its amazing that over 5 months i was able to memorize games/patterns, inferences in LR's, and answers to qeustions in over 50+ tests. I think that by itself is merit of some kind of medal/award/trophy .... something... gift card to radio shack at least.
Definitely deserves a gift card to radio shack.

Grrr....2 more nights before I can get this thing over with. All revved up and rarin' to go! Drilling LG this morning, after which I will be saying goodbye to LSAT prep forever.

Weird thing... I typically don't sleep before midnight, but the past week or so, I've been forcing myself to be in bed my 9:30 pm at the latest just to make sure I stay fresh. Well, I've been able to sleep before 11, but have been waking up at 4:30-5 am. LOL! I guess I am not meant to get the full 8 hours.

Go shopping/spend money I don't have. Translate Latin, do reading, study for test. Maybe if I keep myself really busy with schoolwork when I get my dreadful score my GPA will be so high it'll be okay... sort of...

I feel like Hermione after her Ancient Runes OWL.

Well really, we cant say things like answer patterns on the boards, because otherwise we'll get banned. It's not allowed.

im not sure about patterns, but one guy asked me after the test about what I thought of the RC section. I told him i had 2, and while it was a lot of reading ( back to back) the passages seemed easy, but the questions took longer than I expected. He replied " Oh, well I hope it was the experimental on mine as well, since I put E for every question."
I wanted to ask what other sections he had, but I decided to let him cling on to that one bit of hope

Yeah I didn't guess. Just noticed a lot of repitition made me worry. I had not more than two in a row but this happened about 3 times. But I am probably just over analyzing. I usaully do really well on RC and did good on the rest of the test and this was the only section that I am uncertian on. I felt very rushed.

Please let me know if this is to much info. I dont see how anyone could get anything out this regarding the test answers.

Stressful I hope I didnt blow it.

you did fine.. have confidence in your abilities

i do have aquestion. If you misbubbled a section, do you have to contact LSAC before 6 days after the test, or wait until you get your scores. Im starting to become paranoid that I misbubbled the games section, even though i feel as though I did well on it. Should I contact them and tell them, or wait and see how i do?

i think its just paranoia

Wait there is nothing you can do. I think you have like 45 days after the test results come out to have it handscored. Look it up at LSAC.org to confirm deadline.

There's nothing you can do about misbubbling. Once your score comes out you can have your score sheet handscored, but this doesn't correct for misbubbling.

to ease my nerves I called LSAC. I have 60 days to ask for a re score. The lady told me that if I think i misbubbled a section, if I know where the misbubbling occurred, i could have them check it out. THe section im worried about is the games section, and i told her that i diid the games out of order. She said it was fine, but I would have to explain it in wiriting, and indicate how and where the misbubbling occurred.

with that said, at least I know theres a slim fighting chance if indeed I did misbubble the game section... nerves eased and restored to pre lsat prep days
