I'd like to be added to the study group. I took the LSAT for the first time last month and scored 166, which was pretty disappointing for me. I've gone ahead and bought 24 preptests (all post 1996) as well as the LSAC prep book that has the 3 february tests w/ complete explanations. I'm fully prepared to participate as much as I can (I am a college student so I have to juggle this with school work). I'm aiming for at least a 170 and I just can't afford to get the same or a worse score in June.
I have a 3.75 from Northwestern and I just got my score back today- 166. I'm disappointed but am trying to go over my options before I make the choice to re-take in June.
I'm interested in UMich, Cornell, G'town, Penn, possibly Cal and UCLA. Do I have any shot at these schools with my score as it is?
A little additional info about me:
Solid extracurrics (president of College Democrats at my school, French tutor, Tour Guide for my school, and a Peer Health Educator (I teach health workshops to highschool kids in public schools in Chicago).
I will have good recs and good essays.
I speak 3 languages in addition to English (2 fluently, 1 proficiently but am continually improving). I have lived abroad in 2 different countries for 8 years of my life and will incorporate that into essays (as an aside, I didn't go to American schools abroad or otherwise isolate myself from the cultures there, which is why I speak the languages fluently).
Thoughts? I may apply ED to one of these schools if it will help.
If you still don't have an actual strategy for logic games other than 'thinking them through' in your head, I would highly suggest the Powerscore Logic Games Bible. It's the best 40 bucks you'll ever spend. It explains all the different types of games and shows you how to make a diagram for each kind which will make the questions much easier.
Jeffort, I've been on this forum for a few weeks and I find most of your comments to be arrogant and condescending. Furthermore, you seem to use the forum not for the purpose of helping people/getting help but to condescend to them and to carry on conversations that have nothing to do with LSAT studying or getting into law school. If people's questions are so annoying to you, and you clearly have better things to talk about, why don't you spend your time somewhere else?

I feel like I might have been at -12, too. I'm not familiar with many prep tests ... what does a -12 usually come out to be?
