How indicative?
« on: July 10, 2009, 11:53:46 AM »
Hey all,

My June 09 score was horrible so I started studying for the re-take (Sept 09) since July 1st.  I've gone through all the PT's once (all 58-i think).

I looked through the LRB and made brief notes. Also I decided to re-take all the PTs out there again and try to score above 170+ with all the logical process down for LR.

I took about 8 PTs timed 32 minutes per section with no experimental section and the scores were all higher than my June 09 exam.  The range has been 166-170.  I got 170 twice so far. 

Funny thing is I don't really "remember" the questions from the PTs when I'm taking them.  I go through the logical process for every LR question when I'm taking the PT.  Also same for LG and RC. 

I still got about 50 PTs to go and more incorrect LR questions and logic patterns to memorize and study but I was just wondering - if you did take the LSAT second time and improved - are these scores even slightly representative of what I might score on the Sept 09 exam. 

Or is it too early to tell?

do you mind saying what you got in June? i think that would really help people determine your realistic chances at hitting 170+ considering the great methods youre going through now.

Yes, I'd say that they are.  And the second time, you'll probably be more relaxed.

Well, today I'm just reviewing the incorrect LRs from this past week and "memorizing" them.  Tomorrow I'm going to take another PT.  Hopefully I'll break 170+.

I'm still scared of the Sept 09 LSAT.

Well, if you're scared, you'll keep on studying! :D

Keep studying, and go for the best you can in Sept. But just remeber, you can still be a lawyer with a 160 if you don't do better, so don't over stress yourself thinking the world will end if you don't do better in Sept. You don't need that extra stress/worry.

last two PTs have been quite disappointing. PT #9 and 10.

169 on #9
160 (wtf) on #10 - was the RC in this PT particularly hard?

Are you going in to these tests worrying about what score you get, I mean are you second guessing yourself during the exam becuase your allways thinking I GOTTA GET THIS RIGHT? That can affect your perfromace. Try as best you can to just leave any thoughts about how you will do once you start. Stress can make you doubt your choices. I know its not that easy, but try to go into the test not thinking about the score you want. Worry about that when you score, NOT WHILE YOUR TAKING THE TEST. Keep going, you have the drive and that more than anything will help you, don't give up.
