It seems from LSN that non-URMs with a 3.7 need 175+ to get into Harvard. Is my perception correct?

Hey guys, I'm planning to take the June LSAT and just got started prepping (going through the Bibles right now). Do any of you want to meet up especially now that winter break is here? I don't know how many of you are in the Chicago area but I figured I'll try anyway.
How long should one take to go through each Powerscore Bible? I know you guys will say "until you master everything," and I agree, but how long do you people usually take to master everything?
I'm finding Logical Reasoning easier to go through than Logic Games just because the games take more effort to set up, solve, etc. For that reason, I'm also more motivated to go through LR first. Should I be doing them both at the same time though or should I finish one first before starting the other?
How helpful is the RC Bible? For those who used it and took the test already, did you see a noticeable improvement in your RC score?
Hey guys, I will begin my official prepping for the June LSAT next week, so I'll have roughly 6 months to get this thing down. As a diagnostic, I took the June 2007 test published by LSAC and scored a 150. My weakest section is LGB and strongest RC (3 wrong). Do any of you guys have game plan suggestions? My goal is to get 170+ (175+ would be awesome). I heard this is doable with a lot of hard work? If it means anything, I have a 3.8 GPA majoring in the liberal arts at a top 15 university. If I get into Harvard next year, I will buy everyone who helped me a drink, no joke.
Thanks so much.
Studying for the LSAT / How long would it take to complete 50 practice tests with a full courseload?« on: December 05, 2008, 03:51:42 AM »
How long do you think it would take to take 50 practice tests and go over them thoroughly while managing 4 courses (quarter system) at a top 15 university?
More specifically, how long does it take you on average to go over each section? I know this will vary depending on your strengths/weakness, so if you could please state those, that would be nice.

Hey guys, I just realized that I have to buckle down this year if I want to apply in the 2009-2010 cycle. My goal is to take the LSAT this Feb, so I can have the summer free to do a program and work on my apps (want to get them all in by late Sept. before school starts so I don't have to worry about it during the year). Got any tips on fitting LSAT prep into a busy schedule? I have a full courseload at a top 15 university, work part-time (15 hrs a week), hold a citywide leadership position, and train hard athletically everyday. I'm trying to get my scores up to 170+ from a 150. Any tips are much appreciated. thanks.

Hey guys, I got a 150 on my diagnostic. -44 overall (-25 LR, -5 RC, -14 LG). Is it possible to raise my score by 20+ points? I plan to take the LSAT in June 2009, so I've got the entire schoolyear to prep. If it matters, I'm getting a 3.8 at a top 20 university.
