did read through the whole post. Just wanted to say, not all hope is lost. When I was practicing, I started around 152 and brought my score up to a 167 (ended up a little lower on the real test, but there were extenuating circumstances). Just needed to read through a few books and learn a few skills. If all you were doing is taking practice test, I cannot imagine you were actually learning anything. Unlike the SAT, the LSAT isnt about memorizing. You need to actually learn how to take the test itself. I hope for you that a prep course will get you in the right direction. And, if you do not get the score that you wont, dont let it bring you down. I didnt end up with the one I wanted (really would have loved low 170s), had the lowest lsat score of any of the admits to my school (based on lawschoolnumbers data for non-URMs), and finished at the top of my class in law school. It can be done. This test doesnt define you. It is important, but you can learn the material and improve. Just need to focus your attention on the right thing.
