Poor Diagnostic - Should I be Worried?

Postby ce255 » Fri Dec 21, 2012 4:36 pm

Hi, just a little background info. I'm a male URM (AA) attend a T-30 LAC. I read that the average LSAT score for AA's was 142, and I thought, oh I'm much better than that. I plan on taking the LSAT in 9 months, so I took a cold diagnostic - I've never taken any prep courses or read any books or gotten any advice - and scored a 143.... Does this mean that ~165ish is impossible for me? I really want to get into the T-25.

165+ is very possible

This.

It's just a diagnostic, man. Take the real one in June, and start studying now. You've got a little over 5 months. Use them.

How/where did you lose your points on the diagnostic? If you were simply running out of time on every section and having to rush or guess, or you got raped by the logic games because you didn't really know where to start or how to attack the problems, then I wouldn't worry too much - those are things that will certainly improve as you continue to prep.
