Support thread for those whose Earth has just been shattered

Postby JurisDoctorate » Fri Oct 29, 2010 10:10 pm

I thought there was no way I'd get lower than a 160 and I was wrong, dead-wrong. I couldn't open my eyes for a few minutes and I was devastated. I thought about going to a low-ranked school in NY or waiting until next year to apply.

If anyone else is in an immense amount of pain, feel free to share.

I'm here. Although, I was only one point below my prediction and about 1.5 points below my pt average. But I felt so good after the test so I am still dissappointed.

I'm seriously starting to think the curve on this was like a -4 or something. Don't worry though.. you can always retake. Don't let yourself get down.

I scored lower than my cold diagnostic, despite taking a PS class, seeing a tutor and doing hours and hours of prep.

The emesis I had, that morning, and my cough during the test must have been far more of a challenge than I thought.

I don't even know what to say.

I'm happy for your good score, Patriot, but I am sorry you're disappointed.

t14, that's the funny thing; I was the one who kept talking about a huge curve. All I can say is, I have 6 weeks to get to the point where I say "Screw the curve, it's all on me".

What was it Dave?

I need to start breathing, I feel a headache coming on.

Sorry to hear that, JurisDoctorate. I'm still waiting on my score.

Me too. I don't know what to do now. Cry? Drink? Register for December?

Thanks artesia, best of luck to you.

I'm sorry, natalie. 6 weeks to prep and guarantee that you don't have to feel this way again.

I don't know what the hell happened on mine....I scored a whole 26 points below my pt's. Not sure if I should retake or just give up all together.

My world isn't shattered. With my GPA and my awesome resume, I am hoping I can still get into my top choice school with my 160. I am still disappointed though, because it makes me feel stupid that I can't get the rockstar scores that happen all over this board. I've always felt like a smart person, school is easy for me, but the LSAT just makes me feel like an idiot.

Maybe you mis-bubbled a section? That really sucks, I'm sorry. I'm sure you'll do better on the retake.

Sounds like a misbubble, look at your chart when you see it and ask for a hand score if you see a discrepancy.

I improved my score by 6 points...but my last score sucked. And my new one kinda sucks to. Ugh.

Re-take. Scoring 26 below PT's is a fluke...or horrible anxiety, and in that case go see a doctor.

here.

May still have a chance at my old targets with an ED, but I'm also considering retaking in Dec.

What do you guys think of EDing with this score and retaking in Dec? EDIT: To have a shot at my old reaches

I understand that isn't the score you wanted, but please get a grip. Retake if you need to. Relax.

Me. I did terribly. Not prepping enough and cramming at the last minute when panic finally set in was a terrible idea but I thought that I might be able to pull it off anyhow. No such luck - debating about December now. Waiting to start law school until fall of 2012 just seems too far away - need to buckle down and pull off December.

Ugh.

I am absolutely shattered.

I have basically been studying for this for a year now. I would say clearly I'm just not smart enough, but that's not true. I am. And I should have scored 170+, not worse than I did in June. And I can't take it a 3rd time. I've already sent in my apps because I was banking on a 172.

I got a 168. My world has not been shattered, but it was lower than I wanted and not a score I want to apply with. So I will be retaking again...and try to figure out what went wrong. Instead of a class I'll go for self studying and a few hours of private tutoring.
