Which one of the following is an assumption that the poll requires?

The poll options aren't perfect, but I'm surprised by the number of <= 3.5 applicants... are the majority of us really below every T14 median, and maybe even every 25th? If October goes well, this thread is going to have a ton of splitters.

Pretty sure I read that scores should be out by Oct 23rd, so that should be plenty of time. That would also fit with the 3 week turnaround that LSAC claims.


Is that the expected release date? It seems earlier than usual.

If it's true, I will be surfing in Panama when I get my results. Assuming I manage to get near Wifi, the last week of my vacation will either be drinking my sorrows or celebrating.

It's showing that the score email date is the 29th on my LSAC account.

Okay, that makes more sense. So we'll probably see them anywhere from the 27th to the 30th. Exciting!

Well, I've got my transcripts into LSAC, my letters of rec squared away and my personal statement all but finished. Apps are just about ready to go out the door. One last box to check: demolish the LSAT. 8)

I'm requesting days off from work today in order to take additional PTs and wanted to see if there was any advice on whether my last PT should be:
    (a) Sept 29, Tues. (4 days before)
    (b) Sept 30, Wed. (3 days before)
    (c) Oct 1, Thurs. (2 days before)

I figure that I'll take my last PT, review, and drill any weaknesses during the next 1-3 days. I just can't decide which of these is best. Bleh. Someone help me.

I think my PT schedule, as of now, is:
    - Sept 4 (Fri)
    - Sept 7 (Mon)
    - Sept 9 (Wed)
    - Sept. 12 (Sat)
    - Sept. 16 (Wed)
    - Sept. 20 (Sun)
    - Sept. 24 (Thurs)
    - Sept. 26 (Sat)
    - Sept. 27 (Sun) (or timed sections of my worst section on this date)

ETA: The fact that I'm stressing over I'll take a PT 2, 3, or 4 days before really shows my neurosis level at the moment.

I would do day 3 or 4.

So for June, I took a PT 2 days before the real thing. Got the lowest score out of all of my tests. That was in the back of my mind the entire time leading up to the test, and I had kinda wished I had a "shot at redemption" to get my confidence back, but I scheduled so many PTs towards the end of my prep that I didn't have time/was burned out.
If you do 3 or 4 days out, you have time to get your confidence back.


That isn't something I'd even considered. Thanks!!

Just took PT 63.First full length I've taken since June after focusing on the power score books.

Went 21, 17(games), 24, 24(RC) ... 86

167

Missed 3 super easy game questions that I shouldn't have

I had taken this test before way back in April, so not sure how accurate this is. Anyone have any experience retaking previous tests?

Aiming for 167-171

scores on pt retake are not very representive unlike fresh timed pts. even slightly remembering one or two questions per section can make a huge difference in the score.

Just finished PT58:

163
LR1: -3
RC:-5
LG:-8 (skipped game 3 and made educated guesses on game 4)
LR2:-4

Finally made it through both LR sections in time. Better than the 158 a week ago, still lots of drilling to do with LG. Really wishing I'd taken summer off from classes to study...

No, you just need to practice more.


Thanks for the encouragement, but I don't think I could ever increase my efficiency. Maybe I simply lack spatial recognition ability in a time crunch.
