PT so that I wouldn't slack off.

It's exciting to share your progress with people who are going through the same thing. Plus I'm not sure how much my family wants to hear me talk through my specific areas of weakness and the nuances of specific tests (I'm looking at you PT62).



Grey, you are one of the few I actually believe. It's just not probable that all of these people are scoring in the ranges they are posting, at least under every condition of test day minus anxiety.

Hahaha I think the reason we are spending so much time on TLS is that we all have full-time, boring AF jobs.

Why anyone would boast about fake practice test scores is beyond me, but you have no reason to trust any of us, so that's fair. It doesn't really matter though. We'll get what we get next Saturday, and we'll all have to live with that. Or retake.

FWIW newbie. This is how my days go. You can ask other people in the thread, the story hasn't changed:

Wake up- immediately pour my preworkout.
Go to campus food court, get 6 inch sub and drink preworkout with it.
Immediately walk to the gym, workout, drink protein shake.
Go home, pop a stimulant, shower.
While waiting for stimulant to kick in, ill play a round of nhl 15
Go to library (usually by 11, i'm here right now drilling)
Leave library 8-12 hours later. Yes, I'm not exaggerating.
Take zzzquil so I can sleep

I'm pretty sure everyone else has been pretty consistent too. We're all working our asses off. The last thing we need is some pessimist telling us that we'll be disappointed when we dont hit our goal. Who does that?

"I hope you never reach your dreams you complete stranger who I don't even know."

There a mirror you can look into?

End rant. I hardly ever get real in this thread, but shit like that pisses me off. Even if people wanna lie about their PT, let them. If that increases their optimism even by the slightest, then what the fuck is the harm in that.

I personally don't see the value in boasting to a bunch of strangers on an internet forum about scores you get on things that don't count, but tbf that doesn't mean nobody does.



Me neither. Trust me. But it's nonetheless the case. Just because you belong to this study group who is taking the test in a week, doesn't mean that you are scoring in that range. I applaud the person who posts every once in a while saying that they got a 164, their personal highest. The truth is that most of the discussion is centered around a few individuals who spend so much time on here that I would be surprised if they were scoring in the high 160's. I am calling B/S, but all of you regulars can feel free to prove me wrong in a month by posting a pic.


It's a pretty self-selecting bunch here -- not just w/r/t this board in general, but also w/r/t those who post about their scores in threads like this. I too applaud the brave souls who are happy to report their 164 on a PT and note it's their personal best given what scores others report, but at the same time have no problem believing that others hit the mid to high 170s regularly.

Wow. Your days seem hectic. I'm surprised you only eat a 6-inch, you sound more like someone who enjoys a footlong. Any way, I'm sure your studying will get you great score. Or it won't.

Yeah TBH I believe it too. If I can do it, I'd be a pretty big sack of turds if I assumed than no one else could. It's not like I'm some sort of smart person (see: GPA).

If someone posted that they had a 140 diagnostic and then came back two weeks later and was like "k i totes studied and my last PT was like a 179. Omg u guys i'm goin to YALE"

I'd probably not believe that.

Oh okay you big basket of douchenozzles, you all need to let this roll off your backs.

If the Quigs doesn't want to believe you, who cares. Just prove him wrong next saturday. Skepticism is generally a good thing, let's not discourage it....
