    Best Prep Texts for Self Study

    For self study, alot of people pair The LSAT Trainer with another book or online course. The Trainer is like having a personal tutor.

    75% GPA Lsat 155

    U of A's applicant profile last year's lowest GPA was 3.2/4 which is equivalent to 80% and the one person that got in had an LSAT of 167 to 169. Uvic's applicant profiles (two people) lowest GPAs were 3.2 to 3.29 on a 4.3 scale I believe with LSAT scores in the 95 to 99 percentile which is equivalent to an LSAT score of about 174 to 180. TRU hasn't released applicant profiles. Based on the applicant profiles from the two schools, increasing both GPA and LSAT seem to be your best bet.

    30 Points in Less than 2 Months?

    Awesome advice! I will use that strategy of skipping the last game, passage, and parallell questions on my next PT. I have a excellent GPA that would likely get me into my school of choice based on last year's applicant profile with a LSAT score of 155. Some were admitted with a lesser GPA. If I hit a 160 or more, that could result in a scholarship offer. I am not sure I trust my diagnostic and PT1 scores since I had next to no studying for PT1 and the diagnostic was just that, a diagnostic with zero studying and timed. Also, both were done online so I could not mark and skip questions like I could via a paper test. I think I'll have a far better gauge of where exactly I am on this next PT with studying/reviewing/ and learning new strategies. Thats an awesome improvement from 147 to 166. How long did it take you to reach that score (hrs of studying and time horizon)? What resources did you use? Thanks for the PM offer, I might take you up on that.

    Solid advice, thanks Leafer!

    Thats a good plan, make money to pay for first year tuition. I am an older student who just graduated. It wouldn't be the best for me to wait another year to get in. However, I am open to taking the March exam if I decide to cancel my score for this January one. I am pretty sure I will keep the score if I am PTing around 155. It'd be ideal to PT around 160 to 165, but that doesn't seem likely. I will have a better idea of where I am by the end of this week based on what the PT says after having time to really study for it. But yeah, I already registered and applied to my school of choice. So it'd be a waste to postpone at this point.

    Thanks for the input. Are there any positives to postponing? I would be losing my application fee for the test and the school. Also, I get the experience of doing the test. If I am not performing at 155 PTs or greater that week, I would take the test and likely cancel the score. I have heard of significant improvements happening in a one month time frame. It seems like this depends on how much someone wants it and I'm hoping to be one of those few that can do it!

    Thanks for the honest reply and feedback! Appreciate it. I think if I'm not PTing around 155 or greater, I would likely cancel the score. Unfortunately, I already applied to a school and the reason I am taking the test January 2020 is because I want to get in September 2020. The school that I would like to go to does take an average, hence the willingness to cancel. Good call on the real life simulation and ditching online PTs. Hoping 8 to 10 hours a day of studying/PTs/ and drills will get me to my goal. I find all of the stuff I have been learning is very useful and interesting. Wish I would have attempted the LSAT long ago since alot of these skills would have helped with University testing/learning. Nonetheless, I think these skills are valuable going forward whether I get into law school or not! Btw, I have a good chance of getting in if I hit 156 or more based on my GPA and last year's applicant profile. Fingers crossed.

    Correct assumption. I want to go with good study materials to build a correct and stable foundation. After reading reviews on study materials and getting my feet wet with the LSAT trainer. I'll be doing LSAT trainer and 7Sage. How did you use the trainer as supplemental to 7Sage? Which sections and how did you study? I am currently reading it and love the way Mike Kim's breaking stuff down. But not sure how to supplement with 7Sage.

    I like the guy teaching in the video! Seems legit Thanks for that Ricky.

    Sound advice, thanks! How do the sections for logic games work on 7 Sage? I just bought prep tests 72 to 81 to accompany Mike Kim's Trainer and 1 month study schedule and will be basing alot of my study off the Trainer.

    Motivated to do so. Hope it works out

    PT1 Results: Arguments 1 = 68% correct, Arguments 2 = 44% correct, Reading Comprehension = 28% correct, Logic Games = 38% correct I will admit my studying was not really efficient as the majority was going through the modules at a very fast paced. My intention is to complete the mcgraw course fast and switch to 7sage. But I think I am going to 7 sage immediately with The LSAT Trainer and possibly Logic Reasoning with Manhatten

    Sounds good. 7 Sage is a lock. Did you supplement anything with 7 Sage? I'll check out Amazon for recent tests, thanks!

    Thanks for the reply, 905. Definitely going to get 7sage. You think I should ditch mcgraw hill right now and just go over to 7sage immediately? Where can I get the most recent tests from 74 to 82?

    Thanks for the feedback, Tony. I was thinking of focusing on logic games and logical reasoning. I don't think my RC will get significantly better within 6 weeks time, although the annotation strategies did seem to help me better understand the passages (during drilling). RC seems to be a timing issue for me; it takes me awhile to read fast for comprehension. For resources, yes, I agree less is probably more. Thinking of using the current books for their PTs and perhaps some sections on strategies. But dedicating most time to The LSAT Trainer, Manhattan for Logical Reasoning, and 7Sage. Thoughts? Edit: On the topic of burnout. I completed all my courses to graduate during this fall semester. I will have the next 6 weeks to study full time on the LSAT. This means no work, school, or other obligations. My plan is 4 hours in the morning and 4 hours in the evening dedicated to the LSAT.
