The board recognizes those on-topic contributions and tries to offer us all a fresh start from the shitposting

but then it gets ruined immediately anyway

Also, can we talk about what we're doing the week before the test? I've decided to take off Wed - Fri at least.

I might do a confidence retake of my favorite 60s/70s PT on Wednesday, and then drill a few sections on Thursday. Just really light drilling on Friday, lots of running, and a full body massage (hopefully to completion)


I'm only taking off Friday due to lack of vacation days. I plan on getting up at 5:00 all week (nbd really since I normally get up around 5:30-5:45), do two sections of LG every day (instead of the one that I'm doing now), and some LR and RC sprinkled on top. No full PTs after next weekend. No drinking all week. Keep up the exercise. I plan to go on a run before the test as it is the best way to wake up (in combination with caffeine consumption) hence the need to rise real early.

3 days a week PT/ Go over PT
Other days: 6-8 games (just re-runnng cambridge 1-38 to stay sharp), an RC section from an old test, plus one comparative passage, 10-20 Difficult LR questions of a given type.

If I see something slipping I'll do some more focused drilling.

Edit: Why do I always start a new page?


I devised a similar approach, but with less on my non-pt days. I should probably step them up though... The week before the test I'm going to retake 3 or so old PTs.

On an unrelated note I've been rewatching House of Cards and keep muttering Underwood or Underwood-like phrases to myself while studying "the higher the mountain, the more treacherous the climb" "I will not be lulled into a false sense of security" complete with southern drawl. My gf thinks I'm going insane.

How many hours do you all sleep, usually? I need to wake up earlier, but I never make it to bed before 12am. I feel like I am running on empty these past couple of weeks. Worried my sleep deficit is going to effect my performance.

I need 8 hours. Anything less and I am in slow mode all day.

PS the lounge is tearing me up for saying I'd rather date a smoker than a gym bro.

I will be PTing through wednesday and doing some light drilling thursday and friday while celebrating the holidays (shalom). waking up by 7 each day since my site is about 10-15 minutes away.


:mrgreen: (Green with envy)

Also, shalom!

Also, I'm in the same situation re: test center location, but I've been getting out of bed by 6:30 this month, because of the whole brain-not-fully-awake-for-2-hours thing. Plus, like Hand said, running.

Right? Ugh.

My husband was a smoker when we first started dating, and he quit, and ok, whatever NBD. But I dated a gym bro many years ago and it was absolutely terrible.

How long have you prepped for the test and how many hours, on average did you put into studying per week?

Thanks

Smoking is a habit, a gym bro is a stereotype/personality. I don't see how the comparison is that meaningful.

regulartime wrote:Ok. Just finished the LSAT trainer 12 week program. All that is left is more PTs, reviews, and drilling. Consistently scoring 167 on PTs, it doesn't matter if old or in the 70s. Never less than than 167 but never above one 169. Almost perfect on LR, usually only miss 2 questions total from both sections. LG and RC are inconsistent (4-8 misses). Usually LG brings me down. What resource is recommended to improve these with about 2 weeks til test day. I need to speed up LG so I'm not rushing through the last game. I feel like it's too late to start using something else because Mike's tactics work well for me and have really improved my abilities, I'm just too slow still.

Ideas?

Thanks.


U should b drillin lg 24/7 n watching 7sage w that LR u should be at or above 170 no excuses not 2 b

Hand, you're not american right? I think people with a more european perspective (I'm including Montreal in this) see smoking differently.

I was immediately eviscerated in the one-offs thread, so I didn't say this there, but there was definitely something kind of attractive seeing my husband (stalking victim at the time) frowning over some Kant, with a coffee and a smoke.

Gym bros are necessarily idiots. So no you're not.

A gym bro is a guy who has few interests outside of building muscle. These interests tend to include picking up hot bitties and clubbing.
