Question

Postby Reds622 » Mon Dec 27, 2010 5:06 pm

Im not quite sure why I am even posting this (probably redundant), but more for peace of mind. I was practicing between 162-167 consistently for the past 3 months. Day of the test comes and I thought it goes ok. Reading Comp was probably my worst section, Dental Caries not quite sure how I did, last passage had to rush through as 5 mins was called. It all seems like a blur but for the last passage it almost felt like I was almost "picking" answers if you know what I mean. Logic games went ok. Got all of the first game I think (except the last question on that game might be a bit of a ? mark). Last game of course I got all of it, Conferences I think I got all of em, but everyone saying how difficult it was is making me rethink as I dont remember having to tough a time. My problem was I left windows last and it had the most questions on it. I got through three, guessed on the rest. My first LR section was tricky ( with babies and ladders) Im not sure if this is allowed but on that question was the obvious answer the right one? Or was it tricky? My second LR sections I killed I think, finished with 3 minutes or so remaining. So for the past 3 weeks Ive been freaking out, this is my third time taking it and I need to go to school in the fall. No more delaying for me. Im not sure if this is a normal test result or if I goofed. I guess im looking for peace of mind over anything, but just not sure how this is going to turn out. In my mind I just dont see how I could have scored above a 165, and I keep telling myself that I scored in the mid 150's, although I can be confused for an eternal pessimist. Anyone have anything to offer? My target school is my undergraduate institution which is ranked between 40-60.

Thanks

I'm not really sure what your asking for? There's not much you can do at this point, you're score is already determined. Go with how you felt coming out.

I guess what I am asking is it normal to feel like you did not perform at your normal abilities and still score within your range? Is it test anxiety? Or if I have a feeling that I did not do quite as well as my practice exams is that the score Im staring at? Again probably all redundant, but reassuring.

I felt like I scored 175+ in Oct and ended up getting 167. It can go either way

Like the above have stated, how you feel you did doesn't mean anything TBH. I just suggested trusting your gut to maybe calm you down a bit as you do seemed stressed. No point in stressing, just appreciate the calm before the storm.

Good advice.

Good advice. Anyone have any opinions on how a law school feels about applicants who come from its undergrad institution? Good thing, bad thing? I just feel like Im right on the bubble with my target school, and I really really want to go there.

It's looked upon favorably, but its affect on your application is very small.
