My first diagnostic was a 153. While studying for the June LSAT, I reached 159 once. Mostly, it stayed around 156. I was using Princeton Review books and only spent 6 weeks studying. And I only took maybe 2 full length tests.  To say the least, I bombed, ended up with a 154.

I'm retaking it.  After spending over a month going through the LR Bible, my untimed LSAT average was around 170.  Last night I scored 168 on a timed LSAT. So, yeah. Much better.  I'll let you know the third week in October how much I really bring my score up. I'm hoping at least 10 points.

Very first test, timed (although I went about 5 minutes over on games) 163.  Now I'm averaging 167-172, mostly around 169 or 170, though.  I'll be happy with anything above a 166 on the real deal.  I practiced about 3 months but not every day.

1st test was a Princeton Review fake test--162 (late January).  My first actual diagnostic was the September 1996 administered by Princeton Review when they came to campus to promote their classes--161 (early/mid February).  Currently score range is anywhere from 168 to 180, but it's been pretty consistently in the low to mid-170s.

Hey, F18s fly over my apartment too.

The Blue angles were in Seattle performing at the time.  Literally, about 500 ft above the building, it was a tad bit distracting.
