If I didn't like my score this time around (in September) and I retook the test in December but already applied by Thanksgiving... would Law Schools even look at my application if the first score puts me underneath their LSAT floor (the lowest score they are willing to admit)?


I believe schools would see that you were registered for December and hold the application.


Meaning I should register for December by the time I apply? (Which would make sense since that's a few weeks before the exam anyway =P )

ETA: Are all of you applying this cycle? Any retakers? (sorry... I'm a newb =P )

I'm preparing my application materials during the month of October. When I get my score back in late October, I'll know whether I need to retake. If not, I'll finish cleaning up my materials and apply before Thanksgiving. If so, I'll immediately register for the LSAT. I don't know what TCR is on applying before a retake. In any case, December would be my last take so I'm all in for c/o 2018.

Thought process on game 4 in PT68 when I got to the second Q:

Ok let's see here Y in slot 4 ok what could b true let's see what we got
Ok yeah ok looks like there might b a few possibilities here
K cool ok yeah Y in slot 4 ok
Ok yeah no consecutives ok
*feels sweat on forehead*
Ok so maybe I need 2 draw a few diagrams
Ok yeah Idfk wtf could b true here looks like anything

That game was just super labor intensive with no big "aha" inferences

I labored over that game! And then just stared at the last three questions.

This was my thought process:

"Okay I'm done. I can't do this anymore. 7sage video save me!
No... wait! I can do this... just draw some diagrams...
I can't draw diagrams anymore...
YES I CAN!
No... nevermind. Just guess."

I'm a quitter =,(

OKAY, BJS. HOLD THE JUDGEMENT. YES IT IS 2PM. I haven't gotten more than five hours of sleep in over a week.

(I just wanted this use this awesome gif tho. Not actually mad.)

My manager has decided that since I have told her how important taking the "lit GRE" is to me, so that I can apply to "English doctoral programs" and attend "night" school to be the best "writer" ever, she will give me Thursday and Friday off, but without adequately reducing my work load. I think I am more upset about the bullshit I have to deal with tomorrow than about this PT. I am beyond exhausted.

Okay, I'm going to have two more cups of tea, maybe call my dad and cry a little bit to him, have a cigarette, then score really well on this PT and let that carry me over into Thursday.

Hahaha I actually didn't know whether you lived in, like, Kazakhstan or something and it was early morning. No hate for getting good sleep in the week before the LSAT. I'm shooting for 8-9 hours per night this week. Sorry for your shitty work situation. What industry are you in?

UHM, ABSOLUTELY. I don't think anyone has ever noticed that before! She is my favorite of all lawyers to ever exist on prime-time television.

Fashion Hell. The Devil doesn't wear Prada, she wears hate. No, it's not a bad job except that it doesn't allow for me to be trying to LSAT at the same time.

It's so much worse. She was asking me all these questions about it, and I was like "SO clutch that I've actually taken this one." And then I was like, "I hope she doesn't Google the test date," and NOPE, scheduled the same day as the LSAT. Covered by a mile.

Doubtful. I scored at or lower than my diagnostic for a solid month and a half, despite having read Powerscore, Trainer, Manhattan LR, and god knows what else. I was a wreck.

You do your best with what you have. December is your contingency plan, is all of ours, actually. We're in this together!

PT 66 yesterday

Experimental LR from mid 2000's
RC: -4
LR: -2
LG: -2
LR: -2

170

I saw my biggest flaw this go around is in:

Questions that ask about the author of the readings!

Anyone have any tips for these?

Whenever I come on here, I'm overwhelmed by people's kindness =,). Hopefully, we all do well this time (kind of doubtful for me to get a satisfactory score though) and if not, hopefully Law Schools aren't snobs about the multiple scores.
