Help me plan the rest of my night

Testing Monday. I just took a never before seen PT under testing conditions, and had an interesting result. I scored a 173, it was pt 64, Oct 11. I was happy with the score, but I couldn't believe the section trends. I'm fairly weak with LG, and very strong with LR, hit or miss with RC. I aced both LR sections, -0... LG-5 RC-5
Granted I'm not good with LG, -5 was a bit high, and RC I thought I did better, having felt good about the section, but -5 isn't terrible.

I usually score in this range, but push more points around, -1-3-4-2 or so. This concerns me because had I not perfected those sections, -5-5 on LG and RC puts me in a bad spot. I don't think I've ever -0-0'd LR under test conditions, so my 173 doesn't seem to be repeatable on monday.

I'm still good to go a few hours studying tonight. I'm considering jumping right into pt 65 to keep stamina sharp, and get a different representation on where I stand. On the other hand, drilling LG seems the right thing to do, although I doubt I can make any drastic improvement in 3 hours that will really matter come Monday, plus I'll be taking a section by PTing anyway...

I could always drill just LG tomorrow to stay sharp in that regard, but I generally subscribe to the "no lsat the night before" mindset...

What to do with these critical last hours.

Seriously, relax mode in my opinion. Then again, I always PT better after a day off.

Some light drilling wouldn't hurt, probably what I'm going to do after the game. Definitely nothing too extensive like a PT.

I doubt taking PT 65 would be very representative also, especially since it's late and you're probably a bit fatigued. I would just drill LG for the night and rest tomorrow. If you happen to bomb PT 65, then you're just going to hurt your confidence before the real deal.

I would actually consider movies. At some point you just have to be cool with where you're at. At that point, you get into a zone in which you might actually outperform your PT. But your score isn't going to go up even a point if you study all day tomorrow. It might go down.

Just reset your brain tomorrow, jog Monday morning, run through some LG and LR at the test center before you start, don't panic but don't not remind yourself of how focused you want to be, bring raisins, don't get distracted by anything or anyone, and you must just 179. Totally possible bro...

I took 65. Scored a 172. -3LG -3RC.. Thats exactly what I was looking for, a grade at least close to the earlier 173, but without such a strange distribution of mistakes, I feel better prepared that that test wasn't a fluke now.
