I set a minimum score prior to starting my prep which ended up being almost exactly my average PT score. I'm pretty doubtful that i achieved it on Saturday, so a February retake may be in my future


Why feb? Why not dec? Just curious

I'm not applying until next cycle and am graduating UG one semester early, so I'll have more time to study for Feb than Dec

LOL after the LSAT a few buddies and I watched the whole season in a day. It's funny and weirdly intriguing. Whole time we were sitting there like "WHO DREW THE DICKS?!?!"

I'm telling myself now that 166 and below is an auto-retake. 167, 168, and 169 will require intense thought, and anything above 170 is an instant app submit after emailing everyone for a fee waiver.

yeah I mean there's always the possibility, but if you're even a little careful during the test and don't remember anything specific that may cause you to think you misbubbled, you should honestly be fine

Ahhh ok! Feb tests scare me because not much is known about them

Oh really? :shock: Can you expand on that? What isn't known?

honestly what I needed to hear so thank you!

the test is mostly a blur right now because of how tired/nervous I was, so it's hard to keep myself from driving myself mad over-speculating

pretty sure they don't release the answers to the test/tell you how many or which problems you got wrong, just a score; it's undisclosed

Because it isn't at 100% despite being the best show on TV period several times over?

"Fuck you mom" is the best scene in Netflix history, but I don't think BoJack consistently delivers every single episode

I still need to watch the latest season, but Bojack is a seriously solid show. The depth of characterization was a real surprise.

If you watched Arrested Development, then the fact that Will Arnett drives the drama right to your gut really makes you question everything. The double fact that he is a horse makes the show insane

I'm worried about the RC, too. I wish the turnaround was one week instead of like three

^same; except I think with a 167 I would lean very heavily towards a retake. Honestly I would be ecstatically happy with a 170 and I don't think it's out of the question.

I think my "consideration" score is 169/170. 171+ means im done and <169 is auto retake. Super splitter ftl

I think I'm in the same boat though I'm almost willing to take a 165. GOD I don't want to take it again. GPA is high and I keep thinking how bad is it REALLY to be a splitter? Gah.

The only reason it takes a month(ish) to get the score report is because LSAC wants everyone with LR LG LR LR RC to go full blown existential crisis, in turn weeding them out from the December test. That's my theory.
