Got into Duke today!

Just wanted to say thank you to 7Sage. My GPA is way below the 25th percentile of pretty much every T14 school (3.49), but because of 7Sage, my LSAT skyrocketed from a 160 (Feb. 2017) to a 171 (Sept. 2017), and I'm now 2/2 at law schools including an offer from Duke!

    Your story, like so many others on here, is the reason I haven't given up on my dream of going to a T-14 school. I have even narrowed it down to the exact school I want to attend. Congratulations for such an amazing success!

    I got the same score as yours on my June lsat and now hoping to score in the 170s to get into T-14 schools. Can you share what you did differently and how were you able to achieve such a great score?

    Congratulations! Duke is a great school. One of the most underrated in the T14, imo. The history of the school alone makes it worth attending. Good luck on the rest of your applications!

    It's cases like these that make me so angry at those who try to discourage retaking the LSAT (LSAC, some T-14 websites) with the misleading argument that most people don't improve much anyway.

    What's you (realistic) dream school?

    It might be Duke! I'd love to get into UVA as well. NYU/Columbia are stretches but I'm really happy with this.

    The 160 I took without really practicing or anything. My first real PT I got like a 164 or something. It came down to practicing and simulating the test day environment. I started getting 168s, then 170s, and got a 173 one time. But I started consistently getting 170 somehow. I did like 30 full length LSATs lol. It sucked but it was worth it.

    Thanks

    It came down to practicing LSATs in a test day environment. Every Saturday I'd wake up early, go to the library, turn my phone off, and take a full length test. With time, the questions started repeating themselves essentially and every LSAT became easier and more predictable. By the end, I was consistently getting -0 or -1 on LG and -3 or -4 on LR. The questions really do repeat themselves all the time.

    The key is to replicate the test day environment. By the time the test rolled around, it was as if I was just taking another PT like I did every week. PM me if you want to talk more about it, I'd love to help!
