My practice test average was a 130 and my actual LSAT was a 122. I told Cooley and they asked me to "swear" that I was telling the truth. I said I was. They admitted me, and now I am in the 75% of all Cooley students with my 130 practice LSAT score. DOWNY loves Cooley. DOWNY hates superiorlobe. Superiorlobe, you are a dumbass.

I scored 3 points higher than my best practice test too.  That was mostly due to the relatively small number of AR questions in the June test, though.

So do I (tend to be a good test taker).  Makes me cry.   :'(

RC killed me.  I wish there had been more games section.  I miss games.  I wish I still had some left from TM :)

I feel you on the RC (June 04  :( )...games were always my best section.

Scored five points below my highest, one point below my average.

I think I took your 175, Pookie.  It was the long RC section that gave me the extra points.  Of the 3 full practice tests I took, I got a 166, 169 and 172.  I was just hoping to break 170.

Maybe this whole thing about scoring lower is due to the fatigue factor (the extra unscored section).  That is, unless you guys usually do 5 sections on your own.  Damn, I don't want a 155.

I dunno, I think that RC was complain-worthy no matter how you scored.

Unless you're lexy, who thought it wasn't so bad   ::)

Nope.  People with scores higher than mine don't get to complain.  About anything, LSAT related or not.  That's the new rule.  ;)

Okay, complain away.


I'm not going to complain, I still want that picture of you and Lexi celebrating getting into YLS!

There's a certain amount of randomness involved -> does the actual test present material that hits your strengths or hits your weaknesses?

First practice test utterly cold never seeing this stuff before I got a 171. Lowest practice was 161, and 4 tied for highest at 176. My practice average was 173. My actual was 170. Yeah, I'd a liked to have scored closer to those 4 highests, but considering I only needed a 164, it was overkill, and now I gotta persuade my desired school to take me anyway.

Damn you, give it back!  ;)  Congrats on your score, though :)

Not for me.  My first section was RC, which was my worst section on the real test (though it usually wasn't on diags).  My last section was games, and I scored perfectly.  I usually did 5 sections on my own.  I broke up a couple diags from TM to spread across the others, so that each one had 5 sections in the end.

I would, I think I'll need it.  ;-)

My 3rd and 4th sections were both AR, and the first was the diagnostic.  It was always my worst section in practice tests, and only the fact that there were only 22 questions saved me.
