Welcome! :D
And no, it's not too much. Classes alone aren't sufficient to reach your full potential.



Thnx. Now the next step is trying not to confuse my study schedules!!
just realized most ppl study all sections at once instead of mastering one at a time... why couldnt I have found you guys sooner?!?!


and try my best to sleep. Not an easy feat being from New Orleans (not partying tho, just up w random adrenaline)

PT 61 timed. Proctor didn't even give us a 15-25 second break in between sections. He just said "end section x, begin the next section" boom. Section breakdown was RC-LR-RC (exp)-LG-LR.


Mine did the same thing! It was even faster pace than the pace of the real LSAT when I took it in June! But I figure if I can get used to that then it will make test day that much easier!


Yes! I would say one aspect of any live prep course is being able to experience fully timed and proctored 5 section PT's. How big is your class going to be? Apparently, only 10 people signed up for my class. LOL


There were 16 in my class on Saturday. I expected more people, but I'm not complaining! Means I get more of my questions answered versus a lecture hall environment.

Yeah! I was expecting like a 30+ person class so this is definitely good for us! My instructor seems like a chill dude. He got a 173 on the real thing but he also got a 179 on a PT while hungover the next morning. LOL.

Before class at 6PM, I plan on watching every single video explanation for all the questions. lol

Good morning everyone!

Will be joining you all after a rather disastrous performance on Saturday. (Freaked out and also didn't take the possibility of hammering into account while doing the PTs).

I want to go 'TLS hard' this time and am reevaluating my study tools. What app do you use to simulate the environment at the test centre?

Welcome to this thread. In addition to obviously keeping it timed, take into account other factors such as noise. Try doing some in a variety of places like coffee shops, libraries with kids running around, your house/apt,etc.

I like it, has noise setting so you can have distractions and can set it for different times (like if you want to get used to having 30 min sections so when you do 35 it seems nice and long)

My coworker just brought me one, plus I already had my usual morning espresso, so now I'm so wired that I'm zooming through LR drilling like I'm possessed haha

That would be awesome... if I drank coffee lol
