You guys did practice your pencil sharpening technique, right?

eta: Came home to 7 "good luck" emails from schools I've never heard of.

So are you allowed to wear a jacket to the test center? What if you take it off? Is it an "acceptable item"?

Okay guys.

Lets say you have one minute left for a section and there are five unanswered questions remaining, would you just bubble in D's?

I once read an analysis of what you should pick. I think it might have been in the LGB. IIRC, they said D is the best choice overall but I think C wins out under certain conditions.

I took my final practice test (PT 75) yesterday and it was my lowest score ever - even lower than my diagnostic - so I'm just like, whatever, I'll just take the lsat and then go be a software developer or something

What's the logic behind that? I thought it was a fair distribution.

It is generally, but the incidence of C decreases in the final five questions, if I recall what some guide said.

FYI - I think I just picked up the most bourgeois LSAT snack ever:

Whole Foods:
A Belvoir sparkling beverage
Chicken curry and ginger carrots on a bed of kale
A very mini 2" cheese cake, made with local, organic dairy

...due to the inclement weather, the Saturday, October 3, 2015 Law School Admission Test (LSAT) has been canceled. Information regarding a make-up test and other options will be emailed as soon as we know the status of staff and room availability on campus. We hope to provide an update in the coming week...

Good luck tomorrow everyone! Looks like Ill be doing PT 75 in the morning instead :shock:

DGAF, Idk it's something about this being my 3rd take yet knowing I'm taking in December as well that has me really relaxed for this thing. I'm sure I'll have the nerves a bit walking in and seeing all the people who have never even looked at a PT but still once we are sat down and checked in and proctor says go for section 1 then it's like muscle memory from there.


Ideal section distribution anyone??

For me I would have to say

RC
LR1
LG exp
LR2
LG


Worst scenario

LR1
LG
RC
LR2
RC

Either of the RC's being exp


Best:

LR
RC
LG

LR
LG

Worst:

RC
RC
LR

LR
LG

Trying my best not to worry, and I'm doing a damn fine job of it, considering how important this is. But I'm confident because all my recent PTs have been more than good enough to get me an acceptable outcome, and if I don't get what I want I can always retake in December. And the worst case scenario is I just do this all again next year, so whatever. No worries.

Good luck, guys. Positive thoughts.

I just checked my email and had a fee waiver AND 30 dollars of "iTunes codes" from Alabama. How am I supposed to pass that up?

Excited, with a side of barely holding it together.
