Studying for the LSAT / Re: Official June REVERSE Splitters
« on: July 03, 2008, 06:18:37 PM »
3.957 + decent soft factors (Mainly immigration issues + internship with immigration non profits)-can write a good PS about my passion in immigration/human rights. 

162. 10 points below last PT, 8 points below average.

Retake in Oct. Goal 170+

162! Completely in shock because I was averaging 170 on PTs (Last PT #53 I scored 172). Nerves got the better of me. The same LR questions I would usually knock out in my sleep I was getting wrong.

RC -6 Cakewalk and Comparative
LR -7 3 out of first 10 wrong. Got all the easy questions wrong because I was rushing.
LR -5 Very upset at myself for getting 5 wrong on such an easy LR section.
LG -2 I was always getting -0 and a few times -1. Just made some really stupid careless mistakes.

Will retake in October. Hopefully if I break 170 with my UGPA (3.965) I can get into a t-14 school (Hoping for Columbia, NYU, Boalt)

Yankee, are you from NY? I'm wondering if the scores are released regionally

Studying for the LSAT / Re: June 2008 Curve Prediction

I had a weird dream last night too.  I dreamt that I received a 173, but the score corresponded to the 52nd percentile.  Not really sure what this means...are there any strict Freudians out there??

It probably means that you have the type of personality in which you are never content with your achievements and you always downplay all your accomplishments because in your opinion, they are not spectacular relative to others.

But Freud would probably say something about your mom or dad having some sort of childhood influence on you. His theories have all pretty much been disproved along with B.F. Skinner's. But he nevertheless remains a popular figure of psychology.

Get a proctor and tell him that if you don't score over 170, you'll give him $500.00 but if you do get over 170 he'll give you $200.00

That should simulate real testing conditions.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How to go from a 147 to a 169
« on: June 23, 2008, 01:16:45 PM »
The TestMasters guy who is teaching in Dallas got a 180 on the real thing and is only 18 years old. Nobody can question TM's talent pool.

I'd rather someone who went from a 147 to a 169 teaching me than someone who goes from a 175 to a 180. Sometimes when you just get the LSAT, it's hard to teach b/c you can't understand why other people cannot understand this stuff.

I found myself doing Cakewalk in the bathroom

I hope this isn't a flame.

I had dreams about the LSATs on Monday and Tuesday night. I've stopped thinking about the test as much since. Been trying to busy myself with work and just realizing that it is out of my hands. I think once Saturday is over and you can no longer cancel, you'll stop worrying as much.

This post is for those of you, who are depressed right now about your prep test scores,

I know many people on this board are gunners who land in the upper 160's or 170's the first time they take a prep test, but for those of you who are more like me (first diagnostic = 147) here are some pointers that may actually help.


WOAH...my initial diagnostic was also 147. I was practicing in the 170-172 range during the weeks coming up to the test. I understand how much hard work you must have done to get the 169 on the real thing. Congratulations on all your success, you are an inspiration. I hope my June LSAT is reflective of my hard work as well...though I feel like I may have scored below my practice tests. If you don't mind me asking, how were you practicing the weeks before the test?
