So much this. Also PWs. :mrgreen:

Update - I'm eating dinner right now. Mom went to sleep. Brudda and faddah are watching a movie. No contact made yet. Sigh.


I made first contact. My mom had me come down to choose what I wanted for dinner. I think they feel bad because we're getting Chinese. :mrgreen:

Hillz, I frequently reference you when I'm convincing people to retake middling scores. Yours is such a success story. At the end of your cycle, please write a reflective post for TLS.

Hillz, what's your story?! I'm intrigued/ready to be inspired.

I'm such a trendsetter.

Haha when she was texting me what I wanted for dinner inside I was like "Chinese! Chinese!" because of your post, but I didn't want to give her the satisfaction of me being anything other than blasé/indifferent. Then she suggested Chinese 8)

Happy waiting!

Yes at least with the LSAT you know exactly when it's supposed to happen and when to expect it.

Update: mom came down to the kitchen to see if I was eating dinner. She also said "The hotel was okay. Not great."

All I said was "Dinner is great mom, thanks."

She is now sitting here talking to me about the trip and I'm sitting here nodding and typing this. What is life.

Wait, she's trying to make you feel better about having been excluded? :shock:

I dunno, with the LSAT you're waiting on a score that so many other decisions hinge on - did I get the score I need or didn't I, will I apply this cycle or sit out, do I need to retake and if so when, should I commit to that job, what have you. When you're applying, you've ostensibly assembled the best application you can. It's pretty much out of your hands at that point, and I imagine that to be pretty relieving, wait or no wait.

The waitlist is a special kind of hell too, I imagine.

Well, first she came in and was like "Do you want to apologize to me?" for storming off earlier.

And I said "Dinner is great, thanks mom."

She's basically recounting all the bad points of the trip. I'm like UHH THAT'S CAUSE YOU WERE MISSING THE PARTY BUS, AKA YOURS TRULY.

I asked her when they went - she said Dec. 3-10th or something. And I said "Cool, mom. I had finals then."

:evil:

Just imagine if you had NO IDEA when your LSAT score release was happening. It could be as early as 3 weeks, or, you know, 5 months. And you had a tool that could check in on the status, but it only gave you A LITTLE INFO. Like if anyone has looked at your scantron yet.

Sorry for opening a can of worms, hillz. :oops:


Hi! I don't mind sharing.

Basically, I started studying back in Feb to take the June LSAT and I made a mid 160s score. I was really disappointed and felt that I had really underperformed partly due to outside factors (I got a promotion a few weeks before and my busiest time of year is in the summer). I was worried about taking the Sept. LSAT because it was only a couple of months away by the time we got June scores back and I spent a lot of time stressing out about not taking it/trying to quit my job/etc. etc. I ended up kicking it in to high gear and changed my strategy - rather than taking so many PTs, I focused on drilling and building up my weakness areas. I took in Sept and afterwards, felt really weird about it. I wasn't sure if I had done well or not, and I just made myself believe that I had gotten the same score as when I took previously so I wouldn't be disappointed when I got it back. I ended up making a score in the mid-170s.

Be brave enough to bet on you.

Yeah, but that's not a perfect analogy. It's not the length of the wait for LSAT results that kills me, it's the uncertainty of outcome upon which so many other decisions hinge. I don't care if my LSAT score didn't get released till February if I knew that whatever I was getting was what I was getting, and that was that.
