to those who interviewed in NYC today - how was it? thoughts/recap? hope it went well for you!


Its the June 07 free LSAT

They don't give explanations but they do tell you what questions you got wrong and what type. It takes about 3 weeks to get the score though, so i suggest writing down the answers in your test booklet and then going home to check your score.

anyway to get a 5 minute warning?

Hey, TM, which PT did you take and how did you do?  Also, since you're retaking, what's your method of studying... if you don't mind me asking.

I don't get it... ???

Princeton Review offers a free diagnostic test, the June 2007 one.

You could always just bring your own PT into the test center and sit through it and hand nothing in.

how is everyone, that is planning to retake, planning to study? 

what do you do when you've gone through all the practice tests?

Do them again.  There are 40+ available - you're not going to remember all the questions.  Save 40-55 for the final six weeks before the test.

I'm gonna redo tests (with 30 minute sections)I've done before with the intention of getting every single question correct. That's not easy to do even if you have seen them before.

So probably like a few of you on this board, I was not happy with my June LSAT score. I was getting my practice tests between 163-169 without fail, and on the actual test I scored a 159. I really know that I can do better then this and plan on preparing myself accordingly for the October 4th test...

I had been studying for 3/4 months before the June test, devoting a good amount of time to the test each week. I plan on ordering the Logical Reasoning Bible for help in that area, but otherwise does anyone have any reco's for a study plan. I dont know if I have it in me to devote the amount of time I was doing before hand, but I realize that I need to do a good amount of studying to keep myself fresh for the October test.

With all that said, any help that can be offered from you guys would be great.

Thanks, and I hope the rest of you who took the June administration faired as well as you hoped!

The biggest reason people score lower on the real thing is nerves. This is especially true if you got most of your wrong answers at the end of the sections, meaning you panicked over time and weren't concentrating on the questions. The best thing you can do (other than practice practice practice) is taking as many practice tests in timed, test-like conditions. Look up and take as many practice tests offered in your area by companies like Kaplan and Princeton Review as you possibly can. Usually they're free because they're trying to get you to take their courses. By practicing in these conditions, you can get confidence in a actual-test situations and won't get the drop from whatever you're scoring on practice tests at the time.

On test day, do everything you can to keep your confidence up the entire time - but I'll save detailed advice on that for closer to the day.

GOOD LUCK! You can definitely do it - if you can get those scores on practice tests, you can certainly get them on the real thing.

I am totally taking your advice and taking all the PR/Kaplan free proctored PTs that they are offering.

It's weird, but I think choking so badly might help me in the long run b/c I know I am definitely retaking and I know I must do and most likely will do MUCH BETTER so that's comforting and will hopefully help relieve my anxiety/stress come test day.

On the other hand, if I had gotten a 169 and was aiming for a 170, I would be incredibly stressed out come test-day thinking...should I have really registered? Should I cancel? What if I score lower?

With a 162 my back is against the wall. It's October or bust and I like that mindset. Without an option for canceling will help me.

3.957 + decent soft factors (Mainly immigration issues + internship with immigration non profits)-can write a good PS about my passion in immigration/human rights. 

162. 10 points below last PT, 8 points below average.

Retake in Oct. Goal 170+

162! Completely in shock because I was averaging 170 on PTs (Last PT #53 I scored 172). Nerves got the better of me. The same LR questions I would usually knock out in my sleep I was getting wrong.

RC -6 Cakewalk and Comparative
LR -7 3 out of first 10 wrong. Got all the easy questions wrong because I was rushing.
LR -5 Very upset at myself for getting 5 wrong on such an easy LR section.
LG -2 I was always getting -0 and a few times -1. Just made some really stupid careless mistakes.

Will retake in October. Hopefully if I break 170 with my UGPA (3.965) I can get into a t-14 school (Hoping for Columbia, NYU, Boalt)
