Man you need to chill out. Seriously. No one should want to go to law school this bad. Gobble Gobble.
To stand up for Outlook and explain why I am studying tomorrow too, Outlook and I both live abroad with no family (although he has his girlfriend) so its not like our celebrations will be a big deal ifcelebrating at all.
Actually better to study. Distracts one from being away from family and friends on the holidays.
Thanks for representing Gisney. All the Peace Corps and Fulbrighter people are meeting up for Thanksgiving tomorrow (should be lots of fun--we're making a pie!), are you guys doing anything over where you are?
Just took PT32:
LR1: -3 LR2: -4 RC: -3 LG: -1 LGexp: -0 - 172
Not happy. For the record, every single time I have taken a full-scale 5-section test like this over the past 1.5 months, I have scored between 169 and 172. With no discernible pattern or improvement. However, I spent the whole last week drilling and reviewing specific LR question types and got my individual section scores down to -2 or -1 consistently. My RC score on this test is a travesty, it shouldn't have been above -1...
But I'm not going to change my strategy significantly. I'll keep on drilling individual sections and then taking 1 full-size PT once a week, at least for the next couple weeks or until Christmas. I want to steadily plug holes in the bucket of my LSAT knowledge... can't get frustrated, can't get frustrated...
I'm frustrated though. I thought I would hit 175 on this test.
I have stamina issues. I alternate between two modes: (1) exhaustion and carelessness and (2) anxiety and lack of focus. Both are deadly. Anybody have any stamina-related tips? I expect to start taking bunches of 5-section tests starting after Christmas, so maybe my stamina will pick up then?
