Multiple LSAT scores
« on: December 24, 2005, 01:06:59 PM »
Hey all,

Went from 145 in Oct to 155 in Dec. Will schools weigh the 155 more or should I apply based on the 150 average?

Actually some schools drop the lower LSAT score if they see a significant increase in score, which is just like your case.

I'd call the schools up and mention the scenario.  Again, although many schools average out scores there are some good schools that take the higher one on the condition that there is a drastic improvement.

The question now I HAVE to ask you is how did you get a 10 point jump in about 1 1/2 month time? What did you do? How did you study?

This is how I raised my score by 10 points in 1 1/2 months:

Bought a silent timer and got serious about studying. I've been out of school a few years so it wasn't easy. I concentrated on the LR sections since it makes up so much of the test.

Attended the PowerScore Weekend session. Felt like alot of info crammed into the time but I got as much out of it as I could. They also supply you a book of about 10 real practice tests to do at home.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
