If my score isn't posted by the time the Yankee game starts, I'll have to start doing shots.

I think -11 means if you had 11 incorrect answers, you scored 170.

I'm pretty sure LSAC uses a reverse alphabetical order, using the last letter of your state's name.

My score was just posted to my lsac account. No email yet.

SERIOUSLY?!? AHhhhh... what was the curve for a 170?

good question.

Worst. Thread. Ever.

kkeasi -- I just noticed that was your very first LSD post.  I didn't mean to scare you away.

My understanding of "most," as used on the LSAT, is 51-100%.  (Colloquially I understand most to mean 51-99%)  My 51-100% interpretation is based on Powerscore's "logic ladder."  As you point out, Belushi and Penn, the stimulus in question is incompatible with this interpretation of "most." 

So... has anyone contacted Powerscore about this?  Maybe they can get a response from LSAC.  Perhaps what LSAC means by "most" has shifted over time.. ?


but black guys scare me

THIS.  argggg!  >:(

I hear this all the time from Korean middle school students.  I calmly explain to them that there is nothing to fear.  I don't judge them because (a) they are all sixteen or younger and (b) most of them have never met a black person.

You are an adult who has known African(-American?) folks personally.  Your point of view reflects poorly on you as an individual.  Assuming you are Korean, your point of view also lends credence to the (equally prejudiced) idea that Koreans are racist.

I was having this same problem until recently, except worse: 1 bad test for every 2 good ones.  I think the factors contributing to my inconsistency were:

- Fatigue.  After three months of studying, I had a hard time focusing on every practice test.  At a certain point, my brain was just ready to take the real deal.
- Irregularity.  To combat this fatigue, I began taking only 2 tests per week.  On some in between days, I couldn't motivate myself to review the previous test or take practice sections.

Now the good news.  About two weeks before the test (I test 6/28), my brain clicked into full-focus-"Pookie!-let's-burn-this-mutha-down" mode.  Since then my practice tests have consistently been 175+.

I guess my advice to you is to relax a little.  Take one or two days off per week.  The test isn't until September and you're scoring in your target range 90% of the time.  Once the test is approaching, immerse yourself in study again and you'll find that you haven't lost much, if anything.  You don't want to peak too early.
