I too thought you were a female. I apologize

Maybe a dinosaur. Or a dumbbell. Or steak.
Or yourself!


Those are some manly suggestions


I understand men really well. That's why I'm single.

Being single while studying for the LSAT as intensely as we are is a good thing!!! I had a girlfriend last time I took it and it just added to the stress (the feeling that we weren't spending enough time together and that I was too focused on the test). I would often feel guilty and hang out with her when I should have been studying.

Maybe I'm just trying to make myself feel better about being single though :)

172 on a second retake of 70 (168 on actual test and 173 on first retake) with -4 on a LG section that I scored -0 on the other times. I haven't been drilling LG but at least I'm aware what I'll emphasize before Monday.

Read the questions first, skip the general questions but notate anything specific in the passage. Helps a TON!!

Ugh! I had one where I got lost and couldn't find the test site. Unfortunately, it's an entirely possible scenario as I've never been to the city where my test is located before.

Can you do a dry run? This is terrifying to me.

PT 55.5 (June 2007)

Obvs this is not representative bc I have taken this PT before and this material is everywhere in the prep books. I also took it at 9pm which wasn't smart bc the tiredness hit me HARDCORE in my last section. Beginning to regret not doing more endurance training. My schedule didn't really leave room for it but i still wish I would have.

LG: -0
LR 1: -0
LR 2: -2
RC: -3

Raw: 95
Score: 174

Was kind of hoping I'd 180 this one, but oh well. Dat curve. :x

That's the plan. I'm getting in a day early, and theoretically already have transport lined up to get me to and from the test center. So my real biggest fear is that my ride will forget me and I'll be stuck scrambling for a taxi at the last minute. I also don't know if my cell phone will work in that country (theoretically it should, but others have had issues in the past) so calling to remind the driver might also be a problem.

I'm trying not to let it stress me out, but the LSAT nightmares seem to suggest I'm not doing a very good job.

Yeah I should definitely do that ASAP. Makes it feel so real.

I'm taking my test at Northwestern. Trying to get off the NU waitlist. Probably jinxing it.

Someone told me that my June 2013 LSAT info and answer sheet wouldn't be available anymore because it was past 6 months from the test date but...
I just checked and it is....
If that helps anyone with looking up old tests you took.

Sorry for triple posting but I HAD to point this out from the LSAT rules:

Test supervisors are directed to dismiss from the test center any test taker discovered using, or in possession of, any type of electronic device such as electronic timers, beeping watches, alarm watches, calculator watches, electronic cigarettes, cellular phones, beepers, pay phones, pagers, headsets, photographic or recording devices, listening devices, personal digital assistants, personal computers, and iPods or other media players. Violations will be grounds for score cancellation. LSAC and test center staff assume no responsibility for personal items. The only timing device that test takers are allowed to have in their possession at LSAT test centers is an analog wristwatch.

Yah, if you can FIND a pay phone, you cannot use it during the break (i think thats what they are getting at).

The break is for puking in the bathroom, not phone calls, anyway.

So, I take it relationship did not work out?

No need to make yourself feel better, from what I've seen of you-you see like a pretty cool guy with a nice personality ... Don't believe you have issues in that department.


Thanks :) I'm sure we'll all REALLY get to know each other once the waiters thread starts rolling. For all you know I could be a 4 foot tall, 300 pound, soul-patch wearing man

LR: -0
LG: -0
RC: -2

Raw 98
Scaled 180

I also did two sections from PT 68 and went -1 on LG and -0 on LR


And with that, I'm checking out of TLS until after the test.


Right now, I'm feeling pretty good I can hit my mark of 172+. I'm going to review a bit more today, drill some tomorrow morning, and then that's it until Monday.

I've spent nearly two years looking over this test, writing out explanations, watching 7Sage videos, taking PTs, going through PS/MLSAT/Trainer etc. This is my third and final take, so whatever score I get will be my last. Regardless, it's been great to be on TLS and have the guidance, camaraderie, and support you all have provided. Two years ago, I never would have thought I could get 170+ on the LSAT. Now I'm hoping to get in the mid 170s. It may not happen, but no matter what, I think I've done all I could to earn my highest possible score.

To everyone ITT: remember you have studied way more than the overwhelming majority of people going into the test on Monday. You have prepared for this moment, and, if you studied smartly, you have all the tools you need to destroy the test. Don't get overwhelmed when you get stuck on a games question; take a breath and check the items you have left. When RC isn't making sense, remember to see the forest through the trees. Critically evaluate LR stims and attack the answer choices.

We have everything we need to get that 99th percentile score. Now let's get it.


I love you all, and I will see you in the waiter's thread.

Good luck everyone..


Unbelievable!!! You are about as ready as anyone could possibly be
