I know how you feel.  I'm not in the same range as you but had the same problem.

I have a hypothesis that people tend to score apprx 10 points higher on their real test than their diagnostic take or give about 5 points and tend to score towards the bottom  of their practice range.

I'm going to just leave it at... your hypothesis doesnt apply to me.

It depends on where your located.  I've seen some listed on craigs list.  Local law schools or universities would be another possibility.  Then again you might request PMs from people on LSD by letting them know where your located.

Skip the courses.  Find a tutor.  It is the best way to spend your money.  A tutor will focus on your weaknesses while a class will focus on everyones and you will waste many hours on your strengths.  If you want a more elaborate explanation check out my other posts on this subject.

I am going to take about 40 practice tests, re-read the powerscore books, and take a class, and hopefully I can improve significantly..

Seriously I cant stress this enough... skip the class.  Spend your money on a tutor.  The classes waste a lot of time.  You end up sitting through hours of review on stuff you understand.  The tutor will focus on your weaknesses.

1. Are classroom courses helpful? They are pretty damn expensive  I just want to know which ones are the best and if they are even worth the $1,000 plus you pay for them

I took a PS course and I'm not thrilled with my improvement.

Forget the course find a great tutor and spend your money wisely.  If you need me to elaborate search my posts.  I've been rallying against these courses for a few weeks now.

I tied off and shot some smack during the break.

Bet that took the edge off.

You know how every time there are high scorers completely surprised to score in the 160s?  I want to be the low scorer who somehow accidentally scores in the 170s.

Lets start a club.

Judging from your 'tar, you look like a pretty cute chick, but judging from your past posts, you sound vapid and your explanations are not good at all. The few acceptable explanations you have posted are just rehashes of other people's explanations. While I agree with you that a high lsat score doesn't necessarily guarantee success, I do believe that you have been bamboozled, hoodwinked, run amok! Led astray.

Ever consider that perhaps you were being conned by your friend "who scored 177" because he was out to tap some fine, young, asian booty? I do that all the time, with a nearly 100% success rate. When I'm interested in a girl, I pretend to be "simple and slow" around her so she doesn't view me as the manipulative womanizer until she's already given up the poonani. In fact, one of my most successful ploys (guys take note) is to get the girl to "tutor" me in some easy class, like the ones required for pre-med majors, long enough for me to make my moves. Once I've achieved coitus, I move on to my next target.

PS. Did your friend succeed in getting some poonani from you? I know I would had you in bed within a week. lol

Wow.  He knows what he posted is so uncool that he didnt even use his original handle.  Women take note that there are men like this out there in case you havent come across one yet.

I went to highschool with a guy like this.  Today he has 5 daughters.  Thats karma for you.

The books that PS supplied with the course had a great deal of detail.  The best aspect of them was that they organized the LR questions into categories so you could practice the techniques on groups of them at a time.  For explanations on the LR you might still have to come here or ask a tutor... the LG had pretty good explanations.  They also provide all the old LSATs in one of the books too.
