How did you study the last time?

This is what I did last year (took september, retook in december).  For the most part I didn't do much studying again until about three weeks before the exam and if you felt adquately prepared for the september test I would recommend doing the same.  So long as you don't need to learn anything new its not necessary to continue burning yourself out.  I'd take it easy until November and then take some tests just to get your timing back.

I took the September test as well. I probably did not do great; even so, I'm taking a few weeks off before starting to study again.

I'd recommend tutoring (of course I'm biased).  :)

Pardon my ignorance..

Does the LSAC report the highest, both or an average, and what do schools use? 

If I bombed the test and got a 140 but ended up getting a 160 the second time, an average of 150 is still pointless if this is the value the school uses in determining admission.

I am pretty sure the majority of schools take the highest.

The vast majority of schools now do take the highest, although that is a change from a couple of years ago.  ABA recently made it so that schools only had to report the highest score of each student, so consequently most schools are only considering the highest score for admissions.

Depends on the school... some will average, especially the higher-ranked schools.

I think its still good advice. I took tutoring. Mostly so that I wouldnt give up and keep doing the stuff over and over. I think anyone who can afford it should take it. There is a good chance that you will improve.
