dood der is over 4 months until the test, u prolly can't improve. am sory :(

Seriously tho, you can bring that up to -2 in 1.5 months :/


I feel like there is some point when it just clicks? I read through the Trainer's chapter again on specific question types, dumped the memory method, and pretty quickly started going -2.

I still look at a good number of questions and go WTF, but I guess my POE is decent.

I'm feeling much more calm and less neurotic this time around. I remember September studying I was freaking out in July because I hadn't cracked 170 yet.

So if Uncle Donnie does in fact cut funding to Brek, what does that mean for us?

If my RC gets down to AT LEAST a consistent -5ish, I'll be in the 170's

Well there you go man, my personal biggest problem with RC is one I don't know if I can tame and it is my interest in the passage itself. Ellien Gray is so BORING.

What is your target? 172?

Tbh, 167+ would make me content, but 170+ would make me happy.

Just got 5/7 on a basic sequencing game (October 2000 LSAT, LG #3).

I have to step this up.

You'll get the hang of it eventually. With more practice, soon you'll be able to do those basic sequencing games in like 4 mins and -0 them, trust me!

everyone, chill lol. If you're not doing as well as you want right now you've got 4.2ish months to improve. I'm sure my tone will change 2 months out but in the interim, focus on the process.

seriously to address your pervious reply, you can definitely crack 170 on test day we've both been studying this shit so long it's almost second nature.

Tbh, 167+ would make me content, but 170+ would make me happy.

This^. Maybe a 171 would make me very happy since it's Stanford's median. However, I am a URM lol.

It's literally a routine in our lives at this point. Never though I'd be here, a year later, still doing this shit but hey what can I say, I thought I was a snowflake back then.

I'm also a urm (Hispanic), rand. Which is why I'm content with a 167 because of my GPA but obviously saying that I got a 170 on the LSAT would not only give me better chances but bragging rights

Just went perfect (28/28) on my first linear games drill! Really happy that LG is clicking since I did so horribly on my diagnostic. I'm staring with advanced linear games tomorrow. They look scary :shock:

they're not as different. they're just double or triple layered sequencing! seems intimidating, I suppose, but not as and as you think !

Went -6 on an untimed RC today :( I reviewed it and know where I made mistakes. I also rushed a little more than usual. Rather than pin pointing exact lines for answers. Must be my subconscious wanting to be timed!

Followed up with a -1 untimed LG. Rule substitution question stumped me.

-3 untimed LR yesterday. This needs to get to -0 a little faster. I find my wrong answers are mostly when I narrow it down to 2 choices and pick the wrong one.

Holding back on timing myself for another week or two will be hard. But probably worth it in the long run.

I'm convinced everyone so far is going to get the 175+s except me.
