I will have a better idea whether I'm doing June (or maybe July?) in April.

This upcoming cycle will be odd with all the new LSAT dates and more GRE applicants.

Yeah -- I'm actually thinking about possibly shooting for July/Sept depending on where I'm at in April. I figure by then if I'm not squarely in the 170s, delaying might be best. My prep has been so inconsistent that I feel like it's hard for me to commit to one date until I know for sure I'm already at where I need to be.

The new dates are really great though. I like that if I need I can take again in Sept and Nov and still apply relatively early.

I figure since I'm taking another year to apply, it's time to shoot for that 170, so I am checking in.

Not planning on it. But, if I'm forced to delay a cycle, I might. Fingers crossed I don't fuck it up in February...

Since there isn't a Feb Study Group thread and there's no point making one 2 weeks out, I'm going to post in here until test day.

I am not happy with being wide wake for almost two hours today... I could have had an extra hour of sleep for test day simulation...

Trying to decide if I retake PT 79 after 7 months or PT 65 which I've never touched...

Ugh...printed the PDF of my PT last night and now that I'm done with my S1 exp, realized the alignment is off on the actual test regarding how the pages align on real test day. IE RC passage is one side and the second page of questions for it is on the back side versus spread across two pages side by side. Same for games. Wasting paper sucks, but at least it can be recycle. I'm more pissed about the time I have to take to reprint which reduces test day simulation between these two sections...

PT 79

LR: -3
RC: -3
LG: -0

Score: 175

BR
LR: -1
RC: -1
LG: -0

BR Score: 180

I knew that 177 last week was a fluke.

Experiment626, I'm pretty sure PT scores are best thought of as a range. As far as I know, your 175 and 177 in two weeks indicates your range is currently 175-177, neither a 175 nor a 177 on the nose.

I just did PT 3's LG section and WOW the fourth game was infuriating. It requires an unwarranted assumption. I wasn't comfortable making the unwarranted assumption until I glanced through all 5 questions and saw they were all unsolvable otherwise, costing me probably 4-5 minutes.

There are no flukes. We all have a +/-X in us. I scored 8 points below my average on the last PT I ever took and scored 2 points above my average on test day.

Apologies for hijacking the thread but genuinely curious about the authenticity of "TLS got bought" story. Anyone have any proof?
