Canada, major trading partner, South Korea, minor trading partner. That is all, please carry on.
Samsung, Hyundai, Daewoo, Kia, eMachines, LG, .... I'd say Korea's pretty high on the list. Sure, Canada is way bigger than Korea, but I wouldn't call Korea minor by any stretch.
Yes, yes, yes. Daewoo is so impressive.
There is a major drop off in our trading our top six trading partners. Calling a country that makes up .5% of our trade a "major" partners is not correct. That is like calling Daewoo a major player in the car business. Are they a player, sure? Are they a major player like the Big Three, Toyota, etc? No.

I'd recommend you aim high. You never know who will like you (or for what reason), and you might be surprised like I was. I also got all of my applications sent in in October, so I'm sure that didn't hurt, and it's nice to get acceptances and scholarship offers early.
I got accepted to a few schools that really surprised. I also got rejected by one or two that really surprised. I really recommend people aim high, and apply to a lot of schools early.

You stand a legitimate shot at every single one of your "goal schools." In fact, you are 50% on the LSAC UGPA/LSAT calculator at several of those schools. Your biggest concern, with your present numbers, will be which school offers you the most money, not whether or not you get in.
Good luck and get your apps in early!

Should I retake in October? I have a 3.8 ugpa and a 165 lsat.
I hate predicting admission chances... but, with those numbers and no especially grand softs, I suspect you could go as high as USC, rankings-wise.
Those aren't bad numbers. 165 is a longshot for most of the T14 (though, not unheard of), so if you have your heart set on those schools, you will want to re-take.
i suggest getting apps out to some of your top picks now, and if you are willing to re-take in october, do so, and make sure they know that there is a score update. If you do worse, most schools won't hold it against you.
Those numbers are in the Georgetown 25-75%. Why are they a long shot for T14?

Weird, I wouldn't really consider South Korea one of our major trading partners in comparison to Canada, China, Mexico, etc.
Furthermore, the OP did not state "South Korea." Don't assume the OP meant either one.
Are you stupid? Of the 195 countries in the entire world, South Korea is our 7th largest trading partner. South Korea isn't a "major trading partner". What the hell are kids smoking nowadays?? Holy poo
Are you stupid? You post the same thing twice. Don't you know about redundancy? 195 countries in the world, 100 of which are not developed or industrialized, another 70 which are marginally developed or industrialized, let's put this in perspective. Canada, major trading partner, South Korea, minor trading partner. That is all, please carry on.

Also, make sure your last 5-10 exams utilize mock experimental (5th) sections, so your endurance is fully developed.
There is no way to prep for an experimental section, because the questions are different than actual sections. You may run into questions that don't even make sense in the experimental.
No, I mean you have to prep for the fact you'll have 5 sections on the real thing, not four. Many people skip this step, and end up fatigued on the last section, which pretty much always counts.
Time is more efficiently spent making sure the test taker understands every
question in a section. If a person has properly prepared, things like fatigue and test anxiety will be minimal. Once a person understands a majority of questions, a couple of timed tests are good for pacing, but fatigue was not an issue for me on test day. My adrenalin was pumping, there was no way I was going to fall asleep on the final section.

When I do a timed LG section outside of a full exam (IE, just do the LG section from an older exam and don't do the LR or RC), I have no problem getting nearly all the questions done, but I can never get more than 18 to 20 done when I'm doing them in an actual testing situation. When I did the LGB I went through pretty thoroughly, but I plan on looking over it every few weeks to refresh. While I was doing it, I was scoring between 20 and 24 correct in each LG section I did, but now I'm back down to 16 to 18 correct. Oh well; I've got plenty of material to practice on.
And you were telling me you are scoring 99%+ on real tests in another thread?
Miss 10-15 questions and you are out of the 170s. With giving up 6-10 questions in one section, are you acing every other section?!
That's not Lindbergh's post, that's a post from snickersnicker. He just jacked up the quote.
Perfect score Lindbergh can't properly quote?
I believe you're the one that misquoted me with your creative cutting and pasting there. Nice try, though.
OK, I am back to "lol."
P.S. Do you drink?

What if someone started at 150, and then got up to 160 with the bibles, etc. what would you recommend at that point?
I am not going to say someone cannot learn something in a Kaplan class, even if they have scored a 175 on an actual test. I am sure there is always something someone can learn, even Robin Singh, but if someone has gotten their score up to a 160 on an actual test they can make more efficient use of their time on their own.
A lot of the material in a prep class will be below their level once they are scoring 160+ on an actual test. Spending their time working hard to understand every question in the PowerScore Bibles will be far more efficient than sitting in a class that spends time going over things like reading a question stem first, etc.

The point, again, is that you're new to the exam, and you therefore don't understand it that well -- whatever you got on it. That's nothing to be ashamed of. It does mean however, that your understanding is limited, and the helpfulness of your advice will also therefore be limited. That's all. Nothing to get your panties in a bunch about.
I know what works to score 170+ on an actual exam, and that is not some overpriced Kaplan class. In fact, a Kaplan class is counterproductive for many people, because it is time that should be spent with a PowerScore Bible, studying.
