Studying for the LSAT / Re: June 2011 Thread
« on: November 28, 2010, 02:58:03 AM »
153 in Sept 09...I haven't started studying yet... and I'm coming up with my study plan today while I'm home for the holiday. ...I'll start studying on Monday.

I'll be starting Monday as well and I'll be doing 5-section preptests as quickly as possible while going over all my mistakes. I'll be starting with preptest 28.

I feel great now, I have rough days where it aches pretty bad, but I'm satisfied with the outcome of the second surgery.

Great to hear that. I think I'll go under the knife after the LSAT and after I have built some more muscle around my core area.


One other thing, I don't want you to think you won't improve and thus discourage you from studying. I lost my mother to cancer this summer, so perhaps I have other things on my mind. Plus, at least you would be confident on test day and keep your score.

I'm terribly sorry for your loss. I've lost a loved one to cancer as well. It's devastating. All we can do is look forward to the future and work hard to achieve our goals.

Oh well. So, you're doing great already. Remember- 165 is the 90th percentile. I really haven't improved much actually. It has always been the same range and the only thing I have improved on is LG and like I said, I freak out so what does it matter.

I find that I do better on LR if I do a warmup section before the preptest.

Unfortunately, a 165 will give me close to a 0% chance at an acceptance at my 15 choices. I need around a 175 or better to have a fair shot at a scholarship and an acceptance.

It took me a couple of months but I found that LR and LG are very learn-able.

You definitely have to fix your freak-out problem. Then you should repeatedly do drills using old LR and LG questions until you know the questions inside-out.

My issue is with the RC. It's too inconsistent. Sometimes, I score a -2 and other times I score a -8. Sometimes I don't even finish. I'm hoping 6 months will be enough to fix that.

I'm also starting to study for the June 2011 test. I took the September 2009 exam after studying for about 3 months, during which time I was also recovering from a spine fusion, and I didn't do as well as I wanted. This time around I'm healthy and giving myself plenty of time to study.

Whoa! I was considering getting spinal fusion for my L4-L5 region but decided against it because I didn't want to miss out on the December test. Now that I'm postponing to June, I'm re-considering it. Might do lots of back exercises instead and hope the problem goes away by itself.

How did you do in Sept 09 and what's your score range at the moment? Also, how did you bust up your spine?

Good luck!

It's not too early. The more time the better and check LSAC for registration. I don't know offhand

I hope I don't burn-out. I'll update this thread if I find out. How are you scoring at the moment?

Hi everyone! This is my first post!

Anyone else starting their LSAT preparation for June 2011 or am I starting much too early?

I was originally set to take the test in December but I don't feel ready. I took a Kaplan proctored Preptest (Preptest #36 with experimental section) a month back and scored a 163. Most of my errors were in the LG and RC sections. I'm hoping for a 10+ point increase by June but I'm finding it very hard to stay focused.

Anyone know when LSAC usually opens up registration for future LSATs? Test centers around my area get filled up very quickly so I want to register on the first day it becomes available. So far, only February 2011 is available.

The June test is 7 months away and I'm already feeling the pressure!  :o
