I am taking the LSAT overseas on 10 October and currently have exactly 8 weeks before my test. I'd be grateful for your advice on figuring out the best strategy for maximizing my score by the test date.
I started studying with the Bibles in April and for the 1.5 month focused solely on LR. On 30 May, I began your 4-month plan to combine all sections. My diagnostic test score in early April was 144. Last week, I began to do untimed full tests and have now completed 4 full tests (3 untimed to see where my conceptual weaknesses are, and one timed test to establish my new timed score). The latter, timed score is currently 152, while my untimed scores are about 161-162. My goal is to get 170+ by October; the higher, the better. I've identified my weaknesses, and aside from specific question types, a major issue is learning to seamlessly apply your methods to different question types.
The question is: at this point, what can I do to maximize my chances of scoring 170+ by October? Aside from focusing on seamlessly applying different question strategies, reviewing problems, and targeting my weak areas. I am good at motivating myself but can't help but feel that I may not do enough, or do something not quite right in the next few weeks, which will ultimately make my score goal impossible. Is this where I should hire a tutor? Quit my job? Just kidding about the last one, of course.
I can continue to dedicate at least 25 hours per week on top of my mentally taxing job. I also plan to take the week before the test off, so I can focus just on the test. I also listen to your podcasts -- they're truly great and uplifting.
