I am a snacker. I guess I'll just have to eat a protein bar or something at home, then a banana en route, then another protein bar before I check in or something lol.


Hmm, I think it depends. I got there at like 12:15, and had to wait in a fat check in line (they finger print you and check your plastic ziplock back), so I didn't get in until 1:30 at least. I definitely ate while in line. But once in the classroom, I didn't eat, and I was there for probably another hour. So i'm not sure if you can snack in the classroom. I ate more snacks at the break though.


Hmm. I'm planning on getting there early. However, I'm at a Canadian test center, so there's no finger printing involved. I'm guessing they check the contents of your bag still, and cross check your ID/your photo on the ticket/you, here.

Eh, it's at my undergrad, so I feel comfortable snacking in line/maybe even in the room if there's nothing else going on... we'll see, haha. I actually took my Contribution of Greek and Latin to the English Language exam in the same room (or one in the same building that looks exactly the same, lol) so it's all good.

I need to do more PTs but I'm a failure at life and can't get going. I feel like I'me xperiencing laziness or burnout. Or both. PT tomorrow for sure, though.

Just did 51. Missed 2 for another 180. Starting to think I have somehow managed to remember these tests from over 2 years ago... Think I will take one of the most recent ones next. Anyone want to do 57 soon?

I seriously doubt you remember these tests from two years ago. Your previous exposure to the games might give you a slight advantage but otherwise I would say the scores are probably an accurate portrayal. I'm retaking tests from 6 months ago and I don't feel like I really remember the questions.

I feel the same way! I tried taking a PT today but I couldn't concentrate and get in the LSAT mindset so I did terribly. I don't know what to do to get myself out of this funk...

thats reassuring, since I bombed the games in pretty much every test I took last time around I don't think thats likely the case. Seems I made the jump, something recently just clicked (ironically enough when I really started slacking on my prep). Now if only I can keep this streak going for another month....
:shock:

I am going to get up on time and do a PT tomorrow morning after walking my dog and hopefully will have a more productive day tomorrow. Although today I made REAL mac n cheese and did some LR questions while it was cooking, lmao - soooo productive. I kind of know why I'm so freaking unmotivated, and hopefully the cause of that will end on Tuesday (and perhaps the effect will end once the cause is gone). Is anyone else incredibly wary about talking about cause and effect on here? I feel like I have to write I KNOW THAT MY LACK OF MOTIVATION MAY NOT ONLY HAVE ONE CAUSE! Or someone is going to jump on my argument, lol.

Anyways, if the supposed cause is removed and the effect stops, that'll strengthen my argument for that supposed cause actually being the cause.

I don't know if half of that made sense, I need to go to bed early today.

So what is the supposed cause?? Have you been working hard on LSAT stuff for a while now?? I've been doing that and haven't really taken a break so I might do that... But that kinda scares me to take a break lol

Lol, no, I've been working pretty consistently but with enough tiny breaks/days off that I don't think it's just too much studying. Just some "personal" things going on in my life. Obviously not an excuse to not study (and I am taking PTs still as schedule), but making it harder to study as much.

Oh sorry to hear that... Well let's just try to push through it I guess!

Took PT 45 today. Going to do 2-3 a week until the test, hopefully I can take all of them up until 60.

What test is everyone else on?

Hi Knock. My next test will be #53. I'm trying to pace myself so that I don't reach 60 too soon.

PT 51

-3 lr1
-3 rc
-4 lr2
-0 lg
-1 lr from 44

score of 171?

PT 51 was exceptionally easy, this should have been a 180 but I am getting very very lax.

Today I used the last section from 49 that I didn't get to on Friday as my "experimental" for PT 51. So I have two scores for today to report.

PT 49 - 92 raw, 172 scaled. -1LG (good), -4LR (terrible), -2RC (alright), -1LR (much better!).

PT 51 - 94 raw, 176 scaled. -1LR (good!), -4RC (what's happening here?!), -1LR (good!), -0LG (good, but I had seen one of the games before.)

I don't know what it is about these games, but I'm literally flying through them and feeling very good about my answers. I'm going to make sure to do some of the older weirder games alongside these PTs as apparently there are some weird ones in PT 60 and that weird dino game I'm anticipating.

I'm a little concerned about my RC performance dropping a bit - need to FOCUS more and read more carefully. I was really focusing on not dropping the ball in LR here, so I need to extend that focus to RC and not get complacent.

Gonna be moving into 50 next week but took PT 40 and found the RC to be pretty tough... Usually in pretty good about it but this time it got me... Anyone else look at RC on 40 and have trouble??

PT 46 on Thursday.
PT-review 2-day cycle is not that bad. I don't feel myself burning out, but I am pretty adamant about not thinking about LSAT until I have to prep/take a test. Or at least, not actively thinking about it.

I'm thinking about getting regular exercise, anyone with me?

Regular exercise is a good idea. I'm planning on walking my puppy every day except Tuesdays (a lonnnng day filled with classes + family lol), as well as doing lengths swimming every Monday and Friday. Not a huge amount of exercise, I know, but usually I just walk my dog, lol. I'm lazy.

Took PT 50 on Sunday and just finished taking PT 51 tonight. Mixed results.

PT 50:

LR combined -0
LG -0
RC -8! (-6 on the riddled basins passage alone)

92/172 (First sub-174 score since I started taking PT's)

Easily my worst RC performance ever... but in all fairness, I stayed up until 5 am the night before and took the PT at around 9:30 am.

PT 51:

LR1 -1 (Chose D instead of C for no. 8 )
RC -2 (No. 11 on the LHB passage, chose E instead of C; No. 20 of the international communications passage, chose D instead of A)
LR2 -1 (No. 14, chose B instead of C; this was a giveaway, can't believe I missed it)
LG -0

96/178

Down to the last 9 PT's (52-60)! At this point, I just want the actual test to be over and done with.
