Hey everyone this probably one of the most repetitive questions you all might see on the forum, but I am hoping someone will advise me. I plan on applying this round to a couple of Canadian law schools in order to start in the Fall of 2020. I haven't written the LSAT yet and it will be my first time but I have to choose between the November and January exams (January is the last acceptable exam). I am hoping to take it once (which might be a long shot I know) as my top 2 schools take the average of more than one score if written more than once.
So, I have been using 7sage and Kaplan. I ran through the curriculum probably in February (a year before I had run through it once but never really PTd) before starting the curriculum my cold diagnostic was135 and I started to just practice some problem sets and RC passages and had to take a break for about a month due to finishing up my courses, I did take a practice test (I do not remember the number) but I got 143. I do try my best to BR and when I take passages and pt's I do time myself. Anyways when I got back to studying early July, I took the February 1997 and got 138 (but I was sort of ill) and I took Prep Test 1/35 and scored about the same. My goal and what I need is between a 160-165 and my overall GPA is a 3.4.
I usually do really bad on LR (7/25 on each LR), and I find all the inference questions difficult
RC (9/28) which is surprising because when I was practicing RC passages I would get 4/6 or 3/7 (per passage)
LG is my strongest section (20/24).
In August, I re-visited the curriculum, really trying to drill and understand everything and I am almost done (I just need to re-study MSS, Causation and Some/Most). Today I practiced an LR section and got 12/25, its still low but its pretty big improvement.
My question is I have week to register for the November exam and I am not sure if I should, you could basically say that I just started PTing again and January is my last shot, which test do you advise that I should take? I know it depends on how much I study now and can improve as everyone improves differently but I am really confused on what to do. Also right now, I am not in school (just graduated with my degree) and still looking for a full-time job which I may secured. So if I take the January exam I could be working full-time before it.
