I jumped 5 points from Feb to Oct if I can pull that off again I'd soooooooo happy! Also totally regretting not having done my PS, slowly working on it along with studying.

Did you apply PT to Duke? I just sent in my Duke PT as well as my Cornell and GTown apps on Saturday.

Yep, PT! It's really nice to know that I'll at least have one of the decisions back soon. I'm applying to all of my other schools when I get off work tonight :D (except Chicago and Harvard, waiting on Dec LSAT for those)

Good luck on those apps!! Hopefully we'll be celebrating Duke together by the end of next week

Good luck!!! At least the apps are in and done.

Really regretting not working on essays while waiting for October. Would have been nice applying to some of my backups now.

That said I'm really hoping to improve a ton from October. 167-172+ is a game changer.


Thank you! It definitely is a huge relief to have the essays done. I still need to write why Penn and Virginia essays though. You should set aside 3-4 hours a week just to work on essays if you'd prefer to start applying now

I'm gonna start taking multiple timed sections of RC on every non-test day. I need to figure this out.


aren't you already good at even the recent rc and scored really well on rc in oct? did you have less than 5min for the last psg in Oct too?

lol I just took 61 yesterday and bombed it. Can I ask what strategy you use for RC? I got -10 once again on that section, pretty much all in the last two passages. Did you read half of the comparative and then go to questions or read straight through first?

Thanks, I am still trying to get out of this -10 grind. Always taking too long to read the passage and making subtle mistakes exploring possibilities. Cheers to Noguchi, dental caries and animal vocalizations, these guys always manage to trick me.

Seems like overthinking and second guessing. Same problem here, I try to go with my gut but end up debating it anyways. I'm putting this entire week for RC drilling and taking the last 4 new tests over the last two weeks. Let's see if we can get some last second improvement going.

I do want to apply to schools I got waiver to (this is a retake, scored high 160s last time) bc i would love to attend either of them but I just can't afford to study AND apply because scores are not going up- pretty stagnant actually.

I did a timed RC (PT 33) after work (-2). Just anything timed gets me now: Butt starts to feel wiggly, increased hunger, brain buzzing, sudden desire to pee, etc. I thought LR was bad but RC just brings the bad side of me.

Does anyone know if my current Fall 2015 undergraduate grades will be requested of me when I apply in December?
