I've gotten absolutely no studying done this week due to being sick and RL bullshit commitments. Someone just needs to sit this damn test for me.. I wish I was sitting on a 17x and could just lurk the forums all day :x

That is the cutest thing I've ever seen. And I've seen a lot of cute things. I don't think dogs like me very much tho. Was petting one the other day and then it started to growl. Then it ran in the other direction. Owner tried to say it wasn't me, it was the dog. But it was probably me.
(Also I can't quote pics apparently)

I will. Dogs are so amazing for stress relief, that I'll be actively seeking out people with dogs to be friends with. 8)

I've completely given up on even attempting lsat practice before May. Come May it's prep, prep, and more prep (hopefully).

Yeah I really want to take the september test but will definitely postpone if not PTing where I want. Shit has hit the fan for me with research, class, and work. Really looking forward to quitting my job and only taking one class over summer.

I noticed that the test date change is a month out from the test.
For you LSAT gods that are still in this thread, where did you stand at about eight, six, and four weeks out?

I haven't been studying yet but I have a blueprint course in july for the September exam. Should I just waitfor my course or just start to work the Powerscore books i own early in the summer ? I know thr info won't match up but perhaps i will know something rather than nothing two months before the exam right?

I hate when musical festivals don't sell passes for just one day. I don't want to go to the whole thing. :(

Also, managed to register for two classes taught by the same prof. I'll be seeing her 12 hours a week, lol. Operation glowing LOR is a go! PRAISE STANNY.

Beginning of May is a good time if right now doesn't work. wouldn't recommend holding off much longer than that though.

I was thinking of this. Apologies for the many typos in my last post :| but thanks hopefully my 144 diagnostic was a fluke and somehow i will pull a 165+ by September. How have you all been working through the lsat Bibles ?? Do I just work through the books and start doing pt's with some blind review??

Diagnostics are like doing a calculus test before you learn calculus. Not indicative of your potential.

Imo, work through the Bibles and do the activities / answer questions / drill untimed, when you get better start timing individual games and such, then start timing individual sections. When you're scoring well on timed sections, start doing actual timed PTs. Before then, they're a waste.

For you LSAT gods that are still in this thread, where did you stand at about eight, six, and four weeks out?

If I'm a qualified respondent: Mostly the same. Hit a mid-170s plateau two and half months out (basically identical raw score for 9 PTs on end) that I didn't break until like 3 weeks before test day.

Started May 1, so just under 5 months.

Nope. I recommend SweetTort's though, if you can find it.

Oh shit. Just realized my GPA is gonna be lower than I thought because A-s are 3.67, not 3.7. Shit.
Anyone now if 7sage's GPA predictor is accurate? That's what I've been using.

Damn that really sucks man. You should play around with the law school predictor LSDAS GPA calculator to see what's possible to achieve with so many credits and what not.

ETA: I get the same on the 7sage calculator as on the one I typically use, which tells you what the 4.0 equivalent is, so yeah.

I've been calculating using 7sage and lawpad's calculators and I get the same on both - Do you know if they use 3.7s or 3.67?

This is dumb but I can't figure out how to use law school predictor's. Is there like a "go" button anywhere? Might just not work with my browser.
ETA: nvm just got it.
