RANT

Postby schand » Wed Jun 02, 2010 2:48 pm

So I usually get between 2-5 wrong on logical reasoning/section. But today I went 9 wrong on one section!! Seriously I can't stop thinking about it because I'm taking the lsat on Monday and I have studied soooo much for this exam. It's totally ruining my confidence. Argh!!!

That's where I was. It happened once and I'm not stalled out at a 162, missing 7-9 each LR section. Pissing me off. I've been told positive thinking and not dwelling on it should help. I'm going to try that and look over my rules some more to see trends in my mishaps. I just wanted you to know I feel your pain and good luck killing the LR beast.

We've all been there. You had an off day. Don't beat yourself up about it. Just be glad that you didn't get that section on test day.

It might help to get yourself in a competitive mindset by desiring revenge against the LSAT.

We get June results on my birtday, so I don't want to hear about a PT. If i dont get at least a 170, I'm going to be super pissed. Especially because it will be my birhday.

Thanks guys! Yeah I need to think positively. I am praying it doesn't happen on test day.

Jaminben - Happy Birthday! I'm sure you're not going to remember next Monday night.

It's probably just bad luck. The test is designed to get you close to your "true score" most of the time. Occasionally it doesn't work out, either because you were especially tired or distracted or had especially bad luck when you guessed or you missed a few more words than usual. Don't worry about single outliers.

I just went through the same thing on a LG section. Just out of my mind. I have to regroup, review, and maybe relax a little.

When is the official results day? Also, I've heard result go online (by email?) before the official scheduled day.

Thanks for the data - looks like we'll probably get them around the 25th. Also, I used your 5-month study schedule more or less, thanks for making that available!

Interesting stuff, I hadn't actually thought that it would be released ahead of time. I hope it goes well and we get the score that Friday... that will be a night to never remember
