That. Is. Awesome.

Huge congrats to you. Keep grinding and you could very well see a score near that on test day.


Thank you :)

I appreciate it. I'm hoping for a 175+ so we will see...

One of the guys I studied with briefly last year had great advice for those hitting the 180 on PTs. STOP worrying about the "score". ONLY look at the raw score/number you missed, (even if you end up grading by hand or something). I can see the stress of meeting a 180 expectation on test day as causing a lot of problems if you don't prepare for them in advance.

Thought I'd join in the fun. Took PT 52 this morning and got my second perfect raw score. However, I did get a -1 on my experimental LR section. I suppose that'll be my new goal.

The problem is that we sometimes change the exact day of the PT/review so we just use the schedule below as a base. We're usually on Skype every night though so we're always communicating. We have about 8 people total with an average of 3.5 people reviewing together every night. We had a really nice review session last night (we should probably call it a tutoring session lol, lead by Jack Reagen- thanks again for all the help!). We all have access to the google calendar link so whoever wants to join I'll add to the list and whatever change we make is reflected on there automatically. We also had Christine from Manhattan join us for a little last night and she gave us access to one of the manhattan rooms. It's really nice for reviewing games and just an overall better program to study in groups. Whoever wants to join our review session of PT 55 Friday night, let me know and I'll PM you the link to the room.

I'm happy to help and I'll try to jump on the review sessions as much as possible. If I'm not able to make it then feel free to PM me if you have any questions that you didn't get worked out.

Every one is doing amazing today!!!! I thought I would join in on the fun... just took PT 54 and got my highest score ever!
RC: -2
LR1: -2
LG: -0
LR2: -1

Raw 96
Scaled 176

I had taken this one about 8 months ago and scored a 163 (ironically, one of my worst PT scores last time around), so I've made some big improvements since then. I'm afraid that this score isn't very accurate though. I definitely remembered a few of the RC passages and some of the LR.

How long have you been studying?
This is my third go around (158 and 160 on my first two)... 160 down 9 freaking points from my PT average of 30 tests (Don't get sick on the day of guys!). Actual time studying? On and off for about 2 years.

Current Score?
I've taken 6 PTs this time around... 168-176 (171 average)

Score on fresh tests?
Don't know. Haven't taken any this time around yet

I went -3 in LG on 54 because of game 2. I tried making hypos for it and when I saw that they turned into like 7 different ones, I freaked out and thought I had made a mistake or that I was missing an inference (so I skipped it and moved on, wasting like 4 mins). I just redid the game and realized that we're able to answer the questions without hypos with no problem. I guess I should just continue without hypos/inferences when I don't see any from now on. Especially since the other 3 games could have been done in under 8 mins each.

How long have you been studying?
First test, I studied for about 4 months. This time I started in February, so another 3.

Current score range: 172-180

Fresh tests vs used tests:
I just took my first fresh test last week, and it was a 175, so I think I'm fairly consistent between used and new tests. I'm aiming for anything 170+ on test day. However, I dropped 5 points from my PT average on the December LSAT, so trying to get my score range as high as possible before then.
