Feeling less confident now

Postby naillsat » Fri Dec 07, 2012 3:15 pm

Right after finishing the LSAT last Saturday, I felt very good and thought I could miss -14 at worst and maybe -10 at best. However, the more I think about my answers, the less comfortable I feel with the test. I finished all the sections on time except that had to guess two questions on the A/B passage and the last two or three questions (after eliminating a few answer choices) on the LG. I feel very good with the LR and could probably missed -2 for both LR sections.

The test is a blur, making me feel less confident and uneasy. I know there's nothing I can do now with the test, but I wondering if this weird feeling happened to most people here?

Don't worry about it. Most of the test is a blur for me too, I think it's pretty common.

I wouldn't fret it; just like answering a multiple choice question, your gut is typically correct. You shouldn't think too far into these after-thoughts.

I feel the same, but there's nothing we can do about it now anyways. Just stay positive and work on apps so you're ready to go when scores drop.

To reiterate the general opinion: I wouldn't worry about it. I came out of the October test completely confused, I could barely remember anything from it. I was expecting anywhere from a 158 to a 170 and hitting either of those extreme outliers would have been only a mild surprise. Ended up right in the middle (and almost the exact average of my last ten PT's).

FWIW, I also feel that the whole experience was a blur. My confidence was shaken after the first section (for me LG) because although I "plugged and chugged" through games 3 and 4, I found them to be harder than expected. That has drastically affected my outlook on the test as a whole, despite the fact that I didn't skip any other questions on the test and felt relatively good about my answer choices.

That said, I wouldn't even be able to guess at how well I performed on Saturday. The whole thing is a haze at this point. From what I've read, it's entirely normal to be feeling this way. We're all feeling the same way, and there's, IMO, an important sense of solidarity among those of us on here. Hopefully there are only ~25 more days to go before we're all put out of our misery!
