Law School Discussion

My first diagnostic score

My first diagnostic score
« on: September 26, 2007, 11:45:29 PM »
Background:Prior to taking diagnostic have read LGB, half of LRB, some RC's from Kaplan.
I was always afraid to take the full lsat, so i was taking only separate sections or even question/ problems. Today I went to a study room in my dorm and took the test. I took the XV test and scored 141.
My distribution by sections is
I section -13
II section-12
III section- 9
IV section-7

My theoretical goal was 165=<x<=170, which is necessary for me in order to go to a good school. Obviously, after this diagnostic my goal seems to be very unrealistic. What would you do if you were me? I just wanted to hear some opinions.

Assuming that you're not taking the test in 3 days, then relax.  You won't raise your score just by reading those books.  You have to practice doing timed tests.  A 170 is statistically tough to get, but don't rule it or strong scores in the 160s out.  Provided that you're not trying to take the September '07 test, then you have time.
