Thanks 7Sage! 150 diag --> 177 Nov flex!

I am honestly shocked. I took the June LSAT and scored a 165 so I had minimal hopes for Nov but !!!
With a 3.3 GPA, I was only shooting for like Fordham and was gonna BS my essays but now I don't even know where to apply.
JY and this community really came down and saved my soul from student debt. god bless
sorry this is braggy but I feel like all the previous high 170 scorer posts I've seen had diagnostics in the 160s which can be really discouraging, so even if you have a low diagnostic, it's possible ppl!

    How was the LSAT flex? Is it a lot easier than the full length LSAT?

    @whatlikeitshard thanks! and I originally did TestMasters for like core curriculum stuff which got me up to low 160s. Then I just drilled 7sage questions. For LR and LG, I would pick a PT grouping given by 7sage so like PT's 1-35 or 36-59 or 59+. Then within PT 1-35, I would just drill questions by type and difficulty so like doing all the Flaw Questions - Easy, then Medium, etc. I feel like drilling questions by type gives you a better sense of how to attack each type/move quicker. Once I finished all the LR and LG questions for PT 1-35, I moved onto 36-59 and again with 59+. I did that for June.
    Then, for November I spent a month restudying where I would just drill all the hard and hardest questions and take practice tests.
    I didn't study a ton for RC but what I found helpful was drilling the must be true and most strongly supported LR questions. I feel like those question types help you to differentiate between the answer choices for RC since it often seems like they're all plausible.

    @mitchell-5 I've only ever done practice non-flex lsats but from my experience it seems like the FLEX is a bit nicer since it has less sections so it's less draining. Also, the FLEX sometimes repeats old LSAT questions, mainly from like the European and international LSAT's from what I can tell so at least no questions are like radically new for the Flex.
