I scored a 159 on PT 59! lol

The -14 curve helped a lot!

LG: 17/23 (mehh, set-ups were easy, but missed some key inferences)
LR1: 21/26
LR2: 18/25
RC: 16/27 (RC last section is the worst)
Raw: 72

Started reviewing already, but a noted observation is that I tend to score fairly consistently regardless of the curve. It's a matter of making careless mistakes in the moment. Because upon review, I'm usually able to answer a question correctly most of the time.

Happy studying all!

Good job! You've improved a lot over the last couple of weeks.


Thanks. I think the combination of the BP class + hw along with 2-3 PT's a week has been helping me a lot.

Finally hit 170 today! PT30, -4 LG, -5LR1, -4RC, -1 LR2
I guess the curve was generous because that was 87 raw. Still dealing with fluctuations and it all comes down to the games I'm dealt it seems.
To put it into context, I scored 157 a few weeks ago on PT62 - the game section murdered me.

Thanks man, usually I am in the mid 160s. I was studying for it last year and got into the 170s once before but then a bunch of stuff happened in my life and I had to put everything off, so i just started again this last September. Where are you PTing and how are you doin so far?

EDIT - For those wondering, the materials i'm using - LSAT Trainer, Manhattan LR, Powerscore LGB and watching videos from both Dave Hall @ Velocity and 7sage

Nice! You will definitely get a 170+ in December! I started off with a 136 in July to most recently a 159 as of today. Looking to aim for a 163+ on test day!

Just don't make the mistake that I made in September! Do not think that "I don't feel comfortable with LG, but, I am doing reasonably well in PTs, so as long as that is the case, no need to worry". Talking from experience.
