Have you guys written your PS yet? I did a rough draft and touched it up a bit but there's still quite a bit of changes I would like to do...trying to decide when to do it seeing as how I want to send in my apps to my safety schools before December, but feel guilty whenever I'm not studying!

EDIT: Had a dream that the only school I got into was University of Idaho? I didn't even know they had a law school. *Shudder

I personally don't put much. I regularly untimed pt in the 170's and even a 180 once but received a 157 in October.

Hey guys

I am still drilling questions and I am currently doing few questions from each level(~10 each level). I am thinking of changing my approach a bit. Perhaps I should do only level 1 and 2 till i am consistently getting >95% correct, and then I move onto level 3 till I score >90% consistently, and finally move onto level 4. What do you guys think?

BTW, going to start taking full PTs next week or week after.

Thanks in advance.

Cambridge? At this point, I would jump to lev 3-4. I'm doing that for Identify the Flaw type right now. If you did the bookwork, you should already be doing well in lev 1-2 so you would get more out in harder levels. It would teach you same strategy but help you get through hard questions. Hope that helps

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I did it untimed because I was working on some RC methods (reading for structure) from the Trainer but I think it is really helping. Doing light LG today and PT tomorrow morning at 8:30am!



How are you finding the Trainer? I did MLSAT but I also have the Trainer (unopened) i want to work on RC (i thought i got it to 3-6 but yesterday got 10 wrong) and get as close to making 0-2 errors.

Are there a lot of concepts/ information for me to take in? Thanks!

Finished BR
LR: -4, 22
RC: -11,16
LG: -1, 21
LR: -5, 20

Scores are from original take...ended up being a 164. If I could just get RC down, I could break into the 170s. I'm pretty sure I will never get a 170 on the actual test but I want to at least be able to consistently score it so that if I freak out on test day (what happened last time), I won't score in the 150s.

Back to back 169s! I'm confident I can crack 170 within the next 3 weeks.

PT57

LG - 2 (Infamous Dinosaur game took too much time but got all of the questions right, but missed the last 2 questions in game 4 due to time)
LR1 - 3
LR2 - 5
LG (EXP) - 0
RC - 2 (Best RC score ever so I really couldn't feel any happier)

-12 89 raw

PT #61:
RC-exp: -7 (-5 BR)
RC: -4 (-1 BR)
LR: -2 (-1 BR)
LG: -2
LR: -4 (-4 BR).

Timed -12 for 169. Blind review -8 for 172.

Got tired doing blind review towards the end, probably could have picked out another LR question or two if I had concentrated.

Making progress on RC but still have work to get done. Reading Manhattan LR guide now which is helping with LR, and going to do some drilling with a Cambridge packet. Also going to try to fit in the LSAT Trainer at some point.
