Have you done some of the rarer PTs, like Superprep Test A, B, C? Also, when I was lurking on the forums last year, I remember seeing an indian version of a PT floating around somewhere. It only has 4 answer choices instead of 5 (I think), but it should still prob work since it's made by the same LSAC testmakers

ETA- found it. Turns out there are 4 of them, so that's pretty awesome.

Does anyone know how accurate law school predictor is? I entered my GPA + current LSAT score and it looks like some kickass T14s are in my "target schools" which makes very little sense right now :P

I don't think that's a good one. Try MyLSN instead.

Haha, I'm tempted to take the Velocity course now too! But alas, no money & no time :( Maybe I'll look into it if I need to retake in Feb (but plz God, let me do well in Dec so I don't have to retake!!)

I mean I could technically get it but Im worried Im going to do it and then need the money for something...

Pretty much. Going to try to get my app done completely this week so I can devote the rest of my time to studying. Signing up and PTing. If I dont PT at 175+ consistently 3 weeks before the exam I might withdraw, otherwise I'll be there.

For LG, I was already going anywhere from -0 to -3, but with Velocity's methods I'm going a lot faster and it is much easier to get -0 than it was before. I'm not one of those naturals who is able to see the inferences immediately up front, so his approach is so so SO much better - especially how I now know how to tackle the order of the questions.

In RC, holy ####! I'm confident that this is what will push me over the 170 mark now. I feel that soon this section will be even stronger than my LR sections.

Then LR, I've already mentioned that this is improving for me. Thank God!


Not sure Velocity is helpful on LGs like we've had the last two times. You needed to infer in the last two LSATs. Velocity tells you that you can do without much inferring. Although, the methods supplementing inferring are good to learn nevertheless!

I use Odyssey for LG which I like, but the full LR/RC videos I could see being very beneficial, wish I could get just the RC & LR for a decent price :/

Thanks! The sample size in MyLSN is really small though. It usually says things like "out of nine people who applied, five get in." So I don't know 0_0.

Wow awesome! That's not bad at all for a first attempt! You should feel motivated to improve rather than defeated because there's a lot of hope there.


Thanks, Dirigo! I agree. I see it as a starting point and not as a reflection of my ability.

Like I said, my LR was just all over the place:

RC: 18/27 (-9 which is great for me but definitely need to improve this!)
LR: 22/25 (-3 :D )
LG: 19/23 (-4 also excellent for where I was at)
LR: 16/26 (-10 :shock: :shock: :shock: )

I'm pretty sure that was the spread.
I only studied for LG and by study I mean skimmed the powerscore bible a few days before. Only made it through 3 and guessed D for all of game 4.
So whatever happens in December, it's a big improvement for me.

yeah sounds like it, who woulda thought... and here Ive been thinking youve been some sort of genius all along whose just been taking him time :P

I really wish I knew what I know now when starting prep... I could have prepared so much better (material wise) for around the same that Ive spent so far -_-

This was all circa 2012. I'm a certified genius now.
Really it was such a mistake but I wasn't even really into law at the time or I would have taken it more seriously, didn't know about TLS, didn't know I should have waited, it didn't occur to me that retaking was an option, etc. I assumed it was like the SAT and I could wing it and do well.
It was so long ago though that I have my 3 takes again. Live & Learn (& hope)

I see what you did there lol but fair enough, can I be a certified genius? What's it take?
