Oh also. Maybe post that all as a reply here or another thread. I'm not sure if it's standard for threads, but I think you'd be better off providing some basic test info in the head post.

In regards to your post...

School matters relatively little. High scorers are rarer than Ivy grads who want to go to law school. I'll say that I was relatively surprised at the average LSAT from my "lesser" Ivy institution. That said, the students seemed to outperform their numbers which would seem to indicate that school probably matters to some extent. I think your experience would trump anything of that matter.

I've debated between law school and business school as well. Depending where I end up, I'll probably aim for a Masters in a real estate related area as well. Analyze the options and go with your gut. One thing that is nice is MBA admissions are way more holistic than LSAT. It's harder to get in on the margins but you're less likely to get rejected with good scores.

The legal market isn't really bad per say. I think when most people refer to too many lawyers they are largely referring to the glut of schools towards the bottom that are of questionable value to many of their attendees.

Score drops aren't uncommon when you start prepping. Generally, it's because you slow down when you begin prepping, so you either don't finish sections or are rushed on final questions. I think this is most common in LR.

Imma piggyback off of 34's post and add my two cents as well.

These are all legitimate grievances, I liked someone in the Pithypike thread said something along the lines of, "You need to be a robot on test day, no emotions or feelings just work."

segwaying from that as for your study plan if you haven't tried PP's plan, I liked it a lot and will be pretty much redoing it over the next 6 months (I took am working a full time job, probably not as labor/mental intensive as yours). It got me PTing at a very high level and if I didn't have shit luck, I might not be sitting here right now.

exercise is good, just don't try to do a 1RM a 2 weeks from your projected test day and fuck your back up like someone... me.

How to fix your worries

1. Exercise at night right after work, it'll get your blood pumping and you'll feel ready to go.
2. It is a lengthy process, there is 6 months to get better; Arnold Schwarzenegger didn't become Mr. Olympia in a week it takes patience and hard work.
3. Take breaks! be healthy go chill with friends, make 1 day of the week no LSAT.
4. idk lol I do this too
5. And I am a naive little baby so I cannot answer this

Score drops happen, I will not take another PT until the end of January (mostly because I spent the last 6 months everyday at this shit and need a break) but I fully anticipate my score to drop. Don't look at it as the end of the world but rather room for improvement to make your goal score even sweeter when it comes.

You've got this man, just enjoy the holidays for the most part and start heavy immediately afterwards.

Anyone know the official date yet for the test? I've seen June 12th, but it's not on LSAC's site yet.

Seems like only yesterday I was lurking on last year's thread. I'm not taking anymore LSATs, but I wanted to say good luck to all y'all.

i think that's why it didn't phase me, I love grouping games it is like my favorite part of the test. those damn new weird whatever the fuck they are games however, my skill is lolworthy.

goal for the next month, don't touch a single lsat question and start from, "scratch" in January

Yeah, compared to some of the weird shit from PT70 onwards, the older "weird" games aren't even that weird.

I think taking this month off is a great decision - nobody taking June '17 and later should be studying this month, unless they wanna burn all their materials out before next March

If you're not applying until next cycle then I don't see how taking in June and giving yourself more time can hurt :P
