Adderall and LSAT

Postby jortiz682 » Sat Apr 23, 2011 9:56 pm

Alright, so I'm on round 3 of the LSAT. Scored mid-high 160's first 2 times, but really need to do better to get into the schools I want and to get more $ from more warm weather schools.

I have a prescription for Adderall and have for a couple years. I find it to be incredibly beneficial for LSAT prep and the test itself, but one side effect that has thrown me off has been anxiety. I'm thinking of getting a beta blocker for a few prep tests prior and seeing how that works, but it's always hard to simulate actual test anxiety. Anyone ever tried these before?

Also, I recommend adderall for studying for those who are able to acquire it. It's not just for ADD kids. Our parents called it speed. It's just amphetamine. It makes your brain work a little faster. If we legalized it our economy would improve. Anyway, not to lecture, just saying that if you aren't, you are probably technically somewhat at a competitive disadvantage. The Barry Bonds effect, if you will.

Wow this was an immensely helpful tip. Take some prescription meds to do better on the LSAT, genius, I wasting all my time doing timed sections and reviewing PTs! I assume you have the medical credentials necessary to safely prescribe medication, thanks!

This is way more useful than my advice of red vines, diet coke, and a quick j/o.

They give you a break, might as well use it. Ignore dirty looks from other people in your row.

I've heard LSD is best. Don't take it prior to the test - that weakens the effect. Just take a tab LSAT morning.

I solicited people in my row for help. I needed to rest my hands. They did too.

It's stupid, don't do it, are you going to do it throughout law school? No. And if you are you're just cheating yourself and your future clients.
