How many points do people tend to drop from their PTs? Do some people improve on the real test?

Ok, would English being my second language give me any edge in admissions? (Like schools considering my LSAT score)

Although your work experience is above average. A 3.1/mid range 160 won't even get you into the door steps of T14. You might get a shot at Georgetown with a 170+. No shot at NYU period.
But then again, this changes if you are URM.
Ok. this is getting a little bit ridiculous. after doing tons of RC practice timed sections and getting at the max 7 wrong on a section (I STILL NEED TO IMPROVE). took a PT today from 6/06 and got destroyed on the RC section.
I know I need to improve more on LR but when i was taking this i was so out of it. But RC i thought i crushed it but wtf?
that 11 wrong is preventing my score from jumping.. please help..
My LSAC gpa according to my calculations based off of numbers from LSAC is 3.35 (I know it's pathetic).
I just want to know if writing an addendum for my low gpa would help in admissions at all. I transferred from a small school to a large school after my freshmen year and had a difficult time adjusting my first semester. On top of that during that period my mom was diagnosed with a possibility of ovarian cancer and had to get surgeries (thank god shes ok now) - but that disrupted my focus ALOT.
Would that information be any of help in admissions?
Would a recommendation from a family member help at all? I know this may sound like a stupid question.....but my uncle is the minister of finance for a country..probably third in line for the presidency (I'm really sorry I'm not trying to brag at all).
Would getting a recommendation from him help me at all with my chances in admissions?
hahah, i love the fact that you remember that i've been studying since march. I mean I'm not going "crazy" really. I've just been doing tons of hw that testmasters has given me and doing PTs on the side - of course everything timed. I'm not overly crazy about the 15 pt jump but 11-13 would be nice.
just did 2 sections (LR and LG) 4 wrong in LR 1 wrong in LG. thank GOD I'm getting a grip around the LR section.
thanks for your input liz. and retaking it really isn't an optimal option for me. but of course if it comes down to it there is the sept/oct exam.
There's 3 weeks left till the june 8th exam and i am signed up for it. so far my PTs have been around 163ish (5/6 wrong on LRs; 0/3 wrong on LGs; and 4/6 wrong on RCs).
Is it possible to raise it about 10-15 points in three weeks? has anyone done it?!? any advice?!? Thanks!
