I withdrew... ughhh

Postby noleknight16 » Sat Jun 04, 2011 4:09 pm

I have no idea what's wrong with me. I can't focus or concentrate long enough to get through 4 sections. I'm not ADHD but I'm just in a significant brain fog or something. I got -14 on a Reading Comprehension yesterday (I average around -3 or 4). I can't afford to just throw my 2nd test down the drain. I plan on regrouping, taking in October, and then December if necessary. To be honest, I didn't even study that hard (mostly due to the fact I was taking 19 credit hours in the spring) so I doubt its LSAT fatigue. I hope I can shake out of this funk.

Yeah, I can totally sympathize with you. My brain just refused to cooperate on the real deal so I'm retaking. Well, since you didn't study that hard, it doesn't sound like burn out. Maybe endurance? I know I'm going to work on my endurance.

I'm retaking in October so welcome to the club :). Let's rock the LSAT come October.

Ew. Helpful and mature. This site is certainly a mecca only for the cerebral types in society.

OP, don't worry, the "brain fog" is common before you've built endurance. My first two strictly timed PTs were much more of a struggle than the later ones, despite the fact that I had just wrapped up a busy last semester and was no stranger to long stints of studying. You just need more strict PT practice.

Yeah, a real man would take the test, accept his 148, and enroll in Cooley at full tuition.

On a more serious note: can you take a week or two off before the next test and take a five section test each day for a week or two? You might get a bit burnt out, but you can take a break after that to recover. I did one test a day for almost two weeks, and brain fog is no longer a problem.

Yes, I'll be graduated in August and can study openly from that point.

Smart, especially if you are still in UG.

Ironic, since you're retaking.
