If you look at June '04, Oct 04' and Dec 04' they are all 100 questions. December, because they voided a question was only 99 in fact!

How was the test in comparison to the others? Harder/easier. I thought October was probably the hardest of the most recent. How did it compare?

Law School Admissions / On-line applications question

I noticed the LSAC's online application program requires a windows plugin. I have a Mac, can I still use it? Do I have to buy that virtual PC program to use it?

Law School Admissions / Multiple LSAT help!

What do people think?

So I took the test in October and got a 160. I was really sick( I have a doctors note) and my test was all screwed up. I am a LD student and take my tests with extra time and the test administrator screwed up and I had to wait in at the test center for 5 hours before I could take my test and my test booklet was messed up so I had to stop in the middle and get another one. I really should have canceled, but I didn't think it would have effected me SO much!

I retook the test and got a 172.

Considering there is a 12 point difference in my score and I feel like I have legitimate reasons for saying the first score isn't relevant. Do you think schools that claim to only average would still average my scores?

P.S- I just found this board and I think its great!

I had similiar fluctuations at first, I started with around a 163 and would jump test to test between a 163 and a high 160s. After a lot of practice tests though I cemented my score in the 170s. If your learning new techniques you might still be unsure of them, the more you practice the more you will find the huge number of repeated answers and your score will probably stabilize.

Also, you should get the past LSATs, its better to take the actual questions( the real questions are ALL basically the same) than to take parallel but not exactly the same ones.

more people take the october test, so the scaling can be more difficult than other administrations. Also, one has to wonder if a few points( especially in the mid to high 170s) higher in october and applying in November wouldn't be disadvantagous to a slightly slowly, albeit great score, right away. Everyone I've talked to has said that applying ASAP is one of the biggest determinants of admissions.

on grouping games, the one pointer I can think of that saves time is during your set up label all the deductions you can make. For example, if you look at the the fourth game on the October 2004 test, if given a clue that says something like Webnesday is bigger than Friday and you lable Webnesday as not being able to be the smallest variable, that already answers one of the questions. often times, those type of simple deductions are questions. Hope this helps.

Where are you thinking of appling?
