Half the time I BR, my score goes down. I don't do any true BR anymore.

Yeah. Oh well, all the more motivation to study hard for December. Thanks!

I mean I wouldn't suggest taking February if you want to apply this round anyways. If you do poorly on December, I'd take a year off before applying.


Agreed. February is best used for the next cycle or getting off a waitlist/increasing scholarship money.

It's also pretty nice for being undisclosed. You won't get to obsess over the answer key.

It really depends of proctors, but about 4.5 hours IIRC.

I am so bad at bubbling :cry: :cry: I missed not one but TWO points today for an incorrect bubble... I realized that #20 was actually D, and then changed #21 to D, thereby missing #20 AND #21 even though I knew the answer to both...

I'm just going to pretend I got those correct because I need some mental encouragement right now...

Something tells me I'm not going to feel very relaxed during the one week break I'm taking off after the test before starting studying again for December...


if you finished BR'ing the 72rc, interested in where were your misses? last two passages did me in.

Its better to notice this kind of thing now and correct it than take it with you into the test. How/when do you normally bubble?

are you guys drilling a lot sitill at this point.. im not sure if my time is better spent simply going back through missed questions and reviewing them again from tests 70 and above, even though i still have 74 and 75 to do.

Everyday on non-PT days, I've been drilling 30 questions from the LR Most difficult packet. I think it's helping.

is this range on fresh timed modern tests? if not, then may be it's not the range that you should consider unless you have no recent fresh tests left.


Yep, I'm talking about fresh practice tests 4 section done consecutively

Your second and third takes are when you should worry about whether postponing is a good idea. Experience is always a plus and you might do better than expected. Plus things could always come up changing your priorities and goals or mishaps getting in the way of future takes.


I agree with this. I don't think that I'm going to get the best score I could get on Saturday, but I might as well take it anyway because 1) schools don't seem to care about retakes, 2) I already paid, 3) I'll probably do well enough to get some decent options anyway.

We need to stop stressing out. You get three takes, and you can always apply again next year if this cycle doesn't work out. Law school isn't going anywhere.

Today's plan: Logic games, lunch, gym, library for back-to-back PTs.
