My girlfriend and I (of 4 years) broke up about three weeks before the LSAT. This girl was the one... or so I thought. I had started saving money for the ring, she was gonna come with me to law school, etc. Our breakup was pretty tough, and it was even tougher because she started seeing some guy just a few weeks later (obviously our four years together meant a lot to her
The bottom line is this: girls are gonna come and go. This LSAT score is going to determine your law school, and that is something that will affect you forever
. I know it is very hard to study for the LSAT when your whole personal life is in limbo, but try viewing the LSAT and law school in general as an "escape" from these hard times in your life. Quite honestly, moving down to St. Louis and starting law school represents a "fresh start" for me, and I get to put all the heartache and memories aside and move on with my life. If you look at law school the same way, perhaps it will serve as some motivation.
