To be honest, I was fearing the worst for this test. I made some bad, stupid tactical errors and really had to grind it out. Sightly disappointed in that, but happy with my recovery. It goes to show that the work you guys are putting in over the months can save you from disaster on test day. Wish I had at least hit my average but relieved to have a viable score to apply with. Quick stats below but more to come...

Thanks to @"Cant Get Right" who taught me the value of deep review, @Mike_Ross who helped me develop those mechanical question type strategies early on, and the man @"J.Y. Ping" whose voice even my kid recognizes now. Also all the great people here I've been able to work with... too many to mention, and I'd probably forget someone so you know who you are. You all were essential in getting here.

    Apps in! Thanks all. Looking forward to continuing to contribute here. I still have this urge to keep going and try for a better score, but my 7sage consultant just told me no... and I think my wife might kill me. I'll just set that on the back burner and take a breather for now.

    Congrats!! A job well done (and your kid too he's probably heard plenty of JY's videos hahah). I don't think you know how much you've contributed so far to my own short LSAT ride with all your forum posts and recent tutoring, so thank you, and best of luck with the rest of your application and law school journey.

    Congrats man, I know you put the work in and it is a great score. I feel you about the score too. I hit three points below my average, which was the same as yours this time, going into the October test. Only improved one point this time, but I am happy to have at least hit in my consistent performance range this time instead of outside it. Hope you have plenty of options to choose from in a month or two, I know you will have earned it.

    This is great -- congratulations! As an aside, I was hoping to message you personally if that's okay, just have a couple of questions about the exam!

  • canihazJDcanihazJD Alum Member Sage

    @LSATIndia sure!

    @VerdantZephyr so frustrating, but that's how it goes. I'll likely ride it out... at least thats how I feel today.

    Finding any excuse to review anything that gave you trouble on the PT. Getting as deep as possible into what's going on in that question. Beyond just structure, flaws, assumptions, etc. What tricks did the test writer employ? What affected your understanding of the question? How was your timing? Stuff like that.
