You would have been wiser to claim a 174 or 175 score. Unlike every day life, the adage to "go big or don't go at all" is not usually the best strategy in battles of reasoning.

The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error.

I hate how when people on this board argue, they try to judge the validity of the opponent's argument rather than just bitching. This is the internet, it's for bitching. Bitching is not always logical. You guys suck the fun out of arguing.

I disagree. It's very amusing to watch people squirm.

Milton, that was both logical and bitchy, not to mention entertaining.

The LSAT doesn't test bitchiness. I wish it did.

I don't follow.  If I did, in fact, get a 178, why shouldn't I claim thus?  Furthermore, I'm not convinced this was a real battle of reasoning, more of a Q & A.  I do appreciate you dropping the whole "we" talk though.

I went from a 140 to a 139 (both in practice), to 150 on the actual test.  Study all you want, after you get the basic concepts its mostly how well you take tests.  Good luck and have fun waiting. 

Just like Tom Petty says...
