I scored below my average two times in a row, and this time around I just told myself that I have the ability to kill every single section as long as I dont let the test own me. You know the material. If you could do it at home, you can do it in the testing center. the only difference is your mindset. the lsat is standardized--the test itself will be just as hard as the other tests youve taken. you took those practice tests and you will be taking the real thing--the variable here is not as much the test as it is your mental state. own your mental state.

There will be a rough section, a game you don't quite finish, something will go a little wrong, it's the LSAT. And you need to have a way to get yourself back in the game, and not spiral into panic. Eyes closed for 3 seconds, a predetermined pep talk, etc. I think freaking out is how things can go wrong.


+1 to each

OP, everything from here forward depends on confidence. Anxiety and self-doubt will KILL YOU on test day. No more full PTs for you.

I'll highlight this again. Count to 3, look out the window at the wide world beyond or something, and then get back to it.

You've studied too hard for too long to let the LSAT makers get the best of you.
