Speaking of more mental energy... Has anyone even bothered to practice the essay? Pretty concerned that by the end of the test I'll just be, like, dumb.


I know we laugh about how irrelevant the essay is, but I'm actually a little bit worried about it. Has anyone ITT even looked at/actually written one in practice? ETA: Should we?

West coast checking in. Once my brain wakes up In an hour, I'm going to take PT65, review it, etc. My mother-in-law arrives today for like a 5 day stretch (worst timing everrr), so I want to get done what I can. She's a cool lady, but she compulsively dispenses folksy advice :roll:

When I get anxious during a PT, my brain fully ceases to function. It's horrible. I see that I'm taking too long on an LG and suddenly it's "OMG I just ruined it it's over I fail the PT I'll fail the LSAT I'll fail my life CALM DOWN, SFOGS no I fucking cannot, will not, this is serious, this is only question number 6 but it is 100% the most important thing anyone has ever done in the history of the world Harvard will hate me GAME OVER."

Guys, I'm about to ask a really strange question pertinent to the above: Do you think I will be allowed to bring a quartz crystal with me in my one-gallon baggie? Or will I have to smuggle it in my underwear or something?

Smuggling quartz crystal in your underwear seems credited

Not to mention I cant even swallow right now cuz my tonsils are likely the size of elephantitis balls, so I got all of 0 minutes of sleep. What a setback. Had a PT scheduled today but thats out the window


Get yourself to a clinic and see if they can give you a corticosteroid to reduce the swelling and suppress your immune reaction. You can't be sick like that right now. LSAT is in sixteen days.

At least sum1 ITTA can give u helpful advice


Shots ffffffired!

We should all say f the lsat and start our own law school. TTTT school for colonel's and BP's who like baseball for underachievers
ps. fogs

Im suckin it up and goin to the library. I feel like absolute ass but at this point I can't afford to miss a day

Coffee with butter and coconut oil is surprisingly good. Let's see if this translates into pointsss on PT65. <3
