Hahaha I am feeling the same way

Where would I find that info? (Cornell '18)

Also checking in!

Does anyone know how I can get my hands on the PT's?

Check out the "10 actual" series for LSATs 71 and earlier. They're probably your best bet financially. For tests 72 and on I bought them individually from Amazon

got back into studying today, kind of.

just did 2 passages, 1 timed and 1 untimed

P1: 3/5 untimed (give me a break, haven't seen LSAT stuff in a while lol and found myself rereading a lot and BLEH)
P2: 7/8 timed (9:13--I see my RC timing is still ASS)

Gonna get back into studying today. I'll probably regret not taking the Feb test. Hopefully I make it up with this test and only take the LSAT once

It's 5 1/2 months until the test and I still haven't gotten into a study rhythm. It's a silly question, as I should just be an adult and prioritize, but since this is a no judgment zone... (I hope lol)

Anyone have tips on how to get into a rhythm? As of now I'm not working, and don't want to head back to a job full-time until say March 7th.

For the record, I'm going to attempt a 4-section practice test this afternoon, but I have to be realistic with myself - I can see myself losing focus, then patting myself on the back for at least TRYING a practice test 5 1/2 months before the test, then say "whelp, I don't have to finish!"

Same. Also, checking in.

Finally taking the leap for the 2018/2019 cycle. Best of luck to everyone in their preparations.

The library was closed, and two failed attempts to find a quiet place to take the test. I'm giving up on a practice test today...and will just do some errands, then go home and clean my living room (which would make the ideal spot to do practice tests, if only I could concentrate for long enough on it...)

I'm going to try again another day this week, probably Friday. Before attempting to sit down for 3 hours doing w practice test, I should really get down sitting down for 30 minutes haha.

On we go!

Anyone here started with the Trainer yet? Have noticed recently TLS is raving about it, up with the Bibles.

Should I get it?

i half assedly read through it, def good for RC and a different viewpoint for LR, as for LG I can't attest because I skipped those chapters. I would get it and read through it before you start hardcore studying just to establish a foundation, rather it be a new foundation or old one.


I think you can use it in one of two ways...

1-primary study guide

2-your introduction to the LSAT (this seems to be the more common way)

Today I spent about 90 minutes studying. Logical Reasoning Bible, the Conditional Reasoning chapter (mostly re-reading, as I got to it right before sept LSAT).

Here's hoping I do some tomorrow too!
