Over the past 4 PTs I've gone on average -1 on LG -7 on RC and around -15 on LR. Is my LR or RC more of a problem and which should I put more emphasis on for drilling?

What are your favorite nonfiction books? I need more reading material.

Btw, I did PT 40 today, timed, with bubble sheet:

PT 40 - 176

LR1: -0
LG: -2
LR2: -2
RC: -1

I definitely struggled on the second LR. I'm not sure if that was due to fatigue or if the section was just harder (I'm going to thoroughly review it tomorrow and figure out what exactly went wrong). And holy shit, modern RC sections are insane! I had to more or less guess on a couple questions as the clock ran out, and I felt incredibly stressed. As you guys may know, I've practiced with mostly older tests, and on those an RC might have two or three tricky questions... this time, half the questions were like that. I'm worried that I'm not at all prepared for modern RC sections.

I see from my spreadsheet that's it's almost exactly two years since I first started thinking about LSAT prep and took my cold diagnostic, so in case anyone is curious, here are all of my timed PTs to date:

Image

How much studying have I actually done in that time? Honestly not nearly as much as I should have, maybe 1-2 months of serious prep in total. I didn't start prepping until last summer (and even then in only a very undisciplined manner), and then life would always get in the way, or I'd take a PT, get a score I considered satisfactory, and decide that I could put off studying for another few months. But of course with the test only ~50 days away, that's no longer an option.

So for applications it seems like there's this "LSAC Report" that they say could take a few weeks to process. From what I'm gathering it seems like this report is requested by the schools after they receive your application... So my question is, considering its best for us to get our apps out ASAP, like the day we get our scores back, does that mean that even if we send them out the day of receiving scores, the schools won't actually start reviewing them until they request and receive this "Report?" Or is there something I'm missing there?


I have no idea how this works. I wish I knew. All these unanswered questions are making me nervous.

I just realized don't we have to get passport photos or something? There's all this random stuff I haven't thought about. And I should probably start saving up money if I want to apply to a large number of schools. I hear you can get application fee waivers easily, but I think you still have to pay LSAC to send your information.

@Mintberry: Thanks, my LG especially has come a long way. I'm going to keep drilling and do a lot more PTs though because I'm aiming for 177+.

180 on your 6th ever timed test.

You're fine, dude. Finer than fine. Congrats.

Since cost of LSAT registration is up, I'm curious if the LSAC application fee is up, along with CRS registration.

Edit for clarity.

I'm not a fan of either team, so that makes it easier to just glance up between games.

When does the LSAT generally start/when do people usually arrive to the testing center?
