Additional info & updates

Took the October LSAT and didn't do too well :( but the good thing is my score wasn't much of a surprise. Going into the test I was scoring between 156-160 on my practice tests and was hoping that on the day of the test I would have a miraculous score improvement..that did't happen, lol.

After speaking with my pre-law advisor he told me that anything above a 165 would give me a good shot at the schools that I'm applying to. So, I decided to hold off on my applications and try to improve my score for the December test so I would be a more competitive applicant. On my practice tests leading up to the exam, I was scoring between 167-171 so hopefully my actual scores will be somewhere in the range.

1/6: got a 160 on my Dec. LSAT, not as high as I was shooting for but still an improvement nonetheless
