After hitting 180 on PT60 this morning, my confidence is at an all-time high! I voted 180!

But this thread is not complete without northwood to tell us that we're all going to do great. Where is northwood?

Is that a parody of an older form of parody of a dance?

HEY HEY... sorry im late to the party


I cant vote for either score.. because im going to get a 182 ( bonus points for being the first person to make the lsat test booklet shed actual tears-)


the games will be easy.. RC will be a blast from the past( and kinda interesting too), and LR will be.a breeze. The curve will be generous, and all of the testing centers will be at the perfect temperature, humidity..... and yes.. the proctors will all be normal, and kindly announce when 10 minutes remain, 5 minutes remain.

biggidy biggidy, its soon to be lsat domination celebration time ( first rounds on adjundicator-- ill take a whisky with a dash of ginger thanks)

If it makes you feel any better, test center conditions (except for the rare extreme cases) are overplayed. Having plenty of space and a quiet room are ideal, but a small desk and some ruffling of papers is not gonna make or break your score. The proctors only announce 5 minutes. And if the last few test are any indication, you should have a pretty forgiving curve.

Please raise your hand if you immediately justified Adjudicator's conclusion by supplying:
1. If Northwood posts in the thread, then it will be complete.
2. If the thread is complete, it will be legit.

Bonus points if you actually diagrammed those sentences as NWP --> TC --> TL and made the inference of NWP --> TL.

Sleep time now.

I thought it was difficult for a group to check out the options critically unless there was a high degree of cohesiveness? Then again, on a balance, yes, on a balance, groupthink can't be expected to have beneficial effects.

im not worried at all about the curve, conditions, or whatever. At this point im happy where im at with prep, and have been maintaining a good rhythm and vibe throughout the whole thing. I have a good ability to tune out distractors and just focus on whatever task is at hand. After all its just a simple test, given on an ordinary day. the worst that can happen is I dont get the score I like and re take in December? Not that big of a deal if you really think about it.

if you studied well and efficiently, and have faith in your abilities, you will be fine. dont let the bad news drew/ negative nancy sitting next to you ruin your test day experience.
