I took my first practice LSAT 3 weeks ago.  I used the Kaplan software from the prep book and got a 154.  I have always done well on standarized tests and am hoping to attend a top 15 law school, so was shocked by my score.  I've only been studying for 3 weeks, but have seen a dramatic increase in score.  After reading through a couple books I was scoring in the low 160s.  I took a previously administered LSAT today and scored a 169.  I am eventually hoping to get a 175 on the final test.  I think your initial score can be improved dramatically with about a month of studying.  After a large increase I think progress will be much slower, but still possible.  Panicking will only hinder your studying, just keep studying and see how you are doing in about 6 weeks.  There are pages of success stories within the posts on this board, spend some time reading through and you will find many more cases of improved scores  :)     

Law School Admissions / Re: Question about dates on resume

I have a similar problem.  I took college courses the last two years of high school.  I'm hoping the admissions people will be smart enough to realize I was at the community college while still in high school.  I'm not sure how to state it on my resume either.  Am hoping they will just notice that the dates overlap.  I imagine that many students applying to law school went to community college during high school, so the admissions committee should be quick to realize that.   

Thank you all for the help.  It now makes a little more sense:)  It is very good to know that this game is in the Logic Games Bible (I'm planning on buying that!).  

Hello everyone!  I am currently studying for the LSAT with the 10 More Actual LSAT book.  I normally do ok on the logic games, I often run out of time, but can always figure them out afterward.  However, on Test # 28, Section 2, logic game 2 (? 6-12) I am having huge problems.  The setup:

To prepare for fieldwork, exactly 4 researchers- a geologist, historian, linguist, and paleontologist- will learn at least one and at most three of the four languages- Rundi, Swahili, Tigrinya, and Yoruba.  They must learn languages according to these specifications:
Exactly 1 learns Rundi, Exactly 2 learn S, Exactly 2 learn T, Exactly 3 learn
Any language learned by the L or P is not learned by the G. 
Any language learned by the G is learned by the H.

I have a diagram that seems to work, but cannot answer ANY of the questions without trial and error on every option.  This is taking me about 18 minutes for the 6 questions!  This is the hardest logic game I've ever done, I feel as though I must be missing something....  There is no sense in me typing out all of the questions and answers.  But, if anyone is familiar with this question and can help, please, please let me know.

Thank you in advance- Katie

Law School Admissions / Re: When to apply?

FYI- several books recommend not applying before October.  The books (think I read this info in Kaplan and Princeton Review) suggest that if you send in an application before October you chance the application becoming mixed up in enrollment/beginning of the school year paper work.  I have also been advised several times that enrolling too early can be as chancy as enrolling too late.  In all honesty I doubt any school would misplace your application, but it is probably best to wait until October to send the applications, especially if you are taking the LSAT then.

Thank you so, so much for posting the test and the answers!  I'm sure all of the October test takers will be just as excited to see it as I am.
