Depends what kind of sick but get plenty of rest.
If it's cold/flu then OJ, organic throat coat tea (whole foods), vitamins, rest, healthy foods, - try and get a zpack from your doc just in case (azithromycin)

If you are honest to goodness sick during the LSAT, it can affect your performace and you might have to cancel.

On the other hand, you could get over it by Thursday and be a-ok for Saturday.

Drink Fluids like no tomorrow.

Rest your body as much as you can. If you do not, you can prolong the sickness.

Stay away from exercise. Even though it can boost the immune system, it's actually detrimental to getting over it as fast as possible.

Mind over matter. The more you freak about getting sick, the more you will get sick.

good luck!

Buy those Emergen-C packets to put in your water. I have no idea if they actually have any sort of effect on your cold (besides the obviously positive benefit of getting enough vitamin C). However, the taste was really gross to me at the beginning of my cold, then I got sick enough that I couldn't taste it and it just tasted weird, and then it started tasting gross again as I got better, haha. It was a nice barometer. Also, if you have a cold, and your mouth tastes yucky, it can be helpful to have some sort of flavor to help you drink more fluids.

Saturday's a week away. Most colds last about a week. If it's a cold, you'll at least be feeling better by then if you take care of yourself.

If you can pick yourself out of bed and stumble to the test center, you should take the test. If you think you did bad you can always cancel. If you can't pick yourself up out of bed, well, hello December.

Take your temp tomorrow. If there's no fever then I'm betting it's just allergies. People tend to feel sicky when the weather starts changing.

Work out and force this out of your system. Work out hard. Your body will produce endorphins and antibodies. Also, its a good stress releaser.

Just take it easy. Youll be fine.

Good luck!

I'm sick too! I'm not sure what's worse, actually being sick or being stressed out about being sick on the big day.

Also:
Try to remember to take a lot of vitamin C, but under no circumstance should you take a lot of vitamin C.

bjc, just try and relax and focus on a calm blue ocean to let your brain de-stress; it doesn't help to think about how you being sick will screw with your test. But if you know what's good for you, keep your mind sharp by constant thought, and re-evaluating how your sickness will damper your test day.

You guys have a week. If anything you are lucky you are getting sick now and not 3 or 4 days from now when you would really be screwed. you will recover in time.
