I took a practice test today after not even looking at a study book since I took the test in December. I scored a 170, what I was averaging before I took the December LSAT. ARG!!! I take this as strong evidence that this is the range I should have scored at in December. Instead I became very anxious and ended up with a 160. And yes I have always used realistic timed conditions. So I don't think I can be happy without giving it another whirl in June. If I bomb again I can go to Iowa this fall anyway. What do I need to do to avoid another melt down come June? Should I not study so hard this time? I know it is realistic to expect a small drop on test day, but if I could even pull a 165-7 I would completely change my prospects.
I agree pretty much 100% with what you said Pigeon. Reading your thoughtful post to Blue Suede pretty much just made my night!
