LSAT advice

Postby John749 » Sun Apr 30, 2017 8:02 pm

Got a 155 on December 2016 test. Haven't looked at the material for 3 months to get a fresh perspective. What online course would be recommended and is a goal of low 160s a push for 1 month of prep?

Not exactly the response you're looking for - but is there a reason you can't spend more time than just a month and study for the September test? To be honest, it's like 15+ questions more right that you're trying to get, and having not looked at any material in 3 months means you're pretty late to the game if you're dead set on taking the June test.

I'd recommend making a more reasonable 3-4 month study plan and take September. It won't affect your applications at all, and at that low of a starting score, you've got a lot of room to improve. I don't see that kind of improvement coming from a 1 month crash course of studying. (Maybe if you had a high starting point, indicative of a natural talent for this sort of test, that'd be one thing, but a 155 starting point to jump to 164 in 1 month seems unrealistic IMO).

Why is the low 160's your goal? You should be aiming for the highest score possible to maximize scholarship opportunities.

Don't take the June test. Spend 3-4 months studying your ass off, and take the September test and reap the benefits with scholarships. This test can literally save you hundreds of thousands of dollars, give it the attention it deserves.

I'm not sure how long you prepped for your last test, but if you scored 155 with significant prep, then a month is not enough time because you're lacking fundamentals. Take the test in September, and start studying now.

You can get 10+ score jump with lots of practice.
