Guys, I just realized that I only went through 2/3's of the Trainer back when I started studying in the summer. Going to reread the entire LR and RC portion this upcoming week. Perhaps I'll see a score boost when I PT next weekend.

One mistake I made before September was that I PT'd under the exact same conditions every time. I tried to mimic my test day routine as closely as possible. For two months leading up to the test, I woke up at the same time, ran the same loop, ate the same breakfast, did the same warm up, took the test in the testing center at 8:30 on the dot. I was crazy about keeping everything exactly the same.

Here's why it was a mistake: I only learned how to take a PT in exactly one mental state. Then test day rolls around, I'm nervous as fuck, and my entire practice routine is suddenly irrelevant. So I'm correcting that problem for December. I'm going to take PTs under many different conditions (less sleep, no exercise, after work, lots of food, no food, splitting headache, etc.) and in many different places (coffee shops, libraries, in my apartment, under the GW Bridge, etc). The point is to become flexible enough to not be thrown off by the test day twilight zone mindfuck. So change it up as much as you can.

GT can u command yourself to get a splitting headache

Step one: Drink tequila until I pass out.
Step two: Wake up early and avoid water.
Step three: Take PT in Starbucks next to a group of uggs and yoga pants sipping pumpkin spice lattes and swapping stories about their respective one night stands.


This sounds like perfect PT conditions.

This is an amazing idea. Please tell me your TC is Queens.


Brooklyn College. Are you in NY, GT???

Not too late to change test centers. Get on that.


Hey! Not too far off. Yeah I'm in NYC. I heard Queens is a better TC, though. So better get on that.

Alternatively, we could throw a metro area post LSAT party for TLSers.

ouch trying to cut me out... Im only a short train ride away

Wow... I just scored -11 on a single LR section. I've never done that poorly. Not on my diagnostic, nothing. I'm usually around -2 to -4 range.

Even after blind review, I was still down around -7.

Slept well, etc. I felt great going in. Pretty alarming.

JGoody lives under the GW bridge.

EDIT: GT, do you live in Westchester? I thought JGoody lived in the Island.

Given the potential trends of post-grad employment, you just might have to...

Could've been just a particularly difficult test?
