bored with this!!

Postby rachue » Wed Aug 10, 2011 10:06 pm

Is this happening to anyone else? Is this normal?

I started studying about a month and a half ago with Powerscore, improved by about 15 points, and even though I'm not scoring as high as I would like to, I just feel a bit burned out and uninterested in studying. I sit down to study, and can focus for about ten minutes max before daydreaming and needing to move. Am I the only one?! I need to be able to focus to get the score I want October 1!!!

This is totally unusual. Everyone else in the world (universe?) loves studying for the LSAT at all hours.

Take a few days off if you need to. If you aren't ready in October, take the test in December instead.

I've never had that happen to me to extent that you speak of.

I do find that if I study late in the day, or haven't exercised in a couple days, that my attention span suffers.

It's seriously the most important test of your life thus far. A three point difference can mean the difference between T1 and T2, MVP and HYS, or a scholarship to any school. If it's a motivation issue, read this: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=162036

(You got to feel bad for him though)

There are worse things in life than being bored. Just deal with it.

Worse things in life, like being the guy in that linked topic.

Yeah i know exactly what you're talking about. It's horrible.

I look at law school websites (for top 10 schools, for example) and read law school profiles on TLS. That should add some motivation. Think about getting the acceptance letter to a top 10

Other than that, take a couple days off and then come back.
