Scoring 170 or more on the LSAT is a daunting task for many people. However, it is possible. Despite what many people believe, there is no trick or shortcut to getting a 170 or more on an LSAT score.
Very few people can walk into the room on test day with very little or no practice and be able to score that highly. It takes a lot of hard work to be able to score up to 170 or higher.
That being said, 3 main elements separate those who score that high and those who do not. If you are looking for that extra edge that will elevate your scoring capacity to the 170+ club, here are the things you’ll need to get there.
1. Work Ethic
There are very few people who can walk into tests and get a perfect score. The LSAT is a highly intensive exam that tests multiple facets of the legal practice. Even practice tests do not set the mood for the level of anxiety you may be facing that day.
That’s why you need to work hard, harder than you have ever worked on a single test to get a good score. That’s what separates those that have excelled and those that have fallen flat in our experience.
One of the best ways to channel a great work ethic is to find something that motivates you.
The bare minimum you should put in to prepare and soar above the rest is 2 and a half hours a day for at least two months. If you can push to three or four months for better preparedness, then the better your chances.
2. Work Until It Is Automatic
As mentioned before, the test day comes with a lot of anxiety and heightened nerves; so much so that you will not be able to think clearly. However, even in this condition, you need to be able to count on yourself to get the score that you really want.
One of the best ways to ensure this is to work until it is automatic. When you get the score that you want on a practice test say after one month of training, work for another month until the score becomes effortless to achieve.
3. Invest in Tutoring
The internet is full of information and tutorials on how to get higher LSAT scores by yourself. While it is possible, very rarely does it actually happen. Majority of people who set out to self-study for the LSATs do not get good scores.
The best way to guarantee a 170 or higher is to partner with a tutor. Tutors give you individual attention by adjusting to your specific method of learning. They are also flexible and will work with you when it is most convenient.
Tutoring is an excellent investment for your future. Additionally, it can be very affordable, especially if you choose to work with tutors from Moore Tutoring. They are all hires from Harvard Law that have scored at least 173 on their LSATs.
