Studying for the LSAT / Re: People PTing in the 170 - 175 range
« on: August 09, 2008, 09:43:34 AM »
^^ RC is my toughest section as well. But I finished another PT yesterday and actually exceeded my score for both LR sections (Preptest 13). My problem was always that I would waste too much time reading the passage and considering it. My advice would be to take an entirely strategical approach to the section - extract the main point and make mad notations that denote changed in the passage while circling new terms, etc.

In addition, what was once my best section (LG) was my worst score!

I'm wondering if it is indeed true that the LG sections of modern tests have gotten easier. I can do untimed LG easily, and when timed I don't have difficulty with most grouping and linear games, but I seem to have horrible difficulty diagramming for mapping and circular games.

Any advice?

It really depends on how much time you devote to studying per week. If you take a very willy nilly approach to prep, then you could invest only a few hours a week for a full year. If you're motivated enough (ie willing to devote 20+ hrs/week) just a couple of months would probably suffice.

I started prepping about 3 weeks ago (3 months before the Oct. LSAT) and I'm already seeing significant gains (my diagnostic was a 151 - primarily because I wasn't managing my time well enough). I try to devote a minimum 20 hours per week, and tackle 2-3 preptests per week; although, if you can afford to do more, by all means.

Great! thanks for the quick reply.

By the way, do you know if admissions officers consider the undergraduate program and institution when consider applicants for admission?

My first year grades were less than par, and I'm attending a notoriously difficult school, but I'm still managing a fairly high GPA (top 3 years, averaged).

Does anyone have any information regarding the average times the OLSAS applications are available online? I checked the OUAC website for dates ( and they provide a very nondescriptive date of "Early August 2008". And how is information gathered by OLSAS - such as transcripts, references, LSAT, etc... ?

Id greatly appreciate if anyone is willing to share any past experiences with OLSAS. Thanks!
