Nervous?

Postby Br3v » Sat Jun 09, 2012 9:04 pm

If I didn't have superhuman nerves of steel, I would say I may potentially be beginning to feel nervous. Incase anyone else may be starting to as well, I figure we can coach eachother through it here.

We have studied and learned everything, it's just time to see the results.
I plan on converting any nerves I may feel Mon morning into pure concentration.

How you guys feeling? Whats the plan for tonight and tomorrow?

Feeling pretty nervous too. I know I will feel nervous during the exam. Hopefully it doesn't affect me too much, or if it does hopefully it affects me in a good way.

I know I am prepared, I know I am ready, and I know I have it in me to get my average (around 173-174) and to exceed it. I just hope I live up to my potential on test day.

You will. The good thing about nerves is that you are in direct control of them. Easier said than done to put them to the side, but it's nice to know its within your control.

I don't know why, but I keep expecting this to be different in some way. It's irrational, though - this will be just like every other PT that we've taken. Every LR question will be like the other LR questions, every RC passage just like the other passages, and every game just like the games we've seen hundreds of time.

I think the key for me is keeping it in perspective.

If I don't, I'll have major trouble, because even on normal exams I have trouble. I'll have studied for a significant period of time, but I go into the test, my adrenaline starts to rush, and I just blank. Luckily the LSAT doesn't involve memorization, so that should help, but I'm still nervous about it.


The one benevolent thing the test-makers do is that the first passage, game, LR questions are generally pretty straightforward. So go in knowing that you CAN answer the first few questions correctly, and once you start, you'll be on autopilot.

I just get so anxious on tests. It gets to the point where I have intrusive thoughts that distract from what I should be focusing on.

This test is the most important thing that you have done in your life up to this point.
It will decide what school you go to, what town you live in, possibly what people you will hangout with and who you marry, what jobs you will get, possible area you will work in, what kind of debt you will have, and ultimately decide the course of your life from here on out.
This is what you have been studying endless hours for. The slightest error and your life could go down the drain. It's time.

I'm going in with the attitude of "there's always October if you mess this one up" although I DEF. don't endorse it for those that are PTing in the 170's or PTing consistently where they want their score to be. I've only studied for a month and half which wasn't nearly enough and I know I can KILL this thing if I had a few more months of studying, but I feel like I can do well if I'm focused and not making stupid ass mistakes like anticipating what the question stem is asking for after reading the first few words :\. Good luck to everyone though, let's get it on Monday

I wrote in Dec and will be retaking in Oct. When I went in, I went in w a "I can retake" mentality. I think it def helps having the ability to retake. I thght I would be super nervous, and to some extent, I was, but I was able to put everything aside and use that energy to power through it (65 RC section that killed me that I thght was experimental. FAIL).

I was feeling completely fine until I took 65 today and the RC killed me.

Now all I can picture is getting a score report that says 130. Need to think happy thoughts...

This is the most terrifying and true thing I've ever read and I'm not even taking it until October.

Another vote for excitment here. I was feeling nervous 4 hours ago. I'm shooting for a 174 on the dot. Been the plan all along, been in that range, but only above it once (although significantly). I had a lot on my mind for my last Pt and scored a 168, and was starting to think "Ok, all the high scores were flukes, this can still happen, I'm close enough so I'll sit now, and start reprepping for Oct (my last attempt)". Today I took not one, but two consecutive full PT's under testing conditions, scoring a 173 first and a 172 next, 64+65, tests I've never seen even a single question on ever. It's not quite 174, but its enough to feel like I stand a good chance tomorrow, especially considering 10 sections back to back had to have helped stamina prep.

180 or bust.

Okay, 178 or bust.

Okay, 175 or bust.

Yeah. Yeah, that's the ticket. 175 or bust.

... but maybe 180.
