I took 50 last week and got the 170 on that. I'm going to take 51 on Thursday. Beyond that, I've got nothing above the late 30s left to take.How did I know that "take another test!" was going to be the first reply...?Does it matter? Keep working hard from now until Monday, and do your best on Monday. That is all you can do. Worrying about whether or not you've "cracked" it, and whether you are going to get a 170 or a 175 is a waste of mental energy.[/font]Well, simply put, a 175 can open up a few more law schools that a 170 wouldn't necessarily. I could consider applying to NYU with 175, whereas I'd almost certainly be rejected with 170.
I'll be the first to humor you and answer your question. Based on your analysis, yes I really think you are there. Assuming that you are doing everything legit, i.e. timing yourself, doing fresh material, etc., then this is great news for you. The fact that you scored 2 170s recently shows that you basically have command of the test and now you're just refining it and improving accuracy on material you fundamentally understand. That doesn't mean you should expect a 175 on the real thing, just because that's so top-of-the-scale and it's easy to fall away from a top spot; but looks like you are a solid for a strong 170+ score. Congrats to you.
