123, you are an inspiration friend :) keep it up. When you get your 170+ this next June, send me a PM so I can celebrate for you; your dedication and the gains you've made already are nothing short of awesome.

I'm so nervous for Saturday. It's also making me more scared how scared I am... If that makes sense.

I completely understand - it is really easy to start worrying at this time. Just keep reminding yourself that your really can't change anything now - the work is already done - and I'm sure you'll do great!

Hey man! Thank you! I'm half way there. Thank you for the support. We will have a beer or five over the summer!

Xylocarp... Thank you as well!

Good luck to everyone again. You are all very smart and going to score real high judging from your posts.

Haha, I suppose so - I was just referring to the weeks and months of previous study that everyone here has done - obviously the last week is important too :)

+1

Also feeling nervous that it's going to get moved due to weather again. Supposed to get ice on Friday and for some reason they close everything here when that happens.

How many hrs should we be getting before the day of the test? I can function well on 5-6 but I know I should get more than that.

Get whatever you function best with. An extra 2 hours' sleep the night before is worth 20 hours study the day before, imo :)

Aw man, Now I am starting to feel the pressure.

I feel like every school that gave me a fee waiver is believing in me. I am a potentially high value applicant, and I feel (which may not be the case) that every school that gave me a fee waiver did so because I would be a quality addition to their institution.

I cant let them down. I cant let me down. I have to produce.

Oh boy, it is here.....the pressure. Cue the David Bowie

But seriously: everyone, do your best to stay relaxed; zen this test out as best you can. The stress won't help :) stay loose, and treat PT 71.5 as no more and no less than PT 71.5 if you can. Brain hacking ftw -- for serious.

I'm sitting in Starbucks before work reviewing right now and I cannot think of what my life was like before the LSAT. I'm kind of sad. Last monday doing this :twisted:

PT67 after 3 days off. *gulp*.

That gulp wasn't the gulp of nervousness though. Oh, no. It was the gulp of IMPENDING VICTORY. That's right folks, I was tasting victory before attaining it for ADDITIONAL MOTIVATION.

and plus because I'm nervous.

So I'm considering drilling those infamous mid to late 60s LG sections that a lot of you have been discussing, since LG is still the most worrisome thing for me and I'd like to drill some tougher full sections. At the same time, I wonder how much value I'll really be able to get out of them, and I also would like to hold onto some fresh PTs in case I have to retake.

What do you guys think, is it worth it?

I just don't know if drilling one or two or three sections will really make a difference if we get a tough LG section on Saturday (my biggest fear). Even if I drill tough sections a few times, Saturday might be tough in a different way that those drills don't prepare me for. You know?

And this is why the LSAT is the way it is. It is a test of ability. If it will help you become more capable, i say do it.

I am going to review every LR question I have done on Friday. It is half of the test and if I can bang those out and get a decent RC score, I know I can break 160.

I agree. All-in for this test; worry about a retake if and when you need to -- if the whole reason you end up needing to retake is because of LG, you'll regret not working through them :)
