Just got waitlisted from UCLA and no word yet from UT Austin (I'm assuming my softs haven't gotten me denied yet).

I think I'm going to try again (mostly out of sheer frustration at making the LSAT a part-time job when it turns out I could have done something else and gotten my first diagnostic test score). Maybe the June 2017 LSAT will work out better.

Honestly think a 165 LSAT would be enough to get me into t-20 but I'm obviously not an admissions expert.


165 could make you competitive for even YHS haha good luck!

Do you mind me asking how long you had been studying? I've been studying for over a year, and I've been pushing the test back way too many times. I think a huge part of it is cause of work (full-time teacher) and just not studying right. My highest score has been a 151, and I'm blind reviewing at 157-160, however after finally breaking through the 150's, my next PT was an abysmal 140 :/ I'm thinking about taking next week off, then get back to it until September, but I'm dead set on applying for Fall 2018, so I am definitely taking September.

Do you think taking next week off, with possible light reviewing, would be ok?
