You shouldn't have complained about your testing center. This should serve as a warning to others would may want to do this.


I'm not gonna cancel, (canceling would grant me a free test though) but I feel like reading everyone's horror stories of feeling fine and actually doing 6-10 points lower really scares me. Bc the fact that I complained means I already felt bad ab my possibility of a good outcome. The only good thing that will come out of the complaint honestly, is if they agree to add a letter to my acct saying there were test center irregularities.

eta: I'm afraid my score will be lower than the first take.

3 am :shock: I'm usually up by 5 for yoga & meditation (and study from 6-7:30 or so), I might be able to do 4:30 (lol, who am I kidding, prob not)
I can check in when I wake up at 5

I try to get up between 5-6 every morning... and just about every morning I get up at like 7... the struggle is real
its funny too cuz over the summer i woke up everyday at 5 to work out bc I had work all day everyday practically... Why cant I be like that again :/

I didn't drill at all before. I guess I need to get some cambridge stuff to do that most effectively. I Just read the material, and took a test or in like 2 cases a partial test.

Def drill. I used to be realllly bad at LG, like -9 to -14 & it was depressing. I started drilling hardcore & now I'm -2 on a bad day.


tbh, I had no clue ab drilling until the past 2 weeks, I did the stuff in the LR Bible, but knew NOTHING ab Cambridge packets or anything.

PTs really just serve two purposes: providing a snapshot of your current weaknesses, so that you can address them before the next PT, and simulating the test day experience.

I waste my morning hours too. I get up early and do yoga and meditation, so I can be all zen for the rest of the day, but then by the time I come home from work, I'm usually too exhausted to study. I need to hurry through my morning exercise so I can fit some quality studying in.



I think yoga and meditation are a great benefit...maybe you should try doing a small cycle 5-10 mins when you get home from work...I think the time spent getting your mind at rest, will improve the rest of your time.

Dirigo wrote:It depends on how good you are at predicting your scores. I wouldn't have been surprised if I 160'd today and ended up with a 171. Unless I know I bombed LG, then I really have no idea how I scored on the rest of it until I grade.
If you are pretty sure you did worse, then get that free test. If you're not sure, I say don't cancel and see what you get. Even though there were a lot of disappointed takers, there were also a good number or pleasantly surprised takers.


I'm really bad at guessing, and I'm unsure, but if I had to guess one way I would say worse. With that said, even if they do nothing ab the complaint, I will still prob keep my score. Otherwise, I will lose valuable info on how I did in the sections I was not affected by the problem, etc. I will need that test to study properly for the next test.

I guess worse comes to worse, I keep my score it is way worse than first take, and I have to pay to retake and put in crazy study hours, but maybe I can just add an addendum if I blow it out the park in dec.

And that always leaves room for the best case scenario which is that I am pleasantly surprised...too bad I'm too much of a realist :wink:

Ok, sorry for taking up so much of the thread for personal problems here!!! But, thanks for talking it out w me!!!

Yep, meditation's awesome. I do a 5 min one sometimes when I'm super stressed, but I really should be doing it everyday before drilling. That would def clear my head. Btw: another random science fact - meditation has also been shown in neuroimaging studies to change the structure of the brain


Yeah, I can see that being true! You literally feel like a new person after a good session. I did a 5 minute session before i took the test in June, and felt much more calm than I did in September when I was rushing to get to the test center and didn't have time for it.

Same here! I keep refreshing TLS at work in hopes the waiters got their scores. I'm so anxious for them to do well!

Just think, if we're this neurotic now without even taking the test, imagine how we're gonna be after Dec


The fact that we'll have to go through Christmas and New Years waiting doesn't sound so fun.

Yep. All I want for Xmas this year is an awesome LSAT score :( Maybe I should write a letter to Santa, LOL


Good idea, and I'll pray to Athena...

Yup. I'm gonna relax for about 2 hours and then sleep. I workout everyday in the morning so I can't stay up too late. 8)
