LSAT score

LSAT score
« on: April 18, 2011, 10:44:44 AM »
So I just started a Testmasters prep course. I scored a 149 on the first diag (with no studying) and a 152 three weeks into the course. What is the likelihood that my score will be in the 160s by the end of the course? What is the typical increase after taking these prep courses? I haven't put in any real studying yet...I plan to do so all summer before the October test.

What do you think of the Testmasters course? I'm signed up to take it in July.

I definitely think it has been great thus far...the real kicker is trying to get enough time to do the homework they assign before the next class. Luckily for me, I have an entire summer to really put in the necessary hours. I would definitely recommend it, though. I already feel more confident about the test and I just started.

Hey I just started Testmasters as well. My first diag was a 151...the second a 152, and I was wondering the same thing myself. Our instructor told us not to worry, as he sees very few students improve between the first and second diags, but instead that most see a jump in their scores by the time the third diag rolls around.

Oh and, to my knowledge, the LSAT isn't offered in July but rather June. Check your admission ticket on your LSAC account, they are already up there.

Keep us updated on your progress!

 :D I was actually talking about which section of TM's course I had signed up for, not the LSAT.  Thanks for the input, it sounds like it's worthwhile.

I can't decide if I'm going to take the Oct test or postpone until Dec.  It all depends on my scores and the TM course.  Best of luck to the both of you.

Haha...that certainly makes more sense. Yeah I'm unsure whether to postpone too, I will give it another month and see where I stand.

Best of luck to you all.
