On my very first diagnostic, I got only 10 of the games that I answered right. I also ran out of time and had to guess on the last 6, gviving me a an 11 out of 22 for that section. A 154 on the test.
After studying just games strategy for one day, I took it again the next day (games section only) using what I learned, and finished with time to spare, and only missed 2. That alone would would have raised my score to a 163. Imagine what another month or two of practice can do, along with improving strategies in other areas of the test as well. (In fact I will tell you...In October!)
Anyway, I agree. With a low starting point and some hard work I think 20 points is not out of the question. The question is, How bad do you want it?
Okay, not very original, but since you asked... I just started One-L. Also I figure if there's ever anything I want to read, better read it now, better get it done because once I AM A One-L, it might be a year (or more) until I have time to read again! Any suggestions??
I am in a somewhat similar situation: My practice LSATs are in the low 160s
My GPA is a 2.34 heading into my senior year BUT:
I spent seven years struggling academically, changing majors, in and out of school, lots of Ws and a few Fs, and on and off of academic probation, ultimately having a lapse in college enrollment for a couple of years. Then, after being diagnosed and successfully treated for ADHD, I returned to school at age 26, where since returning I will have completed SIX consecutive semesters betweeen the 3.3 - 3.6 range. This pace would make my final undergraduate GPA at graduation a 2.5 to be on the conservative side.
So with a lot of subjective factors to consider, ("upward trend in grades" is an understatement!) what are my options with these numbers? : LSAT 162 GPA (2.34 now, 2.5+ at graduation) and 28-29 years old
