LSAT dreams

Postby verklempt » Tue Dec 14, 2010 6:43 pm

I slept badly the night before the LSAT. Not surprising. I was still keyed up the rest of the day, and didn't sleep very well on Saturday night either. My main problem was the LG replay: I'd find myself half-awake sorting through logic game scenarios. I figured my brain would have finished processing that by Sunday night, but no such luck, and then last night, once again, my sleep was haunted by logic games. Not real logic games (whose details I barely remember) but bizarre versions thereof, where the multiple choice answers tend to be real things (A. = an open window, B. = a dog in the corner, etc) and nothing makes much sense, sort of like on LSAT day.

Anyone else suffering LG-PTSD?

Yep for sure, although my LSAT dreams post-test usually tend to be of me receiving my dream score and then having the mid-dream realization that I'm dreaming. Very annoying!

I was going to come on here and do a fake PTSD post shortly after the test; I had the DSM-IV open, but it just got too silly.

In all seriousness, I wouldn't be worried. I'm no shrink, but considering all the prep we've all been doing leading up to this test, it would be concerning if the LSAT (and LS generally) weren't all we thought about.

i had these before/after both lsats i took; before, i usually had dreams where i was taking a test but kept fallling asleep in it and was freaking out but just couldnt stay awake no matter what. after i took it in october, i had either dreams i did amazingly or dreams that i did badly. one of the particularly vivid 'bad' dream scores was 2 points ABOVE my real score. fml.

My dream was before the LSAT. I dreamed that my wife's grandfather died, and I came late to the LSAT but they wouldn't let me in. I woke up in a cold sweat, and was quite relieved that it had been a dream. I was all set to get out of bed and get rolling, when I realized... It was only 1:30 am.

Two days before, I had a dream that I woke up at 8:30. Considering on the real day we started like right at 9am, I wouldn't have made it.

I dreamt that I was in the LSAT and just totally blanked out and only made it through 8 questions on LG and then had a breakdown knowing I had to cancel. I woke up and was very relieved :)

I haven't had LSAT nightmares since the night before I took it, but the days right before and after almost every night I was in like a semi-conscious sleep with my brain just constantly thinking about real (and fake) problems as hard as I tried not to.

Recently my LS nightmares have been limited to the occasional sitting straight up in bed in the middle of the night panicking that my dream was real and that I had sent the wrong "Why X" or attached a second PS instead of an addenda. At first those were so bad that I would actually get out of bed and pull up my applications to make sure it wasn't real but once I read over my applications a million times and realized that the right schools got all the right things I finally started chilling out about it.

I can certainly think of worse dreams to have before taking the LSAT.

Yea dude, I had one where for some reason a school called me in for an interview because my LSAT was borderline and then yelled at me for taking Org Chem II pass/fail my last semester. Woke up with the fear---even though it has been YEARS since I graduated

Exactly. I'd much rather have a dream featuring Reese Witherspoon than waking up in fear.

I had my first LSAT dream last night (took 12/11 test).

Since the LG section was so hard, LSAC felt it severely skewed the results so they threw out all of the test scores. I woke up terrified because I felt it did pretty good, took a few minutes of convincing myself that was absolutely unrealistic.

LSAT dreams suck, especially when you wake up wanting to cry only to realize 2 minutes later it was a dream. Wait until you're waiting to hear back from schools though. I had a dream about Penn the other night.
