OK well I have been stressing out over the upcoming LSAT (if you couldn't tell from my previous posters) and took a diagnoistic test this morning. Well I scored a 157 up from a 150 but there were some "odd circumstances" surrounding this score, so I don't know how I should interpret this score:
A. I took the Oct 2003 LSAT last year and this diagnostic test was also the OCT 2003 LSAT.
B. When I came to the test, I was kinda stressed out because I forgot my Diagnostic Test book at home and was provided a new one by PR. Unfortunetly, I was not allowed to write in the book (and let me tell you, doing games on a seperate sheet and keeping track of the answers was a female dog).
C. The conditions of the test were bad as well. Cell phones going off and the guy next to me busted out with a Peanut Butter sandwhich in the middle of the first section.
Should I consider this score as legitimate? I did not remember any of the games or argument questions at all. I did recognize the topics on the RC section, but only the topics and not the questions. Could I have subliminally known all these questions and would therefore have a little "extra" advantage? It was a whole year since the previous LSAT and I can barely remember where I park my car let alone a 100 question test. Should I consider the crappy circumstances of the test to possibly discount this advantage? Sorry if it sounds like I am making something larger than it should be, but its crunch time and I need to decide if I should hold off until Dec or push for Oct. I know, I should just simply take another test that I have definetly not seen before, but I can't really do that until tomorrow or later. If this score is legit, then THANK YOU to everyone who has helped and to those that recommended the RC Bible!
