I started at a 145 and my test day score was a 169.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: I have 2 years to study...

Personally, I would forget about the LSAT for the next 1.66 years. 4 months or so is all you need to study and improve substantially. People who want to start studying years in advance, and gear their reading habits and even college major towards the LSAT, because they've heard so much about how hard and important the test is, imo are misguided. I improved 24 points in a period of about 3 months taking a total of 15 practice tests. If you're scoring 85% on each section, even if you're taking extra time, 4 months will be more than enough.

How retarded is it that the LSAC website does not properly explain what the Common Information Form is? Am I correct that the CIF does not get transmitted to the law schools?

Honestly, I wouldn't start making your list until the LSAT is in the bag. People often end up 10 points below their practice average.

Don't listen to this. Sometimes, reading this forum will just get you feeling paranoid and negative. Plenty of people score right in line with their practice tests. 10 points is a ridiculous drop.

Asking what your "target" score should be for the LSAT is kind of irrelevant, because all you can do is the best you can do.

Don't listen to Julie...she's a weirdo. During my prep I had one instance where I dropped just about that much, but in subsequent tests I improved again. It's hard to explain the fluctuation that occurs during prep, but it definitely does occur. My advice is to keep with it for the next two weeks. You can only do what you can do.

I still say that gearing your college courses towards the LSAT in any respect is not a good idea, and that you should take courses based on where your intellectual interests lie. Your preparation for the LSAT is going to be focused in the months before you take the test, and that's all you need really.

Law School Admissions / Re: What LSAT Do I need for T14?

A 172 is too high for a T14 offer?  ;)

No lol, but it's too high to be the minimum score the OP needs to have a good shot at a T14 school.

This guy is definitely not who he says he is if he got his uncle's name wrong.
