I took the LSAT for the first time in April and received a 166. Although I was proud of my score, I believed that I was capable of getting a 170+. So I continued to prep using 7Sage as my only LSAT resource. Today, I am thrilled to report that I made 174 on the August LSAT!!! Now I've got to get started on my applications for Fall 2022. Keep grinding everyone!

    I would do blind review on every single question, not just one's that you are uncertain about. My usual process was take a PT on Saturday, blind review the entire PT on Sunday (this would take several hours), then do a deep review on any of the questions I missed for the rest of the week until it was time to take a fresh PT again. Doing a thorough blind review really helped me recognize reoccurring patterns in the LSAT (such as trap answer choices).

    This is copied straight from LSAC regarding the score band:

    LSAT scores are estimates of a test taker’s actual proficiency in the skills tested.

    LSAT scores are reported to law schools along with a score band because the estimate of proficiency provided by a given LSAT score is not perfectly accurate. A test taker’s actual proficiency in the skills tested on the LSAT may be slightly higher or slightly lower than that reflected by the score received on an officially administered LSAT.

    The score band indicates a range of scores, including scores slightly higher and slightly lower than the score received. The test taker's actual proficiency in the skills measured is likely to fall within this range. As an example, a score of 157 would be reported along with a score band of 154 to 160.

    In other words, even though an individual score received on an officially administered LSAT is an estimate of a test taker’s actual proficiency in the skills tested, it is unlikely that the test taker’s actual proficiency in the skills tested is more than a few points higher or lower than the score received.
