me too AJ 155 "cold". I have been procrastinating....supposed to take the feb test and have't studied a damn bit since finals ended. and yes to whoever said this board is not representative...it is not even close
I did no prep for the actual LSAT in June, wasn't really even sure what it was about(quite surprised that it had LG) and got a 166. At the time I was not entirely sure I wanted to go to law school and did not realize how important the LSAT is, or even that one could prep for it. I figured I would take it is I did poorly then I would take it again(didn’t realize either that scores are average.) In hindsight it was an incredibly stupid move and I wish I had done some LG practice to learn the tricks and methods for them instead of trying to remember back to when I used to do them as a kid. Probably could have raised my score a bit. but I lucked out and all is well. I would highly recommend taking a practice test then preparing according. A lot has to do with how you learn tings. If you are someone for some lots of studying for a test makes you more confident and do better then go for it. If you are not, then just look up some stuff, take a few practice tests and go for it.
My first cold LSAT was a 158 ... not spectacular, but not horrible, either. And I was particularily inspired by a friend of mine who got the same initial score and got a 170 on the real thing. So I practiced, cancelled one due to nerves, practiced some more. In Feb I took it and got a 166, which was significantly below my 170ish recent average. Maybe it was the hardness of the chairs, the badly-muffled construction noise outside, or the lack of space on the logic games. Who knows. Something just happens to me during the LSAT that plumments my actual score a couple points down. Ah, well; can't complain.
