I think by taking the test cold people usually mean never having done a single practice problem. If you actually took the real test cold that seems like a pretty stupid decision and waste of money.

Taking the LSAT cold is more stupid than getting a 149. Retake in June and study your ass off and go to your dream school.

I think he meant that he took the actual LSAT on dec. 5 cold. Very very...very bad decision, you should go study first for a few months or however long it takes...is this flame?

Not necessarily good softs, just FYI. Not much is going to help you with a 149. Retake and try in September.

Don't retake in Feb, get study materials, logic games bible, old tests etc., maybe even take a prep course and take it again in June or Oct., don't rush it.

No, I wouldn't, its to late in the cycle anyway and if you got a 149 cold I imagine you could do better if you study, and it would be worth it.

With intensive study you can likely get up to 160. You're screwing yourself over by going to schools that will take your 149; wait a year, study hard, retake the LSAT, and get into some much better schools next cycle.
