Going over my PT. A few sets of LG, a couple sets of RC. Some LR Cambridge stuff.
I may try to PT again but I'll most likely push that until Friday or Saturday.


I'm thinking ab doing the lsat trainer, still haven't done it, but wonder if it's worth the time at this point? Maybe I should jump right into LG, but I'm po and can't buy any extra crazy expensive materials atm

I'm from all over (military kid). Consider myself a Texan though :) Now I'm in New England. I was in NOLA for Mardi Gras last year, it was awesome!!! I just ate nonstop the whole time I was there. I need to make another trip over there sometime soon b/c I miss the food so much


The food is literally why I can't get skinny. We have the best food. I used to think I was biased, but no, everyone who has been here or lived here and moved away says it too.

Hey! Just waiting for it to strike the appropriate hour so I can continue to perform my nightly ritual.

Yeah, me too. Doing cardio for the first time in almost two years. :shock:

Also, I forget who was struggling with 65.1.17, but if you want to talk out why it's D over A, we're here for you!

What are your averages for sections? Weaknesses? Strengths?


tbh, I never took any averages for sections...tls is the first time I saw ppl even mentioning it, but I will look at my past tests and get back...LR seems to be my strong suit, and RC is hit and miss...either all or nothing. LG is a strong point when I'm drilling it regularly.

Navy kid here so moved around a lot too. Even though my dad has since retired, I find myself moving a lot. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence in my mind.

My mom was a navy kid, and she moved a lot as a result. She raised me as a single mom and we moved a lot mostly within this state), i think bc of her inability to stay still. Now, I've lived in the same house for longer than I have ever lived anywhere ever, and I am itching to move!! [/quote]

I think you're right on this one, bc I spent the majority of my time reading study material in September, and I really think I crippled myself for not spending equally as much time PT'ing

IMO good thought process + lots of practice -> good timing

When I first started LG I had a pretty good thought process but it took me 10 min. for each game. After a while, the inferences come a lot more quickly. Now, I can finish L1 & 2 games in 4-5 mins and L3 & 4 in 6-8 mins. You'll get there, don't worry. It just takes a little time, but once you've got it, you've got it.



OMG.....Now I feel super shameful for wasting my precious morning time

That's not an answer. Is your September score still on hold?

Haha, I thought he was expressing my inner cry in life... " what are numbers???" i.e. why do we even need them? LOL... yes, still on hold :cry: I'm honestly wondering if i should just cancel, but so far I just can't seem to bring myself to do that.

It's all about striking a balance and catering to your individual needs. In some respects, drilling is more important than overloading your schedule with PTs.


I didn't drill at all before. I guess I need to get some cambridge stuff to do that most effectively. I Just read the material, and took a test or in like 2 cases a partial test.

PTs really just serve two purposes: providing a snapshot of your current weaknesses, so that you can address them before the next PT, and simulating the test day experience.
