A difference of 4 or 5 questions is a lot.  I looked over the test after I received my score, and although I understand my mistakes now, I still would have chosen my original answers if I were to write it again fresh.  There were 2 questions where I could see myself conceivably choosing the right answer now, instead of what I'd originally chosen.  So I really don't know where I would get an extra 4 or 5 points.  And this is with being careful.

There isn't any room for carelessness on the real test, and I think that's the way it should be. I was careless on practice tests, and that was frustrating because "I" knew that I knew the right answer.  But no one else would know, and there's no other way to prove you know it, short of getting it right.

Not everyone drops on test day.  If you're honest in your practices in regards to timing and testing environment, you stand a great chance of at least hitting your average.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Getting into law school vs. Med school

I read somewhere, recently, that med schools are actually placing less emphasis on the MCAT in admissions. I'm sure it's still very important, but relative to its importance in the past, it isn't weighed as much these days. Most, if not all med schools require an interview.

Funny to think only 1 law school requires an interview and a standardized test is one of the most, if not the most, important part of the application.

This is the case in Canada too.  But I can understand why med schools require an interview whereas law schools don't.  You can have evil lawyers but you can't have evil doctors.  :D

For what it's worth, it was my 4th highest score ever.  Almost perfect in the LR sections, but below average in the games and reading.  This is one test where I didn't read carefully enough or it could've been my best ever.

Would you have to order it?  When would you actually have the book in your hands?  I never used the LG Bible, but I did use the LR Bible.  If they're anything alike, then it will take a long time to get through the book.  For the LR Bible, I found that after I absorbed the info, I had to apply that into practice over many tests before their strategies became habit.  But that's just me.  If money isn't a factor, it might be worth it depending on how much you think you need help.

Always look for what I call the "modest" answer or the one that covers your a$$. 
;D  That's a great way to put it.

(B) would be incorrect because the stimulus doesn't mention the degree of improvement.  It just says that all short-term psychotherapy shows similar levels of improvement.  Whether long-term psychotherapy results in more improvement is irrelevant.

(TCR) would weaken the argument because if the studies primarily concerned immediate symptom relief and didn't address other kinds of improvement, then we don't know if all client improvement in short-term psychotherapy is the result of some aspect of therapy common to ALL psychotherapies.

What score did that person get? 

There are some people who can get away with studying for a month and then killing the test.  Not me though, I had to put in a solid 3 months to get my score.  Well, acutally, I was scoring higher after 2 months, but I was more consistent after 3.

I also know someone who spent 2 years studying for the test but couldn't crack 50th percentile.

I'd say you're safe at UBC, Western and Queen's, and maybe Osgoode depending on your last 3 years.  UT and Ottawa love high GPAs, but with your 171 anything could be possible.  I don't know enough about McGill and Victoria, other than the fact that McGill wants applicants to be proficient in French.

I sent mine in three days ago.   ;D
Too close for comfort, but I know some people who'll be working on it until the 11th hour.
