I took that PT this morning. I got my highest score yet on a PT - a 173 (although, it was a pretty forgiving curve).
I'm interested in any responses to the snake/lizard set up. I found I just had to apply the rules to each question and it was time consuming. Maybe that's the deal with this game, but if anyone out there would have relied on inferences, I'd be happy to hear all about it...because I haven't certainly haven't cornered the market on Games...
173, nice score, was it timed? Also, how long did it take you to get through the snake game?

I have been flying through the games with relative ease until I recently went over the 20's preptests; with pt 27 I hit a wall. I eventually got through the game untimed and did well but I was wondering if anyone out there pulled off a decent setup/score in a timed fashion and if so how?? I must say, this one was tough. For a refresher its the one with the 7 houses for male/female snakes and lizards.

georgetown pt might be a solid possibility. I believe there 75% was 167. Also, 3.3 is still within their 25% range. With some good extra factors such as work experience, age, etc.. you should have a legitimate shot.

I will be taking a philosophy course which focuses on many of the skills that are used in the lsat. A friend of mine took it and she said that premises, conclusion, sufficient, and all the other lsat buzz words were discussed throughout the class. I'm taking it anyways, but was wondering if anyone gained a significant advantage in studying by taking a course such as this?

i appreciate all of the feedback. for the record the disorderly conduct was related to a bar fight. As for bar eligibility I have been looking into that but no one has gotten back to me yet. I live and plan on practicing in NY so if any knows their rules I would appreciate the info.

I have read that on apps it is best to be honest and write about the infractions. I am definately going to do this but I was wondering what the consensus was on arrests, I didn't kill anyone or break into any bank vaults, but will schools drop me down their lists due to the two infractions. For the record the first arrest was six years ago for petit larceny and the second was four years ago for disorderly conduct. Of course I can explain them both but then again as the saying goes everyone in prison is inocent.

the 158 and 160 were done 1 week apart after 2 months, sorry for the confusion, my first thread should have been more clear. Anyways as far as diagnostic goes I scored a 141 at a free kaplan test. At this time though I new nothing and was unaware that logic games were part of the test (needless to say that threw me off a bit). Thanks for the input though, I suppose the bottom line is to never stop studying.

I have been studying for about 2 months and have taken two timed practice tests-158,160. I plan on taking the june test and was wondering if my 160 mark was similiar to those who have scored high after practicing for a similiar time. I know this sort of thing is an inexact science but I'm just wondering how my pace is compared to those who have scored high (170's, high 160's).

Jeffort, nice schedule. But when did you find time for work, school, sex, etc..? Also, how long did you run at this pace?
