Have you ever had nightmare about test day?

Like one where you open up your booklet and see a totally foreign test than what you have been preparing for?

Pretty routinely. I tend to dream about realistic events going on in my life. I had a dream a few nights ago in which the RC passages were in Arabic, or some shit. Woke up and did some prep.

Yes, testing nightmares are very common among LSAT takers. I've had several. Most of mine involve new section types on the LSAT on test day.

Almost all TLSers have "score dreams" between taking the LSAT and getting back their score. So be ready for more LSAT dreams after you take the test.

Had one last night, I took an Uber (DC cab) to the wrong test center and then I didn't know where I was so I went back home and missed my test. It wasn't that exciting of a dream, but I woke up upset that I missed the LSAT.

That scoreboard sounds terrible and absolutely fantastic at the same time.

I once had a weird dream where my LSAT was going fine, cruising through the first two logic games, and then I get to the third game, but there's a twist. There is no fourth game, but halfway through the 3rd logic game it literally transformed into some bizarre, unsolvable pinball game where pinball machines popped up on everyone's desks. I have no idea why pinball was incorporated into my dream, because I haven't played a machine in years.

This. I can't tell you how many dreams I've had of a 180 score. Every time I wake up from one of those dreams I die a little inside.

My biggest fear would be not being able to diagram a game correctly on actual test date after going -0/-1 in all of my practices

HA. I remember back in the LSAT days I used to have those nightmares all the time. My favorite was when I turned the page and it was no longer multiple choice, it was short answer physics and chem questions. The most heartbreaking are the 180 dreams, when you wake up its so depressing.

Absolutely hilarious. I guess you should've drilled the Misc. LG packet more.

I had a nightmare two days before the actual test where I felt I owned the test. When I got up to turn it in, I walked over to the proctor and right as I gave her the test, she gave me back the graded version immediately. The graded version had a big 135 (the score my best friend got the first time) written in huge red font and she looked at me and said, "you and I know you cant do better than this, so why try?"

I woke up literally drenched in sweat.

Lol the good news is that I did much better than that on the real day.

Your subconscious hates you, what did you do to yourself when you were young to generate such anger? lol

Oh yes. I have nightmares. I literally woke up in a swear after my worst one :

I was taking the LSAT and cruising. Every logic game inference made, RC passages dominated and LR sections cake. But, at the end of the test, I realized I had mis-bubbled every answer. I panicked and asked the proctor if I could just change my bubbles. Of course I was denied. Also, for some reason, I couldn't cancel my score.

To add insult to injury the LSAC called me to let me know I would have scored a 180 had I bubbled correctly

When i first started studying, I had some vague nightmare that there was actually two admissions tests and I had to pick which one on the day of the test, but i didn't know which one i had studied for. I spent the whole test trying to pick which test to take.

I woke up to the worst panic attack i've ever had. like a "call 911 I'm pretty sure i'm dying" one.

Yea had a couple. I remember I had one where during testing a bunch of people just started playing loud music and just dancing in the room. Then the supervisor was like screw everyone you guys wasted your time. Damn that was a nightmare.
