Started this one yesterday! I did enjoy going through the level one difficulty questions though :lol:


Just wait until you get to level two... The abstract answer choices will make you spin circles. :?

So RC has been a struggle for me. but I think I finally, after a year and a half of on and off studying, am seeing improvements in my RC. I have realized that you need to read for the forest. The questions are about the trees and the forest, but once you can give a one sentence summary on each of the paragraphs, finding and figuring out the answer to the specific questions is much easier.


Drilled a RC section yesterday and I ended up answering more than half wrong

Tried 7sage's method today, barely improved score wise, but saw a huge improvement in my ability to answer the question. I was more confident in narrowing down the answer choices, but I still need a ton of practice.

LR and LG comes so naturally to me, I just can't grasp my head around why I'm struggling so much on RC.

How much time are you guys spending on drilling? Do you plan to be done one month before the test? Two?

I plan to drill the Cambridge packets for LR, LG, and maybe RC for tests 1-38 by question type. I want to try to finish all of them in July, but maybe this would be too much. I could spread them out for July and August instead with more PT in August.

Low GPA mafia, man. I need a better score for T14, probably. Might ED at Northwestern either way just for the hell of it.


Yeah. A 174 is pretty difficult to beat though even if you're a consistent high scorer.

I think you should run with what you have. I think you would be better off spending the extra effort in getting perfect softs and applying at 12:01am the day applications open up. That's usually worth 2 lsat points anyways.

Checking in for my 3rd and final time. Don't worry, I'll be away from TLS most of the time.
