My 168 was in June--I was averaging about 176 in the weeks before that test. There were a couple of reasons that that specific test wasn't good for me: part of it was just nerves. I missed a couple of LR questions that were really obvious as soon as I took a second look at them, and the new reading comp hurt--that passage cost me three questions alone. Plus, the curve was crazy, to say nothing of the fact that taking the June test sucks in general.I spent 15-20 hours a week starting around the middle of August making sure that my timing was still good... I felt confident going into the September test.If you're thinking about putting it off until next year, I'd seriously recommend considering the February test instead of the June one. We didn't even get started until almost two, plus you have the whole morning to freak yourself out.
To spite LSAC? ...but you'd be dropping one hundred-whatever dollars right in their pocket...?
165, although if I get 165-169, I might apply to some schools with that, and then go for a higher score in Dec for my reaches.However, since I can't even remember the first two sections due to the distraction in my testing room, I would be surprised if I break 162.

So I'll buck it up and pay another $130, as clearly, despite any experiences I have had or knowledge I may possess, the most important thing in showing I can succeed in law school is a 169 on a four hour test.

WHen you figure a way for admission commmittees to see the knowledge in your head, or to evaluate the experiences in such as way as to eb as predictive of 1L grades as the LSAT, then you have a right to gripe. As long as this is the best method, save the whining for people who care.
