It's 90 degrees and sunny today, but I'm stuck inside at my undergrad library trying to knock out some timed sections. Going to go running around campus once I'm done with this though. Hopefully I will be done between 6-7pm today.

Jfc, that sucks dude. You've been killing the PT's too haven't you? High 170's pretty consistently iirc from the june group? I'd be pissed. Do you have enough material to keep you fresh all the way until September?

They really decided to do that to you? Whats the point of having the photo ID if they are going to be that strict on it?

This thread is also about to blow up with those who overreact from the test today.

I used it all up. Last two PTs were 180.

Looks like PT retakes for dayyyyys.


Ok stupid question but this test doesn't count towards your takes right?? Also $180 down the drain - that really sucks dude!!!

Can you call LSAC to complain about your situation?

I followed TLS1776's guide. Between him Voyager, Noodley, and PithyPike almost anyone should be able to break into 172+ with 4ish months of studying.

The core of it definitely comes from -0 to -1 LG and finishing with 8 minutes of extra time. Along with -2 MAX wrong per LR. Personally, RC is still the wildcard that I can miss 4 in.

My usual (recent) breakdown goes: -0 LG, -0 to -2 combined LR, and -1 to -3 RC

I guess this extra time will help me nail RC

**Possibly more important is having a consistent study buddy. I Skype reviewed with someone on TLS since February. We probably BR'd 30 PTs together. We both borrowed strategies that worked from each other in specific problem areas like principle, parallel reasoning, or inference RC questions.

Speaking of which if anyone wants to BR together send me a PM anytime.

I'll look into those guides, thanks! LG is definitely my weakest point at the moment, I started the Bibles Friday and missed 3/5 of basic linear so I've got a lot of work to do. As for studying, I'm mostly fronting it alone but I was like that in college so hopefully it translates well!

Sorry about June again, you're taking it way better than I would have.

would be interested in BRing with you. Compared to your breakdowns though, I feel like a peasant lol. RC is my worst section, getting better though, and LG is my best. LR is always varying but I'm pretty good at it.

My highest PT ever has only been a 169, and my average I think was like a 166 or some shit.

Sorry that happened to you :/ but at least we have you in our thread!

I saw your advice rg. strategy. If you don't mind me asking how do you BR with someone else? Take turns doing questions? Or work on the same questions?


This applies to you and everyone else asking about group BR - 7sage has awesome blind review calls that you're all welcome to attend. We meet Sunday night and only review one PT (but since it's only once a week you have plenty of other time to do a 2nd on your own). We basically go over questions that anyone has questions on - we have a lot of people attend who have already taken the test, as well as a mixed back of people still in their studies (majority being in the 165+ range), but have a few lower than that as well. We discuss tactics, go over questions that stumped us, discuss trick answer choices, etc. If you want more info feel free to PM me.

That suckkkkkkkkkkksssssss. I feel you bro. It will count as like a "cancel" or whatever iirc. Might matter at Yale, but for sure elsewhere if you still hit your numbers and apply when scores come out from the Sept test, you should be fine
