Like WTF is this. Neither section felt particularly difficult, so I guess I'm just stupid and falling for all the trap answers? This literally feels night and day from even the late 60's. Very, very seriously considering withdrawing from June at this point. Feeling defeated and like I've totally wasted the last 6 months.
edit: In case it isn't clear this is a desperate cry for help for someone to tell me its gonna be okay
Hey Plato, I'm in the same spot right now. You can do this! There's something different with the 70's, but your foundation in LR is definitely solid enough to make it work. At the very least, it's better to spot these mistakes and fix them before the test than finding them after the test
I agree, I managed an average of -0.75 per section in the 40's + 50's when drilling, so the foundation is there. Just need to tweak a few things to get caught up on the curve balls from the 70's
Yeah it's crazy how the tests in the 70s are pretty much harder on all fronts. Hoping for a nice generous -14 curve.
BTW isn't your pt average like 174 or something? Don't tell me you're not ready for this, because that means I'm not ready either
My average for PT 70's isn't that hot though (around 172.9?) The last 2 PT's hit me hard and I'm still struggling to get over them. How are you faring in the 70's, DM? How do you keep a clear mind when going through the more challenging LR questions?
I'm just lost on what to do right now.
So your average on the most recent tests is median score at Yale - the best law school in the world. Seriously, that's an excellent score. We're a bit blinded to it because we're all high achievers, but at this point, most of us stand a really good shot at scoring in the top 1%
