I have about another year of college left and have consecutively scored in the 170s on the practice tests and over the 6 I have taken, not one was below 170. The only downside is that I have not timed each section of them and allow myself to take all the time I need to answer the questions. But, I don't go over what is allotted on the actual test, 2 hours and 55 minutes. I spend more time on logic games as I have a tendency to map out the game and map out as many possibilities as I can (no more than 5 though) as that helps me with the few questions that follows a specific game. For the logical reasoning I take the time to jot down a few interesting concepts presented in the wording and I look for the wrong answers before I come to a decision on answering the question. For reading comprehension, I mostly ace that section of the test.
As for my UGPA; 3.85 and majoring in philosophy and international studies, but because I am practically finished, I will pick up a finance major next semester since I only need 9 classes to complete it. So far, so good though, and finance is pretty easy for me anyway, so I hope to increase my UGPA to 3.92 if I can.
Does the LSAT exam provide scratch paper? I run through a lot of paper when doing the practice tests.
I am trying to get into an Ivy League right now. I attend a well respected private college in the state and have had volunteered at various organizations pertaining to the field of law, and have been mentored by a well respected lawyer at a top law firm in the state. Just wondering if that will add to my resume when applying to an Ivy League (Harvard and Yale are my top choices).
I was thinking about taking the LSAT during the fall of my last year, but I have been conflicted. Should I just study for another year then take it, or just study for the next few months and then take it? I have more free time this year and spring of next year due to my class load being smaller, so I could study more, but I believe I am ready now, and I also believe if I do take it now I would be just rushing into it. I just need some more opinions on the matter before deciding.
