I'm kind of in the same place as you. I can't seem to remember all the RC passages I had, or all the rules for the games. And this is unusual for me. I'm pretty good with memory. After my SATs I sat down and wrote all the questions and answers to the test and guessed my score to within 50pts.

But here now, I can't recall much about it. Other than something with races and cars and nurses. But it's not very vivid. Anyways, it sounds like you had a legitmate blackout. Unless of course your ego is trying to get you to forget in order to protect it from harm.

LSAT<BLACKOUT. I think you miswrote the rule.

I cancelled my score right after taking the test because I was totally zoned out throughout the test.

I'm reading people's reactions/comments, and I have a really hard time recalling whatever people are talking about.

I guess this really attests to the kind of mental state I was in.

Is anyone else experiencing similar "blackout"?


I vaguely remember certain questions, but I forgot which questions were in each section. I had to RC and didnt remember which passages went with which, and have NO idea which LR questions were in which. One of the games I barely remember doing. Everything is a haze...

All of you guys,

did you guys get a good night's sleep?

I took two tylenols just to be sure -- was a complete fking disaster. I went to bed at 11 and woke up at 5:30, all anxious and sweating.

Couldn't go back go sleep -- so stressed out and overate breakfast (twice the usual amount I eat).

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I can't even remember what the four RC passages were about.

It's funny that you mention being blacked-out during the test because they say that's what happens to women during birth or soldiers during combat...they don't remember the pain and anguish, and that's how they're able to put themselves in those situations again.

I was fine during the test, but now I have no clue what it was about. I can remember the topic of one RC passage, and another only because somebody mentioned it on here. The games are a total blank, and the only thing I remember about LR was that I didn't get to bubble in one of the answer choices.

I closed my eyes for one second, woke up, and the proctor was collecting my test booklet and answer sheet that had random bubbles filled in....

Yeah I can sort of remember writing things down in a booklet and checking out the hot french chick in front of me after the writing sample, but not much else.

Oh and I remember that the 2nd LR kicked my ass thoroughly. On question 15 I checked my watch and 20 mins had already passed.

Black out is a common symptom of high amounts of adrenaline.
Pro athletes experience this frequently.

I thought it was easy, but I also don't think I did particularly well either.

Me. I remember few specifics. Just the structure (RC LR LR LG LR), and the general "feel" of each section.

That is exactly how I felt. I was extremely jacked going into the test but was very focused through out. I think i did good for me (160+) but its just all a blur now...

<-------------------------- BURNOUT

I thought I was the only one. When I got out of my seat, I literally felt like I was in a catatonic state- my sense of balance was way off and it felt weird walking. After I left the testing center, I could only remember like 15 specific questions, a few passages and 2 of the games. When I got home, I took an hour power nap and dreamt about the LSAT. And after reading posts here about specific questions, I kept saying "oh yeah, I remember that one now."

It was fucking weird to say the least.

That's what killed me. I couldn't do the ten in ten on the LR and I was seriously short on time. They also had a method of reasoning question which was written in a way I had never seen it before.

It's not necessarily a bad thing. One of the elements that can lead to a good score is the ability to move on. So if you don't remember much of the test, it can be scary, but it may mena you did what you needed to do, and you moved on from one Q to the next, and didn't let anything phase you.

The test was also a complete haze to me, but then again I drank a ton of gin after and so everything's hazy to me in general now.
