I took PT 62 on Sunday Morning.

Score: 171

RC: 23/27 -4
LR1: 21/26 -5
LG: 22/23 -1
LR2: 23/26 -3

According to 7Sage after taking 4 PTs, my average LSAT score is a 170. I hope I score a 170 when I take the test in June. Starting tomorrow, I will begin taking 5-section Pt's. Hopefully I get to score even higher haha. I am taking 2 PT's a week until June LSAT.

I usually get 0 in LG but this PT's LG section was tough!

I do pretty ok with LR and RC.

How should I drill in between PTs. I probably will drill LR Flaws, Psuedosufficient Ass, and Necessary Ass. since that the type that I frequently miss more.

Not really sure how to study for RC. I will probably drill passages too in the days between PTs.

My apartment or the library. Bibles require focus and the ability to absorb the information, you can take PTs in different environments because you want to push yourself. This phase isolation is key.

I enjoyed the library. Apartment works too.

Haven't seen this lovely chap in almost 7 months, luckily I got it early enough that I won't be in debilitating pain for the next week. Really going to try and rest up so I can finish the trainer (again) this weekend.

I hate myself. It was the second lecture of a class today and the prof called me by name. I'm being a gunner and it feels so gross.

The one I got called by name in is 200ish, but I'm taking another class with the same prof and it's closer to 40-50. I chatted to her yesterday after the smaller class, so it's not toooooo bad.

I have at least 3 chapters and 2 readings worth of notes I should be making tonight. :cry: This is a huge course load.

So one day after taking 55 minutes and getting a -4 on the LG from PT3, I take 36:51 and get a -4 on the LG from PT4.

Any thoughts on what might cause such a huge variance? There's no way that's one day's improvement, is there?

I didn't think PT3 was difficult at all. My first try attempting the game was 24/24 in 26:07. I haven't done PT4 though. If you have difficulty with pt3 I would just watch 7sage's explanations on it, then solve the game immediately after. If you retain the material, do it again the next day and hope it sticks. That's the best way to increase your speed with LG's.

Oh I know very well it's not true. Telling myself that it is true however, is my mechanism to help hype myself up to succeeding. Don't ruin my dreams Mister Scrooge.

Sorry, didn't mean to lash out at you. I see 0Ls toss this around like it's gospel truth when it's been addressed so many times and it's completely false. Sometimes I think it's better to just admit that most of us won't really understand what working in BL is like until we get there, so we might as well listen to those who do.

Regardless, you can't really plan to be in BL for more than 3 or 4 years (an optimistic estimate) and odds of making partner are slim to none.


You're really pissing in our bowl of optimism here Alex. We were on a roll of making CEO by the age of 34 at google and you just ruined it all with your realism. :|

VP at NASCAR, some of us are realistic :mrgreen:


I'm so glad we have our resident redneck in this thread. I had a great friend from UG who was my token redneck and you can hopefully fill the void in my heart since I don't see him anymore </3

No, it was something historical, maybe WWII-related.
