Felt pretty blah during the whole thing. I just kept telling myself "whatever, just do it so you can say you actually did something today."

PT 42
LG: -1
LR: -3
RC: -3
LR: -3
Raw: 91/101
Scaled: 171 :shock:

I'm in complete shock. I would not have been surprised to see a 160. Shows that I am awful at predicting performance (other than for LG). This is definitely higher than my average of mid to high 160's and I definitely did better on RC than I normally do. Remains to be seen if this is an outlier or if I'll be consistently scoring a few points higher than my previous average.

A takeaway for y'all. I know that taking a couple of days off seems like a horrible use of time with only 45 days left, but giving your brain a rest can oftentimes be a good thing.
I woke up today and told myself that if I don't do well in December, I'll retake in February. No big deal. I'm viewing even showing up to the test and getting any score as an accomplishment in and of itself. As a person, I'm way too prone to quit things when the going gets tough. I told myself to stop putting so much pressure on myself to be perfect because when it comes to the LSAT, being perfect is simply not going to happen for me or any of us. AND THAT'S OKAY.
Hope everyone had/is having a great day!


This was so sweet. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

In all honestly, the entire test is a blur in my mind. I have no memory of the questions at all. Maybe I have some sort of subconscious memory of the questions, but I haven't been thinking over what I've done wrong or anything on specific points.


This happens to me already on PT's....becomes a blur. lmao

Damn, Dirigo. Keep up dat hustle. You get a *poptart* for the good work! (Mist, I'll bring you one too. Hope you're feeling better post-surgery!)

I agree with you on taking a day off every now and then. During prep for Sept. test, it helped against potential burn out and it paid off in my scores.

That's why I see no problem in retaking preptests that you've already done in previous prepping.

yeah, Even though I might recognize a RC passage or LR stimulus, I still have to work just as hard the second time to find the structure/argument core.

ETA: Assuming I haven't seen it in 2+ months.

Agree 100%. Took my first PT to see where I was after not looking at anything for 3 weeks between the September test and today.

PT 41
LR: -2
LG: -2
LR: -2
RC: -1
Raw: 94/101
Scaled: 175

Actually my best score yet by 4 points. You don't forget this stuff in a day or two (or even 3 weeks of premature celebratory margs), so taking a day off to let yourself take care of real life things is a really good idea.

Part of me is so mad at myself for completely dropping the ball on the September test, because I know the material and I know how to take the LSAT, but I let the environment and test-day jitters get to me. On the other hand, I still know it, and hopefully I'll be able to put it into good use in December.

That's an awesome score, dissent. Was September your first try?

This is impressive. No prep since September, and you jumped from 171 to 175?
I can't wait to find out this weekend how 3 weeks of beer and ice cream and zero minutes of LSAT prep has paid off for me.

How dare you one-up me!
Nevertheless, awesome job! September seemed like such a fluke for so many people so hopefully you'll get the score you want this time around.


Congrats you guys! Those are great scores. I'm sure you can keep them in that range or even improve :)

Yeah, I don't get it, but I won't question it. tbh my October was pretty much queso, margs, and not thinking about logic, and it's worked out so far.
