Since we aren't k-jders we aren't studying 24/7 bc of work, but the questikns get answered. And then on the weekends we usually have 2-3 days straight on topic when everyone is PT'ing
TL;DR: when ppl ask questions they're answered, but ppl freely choose not to ask
Yeah, like, look, the way I see it is that you can't be OMGLSAT 24/7. We talk about the LSAT a TON in here. We may not be talking about specific questions so much, but we do talk about how we feel about our studying, what we're planning on reviewing next, best tactics in review. I mean, in the past three days we have discussed, off the top of my head:
1. The general difficulty of reading comprehension over time, specifically whether it becomes more difficult from PT 55+
2. Our methods for selecting between two LR answer choices when both look to be really strong
3. Difficult LG we've encountered lately and how we're planning to polish off both our timing and understanding
4. If it would be advantageous to use melatonin to get better sleep for these next few weeks
5. The effects of diet and exercise on our cognitive abilities
6. Lack of motivation in studying
7. The potential for electro-shock to enhance performance
8. How to proceed after scoring poorly on a PT, when your average has been much stronger
9. The possibility of postponing the test until December
10. Test day rules, what we can and cannot bring, and how to find out where exactly your testing will occur
I'm sure there is a lot more, but, I think people see what they choose to see. The most active of us are employed full-time and spend most our free time at work whiling away the hours on here until we can get home to study - I don't think any of us are "partying" right now with seventeen days until the test. I also think that having an LSAT-specific outlet, where you can come to chit-chat and shoot the shit and ask questions pertaining to the test or just have a laugh, and know you are in the company of people who are experiencing a lot of the same worry and anxiety as you are - is really important for everyone.
I don't know, I might be the only one who feels this way and I'm sure I'm at least a particularly extreme example, but, I've mentioned my doctor told me that I needed to alleviate anxiety. I've been scoring a lot higher and feeling a lot calmer since I started spending more time in this thread. You can argue correlation-causation, but if you did, we'd be talking about some LSAT stuff again...
