6 Pencils, a Watch and a Dream.

Postby Baseball Fanatic » Thu Oct 04, 2012 6:07 pm

October 6 is 2 days away, I like to call it D-Day. My calender has been marked for this day for months now and I can't believe in 2 days that I will be taking the test of my life. I'm scared as shit. Not only do I have bad test anxiety, I have a fear of failure. I can't believe that one test can determine where my future is going to end up. All of my internships, late night studying and hustle in undergrad can mean nothing if I don't do well on this test. I'm starting to think maybe I attended one too many frat parties. Besides that, this isn't pre-season in the NFL anymore. This is the playoffs. Win or Go Home! I have took numerous tests in my life and felt similar pressure, but none to this magnitude. Maybe because in undergrad I could convince the TA to raise my grade if I was dissatisfied, and if the TA was a young woman, well...I KNEW I could convince her. But with the LSAT, not so much. Good looks can only get you so far. The LSAT can't see my beaming personality or killer good looks, neither can Law School. All that counts is a number and all the committee sees is a number; and this number can make or break you.

For all the people out there who have been studying day in and day out and sacrificed watching GLEE or Jersey Shore (last season btw :( ) to study, it will be all worth it. I am trying to be calm and not think about the test because I have been stressed for the past few days. The purpose of me posting this is because I know I am not the only one who feels like they are going to die. So people, please share your thoughts stories and concerns, we can try and motivate each other that we can conquer the LSAT. Think of it as the prep talk in the locker room before the big game :D

And please do everybody a favor and SHOWER the night before!

GOOD LUCK OCTOBER TAKERS!

I have a compact battery operated pencil sharpener that I am going to bring with me on test day. It's real cool, it's green. My favorite color.

Is that legal?
Sounds noisy.


I am going to check, I would only sharpen during the break. If not, then I will bring more than 6. lol

Good job OP.

First time I took the LSAT, I brought 2 mechanical pencils. Had to borrow a pencil from the proctor. Walk of shame if there ever was one.


Not this time though. Already feel 100% more prepared.

Aside from the lack of pencils, do you feel more prepared taking the LSAT the second time around because you have taken it before and know the atmosphere of the test?

The only advice I can give myself in preparing for tomorrow from personal experience is not to underestimate the adrenaline you will have on test day.

Take the same amount or less of stims you used per test prepping.

Also, prepare for stupid little small tables. They suck.

Other than that, it is what it is. Nothing changes on test day.

This adrenaline, is it bad or good? Does it help or make it worst? and what about the infamous second guessing and torn between two answers?

That's a question I can't answer as it depends on the person.

Probably a double edged sword, but at the end of the day the mind is always stronger than the body.
