I'm bringing all my prep books, drilling packets, graded tests and sections, and more pencils, erasers, and sharpeners than I could ever need. I can't believe there are only three more days. Also ready to go - my LSAT outfit. Hell yea blue gingham.

This makes me feel underprepared.


Right? Someone please remind me to steal some pencils from the supply closet before leaving work today. :lol:


don't do it unless they have black ticonderoga's at your office


Triconderogas are a weaker form of TCR as well. I prefer their erasers - black Ticons's are pure shit. You can get a pack of 24 at Staples for like $5.00. Considering the amount of money I've spent on everything else LSAT, I bought two packs. I sharpened 15 for the LSAT - three for each section (excluding writing). Re: Smcc - I'm spending Thursday and Friday at home, and I'll be on the road for work after noon today, so I'm getting prepped early.

On the health front, I'm definitely feeling something. I've been exhausted (not sure if this is the stress) but also woken up with some congestion. Also, something crazy is going on in my lower half. Maybe thirty ounces of berries in a day was a mistake. My mom is making me great food for the next two days, so hopefully I'll stabilize before Saturday.

Apart from reasons provided by their intrinsic quality, bringing a stack of black ticonderoga's is mostly a way of signalling to the other test takers in the room that you mean business.

I mean, is pencil choice really that big of a deal? It's just bubbling;does it make a difference? I've only ever used mechanical pencils, so, I am genuine in my question.

I think sharpener is a more important part of the prep process than pencils, but a pencil is the only way you score points on the LSAT. You need something that feels good in the hand, writes and sharpens well, and gives you confidence. Black ticons do that for me; last year, TTT Walmart pencils didn't. Fyi sfogs, mechanical pencils are prohibited on the test.

Pencil and sharpener matter for me! I used these horrible pink Target pencils on the June test and they kept slipping out of my fingers because of the weird finish on them. And the sharpener (also Target) sucked. Ticonderoga and Staedtler all the way.
