My average for each section is like:
LG: -0 to -2
LR: -0 to -3 per section (total -1 to -6)
RC: lol anywhere from -6 to -13

Opinions please! Study full-time in the summer or get a part-time job/part-time LSAT?


I'd get the part-time job and see if you can't make some money to help pay interest on whatever loans you might be taking in LS when you have 0 income.

Really speaking, let's say you work 20 hours as week/4 hours per weekday. Still gives you plenty of time to study in the day. Or just chill out and only do LSAT. What feels right? Could be a cool time to pickup some new skills

yeah that's what I was thinking.. working part-time won't really screw me with study time, especially if it's a desk job and I can study at times there as well

Can anyone describe how people get a 175+ on the LSAT ? I was literally aiming for a 170 at best since i will be working full time July- September. Also my diagnostic was really bad so I just always assumed people who get high 150s or 160s at first try are the only ones who can pull off scores like 175+. Any hope for me? Anecdotal evidence welcome

e: my RC score is from the previous PTs I did at the very beginning of this year. Been slowly improving though by tons of drilling so my avg for RC maybe be better now.

Part time with few hours at a chill job is fine imo so long it's not impeding on LSAT studying. I would avoid full-time.

A lot of studying, basically. Your diagnostic means very little, my diagnostic was a 151, my last pt was a 172, it's just learning the test. You really have to put work in though, I've always considered myself a fairly smart guy, and I have been studying 12-15 hours per week since the new year (I'm taking in June). So it's not easy but it's not the hardest thing in the world either.

this ^

it's a learnable test. my diagnostic was low 140's and so far my highest PT has been a 169. It's doable, you just have to put in the hard work and time to learning it and making the test as familiar as possible.

tbh though, I literally did as much reading as a 1L would a whole semester for a class, if we're being honest. the prof was just extremely unfair and a fuckboy and wouldn't even respond to our emails and literally just ignored us all..

So for one of my classes part of our grade is from several shorter papers. One paper I carefully do the readings, research stuff, spend a week on. Another paper I literally BS'd in half an hour, didn't do the readings I was writing about at all. 75% on the first, 100% on the second. This is why I don't trust humanities classes y'all.

it was an online summer course and he put questions on the midterm and final that we had no readings for. I read the entire assigned book and that was all we had to go off of. since I read the whole book, I knew what I was doing but at least half of the final was foreign and it didnt make sense. so me and another student emailed him about this and he ignored the both of us and just submitted grades. his reviews on ratemyprofessor got worse after that class too.

overall, I actually thought the readings were interesting but it's too bad my grade didn't reflect that.
