Assuming I retake in December, I'm waiting. I don't see any benefit in sending it in early and updating.


Sat for 10/3, but I am also signed up for 12/5. I'm thinking my score will be pretty predictable (or so I hope) and so I'm submitting apps to schools where my score is at or above 75% and holding off until 12/5 scores to try and reach that 170 benchmark and then apply to my dream schools.



I've been wondering this.....do I apply to my lower options that are backup schools or wait? Will it have any effect on my schollie potential? I guess if you update it do they go back and re-evaluate it specifically for schollies once you are accepted?

Just took PT 65/EXP LR 55, I was so slow in every section (I think because I largely took last week off). I ran out of time on the last game :shock: :shock: felt really strong on this RC even though I ran out of time on 2-3 questions, LR was the same. It was my first time taking a PT with my new CASIO mens watch. I have to get better at adjusting to the watch.

This was also my first 5 section test with the 15 minute break and all. Only I took a 10 minute break instead of 15. I took it at the library and it was crowded with high schoolers and kids. The high schoolers kept whispering and distracting me so I moved my table during my 15 minute break. I know I won't have that option on the real test day, so I have to get used to it.

New poll topic ideas everyone??


Me too, seriously. Everytime I open my lsat books, I hope and hope that my Oct score will be good enough so that I can just cancel December.

168/171 BR (I was half assing the BR)

LG -2 (pretty easy for the most part, should've gotten them all right
LR -8
RC -7 (that was passage was insane!)

Honestly I missed most pretty easy questions so I'm upset with my self there, but overall I'm happy with my performance. This curve was also pretty generous in my opinion.


Awesome! Do you do your BR immediately after?

Yes, I usually do the PT early in the morning, take a break for lunch afterwards, then I BR.

If I got a 168 I would be content because my diagnostic was a 142. It's been a long journey to get into the higher 160s.


You might have said this and I might have missed it, but how long have you been prepping?

I have yet to begin studying again for december.

Honestly I cannot even imagine studying again. I will if I have to. But thinking back to how much I was studying seems psychotic

I used LR from 55 bc I had that test and don't think I will get a chance to take it before the test.

I'd be interested to see what geographical regions people are from in the US. Or what political party they identify with. Or pretty much anything about the demographic here. SOMETHING!

Next June? I thought you were doing quite well a few months ago!

Well, I've learned a lot about this test, and I am definitely taking it in December.

Damn it, how far back in time did I go?


Giggle giggle. Well, I was in such a rush to apply, and then I realized that I kinda enjoy being an adult. I'm also trying to coordinate with BP Ben who is doing the PC *heart eyes emoji* Not really, but I'm sure he will very much appreciate the shout out. :mrgreen:

I'm hoping to take it in June 2016 for dat noon start time. I still do questions here and there when I'm feeling extra *~lonely~* so I'm keeping the skills relatively sharp.

How are you kittens doing?

So I'm getting the vibe here that most taking in December aren't applying this cycle?
