Seconded (minus the regular reading of Derrida & co.); I'd recommend something more along the lines of contemporary epistemology or metaphysics if you want to go the philosophy route.

Yeah, me too. Sometimes it spikes up suddenly and then drops back down.


So it goes. At least we will be able to discuss our neurotic thoughts here instead of boring our friends and loved ones with our obsession.

I always think I answered every question right unless I had to guess. I'm generally wrong and do worse than I thought, but it helps during the waiting period when you're overconfident and convined you scored at the top of your range. Of course, the bitterness and self-contempt that comes after scores are released balances that out.

This is seriously not healthy guys. Go get drunk or something.

I bombed it. Didn't actually get to finish a single section except for the essay.

Your 'tar kind of makes me want to rage. Screw that section.

What's the over/under on average number of heart wrenching, non test score related emails, we will all get from LSAC, in the next 2-4 weeks?

Seconded (hear, hear)!

I'm applying for 2012 though, so this was basically a diagnostic for me. I have no idea how I'm gonna get over the timing issue. Every test I've ever taken, I'm one of the last 5 to complete. It's safe to say I don't like being rushed. I bubbled in answers to all questions but I didn't actually completely read any given section.

I'm not obsessing yet, though this is an amusing thread to read.

March 4? Watch out. My daughter will be having a gaggle of 8YOs over for her birthday sleepover and I'll be torn between hitting "refresh" on my LSAC account and actually running her party.

It's been a little over 24 hours since I stepped out of the testing center.

I want my score.

Uhm, are you serious? Your daughter's slumber party? She's going to have a birthday every year, you only get an LSAT score 1-3 times in youre WHOLE LIFE! Throw a couple DVDs and a pizza their way and lock yourself in your bedroom with your laptop.

After hours of obsessing and having a LSAT nightmare, I don't even want to know my score now.

I always have pre-LSAT nightmares.

The first time, I had a nightmare that I got a 162 and had no idea what to do with my life after. I also slept for only about 3 hours the night before the test.
This time, I am not sure if I had a nightmare about not being able to sleep before the test or if I actually couldn't fall asleep before the test. I am leaning towards nightmare, because I woke up well-rested, and in my dream recollection I'd adjusted the heat in my room but I hadn't actually.
I also had a text on my phone from around 12:15 am that I would've checked had I still been awake then.

I am going crazyyyyy.

There was at least one sure typo in the 26 question LR that made me think it was experimental. Alas, it was not. I also sort of remember a few other things. I wonder if they'll drop any of the questions. Did anyone think that the 26 question LR was harder than the 25 question one?

I thought it was harder. but it was also the first section for me, and my mind wasn't really warmed up.

I also really want to know the score now, so that I will be able to decide whether to retake or not on June...

Son of a bitch! You would think that I would have nerves under control after taking this test several times, but I did not. I was honestly thinking of just canceling and sticking with the score I have on file during the second section, but I ended up doing a little better than I expected on that section. This was my breakdown:

Exp LG: Had to guess on all of the last game and was praying to a God that I don't believe in that it was experimental.
LR1: Freaked out from guessing on all of the last game and lost focus and was on q 15 25 minutes into the section. Somehow, I managed to get to all of them except for 3 which I guessed on. This is when I decided maybe things might turn out okay.
RC: I skipped the first passage seeing how it was only 5 questions in case I ran out of time. This is exactly what happened as I had 3 minutes left for the first passage. I decided that it was not worth it to try and read the passage and attempt a question or two. Instead I focused on the ones I already did and guessed on all 5 for the first passage. I am really hoping that almost all the ones I actually attempted were right and praying for some B's on the first RC passage.
LG: I was so f'in excited to see another LG and decided to kill it. I am pretty sure I got 3 games completely right. On the 4th game, I was running out of time and had to guess on 2-3 (don't remember). It went a lot better than the 1st LG though.
LR2: Fuckin lost concentration again and was at question 20 with 5 minutes left. Ended up having to guess on 3. Again, praying that almost all the one's I attempted were right.

Even though my concentration was lacking, I think this test was easier than the October and December LSATs. The curve might suck, but who knows?
I need a 160 or higher to get me off a couple wait lists, so really hoping that I at least accomplished that. For now, I will believe that I only missed the ones I guessed on and ended up with a -13 to -14 and a 165+ score. Please baby Jesus, help me out!

Yeah, in the past there have been multiple experimental game and RC sections floating around on testday, making it a bit harder to figure out which ones were real.
