I was so nervous going into the test that I didn't realize I needed to go to the bathroom until the second section. The next 50 minutes were absolute torture. But, I think the having-to-pee feeling might have helped me because I was finishing the sections faster than normal. I felt so bad for the people next to me because I was fidgeting and squirming in my seat so much.
At any point did you consider peeing yourself?


My second section was games and I was trying to finish early so I could go pee. I ended up finishing just in time so that didn't happen. The thought did cross my mind in the middle of the third section when I was having cold sweats. It must have looked like I was sitting in a hula-chair or something with all the weight shifting. I ended up going with a "there is no spoon" method and tried to trick my bladder that it still had plenty of space. I guess it kinda workd, my bladded didnt explode.

Presuming you're serious: you don't need to adhere to word counts. Everyone wants a lawyer who knows when to break the rules. They're really more like guidelines. You don't want to be a criminal lawyer; you want to be a criminal lawyer.

They were already released. If you didn't receive yours, it means your score was flagged for cheating.


I thought calculators were allowed! Its not my fault.

Conform. It's best to convey that you understand the ins and outs of arithmetic.


I respectfully disagree; blatantly and intentionally disregarding law school application instructions shows adcoms that you are comfortable taking control and setting new trends. I would imagine they would even give you a URM-esque bump for it. I wish I had thought of it first, actually.

I had committed myself to peeing or pooping my pants if during the test I had some sort of potty emergency. No way I was throwing that 3 months of studying out the window for an emergency bathroom break.


This makes me very uncomfortable since I'm picturing you as the neckbeard at my test center who was loudly discussing TOP DASH LAW DASH SCHOOLS DOT COM at scared and nervous individuals

I imagine legal employers want to see you have the ability to create and venture out of norms.

Yes. People need to chill out. Probably no scores today. I will venture elsewhere because I'm finding that this thread induces anxiety

I thought the negative connotation automatically associated with the word 'conform' would have adequately conveyed my intended sarcasm. My bad.

I did this in October. 3 months out the window for a 1st section bathroom break. Proctors took FOREVER and I had been drinking coffee all morning. Horrible.

Jesus you neurotic freaks just go piss and come back. I think I took 2-3 bathroom breaks during the LSAT, because I really love coffee.
