The STUPIDEST thing I did with this LSAT was...

Postby 58932ugahoige » Tue Oct 12, 2010 3:45 am

...come to this fricking website after I wrote it. I was feeling super hot--thinking I scored ~175--only to find out that I got the cardiologist question wrong because I can't read good.

Why did I open the Pandora's Box? WHY!?

Who else is feeling far less certain than they did right after they wrote it!? My advice to new test-takers will be to not even look at "Test Reaction" threads. I slept like a baby the night before my LSAT; now I am stressed.

Yeah, same here. I walked out of the test room feeling like I had owned the LR sections, that they were pretty easy...and now with the way everyone is talking about LR, I'm all but certain that I got cocky and therefore misread and therefore fell for all the traps that LSAC lays out for test-takers like me.

OP assumes without justification that those new test takers who do look at Test Reaction threads will in fact feel stressed.

LOLZ @ above post

I had a paper prompt that said A papers (in part) "anticipate shortcomings in arguments"

I was sure to use " xxxx presumes, without justification..."

and of course soon after, "it follows that..."


The stupidest thing I did on the LSAT? I didn't follow my own rules that I preach for logic games. And I'm not even sure if I read some of the RC passages

You can score one wrong and still get a 180 :mrgreen:

I felt great coming out of LR..only to find out that I completely missed the question about steel and electricity, and that flaw question about corporate income tax. Those may have been the two easiest questions on the test. Yet, I was able to get the brick house, rule of law, and the analogy question correct.

I am such a douche!!!!

From the LR debacle the last few days, I'm pretty confident I got almost all of the hard ones right including brick houses, owls, EKGs, antibiotic, shakespeare( there is still no consensus on this however but I feel LSAT wise my answer was the best fit). Now the easy LRs thats another question lol.

But in all seriousness, the STUPIDEST thing I did, even stupider than coming on the forums was misinterpreting a rule in a LG. The LG was so easy and I didn't get to take full advantage of it. I hope it doesn't sink me.

Tell me about it. I know I agonized over three and I don't think a single one of them has been mentioned as 'difficult' so far

I feel you OP.. even though I've confirmed a lot of my answers as correct with people on here, the fact that I keep coming on TLS is just making me continue to think about the LSAT constantly, and really there is no point of doing that right now.

Definitely this. Im getting some reassurance, but obsessing over the test is not going to make these 17 days go by any faster. And there are still questions that I suspect I got wrong and hearing the plethora of answers and explanations is only making me feel worse about them. Ugh, the 29th cannot get here fast enough!

lol about EKG questions. . .seriusly, I changed that one three times, to three different answers. . . still not sure if I finally understood it right. It was the last section and I was fried.

Assumption required: If brochocinco talks, it must be about the LR questions.

My dumbest thing--I suspect the adrenalin rush/panic made me toss all my methods and techniques out the window and rely on raw intelligence alone. Makes me think I'll end up with a score closer to my diagnostic (160) than my PT average (168). Blarg.

Enough prepping will move your test-taking strategies from the 'carefully-learned' part of your brain to the 'raw intelligence' part of your brain, though.

Don't give up hope on 170 =P

*raises hand*

I basically didn't sleep the night before. They let us into the room at about 8, so I dozed until test time, then dozed after I finished every section.

I felt I did really well, but maybe I was just dreaming it!

Or you can get all the other ones wrong as well and get a 120 :shock:

I don't think the perceived difficulty of the current takers really reflects anything about the curve. I am pretty sure they establish it based on the difficulty of questions, and that difficulty is assessed by the performance of previous takers as they do their experimental.

Then again I could be wrong since who knows what their system really is. Thats just what I read on lsatblog
