They might raise an eyebrow, but if you explain that there was an issue on your admission ticket and you didnt even sit for the test they'd likely care less than if you had actually taken the test and canceled. Just speculating. Although I doubt they'd care if you ended up hitting the 180 on sept anyway.

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.

Edit.

Did you use all 4 guides?

Billed 8.75 hrs and got an hour of studying in. A nap, 2 hrs drilling, and GSW taking game 5 would make today perfect :)

Maybe checking in? Depends on June results, everything rests on RC, and if I actually am going to not go on the vacation I planned to take and take the LSAT again instead... :? :? :?

Whoa, the June test has brought some new faces in here. Money from my long term love and where I'm deposited, Duke. Also, depends on how my visit goes

haha not June, been September for a while now.

What was their offer? I would lean towards the cheaper pending on placement preference.

PM me when you're headed up if you want and I can see whether anything up there is worthwhile to check out.

You should probably eat at CTB once, b/c that's what everyone does. Hit up the Farmers' Market if its open. The lake is worth passing by. The Piggery is great if that's still around. Commons are pretty worthwhile and I think grad students may go down there more often than undergrads.

I'd also check out some places to live that are still open if possible while you're up there. You may realize certain apartments look walkable or doable on paper, but they aren't. at all.

Oh, just unfamiliar then. Cornell just beat my Duke offer by 45k. I prefer non-NYC and southern markets, which is why Duke is a natural favorite

45k is a large sum, I'm not sure about the living costs difference either. I would take some time, how long do you have to decide?

I was a non standard admit. They seem pretty open about how long I have to decide. I'd like to get housing soon, though

damn, rock meet hard place. I hope everything works out for you, maybe see if duke will budge a little more?

That's the plan. Otherwise, I'll be going somewhere much colder than I had already decided on.

A bit of both. I was like 85% prepared-not quite where I wanted to be (thank you 3 jobs and full course load last semester). It was a perfect storm of under preparation, lack of sleep, and nerves. But I figured since it's a disclosed test I could at least get a better idea how I performed on a real test day even though I wasn't where I wanted to be. Now I'm not so sure I should ever let that score see the light of day. My timing was completely off throughout the first three sections, I didn't get it together until after the break.

Sept and December will confirm. Literally had to hold back a physical/verbal celebration when I got to LG4 because I was 90% sure LG couldn't be my exp section.

I am by no means banking on Sept not having a weird game. IIRC Feb didn't and now June didn't so either Sept will be impossible or we are in a new era. LR seems to have remained constant as well with a tough RC passage.

perhaps this is gre retaliation
