I just took a test(June 1997) and ended up with a 155 after improving with 159 and 162 on my last two. Quite frustrating, I got slaughtered on the LR with 28/51. There's still 5 weeks until the test so hopefully I can get this all figured out...
LSAT is a real b**tch ain't it?
They tease you in to thinking you've improved, to only crush you on the next one. It happens to everybody and hopefully all of us can gain soem consistency in 4weeks.(yes we only have 4weeks left!!!)
I'm planning to write one preptest on monday and if I don't score around 156-160 I'm seriously going to write a suicide note.
I think the best thing is to always do the preptest early in the morning, like the time you would normally write the actual preptest. Only then do you really know if you're improving or not. A lot of it has to do with fatigue and conditioning anyways. Good luck.
