Studying for the LSAT / in LSAT mode once again!
« on: November 11, 2007, 06:39:28 AM »
I've decided to start studying for the LSAT once again, in preparation for the February test.  Although I'm somewhat happy with my Sept score, reading these posts in the past few weeks has made me wonder whether it's possible for me to boost my score.  I scored a 163, but even a 2 point boost would put me firmly in the "acceptance" pile in the schools I'm applying to.  I don't plan to register for Feb, though, unless I can consistently score higher by Christmas.  I wouldn't take the test unless I was fairly certain I'd score higher.  Worst comes to worst, I stick with my current score.

I've been averaging 163 before my Sept test, although I have scored as high as 169 in practice (but have gone as low as 159).  Is it unrealistic for me to average around a 168 by Christmas/New Year's with intense studying?  Is this really just wishful thinking?

I know there are some schools that normally average but will take the higher if your score increases by 8 points by second time around.  But what if you were to write it three times, with scores 160, 168 and 170?  There isn't a significant difference between the 2nd and 3rd scores, so will the aforementioned schools average all 3 scores, average the 2 higher scores, or take the highest score?  Thanks
