any ideas on what i can do about lsat test? help!!!!

Postby orzo » Sat Jan 24, 2015 2:53 am

I am hoping someone can help me on what to do..I could use some advice. I am suppose to take the lsat in feb 2015.I have been studying on and off since lsat feb then got serious studying in sept. I took an online course but I have had trouble applying the methods to the test. I also have tutoring, but i can't seem to get higher than 151. I would like to get at least higher maybe 5 or 6 points higher and be consistent. However, my score fluctuates between 145 and 150. I don't know what to do..Do i bite the bullet and hope for the best.. or cancel and take it in june? I am not applying late for this coming school year, so application deadline is not an issue.. I am ready to cry over this, I wish to go to law school but I need to conquer this test. So quitting or some other option is not possible. any ideas? is it a good idea to take the test to "see how it is"? I have had people tell me that but I don't know if that is wise advice?!

It's unwise to take the course if you're not ready (sub-150 isn't ready). I would postpone until June.

And what materials have you used? Which online course? Which prep books?
How have you been studying?
Really walk us through what you've been doing so we can find the disconnect between time put in and lack of results.

Study for June or just don't go. Assuming a decent GPA, ~165 is the cutoff for law school being a smart choice... I might even say 170. </realtalk>

Definitely postpone. You can get your score up by June without a problem and there's no reason to take February unless you're just trying to negotiate scholarships for this cycle.

ETA: I dont 100% agree with the post above about 165 being the cutoff but it is a general consensus. And I'm retaking a 164...so take that as you may. Lol
