I have been lurking on here since before the June test, and I wanted to share in case anyone is feeling down about their score...
I was DEVASTATED by my June score since it was SIGNIFICANTLY lower than my PT average... I couldn't even look at anything LSAT-related for an entire month
. However, I heeded the advice of people on here, learned from my weaknesses, studied my ass off for September, and got a full 12 POINTS HIGHER on my September score!
Not reaching my goal the first time meant that I didn't settle for my original goal - I was seriously motivated and ended up surpassing even my "crazy unrealistic goal score!"
So to anyone feeling down about their score - maybe it was meant to be - go CRUSH IT next time!
Congratulations! That’s a great increase.
Do you mind sharing some insight on how you increased 12 points between your first and second official tests? Your post really resonates with me and sounds nearly identical for me.
The September test was my first official LSAT. I was fairly confident going into it with PTs averaging at 162-165, but I felt really unlike myself on test day and almost dazed. Well, because of it, I scored a 157. I was expecting this based on how horribly it all went on test day, so now my focus is 100% on making sure it doesn’t happen again.
I am wondering what I can do between now and December 2 to recoup 12 or more points like you. For LR, it’s mostly buttoned up and I am only missing 5-7 total for both sections (but bombed on test day with -8 per section). For LG, I thought I was strong, but couldn’t get to fourth game and missed 3 because of it. RC is my weakest section by faaar. Any words of wisdom you may have? I am looking at 2-3 full PTs per week and lots of full section drills, but I am open to anything that may have worked for you or anyone else.
P.S. I posted a similar note on Barry grandpapy’s post, but just saw yours and wanted to reach out!
